Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry” -Habakkuk 2:2-3.
GOD created each and every one of us with a purpose and a God-given vision. We often lose sight of this vision as life begins to unfold, we even question whether the vision was from GOD and whether it’ll still happen or not. A late man of GOD once said “the richest place in the world is the graveyard because that is where you’ll find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled.” This means that it is possible to die without fulfilling your God-given purpose.
2 Corinthians 13:5a in the Message Bible reads, “Test yourselves to make sure you are solid in the faith. Don’t drift along taking everything for granted. Give yourselves regular checkups.” This God-given purpose and vision can only be fulfilled in and through Christ, so before we evaluate whether we are on course, we ought to make sure that we are still walking with Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. We need to constantly check our faith walk, Proverbs 14:12 tells us, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” The saddest part is that when we are so confident in ourselves that we are on track, we won’t even know when the Holy Spirit has left us, just like with Samson (Judges 16:20) and this can only land us in big trouble.
The enemy is always close by to steal our God-given purpose and vision, his aim is to destroy and kill it before it materializes because he knows the damage it will do to his kingdom (John 10:10). Let us not be ignorant of his devices and work on our relationship daily and check up with the LORD if we are still on course. You have the whole of Heaven backing you, you won’t fail! Stay the course, it shall soon come to pass.
The saddest part is that when we are so confident in ourselves that we are on track, we won’t even know when the Holy Spirit has left us, just like with Samson
