And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, That he may run that readeth it (Habakkuk 2:2 KJV)
The Lord spoke to prophet Habakkuk in the days when Chaldeans were extending their conquest and causing panic worldwide. He then instructed Habakkuk to write the vision, that is, the Word of God which he had received, and to make plain upon writing tablets. He goes further to explain why He is asking Habakkuk to write it down: so “that he may run that readeth it”.
When the Lord gives you a vision or a prophetic word, write it down and make it plain. Keep it before your eyes and run with it. You run with a vision when you put in the time, energy, and resources needed to fulfill that vision. Do not forget what God has told you. Please do not allow the fire of it to quench. Circumstances have a way of making us either forget God’s Word or quenching the excitement and zeal we had initially when we first received it.
Make sure you write down the vision God gives you. Read it again and again, and think about it repeatedly. Run with it. Do not slow down, even when life comes against you. Remember, challenging circumstances will come your way once you receive a vision because of the vision. They come to make you stop believing it or be discouraged. Hold that Word and run with it!
Put yourself in the verse above. Habakkuk is no longer here. You are here now. What does the message above mean to you?
APPLY THE WORD
If you do not have the habit of writing down what God has told you or the visions you have, please start doing so. There is power in writing and revisiting at a later date. Write, read, and run with God’s vision.
Ask the Father to the grace to write, read, and run with what He tells you.
