New Vision

My Post (6)

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. Habbakuk 2:3

This has always been one of my favorite verses, and I associated it my writing, but it has been so much more. Habbakuk is instructed to write down the vision, many people are doing this even now. I knew it was for a moedim, an appointed time, but when I was reading and even praying it, I did not understand how God kept time.

He is on His calendar and He lives in eternity, so He steps out of it into our realm by the Spirit, to guide and show us things to come, but it is up to us to hold fast to His promises and rhema words that can be specific to us, and we have to remain in His love and will. So, it is a good idea to write the vision, whether it is something specific to God or just your own plans, trust me, His are even better, even if you have missed an appointed time, He can still get it back to you.

Proverbs 29:18 says without vision people perish, but obeying the law blesses them. We are under grace and the commandment Jesus gives is to love, but the verse is no less true.

Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law. ESV  This included the word prophetic, in Samuel’s day there were no open visions but that changed as Christ’s birth drew near and is here by the Spirit and happens as He pours out the Holy Spirit in the last days before His return.

When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the law is joyful NLT

I have always hated bifocals, I never got the hang of them, so real vision is something I look forward to once more as part of healing. It makes me think of how the scales had to fall from the eyes of Paul, for him to really receive from Jesus. He was blinded after hearing Jesus call him on the road to Damascus.

But Jesus healed many blind people, some may have had a spirit of blindness, some could have sustained injuries or been afflicted with a disease. Some thought it was the man’s sin or his parents and Jesus said neither one.  Whatever the case, he could both heal and forgive.

I like the story of the Jesus healing the man who washed in the pool but his vision was still unclear, Jesus spat on the ground and put the clay on the man’s eyes, I believe He could have made him new eyes right there. If anyone had to spit in my eyes, I’d rather it be Jesus, and he was spat on for me, dear Lord, what love.

So, let’s pray today to receive healing and deliverance from both real and spiritual blindness, in His name, may He touch our eyes that we may have insight on  the vision He has for us, and real vision to read His Word, the enemy blinds the minds of those won’t believe, even believers who are not receiving the instructions the Lord gives them. We want to have eyes to see clearly the vision for the appointed time. Thank you, Jesus, for eyes to see.
