THE VISION IS FOR AN APPOINTED TIME
Every one of us has received a promise, a prophetic word or a vision for our lives. It may be a ministry, a family, a career or even a project. You may be called to the fivefold ministry or a healing ministry. Some of you had situations arise in your life, which make your God given vision seem as if it was a figment of your imagination. What you don’t realize is that the vision is for an appointed time.
The Lord is calling you back to pursue the vision that you once had. God’s gifts and calling are irrevocable, and everything that He ordained for you to do shall come to pass. Just as a pregnant woman does not see the baby immediately but goes through a nine month process before giving birth, the vision has a due date and it is for an appointed time. Do not be dismayed by adverse circumstances which seem to cancel your promise.
Continue to nurture and protect the vision that has been impregnated inside of you. Recognize the process of development, knowing that you will give birth to that vision in due season. There are seasons for planting and seasons for reaping. There is an appointed time for everything to come into fruition. Do not allow discouragement to overwhelm you or lead you in the wrong direction.
The assignments sent from the enemy are meant to divert your attention off your purpose, but as you pursue your vision and the dream that the Lord has placed in your heart, your perseverance will propel you into your destiny. The misfortunes of the past that were sent to destroy you will only strengthen you if you stay on course. Write the Vision and reestablish it in your life once again. It will certainly come at the appointed time. The Lord says; trust Me, and though the vision tarries, wait on it, for it will surely come to pass.
Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!
I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch to see what He will say to me, and what I will answer when I am corrected. 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.
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
