Chapter-a-Day Habakkuk 2

Impatient. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It's on its way. It will come right on time. Habakkuk 2:3b (MSG)

There is a time for everything. That's what wise King Solomon wrote about 3,000 years ago. The Mamas and the Papas even put it to music and made it famous 40 years ago. Some messages bear repeating. We are all anxious children bouncing up and down and whining in anticipation. We don't want to wait. We want what we want, and we want it NOW!

We need to hear the message repeated. Innocent children slow to ponder our Father's words and reticent to let them soak into our minds and heart, we need the constant reminder.

Chill. Be patient. It will happen when it's supposed to happen.

  1. That’s my verse! I have it at home, posted on my wall at work, and written on a scrap paper in my wallet!
    The version I have written states at the end “…it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” That is a comfort and an assurance to me … when I remember it!
    Thanks again, Tom for your great perspective of the scripture giving us a unique daily devotional 🙂
    Have a great weekend friend!
