Ask in Faith, Expect an Answer

John Hagee

“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 2:3

Habakkuk stood face to face with perhaps the more difficult spiritual problem confronting believers. Everything that constituted life as Habakkuk knew it was about to be destroyed; nothing seemed secure. For Habakkuk, the future not only looked bleak, it was terrifying, and all the more so because God did not seem to be doing anything about it. “Why is it,” we can hear Habakkuk cry, “that when I ask God for help, things only go from bad to worse? Doesn’t God care about me? Or isn’t He strong enough to help?”

 

God’s response was that yes, He did care about Habakkuk and that yes, He was sufficiently strong enough to do whatever needed to be done to ensure that Habakkuk and His people would not only survive, but thrive (Hab. 3:19). The prophetic message of Habakkuk is that while God may at times appear to be inactive in the face of rampant violence (Hab. 1:2-4), He controls events far larger than even His prophets knew in order to ensure that His purposes for individual people are accomplished (Hab. 1:5). Habakkuk had to keep on living, however, in the meantime – that agonizingly long period between God’s promise and its fulfillment. The real difficulty facing God’s prophets – and no less so for those of us who are called to believe God's prophetic word – is the question, “How long?”

Like, Job, Habakkuk was not a disinterested party. Habakkuk not only spoke about trouble, he lived through it. Because Habakkuk experienced the things about which he wrote, we can be absolutely confident that he is right when he says that God’s action on behalf of believers “will surely come; it will not tarry” (Hab. 2:3) and that “the just shall live by His faith” (Hab. 2:4).

If you pray for something and it doesn’t happen right away, keep prayin.

For some of you, 30 minutes after the prayer has left your lips you are wondering why God hasn’t heard you. Guess what? He heard you. Right this second might not be the timing He has in mind for your big finish. Hang on!

The God of the mountaintop is the God of the valley. Anyone can sing when the sun is shining, but you also need a song in your heart at night. It’s not what you’re going through; it’s what you’re going to that matters. Keep your eye on the prize!

Write down your proclamation of faith and begin watching for every sign that God is on the horizon, diligently working on your behalf. Anyone can look at the bitter facts of life and abandon their faith. Anyone can rush to disbelief. It takes a person of faith, courage, and purpose to focus on the finish line.

Focus on the joy of victory! Focus on the impact of living life without limit! Focus on the fact that the God we serve cannot fail!

MY BLESSING TO YOU:

And now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you, giving you His peace. May you walk every day of this new year in the divine assurance that God is taking you to your promised land that is flowing with milk and honey; that your enemies will be defeated and your foot will be on the neck of your adversary. May the grapes of your harvest be abundant and the vats of new wine overflow. The wheat will be as golden grain because the Lord is the Lord of abundance and He is the God who is looking after you.

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad! Our hope is in the Lord!
