You are Treasured
God has taken of His treasured ones and placed them in safe keeping until the time of their call. This can be a very lonely place if we don't recognize that we are in this position according to the hand of God.
How many of you now feel forgotten by God although you have served Him faithfully?
How many of you are wondering why the promises that you believe you have received have not come to pass? God has not forgotten! He is faithful to bring forth what He has promised and will do so at the appointed time.
2 Then the Lord answered me and said, " Record the vision
And inscribe it on tablets,
That the one who reads it may run. 3 "For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it;
For it will certainly come, it will not delay.
This was God's reply to the prophet Habakkuk when he complained to the Lord that the land had become filled with evil and he couldn't comprehend what he viewed as God's lack of response.
The Prophet had complained...
Why are You silent when the wicked swallow up
Those more righteous than they?
I am amazed at the Lord's patience with us who endeavor to feebly serve Him. He didn't admonish the prophet for his lack of faith in the promise of God, He simply told him that the promise is sure.
What so many of us fail to grasp is that the Lord of all creation never does anything in a vacuum. What He has promised us is connected to, and interwoven with, every other promise to each individual, , as well as the bringing forth of His purpose throughout the earth.
