“And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” –Habakkuk 2:2-3
The vision is for an appointed time, but you must first grasp it in your mind’s eye. It is difficult to bring about a plan you have not first envisioned. When God provides direction for your life, it will be based on His Word and spiritual insight He has given to you. It may be through an open vision, dream, or Word of Wisdom spoken to you by a pastor, apostle, prophet, evangelist, or teacher.
As you meditate on the Word of God, there are a number of things that should happen. By meditating on scripture, you are establishing a mechanism by which you can grow your faith. Your faith will further increase when you begin to say what you have meditated on. Your words become prophetic as you continue to mutter them aloud.
In essence, you are prophesying to yourself in accordance with the Word. Speak the Word aloud daily, and rehearse in your hearing what you hope for; for faith is the substance of things hoped for, and it comes by hearing—and hearing—and hearing again.Hear yourself stating your plan of execution. After you recapitulate your plan in your psyche, uttering what you have meditated on—it’s time to write the vision.
Lastly, write the vision. Make it plain. It does not matter if your first outline is on a paper napkin over lunch; devise your plan. The more you meditate, verbalize, and write out your vision, the more your momentum is being exercised, and you will soon see the vision come to pass!
Write, read, and utter your vision. Surely, it shall come to pass!
