The Lord has given every one of us a vision for our lives. It may be a ministry, a calling, a family, a career or even a project. Many of you have had situations arise in your life, which make the God given vision seem as if it was a figment of your imagination. What you don’t realize is that this vision (assignment) is for an appointed time.
The Lord says,
“I am calling you back to pursue the vision that you once had and the callings that I have placed on your lives. 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 assignment. Continue to nurture and protect the vision that has been impregnated on the inside of you. Recognize the process of development. You will also give birth 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 I have placed in your heart, your perseverance will propel you into your destiny. The misfortunes that were sent to destroy you will strengthen you if you stay on course. Write the vision and reestablish it in your life once again. It will certainly come to pass in its appointed time. Trust Me to continue to guide you in the vision that I have for your life.”
… says the Lord.
“He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper” Psalm 1:3.
“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven” Ecclesiastes 3:1.
“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. ” Behold the proud, his soul is not upright in him; but the just shall live by his faith” Habakkuk 2:2-4.
