And expectantly wait for Your answer
I will look up!

11 But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name
Be joyful in You.
12 For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
With favor You will surround him as with a shield.

Write the Vision

November 28, 2015

Habakkuk 2:1-3 NASB … I will stand on my guard post
And station myself on the rampart;
And I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me,
And how I may reply when I am reproved.

From NetBible Hab 2:1

guard post[04931] = a place to watch, observe
rampart[04692] = strong tower/ fortress, a place hemmed in
keep watch[06822] = wait expectantly, look up

2 Then the Lord answered me and said,
“Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets,
That the one who reads it may run.

From NetBible Hab 2:2

record[03789] = write
inscribe[0874] = make it plain/clear
may run = *run [through it quickly with one’s eyes]
=> so it can be read easily

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.

Need a specific vision or guidance from the Lord?

  1. Set aside a time of prayer/worship each day to meet with the Lord in the secret place
  2. Ask the Lord to hem you in and lay His hand upon you

    Psalm 139:5 NIV … You hem me in—behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.

    Ezekiel 40:1-2 NASB … In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after the city was taken, on that same day the hand of the LORD was upon me and He brought me there. 2 In the visions of God He brought me into the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain, and on it to the south there was a structure like a city.

    From NetBible Ezek 40:1

    • *Hand upon in the OT can refer metaphorically to power, authority, or influence. In Ezekiel God’s hand being on the prophet is regularly associated with communication or a vision from God
      =>Ezekiel 1:1-3; 3:12-14, 22; 8:1; 37:1; 40:1
  3. Expectantly wait in worship for the Lord’s answer
    Look up! => Keep thanking the Lord for what He is doing in your life
  4. Write what the Lord shows you so it can be easily read
  5. Keep the vision where you can easily read it
  6. Ask and trust that the Lord will send others to help accomplish the vision – trust His provision for His vision
  7. Be faithful to take the next step in accomplishing the vision when it is presented by the Lord

On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided!

From NetBible Gen 22:14

  • provided[07200] = seen, looked at, perceived, have vision

God’s Provision

February 7, 2014

Hebrews 11:1 NKJV … Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Trust in the Lord’s provision
Lift up your eyes and look expectantly for it.

Psalm 145:15-16 NKJV … The eyes of all look expectantly to You, and You give them their food in due season. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

Psalm 145:15 AMP … The eyes of all wait for You [looking, watching, and expecting] and You give them their food in due season.

Psalm 145:16 NLT … When you open your hand, you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.

Ps145_16

Trust in the Lord
The Lord’s hand opens to those who expectantly wait on Him
And they are filled/satisfied with good things.

Psalm 104:27-28 AMP … These all wait and are dependent upon You, that You may give them their food in due season. 28 When You give it to them, they gather it up; You open Your hand, and they are filled with good things.

Psalm 104:28 NIV … When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.

Forget not all His benefits

Psalm 103:1-5 AMP
1 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits—
3 Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy;
5 Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]!

Trust in the Lord
Wait on, expect, look for and hope in Him
His hand will open
And you will be filled/satisfied with good things
So that your strength will be renewed
Like the eagles – strong, overcoming, soaring!

Isaiah 40:31 AMP … But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

O satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days! -Ps 90:14

Faith for Things Unseen

Faith For Things Unseen

November 28, 2013

Hebrews 11:1 AMP … Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].

Hebrews 11:1 NKJV … Now faith is the *substance[5287] of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith is the firm foundation of our hope
All we’ve seen of God’s provision
Teaches us to trust Him and have faith for things unseen!

The Son is the exact nature/substance of God
Faith in Jesus Christ is the substance/firm foundation of our hope!

Hebrews 11:6 AMP … But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].

Hebrews 3:14 … For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance{substance[5287]} firm until the end …

Hebrews 10:22-25 AMP
22 Let us all come forward and draw near with true (honest and sincere) hearts in unqualified assurance and absolute conviction engendered by faith (by that leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), having our hearts sprinkled and purified from a guilty (evil) conscience and our bodies cleansed with pure water.

23 So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word.

24 And let us consider and give attentive, continuous care to watching over one another, studying how we may stir up (stimulate and incite) to love and helpful deeds and noble activities,

25 Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching.

Hold fast the substance of our faith in Jesus Christ until the end!

Word Study.

From Netbibe: Heb 11:1

  • substance[5287] = a setting or placing under, firm foundation, confidence, firm trust, assurance
    *from a compound of [5259] = place under
    and [2476] = make to stand, firm, fixed, established on sound foundation

From Vine’s Expository Dictionary

  • [5287] is translated “substance”
    (a) in Hebrews 1:3, of Christ as “the very image” of God’s “substance;” here the word has the meaning of the real nature of that to which reference is made in contrast to the outward manifestation (See the preceding clause); it speaks of the Divine essence of God existent and expressed in the revelation of His Son. The AV, “person” is an anachronism; the word was not so rendered till the 4th cent. Most of the earlier Eng. versions have “substance;”
    (b) in Hebrews 11:1 it has the meaning of “confidence, assurance” (RV), marg., “the giving substance to,” AV, “substance,” something that could not equally be expressed by elpis, “hope.”

From Netbibe: Heb 1:3
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His nature{substance[5287]}, and upholds all things by the word of His power. …

  • The Son, Jesus Christ is the exact nature/substance of God

From Netbibe: Heb 3:14
For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance{substance[5287]} firm until the end …

  • Hold fast the substance of our faith until the end

Eyes to See

January 22, 2012

Pray for eyes to see My provision.

I know it’s dark and that
There are obstacles that can not be moved in your own strength
Trust Me to roll away the stone.

Trust Me and look up
Lift up your eyes.

When they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away. -Mk 16:4

Then on the third day Abraham lifted his eyes and saw the place afar off. Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey, and I and the lad will go over there; and we will worship and return to you.” …

… Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham called the name of the place, The–LORD–Will–Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of The LORD it shall be provided{seen}.” -Gen 22:4-5, 13-14

Open the eyes of our hearts LORD!

Ephesians 1:17-19 … I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation in your growing knowledge of him, – since the eyes of your heart have been enlightened – so that you may know what is the hope of his calling, what is the wealth of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the incomparable greatness of his power toward us who believe, as displayed in the exercise of his immense strength.

Who Will Roll Away the Stone?

Desert Song

February 28, 2011

This is my prayer in the desert
When all that’s within me feels dry
This is my prayer in my hunger and need
My God is the God who provides!

And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon forged against me shall remain
I will rejoice, I will declare
God is my victory and He is here.

Exodus 16:4 Then the Lord said to Moses, “I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow My instructions”.

God’s people in the desert could not provide for themselves. They could not plant or harvest, they could not buy or sell. God gave manna one day at a time – it could not be stored up. They had to rely on God alone for provision.

Do you find yourself in the desert place? Are you relying on God alone to lead you thru?

The desert can be a place of wonder and awe at the care and provision of the Lord.

Don’t give up! You could be closer to your oasis than you think!
