For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.
Without vision, the people perish. Without vision, the people throw off restraint. Without vision, we operate toward an unspecified destination like the Israelites wandering in the desert. Without vision we have effort without outcome, we lack alignment and unity, we spend our days focused on what is passing instead of what is eternal.
Why would we operate—why would we live—without vision? Because we have to wait for it. We have to wait for its appointed time. It feels like it lingers, so we become inpatient to the revelation God is giving us and just want to do the work even if the appointed time has not yet come.
Ask God for calling. Pray for clarity, for revelation. And pray for patience to await the appointed time.
Jesus, we love you, and we trust you in all things. Make clear to us the path you are calling us to. Awaken a grasp of your commands that you have led us to follow, and let the next step become clear because you are the lamp to our feet and the light to our path. We trust you. Give us the faith that is needed to follow.
