"Waiting" Habakkuk 2 stw

Habakkuk 2 synopses

At the beginning of Habakkuk 2; Habakkuk is in waiting, waiting on the word from the Lord regarding His complaints and remarks in the previous chapter. "I will stand upon my watch, and set myself upon the tower, and will watch to see what He will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved." He knows he will be corrected, but diligently sets him self up to wait and see what the Lord has to say. Habakkuk gets His answer, the Lord responds "Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, so he may run that reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not delay." 

God tells this to Habakkuk before anything else. God's word will stand and it's always true. God goes on to tell Habakkuk of His displeasure with the Babylonians and how they will come to an even greater destruction. The Babylonians are idol worshipers and idols are so useless. God reassures Habakkuk that He is God. He is Holy: "But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him" So the Lord gives Habakkuk the answer he was waiting on. Not only does He answer Habakkuk but He tells Him to write it, share it, remember it, for it shall come to pass.

This is such an awesome an monumental scripture because it reflects Gods communication with us. It is imperative to wait and look for a word from the Lord just as Habakkuk did. He deliberately set himself up to wait for the Lord(2:1) and I doubt He was going anywhere until He got his answer. We should have such communication with the Lord that He satisfies us with an answer and we can go out and share the word we received if it is meant to be shared That is the whole purpose of this "Spread The Word" campaign to share the word, but we ourselves must have been in the presence of God to receive it.Wait =Serve. How are you serving?  Did you read along? What's your take on this powerful scripture?
