Bible sharing passage for today.
“Then the Lord answered me and said: Write down the vision Clearly upon the tablets, so that one can read it readily. For the vision still has its time, presses on to fulfillment, and will not disappoint; If it delays, wait for it, it will surely come, it will not be late. The rash man has no integrity; but the just man, because of his faith, shall live.” (Habakkuk 2: 2 – 4
What has touched me?
Reading this passage the words that touch me are:
“If it delays, wait for it, it will surely come…”
These words seem to be addressed to me. At times, when I want something, I want it immediately. I am not ready to wait. When I pray, I want God to answer my prayer immediately. This passage is telling me that if God delays to answer my prayer, I should wait knowing the answer will surely come, and it will not be late.
I resolve that from today, when I want anything, I will pray for it and wait knowing God will grant it at the right time.
Word of life
My word of life from this passage is ‘just’
How shall I live this word?
I shall do my best to be just and to promote justice today and for the rest of my life. I shall speak out against injustice not violently but with charity.
God our father, help me this day to learn to be patient when I present my needs to you and also to be a champion of justice in my community
This is my humble prayer through Christ our Lord, Amen!
