Many of you have probably heard “Write the vision and make it plain”. There is more to it than that, though…in the King James Version of the Holy Bible, it reads as follows: Habakkuk 2:2-3 “And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”
Here we see that there is a specific set of instructions: write the vision, make it plain, and wait for it. Let’s consider these instructions, but first let’s consider this: in order to write the vision you first have to receive the vision. God speaks to us in many ways, but being in proper position to hear from Him clearly is important. When we receive a vision from God, to keep it before us we ought to write it. In modern times the way we’ve seen visions “written” is on a vision board. Typically, you’ll find that the vision is both written and made plain when depicted on display boards.
**Side Note: a few months ago someone mentioned making a vision binder and separating the sections with dividers. That idea is a more compact and portable option and I think I’ll try it soon.
Pictured below is a photo of my vision board from last year, but I just recently decided to put it back up in my office in my direct view. This is because I want it to serve as a constant reminder of what God showed me and what I believe will manifest.
Here’s the thing, once you’ve written the vision and made it plain, you ought to ask yourself this: “Am I ready for THAT?” The THAT being referenced here is THE HEAVENLY APPOINTED TIME. The Bible says though it tarry, or takes a while to manifest, wait for it because it will SURELY come. I must admit, that when I created the above pictured board in the beginning of 2015 I thought I was ready for THAT, but some of what was shown to me didn’t happen last year. However, as I review the plainly written vision on my board and I consider the events of this year, it is evident that THAT is happening now and I wasn’t as ready as I thought. Doors have been opening, divine connections have been made, and prayers have been getting answered but it’s all happening so fast. It is a blessing. The one thing that I did differently this year is I made a conscious decision to invest in becoming a greater me so I could better serve others. I believe that is what accelerated the manifestation. The vision that God gives you is for His glory and we are just the vessels to carry out His divine plan. Every song that will be sung, every book that will be written, every relationship that will develop, and EVEN the blogposts of Danielle’s Place were predestined to happen at an appointed time and are ALL designed to bring Him glory. As YOU prepare for THAT, I encourage you to approach the wait with faith and with a servant’s heart…it will surely come!
