"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.” -Habakkuk 2:3

God’s plan unfolds like a Chinese fan. An artist paints a delicate scene of a waterfall, full of color. But the whole fan must be opened before the picture is revealed, and it’s opened one panel at a time. Sometimes a section is blan...

"I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; and I will put the fear of Me in their hearts so that they will not turn away from Me.” - >Jeremiah 32:40

People are qualified for liberty in proportion to their willingness to place chains on their own hearts, said Edmund Burke. A person without God’s fear—or reverence—in his heart requires external restraint. ...

The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. - 2 Peter 3:9

Often we try to trap God in our time schemes. We lay out plans and schedules, and expect Him to conform. God sent His Son into the world as quickly as the world was prepared to receive Him. When the Father saw that the sacrificial system with its types and shadows had be...

"Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure — pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return." - >Luke 6:38

Most merchandisers believe the secret to sales is in the packaging. Take, for example, breakfast cereal. Some boxes look big enough to feed a football team, but when you open them, there’s emptiness at the top....

"WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED." - Romans 10:13

The brutish Romans forced people to declare, “Caesar is lord!” Those who refused often perished. To call on Christ’s name for salvation rather than Caesar’s could be costly for Paul’s immediate audience. Today we’re tempted to think too casually about the implications of Christ’s name. Yet there is an empire of darkness tha...

"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.” - John 14:12

The greatness of Jesus’ strategy is that He began a global transformation movement with 12 ragtag men in a forgotten nation under occupation by a cruel empire. He stilled storms and fed 4,000 with fragments of food. He healed the blind, deaf, mute and lam...

"If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.” - John 14:3

I once worked in a tunnel back in the days I thought I would be an engineer. We were boring through an Alabama mountain where a big water conduit was to be placed. One contractor bored from the east and we dug westward. “Have they broken through yet?” I asked one morning. “Yes,...

“My people will be satisfied with My goodness," declares the LORD.

Jeremiah 31:14

A friend visited the home of the president of a Central American country. The political leader collected ancient Indian art. Six-foot stone spheres, carved by Aztecs, rested in his garden. My friend marveled at the perfect roundness. That was something satisfying to his soul about sublime roundedness. Humans have a passion for completeness rangi...

And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little boy will lead them. Also the cow and the bear will graze, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra, and the weaned child will put his hand on the viper's den. They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth will be full of ...
