Watch and wait

“I will stand at my watchpost; I will station myself on the rampart. I will look to see what [God] will say through me and what I will answer when I am reproved.”
Habakkuk 2:1 CJB

Like Habakkuk, we need to be watching and listening for the LORD! What the LORD says and does is all that really matters!

“Human being, I have appointed you to be watchman for the house of Israel. When You hear a word from My mouth, you are to warn them for Me.”
Ezekiel 3:17 CJB

Understand, the word reproved or corrected isn’t the best translation. Habakkuk didn’t need to be corrected, he just needed to say the right thing! He is going to wait on the LORD to share the right message, give the right warning and direction from the LORD! Unfortunately, we often jump out and say something that isn’t quite right and then have to be corrected, instead just wait for the right word from the LORD!

“Hear, My people, while I give you warnings! Israel, if you would only listen to Me!”
Psalm 81:8 CJB

Like Habakkuk, we need to be listening for the voice of the LORD! Not a politician, celebrity or even a pastor but the LORD! No matter how things may look around us, let’s be patient watchmen, looking and listening for the LORD!
Have a blessed day!
