Habakkuk 2:3 - "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.”
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 blank, or nothing but squiggly lines.
Periods in our lives make no sense or seem dull. But no panel can be opened until the one before it. And it takes all the sections to make up the picture. God is slowly opening His vision for your life and the world, and He knows the appointed time for the parts as well as the whole.
