A Vision Takes Process
By Eric Jinkwen : –
Habakkuk 2:3 “For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”
A vision doesn’t get fulfilled the same day, it takes a process
The law of process teaches us that some accomplishments takes time to be fulfilled. Some achievements needs time to be built. We live at a time when many young people want to bypass process and just arrived at the final product.
To have a chocolate, there is a process from the cocoa farm to the factory. To have a baby, there is a process from pregnancy to delivery. To become a successful man, there is a process from work to achievements. To have a big house, there is a process from foundation to roofing.
If there is no process, there is no final product.
So, it is in every aspect of life. There must be a vision and there must be a process to arrive at the fulfillment of the vision. Our God also operates that way.
Habakkuk the prophet was complaining in chapter one about the condition of his people. “O Lord, how long shall I cry, and You will not hear? Even cry out to You, “Violence!” And You will not save. Why do You show me iniquity, And cause me to see trouble? For plundering and violence are before me; There is strife, and contention arises.”
You may be in such condition and questioning right. You may have cried, prayed, fasted, retreated and done all you knew was right to do; but there seem to be no response from God.
Don’t get discourage, remember what God told you from the beginning. This was God’s response to Habakkuk, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it. Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”
The vision is for an appointed time, Wait for It. It only speaks at the end, not at the beginning or the middle. There is a process. Between the vision and the fulfillment, there is a process.

Many times, the process is very hard. Imagine the children of Israel crossing the red sea and the desert to arrived at the Promise Land. Imagine Jesus going through the suffering of the cross, enduring insults and yielding to death to enter into His glory and save mankind.
The process. The process of waiting is sometimes painful and challenging. Process comes most of the times with pressure. Don’t give up the dream. Though it taries, wait for it. Praise the Lord!
May God strengthen you in the process and give you grace not to give up in Jesus name, amen. Hallelujah!
