As we all proclaim to be living our best life, a deeper look reveals that many of us are living a life of facade and pretentiousness. The trap is so easy when The South Florida lifestyle looks like luxury cars, summer homes and perfectly tanned friends. So, in this edition of On The Scene, let’s be reminded that waiting in perfection is not about faking it until you make it, but actually waiting on a perfect God to manifest what was promised to you. For a better understanding, let’s take a closer look at Habakkuk 2:3, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it lingers, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.”
For the vision… Before we begin to have the audacity to be complain and be complacent, let us come to terms with the vision that God currently has for our lives. Depending on where you are in life, you may have to renew your vision, you may have to ask God for clearer understanding of your vision and you may even have to revamp your vision all together. Nonetheless, vision is your compass, so always start there. Case in point, I am currently working on a project for an aviation company to provide customer service training to staff. Within seconds, I was able to help my client see, lack of vision, (mission and purpose) is the reason his staff failing to deliver top-notch customer service. Leaders must outline a vision for both their personal and professional endeavors.
Yet, there is an appointed time… I am constantly reminding myself, family and friends to trust the process. From the rising of the sun, to the going down of the same God reveals his perfect timing in all things. I recall wanting a keepsake of my grandmother after she passed when I was only 13 years old. 11 years later, after several moves, both nationally and internationally, I found a diamond and sapphire white gold ring that belonged to my grandmother while unpacking and moving into my first home. This was the appointed time for a keepsake such as this.
But we must speak… This idea of speaking life, the ability to declare those things that are not as though they are is a under used super-power. I recall speaking my way into a brand-new BMW convertible while in my 20s after being stranded on I-95 many days. I have even spoke my way out of poverty and poor health, and I am convinced that you have spoken yourself out of circumstances and situations too. In this season, despite every challenge, obstacle or lie they have ever told on you, let us be bold enough to speak the vision. I was listening to Sarah Jakes on Youtube, when she said, “sometimes, you gotta speak from the lowest version of you who into your highest position.” I believe this is how you get to a perfected position.
So, wait for it… Plant seeds and talk to your plants to be. Remember that God determines when they grow. And as you wait on your harvest, trust God’s perfect process. Waiting in His perfection is all about knowing, He has your winning season in mind.
