Today, as the Holy Spirit works through His people, He is infusing a renewed inner strength, a fresh vision for His plan, and enhanced revelation of His Word. He is speaking to the spirit of people, and they must hear and adhere to what He imparts.

The prophet Habakkuk said, "I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved" (Hab. 2:1).

Notice he was watching and listening for the Word of the Lord.

"And He answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

"For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry; wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry" (vv. 2-3).

The Spirit said, "Write the vision."

To write is to describe clearly. You must describe clearly the vision or revelation you have from God. Seek Him to understand what you must do to walk in what He is revealing to you.

Now notice verse 3 again from Moffatt's. "The vision has its own appointed hour, it ripens, it will flower; if it be long, then wait, for it is sure, and it will not be late."

In the time of personal visitation, the Holy Spirit speaks and breathes into you fresh vision and revelation. Those divine impartations will come to pass if you will cling to them and not cave in.

It Will Not Be Late
He said, "…though it tarry (or delay), wait for it." To wait means "to adhere to." Stick to what you know, He said. He goes on to say, "…because it will surely come, it will not tarry."

The word tarry is used twice, though not translated from the same word. The message is this: What He speaks to you may seem to be delayed, but continue to adhere and walk in it, because it will come and not be late.

It is so important to be specific within yourself concerning the things in which the Holy Spirit is directing you. Cornelius described to Peter exactly what God had revealed to him. It brought Peter into a deep revelation that God is no respecter of persons.

Peter later described to the other apostles what both he and Cornelius had seen. The revelation went on to speak to many, and they understood a far deeper aspect of God's redemption than ever before.

Let Him Flood You
The Holy Spirit wants to strengthen your position in Him—strengthening your grip on the things you have known and drawing you into things you have not yet understood.

Paul prayed for the Ephesian church, "That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp…" (Eph. 3:18 AMP). It requires strength and power to grasp the things He is leading you in now!

Paul goes on in verse 19 to pray that you "…may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself!"

God is lifting His Body into a visitation of His presence. As you yield to that presence, you become an incarnation of His power. Let Him flood you with Himself today.
