In this day and age, we tend to think we know everything. We think because we are young and clever, and obviously remember well, we will always remember. This is one of the most practical mistakes we make in our spiritual growth. Nothing supernatural, just plain logic. Even before paper were invented God knew that we forget. The first thing he told Habakuk before he started to answer his complaints was ——- WRITE IT ON YOUR TAB!
The Righteous Shall Live by His Faith
2 And the Lord answered me:
“Write the vision;
make it plain on tablets,
so he may run who reads it.
3 For still the vision awaits its appointed time;
it hastens to the end—it will not lie.
If it seems slow, wait for it;
it will surely come; it will not delay.
The important things to write down are:
1. Write down what you complained about, or asked God.
2. Write down what God promised. Make it clear so when it is done you can testify about it. We ten to forget what He promised, because sometimes it takes long for the fulfilment.
3. Write down prophetic words and words of knowledge you receive.
Writing down what God shows will enable you to see the big picture. We tend to see every word we get, every revelation we receive, every teaching we hear and every sermon we sit through as individual and separate instructions. Nothing can be further from the truth. God is busy with 1 thing at a time, and if you can take the time to write it on your tablet, everything will become clear.
Enjoy this festive season – Christ first!
