God reveal what we will become through our dreams so that we will focus on it,but the time is not now but many years to come.just like Joseph in the Bible who saw a very big dream but suffered many years even in prison before the dream come to pass.

This verse speaks volumes to what i am going through right now. Not sure how many here have recieved actual and true visions from God. But sometimes the appointed time is alot longer than any man woman would ever hope for even thier worst enemy. To all those who have whatever it was it will come to pass. Been three years plus for me now but i know when our lord speaks he follows through.

We must remain faithful to God no matter the delay , God will surely do what he revealed.

When God gives us a dream or any form of revelation, its fulfilment is not when we want it but at God 's own time. God cannot lie the Bible says it, whatever He reveals to us must surely come to pass at His own time not our own time, When it is His time u matter how long it takes, it must manifest.

God s time is not our time We must understand that God is God and we are humans We cannot force Him to answer our prayers we hv to just rely on Him and be watchful His words are ture formula and when we apply them we will always succeed

I think is about the coming of christ

Waiting with God is essential. What seem to be a long time may only be a second with God. He says 'your thoughtr are not my thought, and your ways are not my ways.' Here says to 'wait, though it tarries, it shall surely come and NOT tarry. ' So God's timing is ALWAYS on time.

Certain things may not happen as we expect the at the time, but itís important to learn to be patient and hopeful, that God will fulfill what is to be fulfilled in our live at the right time, according to Godís timetable.

I think Habakkuk is letting us know that when we pray, even though it may seem as though God has not heard our prayer, He is listening and only when He says it is time will He answer it. God's delay is not His denial. When it is time it is going to happen, we have to keep the faith and believe. Faith and patience are the key. When it is time there will be no tarrying. It's in God's timing! He may not come when we want Him, but He is always right on time.
