I See It—Running with 09!
Running with 09 takes a different path than previous years; we have walked through completion (07), new beginnings (08) and now comes the transition (09) in preparation for the emergence of New Order (10).
09 is a strategic time of transition. Are you ready to run with 09? God is going to solidify and bring into fruition many of the visions, plans and purposes that you have received from him. Despite what you see in the natural realm and the economical climate the coming year holds great promise for The Body of Christ (which differs from the church) in 09.
And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
Habakkuk 2:2 offers powerful revelation; we know that Habakkuk inquired or asked the Lord a question or series of questions and that verse 2 provides insight into the response that Habakkuk received. In order to have a true vision of the Lord we must first ‘ask the Lord’ and do as Habakkuk did, let the Lord answer us.
This is important because running with 09 requires us to put away good ideas and act on God-ideas. A close examination of what we are doing from an honest heart will allow us to honestly assess what we are doing. The vision that you are working right now, at this moment; is it a good idea or a God idea? If it is not a God-idea it will not survive 09.
It is important to note that Habakkuk had a prayer life and an ear to hear. When the LORD responded to his inquiry he was spiritually positioned to hear the answer and to know that it was the Lord speaking (Habakkuk 3:1-2). Running with 09 will require us to have developed prayer lives and to fine tune our hearing and discernment so that the Lord can speak to us. Habakkuk said “And the Lord answered me…” not he answered his pastor, his prophet, his mentor, his prayer partner, etc. He spoke to Habakkuk and he will speak to you.
Write the vision. What vision? Not Habakkuk’s vision but the vision of the Lord as given to Habakkuk concerning the events and happenings of the times. We would like to take this verse and make it apply to the layout for our ministerial plans as we see them but God was speaking to Habakkuk on a universal level, he was speaking of nations.
How can God hold his tongue when those that are wicked are afflicting those that are righteous? Running with 09 is a time of universal transition! It is a time of shifting to make way for God’s new order.
Are you ready to transition so you can be strategically positioned to fulfill God’s purpose for your life? Remember that running with 09 is not an accident; it is the result of intentionally and purposely capturing God’s vision for you and making it plain. God’s plan is not an accidental success story but one written before the foundation of the world.
