Make It Plain

Habakkuk 2:2
Then the Lord replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.”

I intend to listen when God speaks. We should all focus on his words when we hear God speaking to a specific situation in our lives. We can write it down to remember what he said.

When God speaks to a nation, it should be made plain so the common man can understand. When God moves in a nation, it will be obvious. It will be prophesied about so that when it happens, we can all say we remember what God said about that.

God sends messengers ahead of his acts so he can make us understand why everything is happening the way it is. He sent Joseph (Genesis 41) ahead of the famine so that the people could prepare for it and not starve to death. Joseph spoke plainly and powerfully so that it was obvious to Pharaoh that Joseph was speaking wisdom from the Spirit of God.

The phrase “make it plain” stands out to me in the verse above. If God tells you to write something for others to read, you know it will be something that will benefit others either by a warning or a blessing. The “herald” who will run with it has to be able to understand in order to pass it on to others.

Are you hearing from God? How are you making your revelations from God plain so that others will be blessed?
