“I will climb up into my watchtower and stand at my guardpost. Then I will wait to see what the Lord will say to me and how he will answer my complaint.  Then the Lord said to me, ‘Write my answer plainly on tablets, so that a runner can carry the correct message to others.  This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled.  If it seems slow, wait patiently, for it will surely take place.  It will not be delayed.’” Habakkuk 2:1-3 (NLT)
