Overlooking the walls of Jerusalem, so many scriptures come to mind. One of these scriptures is Habakkuk 2:1 that reads as follows:
“I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint.”
In Hebrew it refers to being positioned or standing as on a watchtower. When you observe the ancient walls of Jerusalem, you can clearly see the many watchtowers, stations, and positions ideally suited for her watchmen.
In Hebrew the part “…I will look to see what he will say to me…” actually says: “lir’ot ma yidaber bee” (…see what He will say inside of me). It’s a reminder that God speaks to us mainly through our spirit. He gives us the answers into our hearts, speaking inside of our innermost being.
God is preparing our hearts in order to lead us and place us as watchmen on His watchtowers. He is training and equipping us to hear His voice inside of us; to comprehend what is He is revealing to us with regards to our petitions, prayers and questions. When he speaks into our spirit in this manner, it is His Spirit depositing His vision inside of us.
Sometimes God will give us a vision and dreams, and it might take time before that vision or dream comes to pass. Israel is one of the best examples of that, because God spoke to His prophets thousands of years before it actually came to pass.
But these prophets were faithful to write down the vision and the prophesies, and as such it was passed along from generation to generation, until finally our generation has the privilege to live in the fulfilment of that vision.
Let’s carry the visions that has God given us, without growing weary or disappointed, as we wait patiently in faith, while standing as His watchmen on your Jerusalem’s walls.
Lord, I pray that you will speak to me and give me vision. I pray that you will also provide me with the answers and fulfilment to that vision. Speak to me in my innermost being, inside my heart, so that I will know what your will is for my life, and how to live my life to your glory. Amen.
