Living by your own faith is a mistranslation of Habakkuk 2 verse 4

Habakkuk is known as the prophet of faith. In the course of his prophecy he reveals his unshakeable faith in God.

Habakkuk’s  statement “the just shall live by faith” (Habakkuk 2:4)  is quoted three times in the New Testament, in Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11 and in Hebrews 10:37-38.

Romans 1:17 For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

Galatians 3:11 Clearly no one is justified before God by the law, because, “The righteous will live by faith.”

VISION – Boldly manifesting the life of your dreams is the word of the day

jump for joyThe word for the day at dailyword.com is VISION. Referencing the book of Habakkuk, today’s meditation at the site is on manifesting the life of your dreams, by having a clear vision.

Vision: I seize the bold vision to manifest the life of my dreams.

To visualize the life I desire, I may create a vision board to capture my intentions in words and pictures. Or I might write in a journal about my aspirations, outlining in detail all that is possible.

Doubts may creep in, causing me to question the validity of my ambitions. If so, I look beyond any perceived limitations. If I am concerned about my age, resources or timing, I courageously affirm: My dreams are God-inspired. I seize the bold vision to manifest the life of my dreams.

 

I am bolstered by this affirmation as I align with the vibration of a higher vision. I open to unseen possibilities and joyously witness the unfoldment of my dreams.

Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, … For there is still a vision for the appointed time.—Habakkuk 2:2, 3
