The Habakkuk Board came to be somewhat by accident. During a very powerful Prayer Challenge that I recently participated in, we were assigned to write down a list of requests of God and then hang it on our wall where it can be seen frequently.
Well, it just so happened that as an artist, I was working on a completely different project a few days before, for which I had painted a canvas that wouldn't actually work as I needed it to. Yet, immediately after the assignment was given, I realized what that board was actually for. Even though I didn't know prior to it being announced, God knew that this particular assignment was coming up and He had me prepared, not only to complete the assignment well, but to bless my life and the lives of others as we follow His word.
So I got the board and worked diligently, writing out all of my requests of God. So excited about having something that could easily hang on my wall where I could engage with it frequently to make declaration of the plans and promises of God for my life. Once it was complete I went online to the challenge group and made a post displaying it, but much to my surprise, the post was removed. Then suddenly, I remembered that the very same morning during our session, we were told that all posts are reviewed, but generally only removed if we were trying to promote our businesses, because that was not what the forum is for. I was literally so distraught because my intention was not ever to promote my business as an artist, but instead I was only sharing to inspire and show how cool my list ended up being.
It was so heavy on my heart as I began to prepare for the day, even to the point where as I set up out of bed I put my feet on the floor, put my elbows to my knees and hung my head in my hands, saying, "God why did this happen?" God's response was, "It needed to be removed, because that's a business for you." And at that very moment Habakkuk Boards were born! 💜
Then Yahweh answered me, “Write the vision. Make it clear on tablets so that anyone can read it quickly. The vision will still happen at the appointed time. It hurries toward its goal. It won’t be a lie. If it’s delayed, wait for it. It will certainly happen. It won’t be late."
Habakkuk 2:2-3 (NOG)
Each Habakkuk Board:
* Has been created with love.
* Has been made by hand.
* Has, "Habakkuk 2:2-3," painted on it, as the initial step of it's creation. (Script becomes embedded into the paint as the entire process is carried out.)
* Has been prayed over.
* Has been created to assist you in seeing the visions of God manifest in your life.
God is so good to us! When we trust Him and position ourselves to receive His counsel, by praying, studying His word and periodically fasting, He is delighted.
