Jesse Tree Day 19: The Watchtower
Hi and welcome to our Illustrated Jesse Tree, aka our Advent devotional where we look back at the Old Testament and see God winking at us. Today’s reading? The watchtower!
A Reading from the Book of Habakkuh (Habakkuh 2:1-4)
I will stand upon my watch, and fix my foot upon the tower: and I will watch, to see what will be said to me, and what I may answer to him that reproveth me.
2 And the Lord answered me, and said: Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables: that he that readeth it may run over it.
3 For as yet the vision is far off, and it shall appear at the end, and shall not lie: if it make any delay, wait for it: for it shall surely come, and it shall not be slack.
Behold, he that is unbelieving, his soul shall not be right in himself: but the just shall live in his faith.
