Writing the Vision

Samuel Pepys rose from humble origins to become one of the most important men of his day. A friend to kings. Member of Parliament. President of the Royal Society. England’s earliest Secretary of the Admiralty. But Pepys is best remembered for a diary that he began writing in 1660. Through the more than 1.2 million words, he left a vivid picture of life in extremely turbulent times.

Born in London on this day in 1633, Pepys was unusually honest in his diary, with candid comments about others and himself. As he observed royalty, he described how “the more a man considers and observes them, the less he finds of difference between them and other men.”

Each of us has the opportunity to observe events in our time. It is valuable to be a sensitive observer. But most important is remaining faithful, doing whatever God calls us to do.

This was part of the message God gave to Habakkuk. He was to remain alert, standing on his watch, listening for God’s direction. When He spoke, the prophet was to write it down. Then others could “run.” They would know His will and what to do.

Today, remember that God’s plans for you and the world remain as clear as they have been throughout the ages. Remember: He has a unique calling just for you. Pray for understanding and wisdom. Read His Word. Be alert and ready to receive whatever He wants to reveal to you. Faithfully do whatever He calls you to do. Trust Him.
