Welcome to the month of June! We have entered the midst of the year and divine truths will to be revealed to men. If you are eager and willing to learn, you will know God’s purpose and plan for your life during this time…but if you don’t care about the season you are in, the month of June and July will come and go and you will not get anything out of it, let alone understand what God is saying in this season.
Habakkuk 3:2 says “O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.” So what does “in the midst of the years” mean in Habakkuk 3:2?
Midst of the years
Generally we have 12 months in 1 year so midst of the year is days and weeks between the month of June and July. To be more specific, it would mean the months of June and July.
For example, If you started a program that lasts for 7 years, then midst of the “years” would be the fourth (4) year when God shall make certain things known and to revive His work. During this period, God makes known and reveals Himself.
Revival in the Midst of the years
Habakkuk 3:2 makes us understand that when the prophet heard the word of the Lord, He was afraid, this means that this is a period of chastening, which must be fulfilled.
But “God in His wrath remembers mercy most, He deepens penitence, stirs up prayer, creates heart-searching and earnest endeavours after a new life”. This is a time for revival and those who key into it will benefit from this season.
Prayer in the Midst of the Years
- It is good to use Habakkuk 3:2 when praying during this time – to remind God of His word. The first bit of the prayer is that God would revive His work in you, and especially to do His will and follow His ways.
- The second part of the prayer is that God would “make known”, which is to reveal divine truths /Himself. Thus God would not only work but will also reveal. Pray that God would reveal Himself to men.
