Vision!

Henry Taylor once said, “We are what and where we are, because we have first imagined it. Imagination lit every lamp, built every church, made every discovery, performed every act of progress and created better things for people. Imagination is the priceless ingredient for a better day.”

Everyone of us ends up somewhere but few of us end up somewhere on purpose.Unfortunately, too many of us aim far too low, end up hitting the target and wonder why life feels empty. Living life and conducting ministry with Godly vision is critical to our survival (Prov 29:18) and without vision for our future, we will keep repeating our past.

There were 4 characters in the bible (Abraham Gen 11; Joseph Gen 37; Moses Exodus 3; Peter Acts 10) who received Godly vision for their lives. What I’ve learnt about vision from their stories is:

  1. Godly vision flows out of a God-encounter – It’s not a childhood dream or fantasy…
  2. Godly vision establishes a new reality in our future – Vision acted upon will change your life…
  3. Godly vision is a revelation of what God wants to do on the earth – Keep God’s big picture in mind, not just you…
Vision is a clear and compelling God-given picture of the future. In Jesus life and ministry, vision played an important role. Vision gave Jesus focus when distractions hounded him to surrender his calling. Vision helped Jesus endure the shame of the cross. Vision inflamed Jesus heart with passion and gave us a picture of what is important in God’s house.
God’s got a unique journey for you and a unique vision for your journey. Maybe it’s time you got an upgrade on your vision and you need to seek God and ask him to download a fresh supply of vision into your heart and mind.
