THE SECRET: REVIVING VISION IN YOUR LIFE
Foundational Bible on the subject of Vision
Proverbs 29:18 - Where there is no vision the people are unrestrained. (NASB)
Habakkuk 2:2 - The the LORD answered and said, “Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets that the one who reads it may run. For the vision is yet fro an appointed time; It hastens towards the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay.” (NKJV)
No vision, know pain....
When I was younger and my wife and I lived in our first home, she was a notorious furniture mover. One night I went to bed early and she stayed up a bit and moved the furniture in the house. I got up to get a drink of water and fell over the newly moved coffee table. The problem? My vision needed to be renewed and updated because, well, things had changed!
It is important to renew vision. Without a clear vision you are immobile, never able to chose the good from the average and more importantly the best from the good. Without vision, your life moves from a powerful stream into a swamp with no boundaries. In that state you will say yes to anything. You may climb the ladder of success, but when you get to the top you will discover the ladder is leaning against the wrong wall!
What Vision Does for you...
Vision will help you see what you could not see, hear what you could not hear, do things you normally wouldn’t do, hear things you normally wouldn’t hear; With vision you can climb any mountain, overcome any obstacle and endure any hardship. Vision carries you with strength that you did not know you possessed. It is vision that is the fruit of when you find yourself possessed by a promise
