Proverbs 29:18 declares:
It therefore follows that a man or woman
who lacks a vision will not succeed in life. Every
Literally, vision is synonymous with sight. And sight is essential to progress. That is why “…if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” (Matthew 15:14). If you cannot see it you cannot have it. You can only walk into what you can see.
Without a vision, a man is bound to grope in the dark. A man without a vision for life will grope in the dark for life! That is not the will of God.
When God gives you a vision, it leads you on a definite course with a definite destination. Every detail may not be known all at once, but there is a definite course of direction. It is always tied to your calling and destiny. God does not lead in circles. The Israelites were led in circles because of disobedience. A journey of 2 weeks took 40 years!
How does one obtain a vision for life?
1. Intelligent inquiry:
Habakkuk 2:1-3 declare:
“And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
“For the vision is yet for an appointed
time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie….”
2. Insight (God idea): Insight is the precursor
for foresight. Every form of foresight begins with insight.
So when you obtain God ideas they produce pictures of the future.
This picture creates an expectation of a desired end.
Grab a hold of God’s vision for your life
and watch how life becomes a thrill!
