Different kind of excuses has stopped many people from accessing the plan of God for their lives (Isaiah 39: 11-12), and this plan is packaged in the holy bible.
What then is Vision?
Vision is simply the insight of God’s purpose for a person, a people, a church, a nation. God has a plan for everyone, for every church, for every nation, and the purpose is embedded in scripture (Jeremiah 1:5).
Before your were born, God already had a plan for you, just as no product determine what it can do but the manufacturer has the purpose of such product before manufacturing.
Every child of God has a purpose here on earth, there is a specific function and it’s important to understand what your function is.
The bible speaking in Romans 8:28, you become a man of impact when you walk in God’s purpose for your life and destiny. Following God’s plan for your live is not only unveil in the word but also in vision (Psalm 119:105).
Encounters with God is also called vision (Habakkuk 2: 1-3; Exodus 3: 1-4). The book of Acts chapter 9: 1-6, tell us about the encounter of Apostle Paul with God which is a typical example of vision.
It is very important for you to understand the purpose of God for you, the time and the place He want you to do it.
Why do we need vision?
1. Vision bring reason and meaning to living (Proverbs 29:18). Life become meaningful with vision and raises the quality of a Man’s life.
2. It brings focus to life pursuit. If you know where you going to, you become focus. So many people are distracted because they lack vision and lack purpose (Philippians 3: 13-14).
Vision brings bearing to life and makes your life facing at a particular direction per time.
3. It terminates errors and avoid mistake. No one knows tomorrow like God who created today and tomorrow (Isaiah 46:10). It’s so important for you to see ahead where God is showing you and taking you to.
How do You access God’s vision for your life:
1. Be born again (John 3: 4-7). Until you become, you cannot see. If you are not His child you cannot access what He has for you.
2. You have to desire (Revelation 1:9-10). Untill you see that vision and purpose is important in your life, you may not go for it.
3. Engage in the altar of payers to get access (Jeremiah 33:3). You must go to Him in prayers to know your purpose on earth.
Proofs if true vision is what you have:
1. Every true vision drives the visioneer (Mark 1:12). Vision brings drive and momentum to life of a man with the vision.
2. Every true vision lay all fear (Acts 27: 21-25). You can’t hear the voice of God and be afraid of men.
3. Every true vision build confidence (Philippians 1:21; Acts 26:19). Those who see the invisible, believe the incredible, and begin to command the impossible.
Nothing preservers like vision. Joseph was indestructible because of his vision which was a driving and a propelling force.
