Don’t Let Your Vision Interfere with God’s Vision
“For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
What is vision? Vision is defined as an act or power of sensing with the eyes or sight. It acts as one of the daily confirmations of the physical realm. In a corporate setting vision takes on a bolder definition acting as a vivid, imaginary or anticipative conception in “Vision Statements”. However, it is my belief visionmust be based on this definition, “the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be.” This creates a path that will require you to use less of your physical vision but will cause you to lean on your spiritual vision. This has also been referred to as prophetic vision. It is better represented by this verse, John 16:7 NLT, “But in fact, it is best for you that I go away, because if I don’t, the ADOVOCATE won’t come. If I do go away, then I will send him to you.”
The question we must ask ourselves is, “Do I have a vision? Are we able to step back and take on the guard of our God?” Our number one job to make sure this is taking place is to become one with God through Jesus The Christ. This happens by fasting, praying, meditation, sacrifice and obedience. I declare, I decree that you can tap into the power of God’s vision for your life with the help of the Holy Spirit! Make these things your foundation, stand on them and do not waver! The power will begin to touch you and God will reveal dreams and visions greater than you can imagine.
Proverbs 29:18 states, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” If you do not have a vision for your life, where will you be? Ask yourself, “Will I perish?” In the year 2020, we have a fresh start to renew our foundation with our God and get a new vision. Don’t let hate hold you back, but learn to hate evil things because this will grow you in the Lord. Give your life to God and watch things turnaround for the good! Be loving, kind, grateful, speak well of your brother or sister, give good judgment, and watch how your power of vision grows. NOW, CAN YOU SEE CLEARLY?
