Where there is no vision [no revelation of God and His word], the people are unrestrained; Proverbs 29:18a
I would just like to make an observation this morning, perhaps get you to think on it, share your thoughts if you wish.
Dictionary.com speaks of vision as; a vivid, imaginative conception or anticipation: the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be. Vision can also be something we actually see, but this particular vision is seen with the heart or imagination.
I mentioned the other day how prophesy is God’s way of getting us to see us in the future. God created us with a strong sense of vision so that we would use it to pull into the now, what has not happened yet. Make sense? Visions can be something we actually see, but it can be something we see ourselves as, or perhaps see ourselves doing.
If we settle for the way we are, as the way we will always be, we will also settle for unproductive, hum-drum lives. But if we are always anticipating the promises of God, speaking about them, pulling those future things into the present, our physical bodies will respond.
Healing is a prime example; you may be sick in your body, but when you see yourself healed and whole, continue to speak the unchanging word of God, it must respond. I know, I’ve experienced it myself as have many others. Don’t allow your current situation keep you where God wants to take you.
Vision is a powerful thing, without it we’re blind both physically and spiritually. Where there is no revelation of God and His word, there is no restraint. If you see yourself differently than you actually are right now, you have vision. If you can’t see it inside, it will never manifest outside.
Father, increase my vision, my ability to see as you do. To believe that what I say WILL come to pass just as you do. I want to be like you in every way. I want to love like you, give like you, rule and reign like you want me to. Thank you for giving me your Holy Spirit which leads me into all truth. Who shows me what my future holds and who holds my future. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
