Vision; the act or power of sensing with the eyes; sight, the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be: prophetic vision; the vision of an entrepreneur.
One of my favorite verses is found in Habakkuk 2:2-3 AMP goes like this, “And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.”
This shows how important it is to meditate on the words God has given to us. I believe that without vision, something inside of us dies and we never see the promises of God become a reality. Look at the Israelites, those with no vision never reached the promised land.
I have had God show me things to come that have not yet happened, but I believe they will. I’ve heard Him speak things in my spirit which were difficult to believe but remembered His word, “All things are possible to him who believes.”
I don’t ever want to be the one who doesn’t receive just because it looks too big or sounds too crazy. I just scream out, “Lord I believe, help my unbelief!” I fight off the doubts with my words. I just get more radical because I believe you must have radical, ridiculous faith to obtain and see the manifestation of the promises of God.
You say, seeing is believing. I say believing is seeing. Don’t ever measure someone by what you see on the outside. They may look insignificant, plain and simple to you, but the inner person measures mighty in faith to God. You say, how’s that possible? Listen to what they say, that is the measure of a man.
Father, may I measure up to Your expectations of me. Not by what I do, but by what Christ did for me. Your grace is sufficient because it’s perfected in my weakness. Oh to rely on You to complete the work You started in me. It’s in Jesus’ name and for Your glory, Amen.
