Without prophetic vision people run wild, but blessed are those who follow ⌞God’s⌟ teachings. Proverbs 29:18 GW
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.
Did you know that prophesy is God’s way of getting us to fixate our gaze on the future? God created us with a strong sense of vision so that we would use it to pull what is not yet seen into our now. The things He spoke is merely what has not happened yet in the physical realm. Make sense? Visions can be something we actually see, but it can also be something we see ourselves as, or perhaps see ourselves doing.
If we settle for the way we currently are for 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, and you continue to speak the unchanging word of God, what currently is must respond. I know, I’ve experienced it myself as have many others. Don’t allow your current situation to determine your fate or keep you from where God wants to take you. He wants you to be in a state of wholeness-nothing missing or broken.
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.
