Vision Is God-given
“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
A vision is a revelation of God’s perspective of your future. A vision is God’s prescription of who you are based on your potential irrespective of your circumstances.
Now that we have seen several definitions of vision, I will like us to begin to examine from today the character of a God-given vision.
The first character of a God-given vision is that it is God-given. Vision is not man made. It is God-given. There is a difference between a vision and a dream. A dream is something you desire to be, do or have. A dream for the most part is personal and could also be selfish. A vision on the other hand is God given. That is why we defined vision as a revelation of God’s redemptive plan and your role in it.
You do not create a vision, you discover a vision. It is revelational insight into God’s plan and purpose for your life, family, organization, nation, etc. In many nations, they have no clue on what their purpose is. God has a vision for nations and until a nation understands her purpose for existence, there will be confusion there.
A God-given vision is a divine initiative. It is a revelation of your God-given assignment. It is not something you create by yourself, it is revealed to you by God.
Please read Genesis 12:3, 2 Samuel 7:29 and ask God to bless you and your family.
For further study, read:
Acts 26:16-19, Galatians 1:11-12, Ephesians 1:9-12.
Doing the Word
Give the Lord thanks for revealing His vision for your life to you.
