Many people are living life without a vision. They’ve got nothing written down, and no plan.
If you don’t have a plan, then you are open for suggestion. If you don’t fill that place where suggestion can talk, then someone is going to fill that place up for you with suggestions.
Habakkuk 2: 2 – 3
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.
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfilment]; 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.
Notice the keys:
- Make the vision plain
- Make the vision visible
- People should be able to see it as they walk past it.
- There is an appointed time
The vision should come through the eyes of God/ Word of God.
For example – When choosing a spouse, they need to look like God wants it to look. If you don’t look through God’s eyes, you’re going to have the wrong vision.
Have the Kingdom of God first, and His Righteousness (His way of doing things).
Then the rest of the things will be added unto you. (Matthew 6: 33)
Whatever your vision is, it should include the Kingdom of God. So, if you’re vision is to make money, it should be for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
God must be the centre of your vision.
Otherwise, you’ll find yourself trying to build it all on your own.
Our motives must be checked. Why do we want this vision?
God has a predestined plan for all of us, that was written before He laid the foundation of this world. It is important that this plan God has for us, should be the only one that we want.
I want that plan for my life, because I know all my fulfilment and joy, in what I am doing, is in that plan.
Dreams, visions, and prophecies bring the vision of God for your life.
If you’re not sure what the vision is, you’ll have to knock until it opens up. Until you know what that vision is.
But you’ll have to get a clear vision that is written down and clear to see.
Get a name for your vision. For example: We are building an auditorium with 6000 seats. But it’s not simply a church. It’s a “Healing centre” where we’ll be focusing on inner healing and deliverance.
It was important to God, that we name it correctly for what it really is. So, after walking with God and trying to get a clear name for this vision, the Lord finally helped me by saying “Jaco, it’s a healing centre that you are building.”
It’s very important to know EXACTLY what you are doing. So that you don’t miss anything.
