The Word- Vision.

Good Monday Morning!
How are you and yours? I hope your days have been splendid?

Happy happy happy new month guys.

God is never late, and He will give you fulfillment even in the remaining months of this year. In church yesterday, the guest Minister reminded us that waking up in the morning is a miracle! I know people wait on ‘miraculous acts’, like when God turned water to wine(and that’s not bad in itself); but what about your everyday miracles?
We know these things, but because faith comes by hearing & hearing by the word of God, then we must remember that life in itself is a miracle. Hold on to God and find fulfillment in Him! Amen? Amen!
Ok people! Let’s go into what God has prepared as the word for this week. Vision.

I know, I know! You must be tired of seeing this word by now. Everyone talks about vision too much abi?

Maybe it’s because it is so essential to our purpose in life, the reason we were created! If you’d like to hear about purpose, then vision is important! You also know that I always start with myself. If I point a finger at you, then the other four fingers face me.

 
Everyday, God opens my heart to the reason I was created. Everyday, I grow in my purpose. (You see, God does show us the end, but the way to that end is gradually revealed.) That’s why I said(wrote) that I grow in purpose.
So, God has placed a mission in my hands again. (More like, my partner and I’s hands. Partner being my roomie). Somehow yesterday, I was having internal conflicts. Sometimes I act like Gideon who keeps asking God questions. I said, “God, are you sure this is what you want me to do? Are you sure you want me to have a partner? You know I have been in a partnership before and it didn’t end well. Will this work out as planned?”
I was asking a whole lot of jamb questions. However, my sweet daddy still answered me this morning and I’m glad to share!

 
First of all, your vision is way more than you!
Yes, let’s start from there. If God has shown you something or placed something in your heart to do and that vision centers on you and you alone, then check your motives. God does not give self-centered visions.
In ‘The Power of Vision’ by Myles Munroe which I’m currently reading he says “No great work was ever done alone!” Ain’t that the truth!

 
It’s like how the ‘Feed the Homeless’ project was my vision, but God intertwined other people’s vision into it.
We’re having another project on breast cancer this month, but we’ve got a team. It’s our vision, but we’re allowing everyone to work with their vision as well. My friend who likes to talk and put together programs has been put in charge of that. My other diligent friend who likes to write has been put in charge of proposals. This goes for everyone else on the team.

 
What I’m saying in essence is this, everyone has their individual purpose and God given vision. However, God has designed us all to individually work with our visions, while also corporately accomplishing God given visions.
Myles Munroe says “Vision means to see something coming into view as if it were already there.”
Your purpose and vision should align! You can’t envision yourself as a different thing from the purpose for which you were created.

 
Perhaps, you think you weren’t created for a purpose and with a vision in mind. I’d like to ask you, what are your greatest desires? What are those dreams and thoughts that just wouldn’t let you be? Where do you see yourself? What does your heart desire most?

 
Please, note that all these questions are being asked with God in mind. Anything self gratifying and selfish should not be one’s vision. Whatever you see yourself being/doing ought to be nothing outside of God.
Why not take a moment to deeply think about what gives you great joy when you’re at it! Like me, writing is something I’d feel lost without. However, when God placed this blog in my hands, it still really wasn’t about me! I’m so blessed when I see a comment on how a post helped/touched someone.

Yeah, God gave me the vision but the bigger picture was more than me.
Spend time with God and let Him show you great and mighty things you never knew existed within you!
Ephesians 2:10
We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Beautiful, what are you still waiting for? God has prepared works in advance(before before you were born o) for you to do. Biko, let that God-given vision move!


 

That’s it for today everyone!
Please, don’t be stingy o. Be nice enough to share this post with as many friends as possible. If you missed last week’s word, you can read it here. Purpose and Vision are 5 & 6; closely related, though different.
Have a fantastic week ahead and do endeavor to subscribe so you don’t miss any post!

  1. Thanks so much for this. One thing that really caught my attention is that vision cannot be achieved alone. My worry is getting the right people to help carry out my vision. I think its a sensitive thing so I want to be very careful with whom I share a vision and team up with to accomplish it. Any help?

    1. Yes dear, it is very sensitive to share one’s vision with others. One must be very careful and prayerful. There are people who steal one’s ideas too. However, once you’re sure you have trustworthy people around, then you can go ahead to share your thoughts with them. Ask them for help and let them be part of the dream, that way they’d work efficiently like the dream was theirs. Truth is we can’t do it alone sometimes, but getting the right people is key. God directs us to these people, because we can’t choose right on our own. Thanks for stopping by dear. Have a fantastic day.

  2. I agree with you on this. If you recieve a vision, next on your mind is what’s the purpose of the vision. Like Paul the apostle, he was conscious of the purpose of the vision as stated in Acts 26vs18. When you discover that, it will be easy to focus on it without thinking of self.

    Have a nice week!

    1. Very true! Once the purpose and vision are aligned right, then self-contentedness is eliminated. This is why checking one’s motives periodically is very important. Paul was a man who knew very strongly his purpose and did not allow anything get in the way of his vision. He’s a great example for this topic(and many more). Thanks Chukwuma! God bless you.
