Vision shapes our future

Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.


What is a vision? It is a picture you have in your mind or in your heart of something that is going to happen in the future. Vision is not something is happening right now, or something happened in the past, but a vision is a future moment.


Do you have a vision for yourself, for your life, for your family, for your kids, for your city, for your country…?


If you are confident in who you are, then it is not a problem to see. You are looking forward to that future moment with expectation.  But if your emotions are traumatised, then your visions can never be attained, because you are living and thinking of the trauma of the past.


Why can't we operate in what God has the best for us? Because we do not see how God sees us and why He has made us. If you ever don’t like yourself, curse yourself, you are shutting off the vision of manifesting God’s best for your life.


The Bible says that you are fearfully and wonderfully made and God has a plan for you. He wants you to see His plan and succeed, not just roll over into another year and then giving up at the end. Vision is when God is revealing Himself to you. You see it, you write it down and expect it to happen. 


There are some practical things to do. Take a pen and write down the things which are holding you back: a trauma, fears, a broken relationship, addiction, anger, unforgiveness. Whatever it is, write them down.


When you look at the list, remind yourself Jesus carried your pains, traumas, fears, anxieties, your disfigurements. All the things which are wrong with you are dealt with on the Cross. Because of Jesus all your past, present or future mistakes were forgiven and through Jesus bruises, you were healed. (Isaiah 53:5-6). You do not need to carry those things. They had been carried by Jesus.  It is a finished work of the Cross. What needs to change inside of you is the trauma that is robbing your joy of life. 


Now, take another paper and write down what you want to see in the future and how it will impact your life and lives of your family and friends. Write down the vision and make it plain, God told to Habakkuk. (Habakkuk 2:2) 


Write down what you see and wait for it. Do not be discouraged. Keep 'the vision list' as a reminder. There will come a moment when time catches up with what you have seen in another time frame. You see into the future, and all of a sudden time catches up. It is not about feeling, it is about acting upon the word. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently. It will take place in God's timing and will not be delayed. 


Habakkuk 2:3

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end, it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
