THE POWER OF VISION

Scripture Reading: Proverbs 29:17-27

Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law. – Proverbs 29:18

Vision refers to “the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.” A vision guides you and inspires your decisions.

 

Proverbs says without a vision people cast off restraint. That means they live anyhow. A restraint is like the boundaries of a drain. It holds things from overflowing.

 

Visionless people are unrestrained and often dissipate their time, money, energy and resources on frivolous things. Without a focus on a desirable end, our activities become meaningless.

 

Three masons were asked the same question with varying responses. The first said, “I am laying bricks.” The second said, “I am building a wall.“ The third had the most visionary perspective, “I am building a cathedral for God’s glory.”

What Does A Vision Do?

1. Contradicts my current reality:A vision paints a picture of a brighter future that is often superior to your current situation.

2. Confronts our sense of comfort: A vision challenges the status quo and pushes us to make important changes to our time, finances and other choices. You can’t have a big vision and continue living anyhow.

 

3. Conceives new opportunities: A vision helps us to find ways around the most difficult challenges that confront us.

 

4. Connects us to resources: A compelling vision attracts the needed resources for its accomplishment.

 

5. Concentrates our energy and focuses it on the most important things: A vision does not allow us to dissipate our anger and passion on unimportant exertions and distractions.

 

Prayer:

Father, inspire in my heart a compelling vision and grant me the fortitude to accomplish it.
