Ask God for a Vision

Post by Evangelista_GP on Wed Jul 13, 2016 1:41 pm


Ask God for a Vision
‘Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.’
Hebrews 12:2

A vision is a picture of what ‘can be’ rather than ‘what is’. Your vision may be to bring help to the marginalised and forgotten. Like John Kirkby, who left his job in finance when he felt God call him to help the poor and found Christians Against Poverty. Or of honest business that doesn't oppress its workers - like the Christian founders of Cadbury, Rowntree, and Fry in the confectionary industry. It may be a vision of freedom where there’s oppression - like the one that made William Wilberforce give up a life of privilege to eradicate slavery. Or your vision may be smaller and simpler - like being the first one in your family to graduate from university, or becoming a great parent to your child even though you yourself never had one. Or breaking a bad habit before it breaks you…or overcoming your fear of technology and learning to use an iPad…or spending your retirement years impacting the world around you. Thoreau said, ‘If you’ve built castles in the air…put foundations under them.’ But having a vision isn’t enough; there has to be a commitment to act on it. That’s called a mission - and it requires setting specific, measurable steps to achieve it. Those steps are called goals; they establish a plan for accomplishing your mission and thus fulfilling your vision. You’ll generally have one vision, but many goals. And each goal you reach brings you a step closer to fulfilling your vision. And here’s the really good news: when your vision comes from God, He’ll give you the strength, wisdom, connections, relationships, and resources to make it happen because He’s ‘the author and finisher of our faith’.

Ezra 9-10, Rom 6

Don't underestimate the power of a vision. McDonald's founder, Ray Kroc, pictured his empire long before it existed, and he saw how to get there. He invented the company motto — 'Quality, service, cleanliness and value' — and kept repeating it to employees for the rest of hislife."

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."— T.E. LawrenceSeven Pillars of Wisdom

Vision,that's the foundation behind every success. I almost lost mine in the hands of bad friends, then in college.I smoked,chased women around, and forgot I had a purpose in life. But thanks to God,who restored my vision and gave me a new life.

Almost same thing, My life was almost shut down, but thank God for the new people he's brought into my life, Ozoemena especially. Thank God for his restoration of my life, giving me a hope, and a reason to stand.

“Some believe there is nothing one man orone woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills -- against misery, against ignorance, or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New World, and 32 year old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. ‘Give me a place to stand,’ said Archimedes, ‘and I will move the world.’ These men moved the world, and so can we all.”— Robert F. Kennedy
