Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he (Proverbs 29:18)
The journey to the top in anything begins with a vision. To build a house, to become married, to become a graduate, to get to the top in your career, it must begin with a vision. To get to the top in any aspect of your life, you must begin with a clear vision.
“Perish” in the passage above does not necessarily mean dying but wastage. Where there is no vision, there is wastage. As a young lady, if a man comes to you that he wants to marry you, test him by the vision he has for your life because if the man does not have a clear vision for life, he will waste your life. If you as a young lady marry a man without vision, you will perish, your education will perish, your background will perish, the investment of your parents will perish, and the investment of your pastor will perish. Everything will perish where there is no vision.
If you go to work for an employer that has no vision, you will perish there. That is why you have seen people growing old without going anywhere. They grow old, white hair on their head on the same spot and you see regret in their eyes. They were people with no vision. Many times, when people say “I encountered God” and yet there are no fruits in their lives, they didn’t encounter God, rather they encountered men. The outstanding manifestation of encounters of God to a man is that He communicates His vision for your life to you.
When you go to Church, what you receive is vision, not banking, science or engineering. You come to Church to get God's vision for your life. You come to Church to get the Spirit and the Word of God. Vision is one of the major things you come to Church to get. After you have stayed in a particular Church for some time, ask yourself, do I see life clearer? Is there a sureness in my spirit about where am headed in life? The first thing to note on the journey to the top is that it begins with a vision. Show me your vision and I will prophesy your future to you. I pray for you that you will encounter the vision of God for your life in Jesus’ name.
Prayer: Father, grant me a divine revelation of the vision you have for my life and future in Jesus’ name. Amen.
