Your vision is the true reflection of what you are capable of doing, not your circumstance or situation. Let me define a vision from God for you: “A vision is the clear picture of the end product.” One of the reasons why people don’t have a vision is because there are too much of doubts and fear in their lives. The day you catch a true vision from God, you know that your end is secured. A real vision comes with powerful insights inside your spirit with some definite strength and faith. If God shows you what he wants you to be, nothing can stop you being that except you. Everything you desired to be, men and the devil can stop you because it is you that desire it, but what God says is His thought for you, nothing can stop that.

The importance of understanding the vision of God for the life of a man is so serious that it was a major prayer that Paul the apostle prayed for the Ephesians Church and we must also pray for it as well. Instead of driving your life on the engine of ambition, get a correct clear vision from the Lord. Know this today and do not forget it: when we came individually to this world, God had a thought for us, a vision and a dream for each life (Jeremiah 1:5). Before God formed you, he knew you and He ordained you to be something and when you discover your vision, you will know what you are ordained to be. Whatsoever God has ordained you to be, the devil cannot stop you from becoming it. 

In Genesis 37:5, Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told his brethren: and they hated him yet the more. That dream which was the expression of the vision of God for his life was the beginning of his journey to the top. Up till the day you dream God's dream for your life, you are one of the many faces in the crowd of humanity but the day you dream the dream of God, the vision for your life, your journey to the top begins. Until you have that vision, you are simply warming up in life, you are not ready for your race.

Your vision is a divine communication. A true vision is from God; a redemptive revelation. That is what will redeem your life from all the wastages that has taken place. It doesn’t matter how much of your life has been wasted; if you catch the vision at fifty four, it will redeem your life. It will cause you to accelerate and shift forward in life. That is why you see people that caught the vision of God for their lives early in life speaking with the colleagues of their father because vision accelerates life.

 

The moment your vision in life is wrong, your destination in life will definitely be wrong. Before you set out in life, see to it that you get your vision right in life and your journey will be faster than you expected in Jesus name.

Prayer: Father, I receive grace today not to live my life on the basis of assumption but to understand and follow the vision you have for my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
