Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained, but happy is he who keeps the law. Proverbs 29:18 (NASB)
Vision is defined as something seen or otherwise perceived. It is the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be; a prophetic vision. Vision is the missing ingredient from many of our lives today. Many of us are living life carelessly, without aim or proper guidance. We cast off all restraints and run wild because we have no vision for our future.
This state of mind is an enemy to a life of discipline. When we have no clue about what is before us, we are prone to falter along the way. Vision helps to create a proper playing field for us along the course of our journey. It helps to set up restraints to keep us in bound when it comes to reaching our goals. A person with vision has an understanding that everything is not profitable when it comes to staying on task. There are no cutting corners involved; only following the blue print that is outlined will get you to your desired end.
God instructed Habakkuk to write the vision and make it plain. So others may see it and run with it. (Habakkuk 2:2). Have you taken the time to pursue God about the vision for your life? Remember, He has every day of our lives recorded in His book. He knows the thoughts and the plans that He has for us. Those thoughts are to give us a future and a hope. He already established our expected end, before we were even a thought.
Run to Him today and seek out His plans for your life. Now is not the time to make haphazard decisions about your future. Be a visionary. Begin to focus on the vision God has already created for your life. It is then that you will be able to gather the proper instructions, the guidance and the grace to move forward and accomplish your goals.
Father, you created each of us with a built in purpose and design. Forgive us for not coming to you daily to seek out the blueprint for our lives. Today, we ask that you impart within us all the vision that you have for our lives. Allow us a glimpse of your intended purpose for our lives. As you do, I pray that we will begin to run with the vision You have provided and forsake what we have created for ourselves. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
