Do you want everything God has for you? Then you need a vision!
Vision is the key to everything there is in God. It is the key to seeing all your dreams and prophecies come to pass. The prophet Habakkuk reminds us to:
“Write the vision down, and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is for an appointed time, but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come and it will not tarry” (Habakkuk 2:1-2).
Vision is important! It will do huge things for you.
Here are three reasons you MUST have a vision:
1. Vision propels you into your future.
When you use your faith and combine vision with the Word, it will really surprise you how God will propel you into your future like a rocket. Vision is the key to everything.
My husband released a prophetic word recently about the “catapult”–how God is going to catapult you forward. But you know what God needs in order to catapult you? He needs you to have a vision. Notice in Habakkuk that the “running” doesn’t start until after the “reading.” You have to have a vision in order to receive the future God has for you!
2. Vision keeps you going when you want to stop.
If you do what the prophet Habakkuk prescribed and “write the vision down,” it will be so exciting to see God begin to move line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little. Little by little He will move, but you WILL see Him do it!
While you wait, your vision will give you hope. It will help you keep moving in faith, believing God no matter what it looks like or feels like. Many times in going after my purpose I had to keep the faith like that! I couldn’t look at things in the natural. I only saw in the supernatural, and that supernatural vision of God’s plan for my life kept me going.
When there were no calls for bookings–or when we were barely getting by–I kept my eyes on the vision of going to the nations until I was experiencing it first-hand. PRAISE GOD HE ANSWERS PRAYERS! And what He has done for me, He will do for you too! Won’t He do it? Oh yes, He will!
3. Vision keeps you disciplined.
My vision keeps me disciplined and focused, and yours will keep you disciplined and focused too. David said in Psalm 27:13-14:
“I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord” (Psalm 27:13-14).
There is really no other discipline like waiting–especially waiting on the Lord. Because His timing is not our timing and our timing is not His timing, waiting can be hard. But, if you will make up your mind and stay in faith–waiting on God in faith and expectation–you will see your vision come into sight.
My friend, keep the vision you received from God ever before you! Watch and wait!
Stay rooted and grounded in God. If you will, your vision will surely come to pass; it will not delay!
Do you need a vision? If so, get alone with God TODAY and ask Him to show you His vision for your life! When He does, receive it–even if it seems impossible! Nothing is too hard for God.
