Vision is the reason for man’s success; clear and concise and focused vision. To be able to see the beginning and the end of a matter is one of the most important aspects of success. Even if the plan has to be amended to accommodate the vision -that’s perfectly acceptable.
If the vision is clear then the result is more important than how we get there, as long as we have not sinned along the way to get there. The journey is the learning process that brings us to the fulfillment of the vision. Mistakes are not only allowed, they are actually one of the best tools we have in our life’s tool box.
Like all the great men of God who made mistakes along the way, it seems like the ones who succeed were the men who were able to keep their eyes on the vision. This is what made Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joshua, David, Solomon, Gideon, Daniel, and Isaiah successful. They weren’t perfect, they were visionaries. They caught the vision that God had for them and lit their face like a flint and didn’t turn back. They stumbled along the way but each time they got back up brushed off the dust and kept on going.
Isa 50:7 For the Lord GOD helps Me, Therefore, I am not disgraced; Therefore, I have set My face like flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.
In Hebrew the word for vision is: châzôn
a sight (mentally), that is, a dream, revelation, or oracle: - vision.
The great men of God never lost vision. Even though they did not receive they did not loose vision.
Heb 11:39 And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised,
This is our goal; this is what we are called to. We should not loose vision. Our vision is specific and generic simultaneously. We have a collective vision and each and every one of us has our own individual vision. We must be persuaded that our vision is from God and not just something we have concocted on our own. If our vision is not His then we are spinning our wheels and wasting the only time that has been appointed to us. By knowing His word we can always verify if our vision is on target or not.
Pro 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people (perish): but he that keepeth the law (instruction), happy is he.
The Hebrew for perish is, (paw-rah') it means:
to expose, dismiss; figuratively absolve, avoid, bare, go back, let, (make) naked, set at nought, perish, refuse, uncover.
Today we must seek his face and receive all that He has for us. We must make His vision our vision. This will keep us going till the end. This will keep us focused and on track. No vision no purpose. No purpose we perish
Pro 13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But desire fulfilled is a tree of life.
Let’s keep our hope and desire on the lover of our souls. Then we will have clear vision till the end.
