The Vision God Gave You


The Vision God Gave You

When you look at what’s going on in the world today, there’s a lot to see that’s going wrong. Many people are concerned about the economy, finances, jobs, and how it’s going to affect them and their families.

But there’s another problem if all they can see is what’s going wrong. And if their primary focus is on fear and scarcity.    

You may be experiencing genuine heartbreaking problems and I’m not trying to diminish them. However, if you look at your circumstances through your physical eyes, it’s easy to join the crowd in negative thinking. Instead, try seeing your circumstances through your spiritual eyes.

This is a great time to look beyond now. God spoke a word over your life before you were even born. That’s where vision comes in.                                                                            

The best example of someone who endured terrible circumstances but never lost sight of His vision is Jesus.

God in the flesh left heaven to endure an excruciating death after being talked about, challenged, abandoned, denied, betrayed, and every other possible thing that you can think of. Yet He was still able to say that He finished the work that God gave Him to do. (John 17:4) He never lost sight of the vision; His reason for being on earth.                                                                  

What can you learn from Jesus’ life?

Accept the fact that although things may be hard for you right now, you can get through it. Refuse to focus on what you see. As a child of God, you walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7) 

Habakkuk 2:2-4 is a reminder to not give up on the vision God gave you for your life.

Take your focus off what’s happening around you and place it on what’s yet to come. If God spoke it, it will come to pass. His Word always accomplishes what He said. (Isaiah 55:11) Remember, you walk by faith and not by sight.

Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet 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, it will not tarry.” -Habakkuk 2:2-4 (NKJV)
