PERFORMANCE OF THE VISION – PART 3
WHAT, WHERE, WHY, HOW, WHEN.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
A map helps you know how to get to your destination, which direction you are to travel, how far along you have been travelling and the distance you still have to cover to reach your destination. The Word of God is our map to get us from where we are to God’s desired place for us. A lot of people have dreams, goals and aspirations but many never see the light of day because they have no blue print leading them. Our mental state must always align with the Word of God to give direction as to how we live, our conduct, attitude and the character required to ensure we not only see the Promised Land but enter it.
People often ask; how do I stay focused and not miss my path? The bible says the Word of God is a lamp unto our feet and a lamp to our path.
Ecclesiastes 1:11a – He has made everything beautiful in its time.
There is a time for everything, a time to plant and a time to harvest what has been planted. As long as your vision is God initiated, there will be a fulfilment in its time. The vision is always for an appointed time and God has told us in Habakkuk 2:3 to wait for it. The picture of our desired future has been birth forth within us, and it’s only a matter of time before it manifests. The fulfilment sometimes is in phases but we must not be discouraged and wait as it unfolds.
Psalm 126:1 “When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream.”
It is not a question of if but of when. God tells us our time will eventually come. When your vision is realized in the corporate vision, it will be so compelling and it would be all you have ever imagined and more. God showed Jeremiah a picture of a great prophetic ministry when he was only a child, Jeremiah had an insight, believed it and it was performed.
How do you achieve the vision?
Start from where you are, Use what you have and you will do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
