VISION ENHANCERS – Part 4
Ecclesiastes 8:1 – Who is like the wise man? Who knows the explanation of things? Wisdom brightens a man’s face and changes its hard appearance.
Knowing the vision of God for your life is important but having the details of how to achieve the vision is equally very important. This process of how to achieve God’s vision for your life is wisdom. It is knowledge acted upon that brings results. Wisdom is the feet on which knowledge walks. When you know how to achieve your vision you have the key to your success. The bible tells us to ask for wisdom from God and he will give it to us. So ask for wisdom from God.
But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Every vision has its time and season. There is a season of insignificance and there is a season of significance. There are days of little things and there a days of big things. Your ability to navigate the days of little things through to the days of big things is called patience. Staying the course with view of the desired future is productive patience. There is no vision that can be instantly fulfilled. The vision of Jesus to save the world did not happen overnight, it took 30 years to gain significance and another 3 years to fulfil the vision. The most important project after creation took 33yeears to fulfil not including the thousands of years of prophesies. So keep your vision in view and patiently work at it until it all comes to fruition. Note: patience is not folding your hands doing nothing and expecting something to happen. Patience is working towards your vision at full speed and expecting your vision to eventually be fulfilled.
