When there is no vision the people perish. If you have no vision, you likely may not succeed. Vision is the ability to see beyond the physical. If you can’t see anything, you can’t say or declare anything. If you don’t have vision for yourself and where you are headed to, you can’t make it. As in the case of Abraham, God told him “as far as your eyes can see, I will give to you.” This means that your mind is very important for what you see. If you continue to see yourself as poor, that is how you would be; for as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
There are some people who cry in advance or in arrears for a need, this is because they are short-sighted and are not seeing anything. Vision, is the ability to see where you are headed to. And you need to know that as long as God is still on the throne, it will get better. Any child of God who doesn’t see positively, does not have the mind of Christ. There are some other people who also do not believe in the heart, even when they are being prophesied to.
It is actually an error not to see anything. This is to let you know that your location and background does not matter, however, it matters what you see. And God acts upon what you see to work it out for you. Therefore, it is pertinent that you begin to look like what you are seeing and where you are headed to. This means that you would need to eat well and healthy. You would need to also dress well to attract the future you aspire; like begets like.
For someone who is into a business and expecting to expand it into a bigger venture, you have to manage and keep account of the little beginning, in anticipation and preparation for the big. As someone who desires to grow a small business into a big one, do not spend extravagantly. A job seeker does not sit at the confines of his/her home and expect a job to come on its own.
There are long, short and mid term visions. For you to fulfill your vision effectively, you need to set goals. Here are some steps to follow:
- You have to cut down on your expenses.
- Mind your association.
- Make up your mind to save some percentage of your money/income.
For every success and progress in life, there is a price to pay, whether big or small. There is no success that comes in life without a price tag.
While you pursue your personal vision, it is important to also make up your mind to have a kingdom vision and also plan to fulfill it. Here are some practical ways to fulfill your kingdom vision.
- Write and make your vision plain on a paper.
- Join a department in the kingdom service: when you work for God, you will discover it will be easy to fulfill your personal vision.
- Do not postpone what the spirit of God tells you.
- Start and take action. Set little goals to kickstart the vision.
- Keep re-visiting the vision written down. It will keep you abreast on how far you have gone.
- Exercise your faith.
- Pray without ceasing.
- Have patience as a virtue. Every good success takes time to be actualized.
To effectively fulfill your personal vision and kingdom vision, you would need to be spiritually minded and godly. There are many people who live a carefree lifestyle. There is so much work to do in the kingdom and the time is short; that’s why there’s no need to waste time.
Don’t leave this world, without making an impact.
