Visionless Hope: You Become What You Behold! (Pt. 2)

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Scriptures:  2 Corinthians 3:18 (NASB), 1 John 5:14-15 (NLT), Zechariah 4:10 (NLT), Habakkuk 2:2-3 (NLT) and Ecclesiastes 7:8

How often do you sit and daydream or visualize your hopes, dreams and ambitions in life, only for them to become fleeting manifestations in your mind?  Perhaps it is because what you see are only glimpses and not constant consistent visuals of what can be. 

In today’s modern society, too often what appears real is often infatuation; someone else’s illusion of what you can become.  The Law of Vision clearly shows the principle of beholding as envisioning before having something.  Too often, however, we waste valuable time – speaking in the hearing of fools, who do not hunger for our thoughts. 

You see, when our current condition no longer dictates visionless hope, and we fervently and unapologetically behold; cling to the transformative visual manifestation of becoming what we have been beholding then divine uniqueness is birthed.

In other words, without a clear vision the next level will appear unattainable. The visionary’s vision should always be visible enough to be read at a glance.” Why? Because our minds think in pictures, not words. A vision’s divine origin stems from having intimate dialogue with God about his will for our lives; not ours. Vision is God’s loving hand infusing intricate details about areas of our lives which require more attention. We should delight ourselves in keeping God’s vision in sight. In retrospect, does what we behold ignite hope in us or does our allowing others to extinguish it take precedence?

Until we become righteously indignant towards what we behold, our being full of vision (purposefully guided, instructed and directed by the Holy Spirit), will inevitably be consumed by visionless hope.  See what you seen then embrace what you behold!

Visionless Hope (Pt. 1)

Sunday, May 13, 2012

Scriptures:  Ecc. 5:3, Prov. 29:18, Rom. 5:3-5 (AMP) Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV), Jeremiah 25:5-11, 29, 1-5, 14, Prov. 13:12, Hab. 1:12-17, 2:2-3 (NLT), Prov. 23:7, 9, 12, 17-18 (NKJV)

When you awake in the morning what do you see?  Do you see the Creator’s creation for your future or do you see nothing?  Whatever it might be, ask yourself the question does it induce feelings of confident expectation or doubt and unbelief?

In the Amplified Version, Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision (redemptive revelation of God) the people perish.” We perish from a lack of hope when insight and foreknowledge of God's plan is absent. Being redeemed from our current situation and propelled into a more hopeful and significant set of circumstances appear afar off when we have no dreams, goals, ambition or vision.

You see, God given dreams and visions are supernatural glimpses of hope into the purpose and future for our lives. In transitioning from visionless to vision-full hope, do not become sidetracked when others appear to be prospering; remain hope-full in God’s plan to prosper you. In other words, vision is crucial in the life of a believer because it’s the birthing of self through God’s eyes; God’s preference over what our lives should mimic.

Someone once stated a profound truth which said, “the first person you lead is you and the first organ you master is your mind.” In short, the root of our hopelessness towards our vision stems from our wasting our thoughts on those who do not hunger for them. Similarly, whatever you focus on you will attract, and if you see nothing, you will attract nothing on any level.

Vision to the believer is hope for a preferred future and assist in perfecting saints. Faith in your vision is given for the maintaining of hope. Hope is given for the sustaining of your vision when the seen is not seen by everyone else!
