Meditation on my vision…

The fact is, God, the Master, does nothing without first telling his prophets the whole story. Amos 3:7

Eric and DanielI don’t have to wonder what God’s vision is for my life, I simply have to look. God has outlined it in His word and inspires me to live it through His spirit.

I don’t have to wonder what to do. I don’t have to wander in darkness. God does not operate in secret. He does not withhold His vision from those He loves. God’s word details His plan and it is available to me any time I need.

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews 4:16

Vision lives in boldness. Boldness resides where fear has died. In my dreams…lying in peace and hoping for my future…there is no fear. There, in that place of hope, is my vision.  I close my eyes, meditate on His hope, receive His grace and let go of the emotions of fear, regret and guilt.  God’s grace gives me clarity and there I see the vision of my future.

A visionary sees what can be and wakes to what is. T.D. Jakes

My past does not dicate my future. My present does not deter me from choosing trust. I live in “what is” but see “what can be.”

Vision is faith in pictures. Dean Sweetman

As I see where I am and look to where I want to go, I realize that the process is not immediate. Realization of my dreams is a journey. Faith is the bridge and action (movement) takes me from where I am to where I long to be.

This vision-message is a witness
pointing to what’s coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
And it doesn’t lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It’s on its way. It will come right on time. Habakkuk 2:3-4

Time is my mountain and patience is my giant. But as I wait, my trust and hope grows.

When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. 1 Corinthians 13:11-12

Hope expands my vision and perseverance matures my resolve. As I mature my wisdom grows and my understanding bears fruit.

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Proverbs 4:7
