Vision and Purpose

In this hour, God has been pouring into us messages and revelations on Vision  and  Purpose. Here are some of the key points from these messages:
 
1.  Without vision there's an absence of guidance and direction and we are unable to see what God has in store for us  Proverbs 29:18 
 
2.  Vision gives us the foresight to see what lies ahead and by faith prepare for it  Habakkuk 2:3
 
3.  Through purpose we understand and are able to initiate God's intention concerning vision  Habakkuk 2:2
 
This blog is officially open for you to share comments pertaining to Vision and Purpose. Please share your thoughts on the key points that we shared and add any additional nuggets and/or comments pertaining to this topic. Higher Life, Remember to BE YE ALSO READY!

"Without vision the people perish". This is a great scripture to live by. This reminds me of how God placed the vision that he had for Israel before their frontlets. How this scripture was actively seen in Exodus when Israel was wondering in the desert after their captivity. God gave them the word that they would inherit a land that flowed with milk and honey (he gave them the vision by the speaking of his word). And to make it more apparent for them, twelve spies were sent to scope out the land (Num 13:24-33). The vision was spoken and then it was shown. But who grabbed the vision? Only two came back with the good report! The other 10 were blindsided by the fear of fighting against those who seemed mightier than them. Because the other 10 and the rest of the congregation who were 20 yrs or older didn't catch the vision, even after knowing about the land and receiving a report that it existed, the Lord did not allowed them to enter into that promised land. Their children who were 20yrs and younger were the ones who got to enter into the land (along with Joshua and Caleb who were the only ones 20yrs and older)(Num 14:1-38). This comes to show how 2 Cor 5:7 "For we walk by faith, not by sight" should be more alive in our lives than ever. We need the faith to believe in the Vision God has given us as a ministry and as individuals in Him. The only way we can catch the vision is if we tap into a true relationship with Him "But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you"(Matt 6:34).

The 10 spies of the children of Israel most definitely lived the opposite of 2 Cor 5:7. They walked by sight and not by faith. God told them the land was theirs to possess He promised it to them. Yet when they returned they said "we were in our OWN sight as grasshoppers" (Numbers 13:33). They chose to follow their own vision of themselves instead of God's vision of them. It is important that we see ourselves as God sees us and He says that "in all these things we are more than conquerors" (Romans 8:37). When we accept that what He says about us is true we trust His vision for our life. Ultimately He has said, "I know the thoughts that I think toward you... thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end"(Jeremiah 29:11).

We may not be aware of it yet, but our existence has a great purpose. We are not alive just to have a meaningless life. God has a vision for all of us, He will call to us and use us for bigger things we could not even imagine. He has a plan and we just have to find out what it is. Pray and listen to him with all sincerity because He always speaks to us in his own way.

When thinking about vision and purpose one biblical figure comes to mind. Joseph the 11th son of Jacob; born to Jacob by his favorite wife Rachel after she was barren for seven years. He was a favorite of his father and the treasure of his mother. He grew up with an abnormal since of his importance in the world. Then to add to his ever growing ego God gave him a dream, a vision of the future, “and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me” (Genesis 37:9). God’s vision for Joseph was set, the purpose and route to get there was obscure. There are three important lessons to be learned from the story of Joseph: 1) Vision is for the future not the present. Vision is: the act or power of anticipating that with will or may come to be. God gave Joseph a dream in Genesis 37:5 and then again in Genesis 37:7. By the time the vision came to pass 22 years had gone by. Joseph had had been enslaved and imprisoned during that time period. Surely he felt discouraged at some point wondering if God’s word would come to pass. But as Habakkuk 2:3 says “the vision is yet for an appointed time… though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry”. Though the Lord is never early he is never late! 2) Vision does not equal apparent. Vision is: the act or power of sensing with the eyes, sight. Just because God gives us a vision does not mean we will understand and know every detail of how that vision will come to pass. Vision is not apparent; readily seen, exposed to sight, open to view. If fact from God’s point of view the less we know the better. If Joseph had known the trials and test he would have to face for God’s vision to come to pass, surely he would have said, no thank you. 3) Visions’ purpose is never just personal. Vision is: an experience in which a person, thing or event appears vividly or credibly to the mind, often under the influence of a divine agency. When Joseph talked about his dreams he told of how his family would one day bow to him. This was only a tiny piece of a very big puzzle. Little did he know that he would be used as a tool to rescue his family from certain death (Genesis 45:7). If Joseph’s family did then God’s promise to Abraham would be broken (Genesis 22:17:18). We know that the Lord can’t break His promises for his word says “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise” (2 Peter 3:9). God’s Vision for Joseph was not just for him.

Habakkuk is the least 'researchable' bible prophet. The vision he speaks of is far from rosy... the important nugget is: to enslave someone is bad; but to enslave your own brother or sister is uncool on a biblical level.

There is no meaning in life if you are not having any purpose of life that is giving you the goals in life. When you are having purpose and vision you are able to get over many things in life for sure.
