We all want to be successful and to accomplish what God has planned for our lives. But, some times we wander about like we are in the dark, stretching out our hands hoping to catch hold of somethimg that will make us secure. The problem with that is, if the lights never come on you will not be able to see and what good will it be to just be holding on to something.
We have to be able to see what is in front of us in order to go any where. I don't know about you, but I want to go far and I want to accomplish EVERYTHING that God has for me. And in order to do that I have to have VISION. Vision is the act or power of seeing; SIGHT; the act or power of imagination; Revelation.
Proverbs 29:18 says:
Without revelation, people run wild, but one who keeps the law will be happy. (HCSB)
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. (KJV)
If you want to get any where you MUST have vision. Major League baseball player, Mark McGwire, for his career averaged a home run once every 10.61 bats, the best at bats per home run ratio in baseball history. When asked how did he make so many home runs, Mark McGwire said: "before I go up to bat, I see myself at the plate hitting a home run."
Mark McGwire had vision; he had the power if seeing; he had the power of imagination. What can you see yourself doing? What can you imagine yourself doing? God can do that and even more. Ephesians 3:20 says:
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
So my friends grab hold of your vision and imagine seeing yourself doing it!!! What exactly do you see? Do you see yourself owning a business? Do you see yourself teaching and shaping lives? What do you see? Whatever you see yourself doing, could be your vision. Open your eyes and use that power of seeing to envision what God has for you. Every day God will show you great and exciting things, don't miss out, continue to ask yourself, what do you see?
