VISION: an experience in which a person, thing, or event appears vividly or credibly to the mind, although not actually present. Simply put, seeing things mentally before they are manifested physically.
Wow! What an awesome understanding of the word vision. King Solomon, the world’s wisest man that ever existed said the following as it relates to the importance of vision, “Where there is no VISION the people perish, Proverbs 29:18.
If I had to use one word to define Christianity that word would be VISION. You see, based on the understanding of the word vision it causes one to see or imagine things in existence mentally prior to its physical manifestation. Everything that exists on this earth, its blue print was etched in the minds of its creator or inventor prior to its existence. Well my friend this is what makes Christianity seperate and apart from any other religion, and that is, living now mentally what you anticipate to experience the reality of later.
Well, in terms of our Christian faith we are told to call things that are not presently manifested into existing as if they are in existence already. Now, to the natural mind this sounds completely foolish. However this is what the Christian faith is all about. The Apostle Paul told the church or Corinth in his letter to them, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned, 1 Corinthians 2:14. So vision for the believer is entirely spiritual, at the same time equates to absolute foolishness to the non-believer.
The believer must always see himself succeeding, prospering, being healed of his infirmities, living in abundance, happy and enjoying life etc, even though “reality” would falsely dictate it is not so. Nevertheless so called “reality” isn’t reality if GOD SAYS IT’S SO! The truth is, this is how his creator sees him! In fact this is his creator’s VISION of him. In my humble opinion, God is the greatest motivator, he says to us in our present disliked, disadvantage position we’re the head and not the tail, we’re above only and not beneath, we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, we are more than conquerors, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, we must give no thought for tomorrow because he has addressed tomorrow already. Our bible IS A BOOK OF GOD HIMSELF TELLING THOSE THAT WILL BELIEVE WHO THEY REALLY ARE AND WHAT THEY ARE ENTITLE TO IN SPITE OF BEING IN A TEMPORAL DISADVANTAGE POSITION!
Words of Wisdom Group make no mistake you receiving from God is heavily dependent on your vision in terms of your expectation of God, because his vision of you is abundantly and unequivocally clear. As proof of this scripture tells us, “According to our faith (vision) be it unto us” Matthew 9:29. Suggesting, whatever vision we have of ourselves and our belief in that vision, we will be a participant of that vision one day.
My advice; create a vision in your mind with things that are positive and how you desire to see yourself in the future, begin to see yourself being debt free, owning your own home, putting your kids through college, living a stress free life, doing what God has called you to do, advancing yourself through education. As a reminder God said that we can do all things through him because he’s the one strengthening us to achieve our vision.
Secondly, start behaving as if it has happened to you already. When leaving work today behave as if you are going home to your own home that is fully paid off even though so call “reality” dictates that you’re still renting. When you look in your cupboards imagine it’s full to capacity but more importantly begin thanking God for what isn’t present as yet physically. Thank him for that debt free home; thank him for college tuition being paid in advance. Act as if that previous bad relationship was just a stepping stone for the vision of what you truly desire to have, and thank him for a body that has been healed. BEHAVE AS IF IT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED. LET YOUR CONVERSATIONS AND ACTIONS FROM THIS MOMENT FORWARD BE POSITIVE AS IT RELATES TO WHAT YOUR VISION AND EXPECTATION FROM GOD IS.
It is up to you my friend, life and death is in the power of YOUR TONGUE! Couple with that, Jesus said, “According to your faith (vision) be it unto you. I hope this has encouraged you, and even though I am the one writing this under the influence of the Holy Spirit I am presently being encouraged as well, as I type this simple reminder from the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit is presently echoing in my spirit right now, “If you delight yourself in me I will give you the desires of your heart, Psalms 37:4
“WHATSOEVER THINGS YOU DESIRE WHEN YOU PRAY BELIEVE THAT YOU’VE RECEIVE IT AND YOU SHALL HAVE IT” Mark 11:24.
