The power of a vision

Proverbs 29:18

Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained

So many people live their life by the law of accidents. When things work it is surprise! They wish for good things, but their dream is no more than a lot of talk with no substance.

To live a full life it is vital to have a vision of what you want your life to look like.

If you have no vision, you have nothing that can provide parameters for your life. You are not trying to go anywhere in particular and so anything goes. You live an unrestrained life where the rewards are few. You are like a man who sets out on a journey with no particular destination in mind, and who is already lost at the outset.

That his how the average man lives. He confuses activity with productivity; but in fact even though he may run on the treadmill, he isn’t going anywhere.

Vision is God’s design for taking you from where you are today to where you are going tomorrow. True vision isn’t just a vague and hopeful longing or wish; it will enable you to plot a course in life.

Many people don’t ever focus on a vision  because they are so preoccupied with nursing the wounds from their past. They cannot move forward

God is not interested in where you have been, however, but where you are going. To the living there is hope and another opportunity to get it right.

Average people talk about how many times they fell; great people talk about how they got up.

There is nothing you can do about your past apart from learn from it. Its only value lies in the wealth of experience it gives you. It is capital and equity. If you are an excellent investor you can take that capital and invest it into a better tomorrow. Your past is only wasted if you don’t learn from it and use it to get better.

Fresh vision is the thing that creates distance from past hurts and painful memories. Fresh vision for what you want to achieve and become will give you the impetus to move forward again.

It is then that you start to even say, “I am glad they turned me down for that job,”  Or, “I’m glad that first idea for a business didn’t work.”

Trust God! He will take every aspect of what you went through and turn it for your good.
