The Oil Of Joy - Vision Retreat
18 Without prophetic vision (divine guidance), people abandon restraint, but those who obey the Law are happy (blessed).
Our vision must always be bigger than our hindrances. Life brings obstacles our way whether we choose to move forward or remain the same. Therefore the best way to have a fruitful life is to always make our vision larger than everything else. This cannot be done with our own human mind because our ability to think beyond our circumstances is limited. It takes God coming into the picture to open our eyes to a whole new world. And we require faith to be able to connect with the bigger picture and believe we can make. Which is why Jesus said that if we have faith as small as a mustard seed we can speak to mountains and they will move. It was to teach us that every God given dream has the power to overcome hurdles if we keep persevering and declaring the word of faith.
A vision is the road map to our lives which guides us in our daily activities. It makes us live our lives not just for the present or past but for the future we are creating for ourselves. It is great to be able to take a chunk of about 3 days to go away to pray, and read the bible in order to create our ultimate vision. But if this is not possible it is important to at least take 10 minutes each day to build the vision. For families it is important to have a corporate vision from which each person builds their personal vision. We will realise that as soon as God helps create our vision, He will begin to make provision for that vision.
MAKE THE GODLY VISION YOUR FIRST PRIORITY
Prayer: Father, I pray that as I spend time with You in prayer and study of the word, You will reveal and refine Your vision for my life in Jesus Name. Amen.
HAPPY NEW YEAR: VISION IN THE YEAR 2018
