‘…Write the vision and make it plain…’ Habakkuk 2:2 NKJV
Notice two important things about vision: (1) Your vision must come from God. There’s a difference between setting your own goals and having a God-given vision. When your vision is of God, ‘…it will surely come…’ (Habakkuk 2:3 NKJV) You won’t have to orchestrate events; God will provide the resources and open doors at the right time. Your steps will be directed by Him. Here’s an interesting Scripture: ‘…time and chance happen to them all. For man also does not know his time: like fish taken in a cruel net, like birds caught in a snare, so the sons of men are snared in an evil time…’ (Ecclesiastes 9:11–12 NKJV) God will reveal to you your destiny and give you an opportunity to fulfil it. But you can resist it, or postpone it, or give your life to other things and end up missing your ‘time’ and ‘chance’. Don’t get caught in that net or trapped in that snare and miss what God has for you.
(2) Your vision will be connected to a certain field. Joseph’s dream started with a field of wheat (Genesis 37:6–7). What’s your field? Whether God calls you to the field of medicine, education, finance, leadership, or some other field, it’s to be a blessing to others. God told Abraham, ‘…I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.’ (Genesis 12:2 NIV) Don’t seek fame, seek to serve others. If you do your impact will be greater than your image and your eternal reward greater than anything this world can give you.
