Can we SEE?!!
“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”
– Prov. 29:18 KJV
Having a vision for our life is absolutely critical for forward motion, progress and intentional focus. There is an additional aspect of vision that is essential to the fulfillment of all that God has determined for our lives and that is the development and role of prophetic vision.
The word vision, again we think in our minds as being some sort of plan, however I believe there is an additional aspect of this word that we are missing. The word “vision” in the Hebrew carries the idea of (mental) sight according to Strong’s Concordance. This tells us that having a vision in more than words on a paper. Some translations render the word “vision” as “prophetic revelation” or “prophetic vision.” This is very insightful. God has a prophetic vision for each of our lives.
God has foreseen the future details of our lives, in essence this is a prophetic vision. God’s prophetic vision is given to lift our focus from the natural to the supernatural, eternal and divine will of God for our lives. He releases vision to us to shift our focus from fear to faith, from limited to limitless, from constrained to the enlarged, wide-open possibilities in God.
Vision is the precursor to proclamation and production. Before we are ever going to speak out our future we have to have a vision for it. We have to see it so that we can see it!!
