We can better understand vision when we realize that our purpose has already been completed in eternity. The following passage entirely changed my perspective on the fulfillment of vision: I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.(Isaiah 46:9–10, emphasis added)
In this Scripture, God mentions two things that He does.
First, He establishes the end before the beginning. This means that He finishes things first in the spiritual realm, and then He goes back and starts them up in the physical realm.
Second, He reveals the end result of something when it is just beginning.
I have noticed in the Scriptures the principle that “purpose is established before production.” In other words, God first institutes a purpose, and then He creates someone or something to fulfill that purpose.
He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. We often don’t recognize the fact that when God starts something, He has already completed it in eternity. “Yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).
We can see this principle in creation. Everything was already finished in God’s mind before He laid the foundation of the world. In a similar way, the vision He has placed within you has already been completed in eternity.
Father, You have already completed my purpose in eternity. Help me to fulfill Your plan on earth as I follow Your direction. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: When God starts something, He has already completed it in eternity.
