When we understand the relationship between personal and corporate vision, we will recognize a chief way in which God fulfills people’s dreams.
Proverbs 20:5 says, “The purposes of a man’s heart are [like] deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out.” In other words, everyone has a vision in his heart, but a person of understanding causes that dream, that purpose, that vision to be brought out so it can become reality.
A person of understanding will figuratively lower a bucket into the deep well-waters of your soul and begin to draw out what you are dreaming and thinking.
What is the process by which this occurs? After God conveys a vision to a leader, you will then somehow come into contact with this person, who will present the corporate vision. You will become excited about participating in it because you will see how your private vision finds fulfillment in it.
It is essential for you to understand that God brings the corporate vision into your life not to give you vision, which He has already given you, but to stir up your personal vision. In other words, you don’t receive your vision from other people, but you are enabled to fulfill it through others.
It is my desire to stir up your vision. As I wrote earlier, my own vision is to inspire and draw out the hidden leader in every person I meet.
You are a leader in the specific purpose God has given you to accomplish through your gift because no one else but you can fulfill it. Are you beginning to believe in the possibilities?
Father, thank You for making me a leader in the vision You have given me for my life. Please enable me to stir up that vision and see it come to fulfillment in You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: God brings the corporate vision into your life to stir up your personal vision.
