The wise king of Israel, Solomon, stated in his book of Proverbs, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18 KJV).
These words have been quoted and repeated by millions of people over the years because they capture the significant role vision has in our individual, corporate, and national lives. The full essence of his statement implies that where there is no revelation of the future, people throw off self-control, personal discipline, and restraint.
Simply put, vision is the source of personal and corporate discipline.
Our world today is in desperate need of vision. Even a casual look at the prevailing conditions in our twenty-first century world is enough to produce fear, hopelessness, and uncertainty.
There are many who have no vision for their lives and wonder how to obtain one. There are others who have a vision but are stuck in the mud of confusion not knowing what to do next.
Then there are those who had a vision but abandoned it because of discouragement, disillusionment, some measure of failure, or frustration. If you are in one of these categories, you will soon understand the nature of vision, how to capture or recapture your personal vision, how to simplify your vision, and how to document your vision.
How can I know what my vision is? How can I make my vision a concrete reality? Let’s uncover the answers together in the following pages!
Father, You have said in Your Word that without a vision, Your people will perish. I want to walk in the abundant life that Jesus came to give me. I ask You to answer my questions concerning vision today and in the days to come. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: Our world today is in desperate need of vision.
