Vision Is about God

Drawing Out the Vision by myles munroe
August 7

At its essence, vision isn’t about us—it’s about God. Proverbs 19:21 says, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”

 

True vision is not a human invention. It’s about the desires God imparts to us. His purpose was established well before we had any plans for our lives. We were meant to consult God to find out His purposes for us so we can make the right plans.

 

Ecclesiastes 3:14 says, “I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.”

 

Let’s review the following facts:
Purpose is the source of your vision. Your purpose existed before you did. What you were born to do was accomplished by God before you even arrived on the scene, and He ordained your birth in order to carry it out.

 

We must understand the key to recognizing personal vision. After reading my books on purpose, many people write to me and say, “Okay, I read your book. It’s wonderful, it changed my life, and I’m ready to go, except that I don’t know what my vision is. Tell me how to find it.” To find your vision, you have to look within yourself, where God has placed it.

 

The key is this: God’s will is as close to us as our most persistent thoughts and deepest desires.

 

Prayer:
Father, I realize that vision is about You and not about me. Vision is about fitting into Your plan for establishing Your kingdom on this earth. Lead me into my part of that plan. In Jesus’ name, amen.

 

Thought: To find your vision, you have to look within yourself, where God has placed it.

Reading: Psalm 72–73; Romans 9:1–15
