“When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild….” (NLT)
“Where there is no vision, the people perish………”(KJV)
“Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint…..”(NIV)
It is very important for a person to have a vision about his life. Many times we see that people are confused. They want to take some decision but they are not sure about it. Many try to do many things and end up fustrated because they do not find joy in doing it.
But if a person has a Vision or divine guidance about his life then things can be different. God has a plan for every person. Paul says in Ephesians 1:4
“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight”
So even before you were born God has seen you for a purpose in this world. Thats what he told Jeremiah 1:5 ”Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
But many times we don’t pray or seek God’s divince guidance for our life. But if we sit in the presence of God then He will surely revel his plan for our life and give us a vision. Then it will be very easy to take decisions in our life as we know what is God’s will for our life.
A classic example is that of Joshua & Caleb. You can read about it in Numbers 13 & 14. They were sure about what God wanted through life- Land of Cannan. But other 10 people who went out to spy were not sure and hence we see that they lost the promise of God. We see a generation wandering in wilderness for 40 years. Out of all the people who were above 20yrs only 2-Joshua & Caleb entered Cannan the promised land. Joshua led the conquest and Caleb in the end got Horeb as God promised him.
Let me give is three benefits of having a vision in your life:-
- Vision will bring Faith
- Vision will inspire Courage
- Vision will result in Action
