What Is A God-inspired Vision? part 4

Even though a vision is God-inspired, it can begin to die during a stretch of inactivity while you are waiting.  It can be discouraging to continue dreaming about something that appears to have no potential of ever happening.  It’s important to keep your focus moving forward.

Do you keep looking backward instead of forward?

A God-inspired vision uses your circumstances to position and prepare you to accomplish
the vision He has given you.

This is easy to see when you are looking back, but it always takes faith when looking ahead.
Often you cannot see any tangible connection between your circumstances and the vision God has given you. Even though it may not make sense to you on the surface, rest assured that God is working behind the scenes to position everything needed to accomplish the vision He has given. You will always know what God has put in your heart to do long before you know how He intends to bring it about.

The “what” of the vision, always precedes the “how.” You know what God has called you to do, but over time, not knowing how causes you to lower your sights and shoot for a target that you have some hopes of hitting. You settle for a lesser vision that you think we can accomplish. Keep your eyes on God.

Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do god works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

The Point is:  A God-inspired vision requires God-intervention.

Prayer:  “Keep me inspired Lord!  Help me to remain confident in the vision You’ve given me and to
not settle for anything less!”

Next time – ‘Not yet’… two hard words to hear.
