What Is A God-inspired Vision? – part 7
There is a difference between a person who has a dream and a person who has a God-inspired vision. Dreamers dream about things being different, while a person with a God-inspired vision envisions themselves making a difference. Dreamers think about how nice it would be for something to be done, while a person with a God-inspired vision looks for an opportunity to actually do something.
A problem as a solution?
A God-inspired vision can be communicated as a solution to a problem that must be immediately addressed.
A problem is often times very obvious, but over time many people don’t recognize it anymore because they’ve been looking at it for a long time. The problem may not actually be part of the vision, but rather gives reason for presenting the vision. Stating the problem engages the mind … stating the solution engages the imagination … but a compelling God-inspired vision will engage the heart.
Galatians 6:9 (NIV)
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
The Point Is: Keep pursuing the vision.
Prayer: “Lord, there are days when I don’t feel worthy of what You’ve asked me to do, and I get
discouraged. Today’s one of those days, I’m just tired. I ask that You re-energize me with
Your power and peace, and I’m thank You in advance for what I know will come!”
