What Is A God-inspired Vision? part 1

When you have a clear God-inspired vision and the courage to follow through with that vision, it dramatically increases your chances of coming to the end of your life, looking back with a deep satisfaction and thinking, “I finished well. My life counted.”

How can you tell if a vision is God-inspired?

A God-inspired vision begins as a concern.

A God ordained vision will begin as a concern. You will hear or see something that gets your attention. Something will bother you about the way things are or the way things are headed.

Unlike many passing concerns, this will stick with you. You will find yourself thinking about them in your free time. You may lose sleep over them. You won’t be able to let them go because they won’t let you go. This is not just a casual concern…it is a vision in the making.

Habakkuk 2:2-3(NLT)

“Then the Lord said to me, ‘Write my answer in large, clear letters on a tablet, so that a runner can read it and tell everyone else. But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.’ ”

The Point Is: God has a vision for your life.

Prayer: “I thank you, Lord, for the vision that you place on my heart. I know that it’s from You and

that You will help me every step of the way.”

Next time – When it comes to fulfilling your God-inspired vision, are you impatient?

    This is so true pastor Rich, and personal confirmation for my life…..thank you.

    Sometimes in our zeal to serve the Lord and making our lives matter for “His will” and not ours, frustration can slowly creep in.. I speak for myself when I say that the comparison game can be a vision killer during our season of waiting patiently on Him.

    I’m grateful to the Lord for what He’s taught me over the years (It’s definitely been a process) . Rather than allowing frustration to define who I am…..He’s replaced it with a sense of excitement, anticipation, and not to mention peace for what lies ahead.

    Without the peace of God that surpasses all understanding….patience is simply a word that can be replaced with prison.

    Serving God together.

    Thank you so much for those words. They are very true. At times i rush ahead of God instead of waiting. His timing is always best. I get a word or vision from God and think it is for now, when he is just preparing my heart. In due season He will bring it to pass, I’m to prepare, wait and then go forward.
