Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man]—blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.
— Proverbs 29:18 (AMPC)
God has satisfaction, fullness, and completeness in mind for us. I never felt satisfied or complete in my life until I was doing what God had ordained for me to do. Fullness only comes through being in the center of God’s will.
We all need and want to believe that the future will be better than the past for us. If we can’t believe that, we will be miserable; in fact, in a sense we will perish if we are without hope and not feeling blessed. Today’s Scripture encourages us to have vision.
A vision is something we see in our minds, “a mental sight.” It may be something God plants in us supernaturally or something we see on purpose. It involves the hopes and dreams we have for the future. And one of the best things about it is that we simply have to believe in it. Some people are afraid to believe. They think believing will set them up for disappointment. They need to realize that they will be perpetually disappointed if they don’t believe. I feel that if I believe for a lot and even get half of it, I am better off than I would be to believe for nothing and get all of it.
I challenge you today to start believing for good things in your life. Believe you can do whatever you need to do through Christ. Dream big dreams and believe they can come true—because nothing is impossible with God!
Prayer Starter: Father, plant in my heart all Your dreams and visions for my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
