Visions are greatly misunderstood by Christians. God, by His Spirit through His Word, gives us a clear vision of His will. This can be a personal vision of what He is calling us to do, or a group vision, His plan for a church or ministry. When received, we must “walk in the light” of that vision (1 John 1:7). These visions are personal. We get ourselves into trouble when we apply our vision to others or try to apply the vision of others to our situations. God has plans for all His children; they are not all exactly the same.
Take a moment now and give it some thought. Has God revealed His plan for you, a vision. If not or if you are not sure then more time with Him and His word is called for. Visions are never contrary to the word of God and are usually conveyed through it. Visions become clearer and more real as we begin to walk in them, one step at a time.
Group visions require additional effort. We should openly discuss the vision with other members of any Christian group we are part of. Failure to have a common vision will cripple the group and insure its failure.
“”And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.” Joel 2:28 We are so blessed to live in the times of which Joel prophesied. Be sure to grab hold of and walk out God’s vision for you.
