Let Your Vision Live
Many people have vision but not many realize they do. I was just sitting here meditating on a few things, reading over some verses and then it hit me. Everyone that has sight can't see and everyone that has vision may not see it come to pass.
Vision and sight in this context are different. You can have great physical vision but be as blind as a blind bat when it comes to seeing (or sight of) the will of the Lord and His plan of salvation. God's plan for your life is right there in your face and you can't see it, why?
Because you are hearing too many voices. Such as radio, television, music, and others. People running to every revival they can find. Following every wanna be Prophet and still in the same predicament, why? Going from church to church in search of the right _______, who knows what. No wonder the world won't come to the church for answers, we are just as confused as they are. We are just as desperate as they are, we are just as angry as they are, we are just as weak (living any kind of way) as they are. Why? I'll tell you why because we won't let His Vision Live in us. Because you are afraid! Stand up soldier of the Lord. God the King of kings has not given us the spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind. I once heard someone say get over your fears, get over your self condemnation, and I would like to add to that get over their faces, and you can do anything. Get over the faces of people looking at you like you are crazy because they don't understand the call of God almighty on your life. Onward Christian soldier marching unto war. It may not seem like it to you but we are in a war for our very life.
What is Vision? It is seeing into the realm of the imagination. Seeing beyond what our physical senses can see or tell us. It is seeing and speaking of things that don't exist as though they do. It is the reality of the invisible. What is Vision? It is the good of a dream that you can't shake or undo. What is Vision? It is believing when you have no reason to believe that it is possible. What is Vision? It is when mankind dreamed of a plane by looking at a bird but didn't know what to call it. It is when mankind dreamed of opening a can but did not want to use a knife or rock any more so he made a “can opener”. What is Vision? It is when a child wants to run but they haven't taken their first baby step yet. What is Vision? It's the God given drive that we all possess to achieve and accomplish our God birthed call and our God rebirth call on earth. What is Vision? You can see it in your mind's eye but you still can't explain it, you just need to walk it out. You can see it with such force and tenacity that others began to see it as clear as you. It is what causes the few or the many to follow someone into the wilderness looking for a promised resort of sorts. What is Vision? You can't shake it off of you but if you don't walk it out it will go to the grave with you. Vision has made everything in life you enjoy today and the things we don't enjoy as well or too much. Vision is one of the most powerful forces on earth that the Father of Heaven and Earth gave to mankind to achieve His will on earth. My friend Let Your Vision Live. You have a Vision. You have a dream. You have greatness living inside of you waiting to exhale. Let Your Vision Live.
The job of our enemy is to blind our minds. II Corinthians 3:14-16 states this,” But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. (v.15) But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart, (v.16) Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord the veil is taken away”.
Praise God! That is reason enough to shout and say it loud. “I am free and I can see the will of God for my life” no more veil blinding me, no more chains holding me back. I will accomplish the Father's will for my life. My friend you know what a veil is right? It is the cloth or thing we see or use to see a bride cover her face with until it was time to kiss her groom. We always see them in the old Arabian movies. The veil today is being used in multiple methods by the enemy. His main weapon today is politics or “political correctness” our education system, idolatry and music. Satan's forces have come out of the closet so to speak and have boldly taken the stage. Challenging moral beliefs all over the world. Abruptly and forcibly trying to make the people of God cover their minds eye and say nothing. Giving the leaders of Christianity all the material pleasures of the world just so they don't say to them you are wrong and you are in “sin”. After all how can we say that if we are doing the same thing. How can we say to the political leaders your endorsement of sin is your business and it is wrong and I will not accept it as God's will. If! we applaud it from our radio/TV station pulpits how does that make us look. How can we condemn it if we condone it and partake of the “Forbidden Fruit”. Yes satan put a person of color into the white house, so what! Yes he says he is a Christian, so what! Yes he says he loves God, so what! Open your eyes people! The fruit of his labor has not been to advance the Kingdom of God or the gospel of Jesus Christ, but to advance the kingdom of satan and make you and I accept what God rejects. My friend you can know a tree by the fruit it bears. Our enemy has wielded a well forged plan and he's been at work for many years “Blinding the Minds” and “Keeping the Veil” over the eyes. It's time for you and I to snatch the veil off, ask God for forgiveness and pursue the Vision of God for our lives like never before. Distractions! Distractions! Distractions!
WAKE UUUPPP!!! It's time friend to ”Let Your Vision Live”.
In II Corinthians 3:17 it states, “Now the Lord is that Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”. Praise God! We are free! Free! Free! Free! Friend, if you have accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior you are free to do His will and live for Him. He will not ask us to do more than we are able to handle. He will give us wisdom which is free just for the asking. He will not hold back from us the blessing of His presence or the things in this earth that we desire. He wants to bless us and give us our hearts desires. Look at II Corinthians 3:18, it reads “But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”. Wow! Take a deep breath and in a symbolic jester take a hand or both hands and snatch the veil off your face and say these words aloud, “my heart is changing to please God and do His will”. Don't stop now say “Be it unto me as you have spoken Lord”. Say, I may not remember everything you have spoken to me right now but I ask of your Holy Spirit to bring it back to my memory. Help me to see your will and plan for my life I will to open my mind, I will to open my heart and I say Lord your will be done in my live. Kingdom of God come will of God be done in my life on earth as it is in heaven. I will to “ Let The Vision Live”.
Yours in Christ,
