Visionary thinking

17 August 2020
‘I the LORD make myself known to him in a vision.’

The word vision has lots of meanings. Physical sight aside, there are two meanings to learn from today. We can connect vision with messages from God, as in Acts 2:17, where we’re told ‘your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams’ (NIV). Visions are sent from God to share truth and important words that He wants His people to know. We also come across the idea of vision when we think of plans for the future. We often think of our long-term goals in that way, calling them visions for our lives, or careers, or families. Both types of vision are important, and both are from God. Words from Him, and plans for our lives both require His perspective. In Jeremiah 29:11, God says ‘“I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”’ (NIV). If we truly want to step into the life that God has ready for us, we’ll need to dig deep into what He wants to say to us, and what His plan is for our future. In order to live like this, we have to put everything that we have into our relationship with God. James 4:8 says ‘draw near to God and He will draw near to you’ (NKJV). It’s only when we’re close to Him that our hearts and minds become clear enough for us to receive any kind of vision from Him. Let’s commit ourselves to welcoming the Holy Spirit into our minds, pressing as close to our Father as we can, so that we may ‘see visions’ and ‘dream dreams’ for our lives.

What Now?

Set a timer for 10 minutes. Pray for the Holy Spirit to fill your life today. Ask Him to share God’s vision with you over the coming days.
