Compelling Vision

Written by Boyd Bailey

Compelling Vision… “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18 KJV

How God-sized is your vision? Is it doomed to failure unless by faith your Heavenly Father comes through? Hard times can torment your dreams to the point of losing the passion you once had which expects the Lord to deliver large results. It’s His vision that brought you to this place and it’s His vision that will propel you forward. Rise above any earthly excuses and like Nehemiah be bold to ask for provisions from unconventional sources. “It pleased the king to send me; so I set a time” (Nehemiah 2:6b).

Our King of Kings, Jesus Christ, is waiting to work through earthly authorities on our behalf. Our part is to prayerfully show up with a plan and ask unashamedly with a compelling vision. Don’t waste time wondering if it is the right time. Set a time and by faith trust the Lord that He will come through beyond your expectations. Collaborate with Christ. Get counsel from godly advisors and then present your case by faith.

You have worked hard, overcome adversity and sacrificed to see the fruition of your dream come true. Big vision brings out big people and big resources. Without a compelling vision your resources and relationships will continue to dwindle, but with a compelling vision they will flourish. A big vision of the Lord brings out your best and the best in others. Keep Christ the central focus of your faith and be faithful to His compelling call.

Do I confidently cast a compelling vision? Am I trusting the Lord for big things or am I bound up by earthly expectations? Compelling vision is your motivation to move forward by faith and see your Heavenly Father work in ways you can’t imagine. “And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen” (Ephesians 3:19-21, KJV).”
