What if I told you that your eyesight could be damaging your vision? Sounds crazy, huh? What do I mean by the previous statement? Simply this: What we see with our physical sight is situational. Whatever you (we) see with our eyes are things that can change based off our location or environment. Vision, however, is the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.
It is truly possible to have physical sight but lack vision. Don’t allow the things we see and our current situations to rob us of the plans and future God has for us. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “’For 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.’” Godly vision gives us hope and it divinely lays out God’s intentions towards us.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 tells us to write the vision. So why does God want us to write out his plan for our future? I believe it’s to document His victories once revealed. It allows us to go back and see that God’s plan and will is perfect for the imperfect. It allows us to share His gospel (good news) that the Lord our God is Alpha and Omega, beginning and the end. Just as His Word says, “It is written”… let’s not take the many times that phrase is mentioned in the Bible for granted. God has a reason for writing things down, highlighted by all the references of “It is written.” Jesus Christ is the WORD of God; (John 1:1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (Rhema- Living Word of God)!!! So, get this!… the Word became flesh, and then spoke to the heart of men. He chose to record Himself in WRITTEN WORD or Logos - the root for logic to be WRITTEN!!!! Family, WRITE THE VISION… write the word… write the knowledge that God has given to us!!!! Then watch the glory of the Lord be revealed!!!!- Chelly Toler
