I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. HABAKKUK 2:1-2
These are the effects or the outcomes of vision, what vision can produce, what vision leads to. I will like to take you through 5 of them
1.) Vision generates action: Men of vision are men of action, vision makes time an asset, when you have too much time at your disposal with nothing to do, its most likely that you lack vision. The vision that Paul had for the church made him go the extra mile in spreading the good news in a giving amount of time, even with all the oppositions he had from both man, the devil and nature, he still continued in his course. Also David was a man of vision (1 Samuel 17:43-51). He saw himself defeating Goliath and cutting off his head without a sword in his hand. Also he never wavered concerning his position as king of Israel. Final example is Joseph (Genesis 41). Pharaoh had a dream, and when Joseph was called on, he interpreted it, gave the solution and when he was made ruler over Egypt, with vision he went into action and accomplished the unthinkable in just 7 years. Why i said unthinkable is that, he was able to discover at that time, a means to preserve even perishable products like tomatoes. When a man has vision he moves into action.
2.) Vision deals with affliction: Vision paralysis affliction. It paralysis every mental or satanic conditions. You cannot keep a man of vision down, who has no reason to be down. If you have a vision, life will give you time to birth the vision. I know of a man who was down with cancer, when he was asked what his plans for the next 5 years was, he gave a very positive reply and the cancer died in no due time. It is when people don’t see themselves coming out of afflictions by vision that they remain down. keep picturing it and you will capture it eventually. Blind Bartimaeus saw himself seeing once again and God made it to be so (Mark 10:46-52). Many times you have to see it in your heart for it to come into reality.
3) Vision makes a man to flourish: Proverbs 29:18,‘Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.’ People perish without vision, and prosper when there they have vision. A man of vision cannot dry off because vision has power to make him flourish. If people perish for lack of vision, then they flourish when thy have vision. Daniel 2:19 ‘ Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.’ The secret got revealed to Daniel and that saved a lot of people from being killed. though it was a positive dream which would lead to the establishment of King Nebuchadnezzar it would have lead to much disaster if there was no vision. May God help you to acquire a positive vision that will make you to flourish in Jesus’ Name
