Write the Vision
Write the Vision
The Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”
Habakkuk was overwhelmed by the devastation surrounding him. He couldn’t get his focus off the violence and injustice that was happening in his country. After a sincere prayer, fully expecting God would respond to his questions, he waited in a position of watchful expectation (staying aware and listening). God gave Habakkuk the revelation on how to make a better society and told him to write the vision. God knew His vision for Israel was too large for Habakkuk to carry out alone. Therefore, it was necessary for him to write out the vision so those called to complete the vision were successful.
God’s Word gives specific instructions for how to pursue the dreams He has placed in our hearts. God tells us to write the vision. Writing the vision is obedience to Him. The act of doing what God says shifts us from a passive hearer to an active doer. Acting on His instruction places us in a position to receive His highest and best, creating success and amazing results.
Write the Vision
Have a vision. Give up religious ideas and begin to believe that it is God’s will for you to do what is written in your heart. Trying to figure out God’s will for you based on religious ideas generates doubt. Vision is the power of imagination. Be still and allow the Lord to speak to your heart. He will reveal dreams and desires far greater than you can imagine (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Write the vision. Writing brings clarity to our thoughts. Clarity is important because it provides focus. Once focus is achieved, it is easier to create a plan to fulfill your dream. Make a list of what you want to eliminate from your life, be specific. Debt, extra weight, pain, anxiety, controlling fears? Learn to live the ‘let go’ life. “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” I Peter 5:7. Write them down and imagine what it would be like if they were gone (Hebrews 11:1). It is necessary to do this faith action, discuss it with God routinely.
Make a list of what you want, be specific. “All things are possible to him who believes.”(Mark 9:23). Write them down as if you already have them without limits, no ands, ifs, or buts. Have the boldness to say, “I have this now!” The thoughts you speak, by faith, will become the thing in your future. All things are possible. I have what I say. Every need is met. Every desire is fulfilled. For every dream there is direction. If you really want something in your life, you must say it out loud. Because of Jesus Christ, everything from God is already provided for and is available. Believe and receive. Jesus is the only door for His sheep (John 10:7, Acts 4:12). Jesus provides salvation, safely and sustenance to all who enter through Him. When we accept Jesus Christ as Savior, He being the door, is opened and we are in His pasture, one of total provision and continuous supply. A pasture is seeing and feeling abundance. It is more than enough so we can be a channel of provision to others.
Take action. Move ahead in the direction of your dream and the provision and the how to appear. So many amazing things happen when you understand that the just (saved) live by faith. “…they shall run and not be weary….” (Isaiah 40:31). Do not get tired of moving and living by faith. “Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; do not fret…” (Psalm 37:7). To wait with patience is powerful. Renew your mind with God’s Word.
