Topic: Biblical Examples of Men of Vision
SCRIPTURE: And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. Genesis 13:14-15.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To be dreamless is to be doomed.
MESSAGE: From our previous studies, we saw the importance of vision in life. We saw that vision is what takes a person to where he is meant to be in life.
Today, we shall look at men of vision and how they ended.
Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional: The Blessing of Vision
There were men in the Bible and in our contemporary world who had vision and their vision took them to greater heights in life. A few examples of these men would make us pursue our vision for living:
God told Abraham that He would give the land He saw to his descendants. God fulfilled His promise and gave the land of Canaan to the children of Israel, the descendants of Abraham because he (Abraham) saw it.
In Genesis Chapter 37, Joseph saw himself as the leader of his brothers. Though it took him thirteen years to actualise that vision, it eventually came to pass when he became a leader in Egypt. The dreams of today are the realities of tomorrow. To be dreamless is to be doomed.
He had a vision of bringing down Goliath and the vision came to pass (1 Samuel 17: 49-50)
Moses had a vision of delivering his people from the bondage of Egypt. Even though he failed at his first attempt, the vision eventually came to pass when God stepped in (Exodus 12:40).
Beloved, endeavour to follow the practical steps of these great men of God by conceiving a vision for your life.
REMEMBER THIS: To be dreamless is to be doomed.
1. Take a closer study of the lives of Abraham, Joseph, David and Moses.
2. Practice what you learn from their lives.
