VisionAround 3,000 years ago, one of the wisest men to ever lived made this observation:

Proverbs 29:18. Where there is no revelation (vision or insight), people cast off restraint (they perish, run wild or live carelessly); but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction. NIV

A vision can be defined as "a picture of a preferred future that creates passion on the inside of us."

Without vision, life is a bit of a drudgery. The days drag along without much direction or purpose. In contrast, with a vision we live motivated lives. A vision causes us to set goals that propel us forward each day, whether it is finishing a degree, getting a job, winning the grand final, starting a business, engaging in a ministry, or losing weight.

What’s your vision for your life? What do you SEE this year?

The good news is that God has great plans for us, to give us a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11. “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.” NIV

This connects with the inbuilt desire we have for purpose, meaning and contribution.

Take time to receive, clarify and focus on God's vision for your life.

Vision. Think about it.
