Committed to God’s Vision

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

The Bible promises that “where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained.” (The classic King James translation says that they “perish.”) But the opposite of this is also true: Without a people, the vision perishes. Without people who believe in the vision, and obey God, the task of fulfilling His vision will not be done.

Clearly, God has a vision. A plan for our lives. He wants to bless us. He wants us to experience His fullness and joy. He wants to meet our needs, and lift our burdens. And He has tasks for each person to accomplish.

He also has a plan for the world. He desires peace on earth. He desires harmony and fellowship with people everywhere. He desires that people escape poverty and sickness, and experience His riches and abundance.

But God also allows each of us have options and choices. We can do what we want, seek our own ways, and follow our own direction. Or we can cooperate with Him, obey Him, and seek to serve Him and follow His ways.

The Bible makes clear that God seeks “true worshipers,” who will worship Him “in spirit and truth” (John 4:23). He seeks men and women who, like the disciples of Jesus, will follow Him wherever He leads. Who are committed to Him, and willing to serve Him to make His vision become a reality.

Today, pray that God would show you more clearly than ever before just what His vision is for your life. Ask Him to give you a sense of His vision for you, and the world. Commit yourself to cooperating with Him to see that His vision becomes reality and commit to praying that His Kingdom would come and His will would be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
