Run with the vision
Vision: Ability to see: sight or eyesight. Something that you imagine. A picture that you see in your mind. Something that you see or dream or a supernatural experience or better still, something seen in a dream, trance or ecstasy, especially a supernatural appearance that conveys a revelation or message.
In light of the above, it can be said that God’s agenda for your life and the imagination of what you want to be or accomplish in life is encapsulated in a vision. In Habakkuk 2:2-3, “and the Lord answered and said “write the vision and make it plain upon the tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time but at the end it shall speak and not lie; though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry
The need to run with your vision cannot be over emphasised because life is a race, and in one way or the other, we are all involved in the race of life. It takes the dogged, focused and determined person who runs to breast the tape.For any God-given vision to speak or for you to fulfil your purpose, dreams, goals and aspirations in life, you must pass through these three crucial steps:
• The Trial:
In 1Peter 1:7 “that the trail of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ. A man that has glory must go through groaning.”
Joseph was a man loved by God and his father. God gave him two great dreams that brought hatred and disdain from his brothers. His father perfectly interpreted his dreams that showed that he would undoubtedly be their leader. As beautiful as the dreams were, they never came to pass until he went through trials and hard times in life. Joseph was seventeen years old, when he had his dreams but never fulfil the dreams until he was thirty years old. The period between seventeen to thirty years (Thirteen years) was very horrendous in Joseph’s life. His brothers sold him to slavery in Egypt, lied upon by Potiphar’s wife, sent to prison, forgotten by the butler, but finally got to his place of dream and glory.
In Genesis 22:1, God did tempt (test) Abraham. Delay is part of the test before the fulfilment. Temptation is part of the test, prison experience is part of the test, hunger is part of the test, life upheaval is part of the test, but understand that this period is what I call raw material time for a finished product. It will not be forever.
In Genesis 42:6, And Joseph was the governor over the land…. and Joseph’s brethren came and bowed themselves before him…
Take note, “the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” Don’t let mental blocks control you. The strong survives, but the courageous triumph. Regardless of how long it takes, the vision will speak. It spoke for Joseph, Abraham and Jacob, among others. Most assuredly, it will speak for you. God, Who promised you will not lie, as your vision will not be hijacked in Jesus name.
In conclusion, understand there are hijackers of vision. Both spiritual and physical hijackers. The devil, through his angels, principalities and powers can abort dreams or vision. There will be unnecessary delay, which can span years and you may not be able to understand why. Demonic people can hijack vision. Balaak hired Balaam to curse Israel vis-a-vis to stop their movement to the next level.
Some friends can stop your vision. David said “yea mine own familiar friend in whom I trusted; which did eat of my bread hath lifted up his hand against me” (Psalm 41:9). Nevertheless, run with it and you will fulfil it.
