TOPIC: The Spell Of Visionlessness And Aimlessness
(Seeds Of Destiny Daily Devotional)
SCRIPTURE: And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon 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. Habakkuk 2:2-3.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A man without vision is at ease because he has no sense of urgency; and a man at ease is under a curse.
Our God is a God of vision and purpose; He created the heaven and the earth by the power of vision and purpose. There is a purpose for every creature He made on the earth; there is a purpose for man (Genesis 1:1, 28). There is a purpose for your life.
However, satan’s utmost desire is to make man not to become what God created him to be. One of his strategies of achieving this is to cast the spell of visionlessness or lack of vision on man.
Visionlessness is a situation where one does not know what to do with one’s life; a visionless person does not know in which direction to pour the energy of his life.
I would like you to take note of the following:
i) A life of no vision is a life of no future
Visionlessness equals futureless-ness; having no vision equals having no future. God told Abraham that as far as Abraham’s eyes could see, God would give unto him (Genesis 13:14); so, to see nothing is to get nothing. Your future is connected to your vision.
ii) The lack of vision equals the lack of a sense of urgency
When you see someone without vision, he has no sense of urgency. He is not in a hurry about anything; he may sit to watch television for hours aimlessly. A man without vision is at ease because he has no sense of urgency; and a man at ease is under a curse (Amos 6:1).
Beloved, my counsel is, avoid the spell of visionless and aimless existence by all means.
Remember this: A man without vision is at ease because he has no sense of urgency; and a man at ease is under a curse.
1. Avoid the spell of visionless-ness and aimlessness in life.
2. Ask God to show you why you are alive. Discover the reason for your existence and doggedly pursue it.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You deliver me from the spell of visionless-ness and aimlessness. Reveal to me Your purpose for my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
