THE PURSUIT OF VISION,
NEWTON’S first law of motion states that, a body will continue in its state of rest until a force is acted on it. The same goes for spiritual, your pursuit of vision is the force applied in wanting your vision to come to reality. Nothing will happen to a situation, desire, or vision that you do nothing about.
No matter how great a farmer’s dream for a prize winning harvest, if he would not take a farm land, secure implementations to clear the land, plough, hoe, ridge, and sow seeds of desired crops, his dream will have no proof at the end of the day. His fantastic vision will follow him to the grave if he does nothing about it. Vision without pursuit is mere wishes.
Yes, great is your vision, but equally great must be your drives, or your great vision will lead to great frustration. No reason should be strong for your inaction. Those who do nothing to their vision, groan at end. For every vision, there is provision. God will not reveal a plan without the resources to match. This is why I believe that every vision a man has received of the Lord, He has within Himself what it takes to accomplish it. God’s commandments are not grievous. He will not send a man on an impossible mission.
A man worth nothing except by virtue of what he has received from above. God makes the man because it is the gift of God in him that makes him. Proverb 18:16 A man’s gift makes room for him, and bringeth him before great men. When God calls, He endows you with what it takes to stand in that office. Remember Gideon, He called himself least of the least, but God said this is why I have chosen you so you don’t rely on your strength. Look unto Him and believe Him for His strength, and then His gift will go into operation to produce the needed results.
The grace of God is a free gift. It is unmerited favour from God. You don’t quality for it. God’s strength is made perfect in weakness. When you are weak in your own self, then you are strong in the Lord. In the calling of God and elections of God, your human qualification are your disqualifications, and your natural disqualifications are what qualify you. He chooses the base things, the weak things, those without reputation and He makes them
God is your qualification, without Him, you can do nothing. Battles are won by the grace of God. Feats are accomplished not by power nor by might, but by the spirit of God. Each time Samson fought and won, it was always preceding with the phrase, “and the spirit of God came upon him.” Samsom did not pay anything to get it. In fact, he did all he could to lose it through promiscuous living. All your strength is equal nothing without God.
If you must succeed, you must go along with Him. For you to be able to forge ahead, you have to be watchful not to stray from your calling, let your eyes be single and be steadfast in its pursuit. 2 Peter 1:10 says . . . give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
Be watchful to keep to your calling. Avoid distractions, keep your eyes fixed on your vision, neither deviates to the left nor to the right. Crown are exchangeable, so take heed lest another take your own.
Consistency is the mark of champions, EVERYONE that desires to win requires persistency. Challenges of life are many, but all that will dare to stand in spite of all odds will make it. Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until Joh: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
Anyone who must successfully pursue his vision must accept this part of the deal. Pressing is not often convenient-you will be squeezed, you will be roughened up, but that is a certain route for everyone who must win the prize. Pressing implies consistency. Many lose too cheaply because they quit too soon. The name of the game is consistency. That is your guarantee for triumph and excellence in the pursuit of your vision. Make Your Life Count,
