We started this year as a church talking about VISION. And we are going to continue talking about Vision for the next few weeks.
Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no Vision, The People perish.”
Simply put you and I were created to LIVE with a vision in our heart. When we live with focus and Vision we thrive, but when we live to just survive we perish. The word perish means to suffer death, typically in a violent, sudden, or untimely way, to suffer complete ruin or destruction
Have you ever been in pure survival mode? Life has a way of beating you up sometimes and all you can do is stand, take it, and survive! I’m a survivor. I’ve been through a lot in this life. Lose, death, struggle, poor, lost, alone, etc… but through it all I vowed to survive. But I realized something at the end of this year…
God doesn’t want me surviving, He wants me thriving!
I can survive all day long, but it’s God’s vision that He has given me that compels me to thrive and strive to see the vision become a reality. And this is what brings glory and honor to our creator God. Living as we were created to live is our way of bringing glory to God!
You and I were created to live with and strive toward vision, and not just any old vision. Not a vision that you think would be great, but a vision God says will be great.
A Vision From The Lord, Creates a Mission From Heaven!
So there you have it… this is why we are going to spend some time on vision.
You need a vision!
If you don’t have one for your life, your marriage, your finances, your career, it’s time to get one. And if you have one, but it’s something YOU decided without God’s input, it’s time to bring Him into the mix and seek God for His vision for Your life.
Join us this Sunday at One Community Church as we begin to put some flesh on this thing we are calling Vision 2016.
