Your Vision: Your Destiny – By David Ibiyeomie

Eph. 5:1 – Be ye therefore imitators of God, as beloved children; {ASV}

If God had the globe in mind from the beginning, it is expected that you don’t see small picture in anything you are doing in life. God started small but did not think small. There is nothing wrong with starting small but it becomes an anathema when you remain small.

The world is ruled by visionaries. Vision in this context is to see ahead. It is the act of seeing things that are invisible. It means having a global picture of your defined goals, dreams and objectives from the onset.

Joel 2:7-8 – They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march everyone on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk everyone in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.

You don’t use another man’s leg to run your race and nobody is a threat to your carrier. There are too many stars in the sky; yet, no one is overshadowing the other.

Have you not heard that you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood and an holy nation. Here, God did not call you a person but a nation. If you die a local person, you are a disappointment to the body of Christ.

When God was talking to Rebeca and the twins in her womb {i.e Esau and Jacob}, He referred to them as nations in Gen. 25:23. Therefore, you are a nation and God brought you from darkness so that you can be a marvel to your world.

A baby Elephant does not need to pray to be big because it has all the attributes that will make it big. Therefore, If God is your father, then behave like God; where you are is too small.

Luke 17:21 -Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

As a child of God, everything in God is inside you; if you are a failure, then you are a disappointment to God. The kingdom of God is inside you. You have so much inside you waiting to be revealed. Some believers might look poor on the outside but if you can see what is on the inside, you will be amazed. All you need to do is to discover what is on your inside. Whatever is inside you will be revealed as you read this blog in the name of Jesus!

Visionaries are pace-setters; they pave the way for others to follow. You are the light of the world; a city that is set on a hill that cannot be hidden. Without a picture of your future, you will not have a glorious future. It is the discovery of what is on your inside and the pursuit of it that guarantees a glorious future.

Rom.8:29-30 -For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

God did not call you unto shame; He called you for glorification. You are meant to reign and not roam on earth. No matter the country you live or come from, if you can discover and pursue what is on your inside, you will be great.

A woman in 2Kings 4:1-7 was asked what she had in her house, she said nothing except a bottle of oil and that was what brought her out of poverty. God will not use something outside you to lift you. It is one thing you have on your inside that God will use to change your story.

There is something inside you; all you need to do is to discover it. It is its discovery that God will use to announce you to your world. One single vote has power to make a difference. Do not neglect that one thing in you because it has power to turn your life around. In 1645, one vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England. In 1776, one vote gave America English language instead of German language. In 1845, one vote brought the state of Texas into the union. In 1868, one vote saved President Andrew Johnson from impeachment. In 1875, one vote changed France from a Monarch to a Republic. That one thing in you is powerful. There is something have that you are neglecting.

Vision is to see farther than your physical eyes can see. Vision is one of the greatest gift God gave to man. Visionaries don’t look; they see. People with vision see money in every problem. The best time to exist is now because the world has too many problems that need to be solved and visionaries are the ones who rule the world.

Your vision determines your destiny. It is the mental picture of your future. Vision is simply seeing future before it comes into being. To live a successful life requires pursuing your vision with a revolutionary mindset and a visionary can never be intimidated.

School does not make people; it is learning that makes people because learning is a lifetime. The world is ruled by those who learn every day; not by those who just went to school. If you can see that it is possible and believe that it can be done, you will do the impossible.

Mark 9:23 – Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Until you dare to be different, you cannot make any difference.

Prov. 29:18a – Where there is no vision, the people perish:…

The word perish is the above scripture means to be stripped off of honour and dignity. So, to be without vision is to be doomed in life. From today, start seeing from your mind; stop having that local picture. You can start from your local environment but see the whole world. Where you start from does not matter; what matters is what you see.

To become a visionary, you must get back and be connected to your source. Until you return back to God, your best will not come out because God is your source. Except you return back to your source, you will lack satisfaction here on earth. Your potential cannot be fully maximized until you return to your source which is God.

God bless you
