WESDNESDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2018
THEME: THE POWER OF VISION
TEXT: GENESIS 15:1-6
MEMORY VERSE: GENESIS 15:5 “Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them. And He said to him so shall your descendants be”. Eyes that look are common, but eyes that see are rare,” so says Myles Munroe.
Vision is a mental picture of where you wish to be in future. As God was talking to Abraham, He wanted him to envision his future not minding where he was at that time. At the time he was called, Abraham had virtually almost lost all hope of giving birth to a child (Genesis 15:1-3). God brought Abraham outside and asked him to look toward heaven and count the stars (Genesis 15:5). In other words, God wanted him to envision his future with many descendants.
The following will help you actualize your vision:
1. Faith in God (Genesis 15:6, Hebrews 11:6)
2. Maintaining a good relationship with God. (Genesis 15:1)
3. Always looking towards heaven (Genesis 15:5, Psalm 121:1-2) because He is the Chief Promoter of People who labour diligently.
No one can succeed in life without an adequate vision for his/her life. Vision is a function of what you can see, so see right (well) so that God will bring the vision to fruition. (Jeremiah 1:11-12). See yourself at the top and work and pray towards it..
HYMN: EMHB 256 -THERE’S A LIGHT UPON THE MOUNTAIN
PRAYER: Dear Lord, open my eyes and let me run carefully and steadily with the vision You have given me.
