VISION & VALUES I

HABAKKUK 2:2-3

“Write the vision And make it plain on tablets,

That he may run who reads it.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.

Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”

INSPIRATION VS MOTIVATION

    INTERNAL VS EXTERNAL

    PASSION VS DUTY

 INSPIRATION --  “IN SPIRIT”

    EPHESIANS 4 GIFTING TO DEVELOP LEADERS/MATURITY

 

SEE IT — SAY IT — DO IT

 

SEE IT

PROVERBS 29:19 Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law.

“MY REACH EXCEEDS MY GRASP”

VISION PUSHES US PAST THE LIMITS OF OUR OWN ABILITIES

PHILIPPIANS 3:12-14 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

VISION IS PARTNERING WITH GOD’S FUTURE

 

SAY IT

ROMANS 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God

“I AM WHO GOD SAYS I AM.”

HABAKKUK 2:2-3

“Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.

    YOUR LIFE CAN ACCELERATE THE LIFE OF OTHERS

    KINGDOM VISION REQUIRES

        TIME — RESOURCES — LIKE MINDED PEOPLE — GOD

 

 

DO IT

HABAKKUK 2:3

For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”

PATIENT BUT PERSISTENT

VISION IS AS MUCH TIMING AS SEEING AND SAYING

WHEN THE APPOINTED TIME DOES COME, IT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT YOUR EXPECTATION - MATTHEW HENRY

“(VISION) IS NOT WHERE WE ARE TRYING TO GO - WE CAN EASILY GET CONSENSUS ON THE GOAL. IT IS WHAT ARE WE WILLING TO LEAVE BEHIND TO GET THERE?” TD JAKES

 

HAVING A VISION FOR YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST WILL NOT MAKE ALL YOUR PROBLEMS DISAPPEAR, 

    BUT IT WILL GIVE YOUR LIFE PURPOSE. 

        AND WHEN YOUR LIFE HAS PURPOSE

            YOU CAN PUSH THROUGH ANY LEVEL OF PAIN.
