SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR MAY 1, 2023 (UNDERSTANDING THE NECESSITY OF VISION )
TOPIC : UNDERSTANDING THE NECESSITY OF VISION
Scripture: And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. Genesis 13:14-15
Thought for The Day: If God will give it, man must first see it. If God will do it, man must see it.
You are welcome to the fifth month of the year, 2023. The year, 2023 has been prophetically declared with the theme: “Light Has Come; and the Glory is Risen”. In this Month of May, you shall experience a greater dimension of Light and risen Glory, in Jesus’ Name. It has been made abundantly clear that the most reasonable way to begin anything in life is beginning with God. Starting with God from the very beginning is the surest way to success in life. Genesis 1:1 says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Now, after God, the next most reasonable way to begin a thing in life is to have a vision. Vision is a critical necessity for the beginning of every meaningful thing in life and destiny. The question is: why is vision necessary? In our study today, we shall be looking at one necessity of vision. Divine Function happens at the frequency of human vision.
What man sees determines what God gives. From our anchor Scripture, it is evident that Divine Function happens at the frequency of human vision (Genesis 13:14-15) So, if God will give it, man must first see it. If God will do it, man must see it. Furthermore, in the journey of vision, it is most appropriate that one should start from spiritual vision before proceeding to material vision.
For example, before you can say you want to build a house for yourself, you should first think of what to do for the Kingdom of God (Matt. 6:33). You must seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness before you talk about doing other things for yourself. Beloved, the questions to ponder are: what do you want to become in God? What do you want to do with God? And what do you want God to do with you? Make up your mind to seek God and His Kingdom first, and all other things shall be added unto you.
Remember this: If God will give it, man must first see it. If God will do it, man must see it.
1. Refuse to live without vision. Ask God to give you a vision or rekindle your vision for living.
2. Place Kingdom vision above other visions of life.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me the necessity of vision. I receive the grace to both conceive and pursue Kingdom vision, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
