The principle of vision is seeing through God’s eyes what he wants accomplished. Vision answers the “What?” question . What are we doing here? What is our business? What matters most to us? Nothing much will happen in our lives or our business other than the “ho-hum, same-ole-same-ole, business-as-usual” affairs until a vision has been defined and stated.
Robert Fritz was right when he said, “It is not what a vision is; it is what a vision does.” The Scriptures are right: “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Prov. 29:18 KJV).
Here are 4 reasons to have a compelling vision.
1. Vision brings people together so they can move forward.
2. Vision guides decisions.
3. Vision clarifies the significance of the present condition and the relevance of future alternatives.
4. Vision energizes.
A person or organization tires, but it never tires of pursing a dream. A vision is like the energizer bunny. It will enable you to keep going and going and going.
What’s your vision? How do you communicate your vision?
Recently I wrote a book on Psalm 23, Soul Therapy: The Healing Words of Psalm 23, that speaks to the heart, quiets your spirit, and eases loneliness. This psalm is a picture of contentment; it represents that mental state and physical place for which everyone longs. I share how Psalm 23 can comfort and empower your life.
