Wellness Tip: (Emotional/Spiritual) Vision Leads To Victory
Recently, I learned about three types of vision from Jentezen Franklin. He talked about an upward vision, and inward vision, and an outward vision. An upward vision is when you begin to understand who God is. An inward vision is when you begin to understand who you are in God. An outward vision is when you begin to understand why you are here and what your purpose is.
In reading Acts 26:12-29 the apostle Paul had a vision on the road to Damascus. That vision, according to John Maxwell, allowed Paul to accomplish five things:
1) It stopped him (vs.12-15). Vision allows us to see ourselves. We see things not as they are, but as we are.
2) It sent him (vs. 16-18). Vision allows us to see others. We feel compelled to act.
3) It strengthened him (vs. 20-23). Vision enables us to continue despite struggle and lack of resources.
4) It stretched him (vs. 24-29). Vision gave him conviction to stand, confidence to speak, and compassion to share.
5) It satisfied him (vs. 19). Obedience to this vision motivated Paul to act. It fulfilled him.
What is your vision? For what purpose were you placed on earth? I am so passionate about this that I wrote an entire workbook to help you discover that vision and purpose for your own life and it’s now available. Click here for your own copy today!
