Am I the only one who enjoyed going to the nurse’s office at school to do the mandatory eye exam? I’m sure I am not alone in my quest to prove at a young age that I had 20/20 vision. Although some students dreaded the yearly test, I welcomed it not only as a chance to get out of class, but to prove that I was a girl with great sight. Now, my job is to prove that I am a woman with great vision.
The small book of Habakkuk in the Bible packs a powerful punch as it relates to vision. In Habakkuk 1, the prophet is asking God a series of questions, but by Habakkuk 2:2-3 (NKJV), God is giving answers. “Then the Lord answered me and said, 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.”
There are three steps to casting vision in your life. First, you must write a vision for your life. Second, you must make the vision plain, meaning it must be clear and easy to understand. Third, the vision must be motivating, so that whoever is reading it can run with it.
Throughout my life, I have learned that having sight and having a vision are two very different things. Sight says that you can see things coming. Vision says you have a direction for where you are going.
Having vision can give direction to your life, and it can shift your life, but not having vision can ruin your life. Exercise patience because casting vision has a waiting period. Although it may tarry and you are not clear on God’s ETA, just remember; the Divine things in our lives happen ON TIME, not in OUR TIME.
