“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” –Proverbs 29:18
About 350 years ago, a shipload of travelers landed on the northeast coast of America. The first year they established a town site. The next year they elected a town government. The third year the town government planned to build a road five miles westward into the wilderness. In the fourth year the people tried to impeach their town government because they thought it was a waste of public funds to build a road five miles westward into a wilderness. Who needed to go there anyway?
Here were people who had the vision to see three thousand miles across an ocean and overcome great hardships to get there. But in just a few years, they were not able to see even five miles out of town. They had lost their pioneering vision. With a clear vision of what we can become in Christ, no ocean of difficulty is too great. Without it, we rarely move beyond our current boundaries.
Many of us have lost vision, or never had it to begin with. Vision keeps you from settling. Vision keeps you looking forward, not behind. God's will is an adventure, and those who lack spiritual vision will settle to stay in their current boundaries. Have a vision for your life. Get a spiritual vision for your children! Dream big things for God, and when you achieve them, keep dreaming.
