Topic: RUNNING WITH THE VISION
Scriptures: Proverbs 29:18, Daniel 10:7-11, Matthew 19:16-22
“And the Lord answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth ‘it’. Habakkuk 2:2.
Vision is a move or revival in every move of God, there is a destination.
ACCESSING THE PATHWAY TO RUNNING THE VISION:
• You must know why you are called:
To Peter Jesus said He will make him fisher of men, and He also gave Peter a name———To Moses, a god to Pharoah. Jeremiah was the battle axe placement in the body of Christ, so you can run with the vision.Run the vision as a participant, not as a spectator. The disciples of Jesus were called salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13). As salt, your life should give taste and make things good. To Joseph, he was a dreamer and interpreter of dreams (Genesis 41:39-45).
• Be a Servant:
Servant-hood attracts anointing (Isaiah 42:1-2). Servants are always uphold by God. ‘Yes Sir’ is the response of a servant. One would be far from backsliding, because it is God who upholds him, and not by one’s strength.
• Drop every reputation about yourself:
whether fake or real or borrowed. When this is dropped, humility helps you to be teachable. Teach ability further enhances submission to the teaching of your church. Thus, this helps you to grow into maturity.
• Be at your duty post:
Revelation does not come always, you get revelation from God, when you are at your duty post (Habakkuk 2:1). Be proactive at your duty post. Never be absent there!
• Choose a good companion:
The companion you keep in church can make or mar you. Get a complain who see and runs with the vision of your church. Bad friends can throw you into bankruptcy of wisdom. Wrong companions never nourish.
• Make use of every good thing in you.
Express your strength. Grow with and live by it that is what makes you different and unique. Run the vision with it.
• Protect what makes you different from others.
David had a sling-shot. His sling shot was used for God in an amazing way.
• Be careful of what enters your ears:
What you hear determines what you feel. It also determines what you fear (Deuteronomy 13:11).
• Take Personal Responsibility:
watch yourself. Be the gate keeper of your eyes, ears and heart. Yield yourself to God. Know that distraction can weaken your capacity to rub with the vision.
Lord keep me on track, let me not be a stumbling block to the speed of the kingdom.
