Proverbs 29:18 "Where there is no vision, the people perish; but he that keepeth the Law, happy is he."
We all know that it is Biblical to have a vision. This is a good concept that applies in so many ways. In order to be successful in any undertaking, one must have a vision. If we don't know what the destination is, how will we get anywhere? If we don't know what the goal is, how will we ever measure success? This applies in all areas of life. Every company, big or small, has a vision. Often times success hinges on that vision itself. Sometimes the vision is just too big and broad to truly be useful. For example "Sales will be through the roof". What can you get from that statement? What defines "through the roof". Is that more sales than last year? What will define success? Your vision must be clear. It also should be simple. I listened to a sermon preached by Pastor Todd Bell on Habakkuk 2:2. "And the LORD answered me and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it." You should make the vision "plain" or simple. Don't make some convoluted vision that would take a PHD to understand. Simple.
What goals do you have for 2010? How many people will you witness to this year? This month? This week? How will you serve the Lord this year? How will you be a blessing to others in your church body this year?
We are now 7 days into the new year. It is time to "write the vision".
