Scripture Text: “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end, it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” - Habakkuk 2:2-3.

Vision is the unfolding of God's plan for your life. It is the source and hope of life. The greatest gift given to mankind is not a gift of sight, if you may know, but a gift of vision

This is because sight is a function of the eyes, whereas vision is an ultimate function of the heart, the Eyes of the spirit. 

Sight vs Vision

The eyes that look are common, but the Eyes that see are rare.

On a more serious note. Nothing noble or noteworthy on Earth was ever done without a vision. 

So, vision is the greatest of all gift. No invention, development, or great feat was ever accomplished without the inspiring power of this mysterious source which we call vision. 

"Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life" -Proverbs 4:23

  • You are born to achieve something very significant. And you were also destined to make a difference in your generation. You were not born to be ordinary. 

Perhaps you may be born an ordinary person but your maker predestined you for the extraordinary life. Your life is not a divine experiment.

  •  You are not a guinea pig, rather, your life is a project of providence for the fulfillment of a purpose that your generation needs.

Vision: The Pathway To Your Purpose

There is something God has put inside of you, you must discover only through Him. So this personal purpose is the source of your vision. 

And every vision always recalls the plan and purpose of God for that person, and it gives meaning to your life. 

  • Therefore only the discovery of the purpose of what God puts in your mind gives your life meaning. 

Consequently, the scripture in affirmation says, " But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him".- 1 Cor. 2:9

So, child of God, the Almighty God, our Father, has packaged in you a product to fulfill a preordained course in your generation. And so it is with every one of us, all believers in the finished works of Christ have been created or predestined for a purposeful placement. 

Designed For Greater Vision

That means you have been custom-made and designed to affect your world. 

And what you need to affect your world has been placed within you. You only need to see through God what he has designed you to be. And all you can do is discover it.

 And God has not left you on an indefinite adventure for a tireless search, but rather he is willing to unfold everything he has purposed you to be in life. "But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God."-1 Corinthians 

 He reveals all things to us by his spirit. That's why everyone that is born again will see the kingdom life.

The Redeemed Access The Vision Of God

 "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." - John 3:3 

  • You cannot see the kingdom as an unbeliever. That is, in other words, you cannot see the manifestation, the realities of your life until you are born of God. 
  • God is willing to reveal everything to you. He wants you to be what he has planned for you to be. So vision is therefore your ability to see from God's perspective. Vision is revealed within you. It is not a function of the physical eye. 

" But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord."- 2 Corinthians 3:18 

vision is God's plan for you,  it is the picture of a preferred future and purpose is knowing God's intended plan. But vision is the gradual unfolding of the path to fulfilling your ordained purpose. 

 You cannot fulfill purpose without understanding vision. Let us learn from an encounter of Jeremiah with God,   "Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree.

Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it."- Jeremiah 1:11-12 

You Discover It By Revelation

You can discover God's vision for your life through His word, that is the Holy Bible, the says,  "And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:" -Isaiah 29:11

 When Jeremiah was able to capture the vision of God, then God went ahead to make his purpose in life a reality by making His Will happen.

  • You need to be able to see from God's eye His will for your life before you can begin to pursue a definite course or purpose. This is because before you were preconceived, god already had a plan for your life, it predates your birth. 

And God's vision gives you a unique placement in life among all other things. It gives you a life of meaning. When you discover God's vision for your life, you will forever be transformed because you become more energized and excited to live each day of your life. 

Discovering your place in destiny is what steers your life. Because in Him we live, we move, and have our being. And outside of Him is darkness. But In him is light. Light is vision. 

Vision is being able to see through his eyes, the word, " I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye."- Psalms 32:8

 I pray that the Lord will open your eyes so that you can see his purpose, for which you are made. Everything you see today; all great accomplishments, started as an idea because people could conceive within their mind's eye. 

 That's exactly what the wisest man in the Book of Scriptures cautioned the saints about, "Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life." - Proverbs 4:23 

We're not talking about the eyes of man, we're talking about the spirit's Eye.

Also, let us hear this, " Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us," - Ephesians 3:20

  • The eyes of the inner man can see Father. 

 The scripture says God has revealed all things by His spirit to them that believe. And the spirit of God searches out all things. even the deep things of God.

  •  You are not trying to see with the man's eye here. 
Instead, you want to conceive the plan of God. And it is only possible by Faith in Him and His finished work in Christ. "For we walk by faith, not by sight" - 2 Corinthians 5:7 

Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard. It has not entered the heart of man. Only the Eyes of man. That is the regenerated man which is within ( the spirit man). 

  • Only the true man can pick the signals of the plan and purples of God. 

And that is why you must be born again if you want to accomplish the purpose and plan of God for your life, and for Him to guide you through His pathways to your glorious destiny.


1. Father, IJN: Thank you for giving me a purposeful life before I was born to my earthly family. Amen. 

2. Father, IJN: I ask that you always show me the part of life and the way to go all the days of my being here on the earth. 

3. Father, IJN: Inspire me and give me knowledge on the eminent problems attacking life and humanity and the solutions to them
