Seeds of Destiny 11 January 2018 by Pastor Paul Enenche: Biblical Examples of Men of Vision

Topic: Biblical Examples Of Men Of Vision [Seeds of Destiny Thursday January 11th, 2018]

Scripture: And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. Genesis 13:14-15.

Thought For The Day: To be dreamless is to be doomed.

From our previous studies, we saw the importance of vision in life. We saw that vision is what takes a person to where he is meant to be in life.

Today, we shall look at men of vision and how they ended.

There were men in the Bible and in our contemporary world who had vision and their vision took them to greater heights in life. A few examples of these men would make us pursue our vision for living:

1. Abraham

God told Abraham that He would give the land He saw to his descendants. God fulfilled His promise and gave the land of Canaan to the children of Israel, the descendants of Abraham because he (Abraham) saw it.

2. Joseph

In Genesis Chapter 37, Joseph saw himself as the leader of his brothers. Though it took him thirteen years to actualise that vision, it eventually came to pass when he became a leader in Egypt. The dreams of today are the realities of tomorrow. To be dreamless is to be doomed.

3. David

He had a vision of bringing down Goliath and the vision came to pass (1 Samuel 17: 49-50)

4. Moses

Moses had a vision of delivering his people from the bondage of Egypt. Even though he failed at his first attempt, the vision eventually came to pass when God stepped in (Exodus 12:40).

Beloved, endeavour to follow the practical steps of these great men of God by conceiving a vision for your life.

Remember This: To be dreamless is to be doomed.

Assignments:

1. Take a closer study of the lives of Abraham, Joseph, David and Moses.

2. Practice what you learn from their lives.

Prayer: O Lord, give me the grace to walk with You like the Patriarchs. Do with me Lord, what You created me for, in Jesus’ Name.

Amazing Fact: We have the same amount of hairs on our body as a chimpanzee. Most are useless and so fine that they are invisible.
