If God has given you a vision, a word, direction, a passion for your life hold on tight to it and stay focused on Him. Do not allow the doubts of this world to steal a God given vision from you.

When life causes us to question if we should turn to the left or turn to the right- we must look up. 

As David says in Psalm 112:1 – 
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 

Too many times we become confused by options or lack there of, and lose our way. We must stay focused on remaining spirit lead. 

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Proverbs 29:18 AKJV

When we look too hard at our circumstances or rely on our ability to navigate the situation, we can become frustrated or hopeless. 

Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
Proverbs 13:12 – AKJV

Where God is there is hope. 
God reveals only what we need to know when we need to know it, as He did with Abraham, Moses, David, and many others. 

If God revealed too much too soon, it might seem more than we could bear. If He revealed any less, we might fall into despair and lose hope for deliverance. 

By faith we must walk and trust, according to God’s Word, knowing that He has the plan and the victory over our circumstances. 

God is our deliverer. He may bring our help through family, friends, strangers, or the unexpected – but it is all God. 

If we face a situation that appears unmovable we must turn our eyes upward and behold His mercies. 

The child we pray for, the illness we seek to be healed, the obstacles we must overcome, the enemy that plots evil against us are all in God’s hands and so is our victory. 

Never stop trusting God. He created the heaven and earth and all that resides in it. God is more than capable and willing to meet all of our needs. 

If we are given a vision for our life, we must walk it out in faith. We must not become discouraged by what our eyes fail to see. 

Vision is defined as the ability to think about or plan the future with [God’s] imagination or [God’s] wisdom.

If we know God’s Word and believe what is written then we must stand on what He has told us and move forward with expectation. 

If we find it impossible to believe God for His promises while we reside on this earth then how can we, with confidence, claim to believe Him for eternity. (John 3:16)

Paul said – (for we walk by faith, not by sight:) -in 2 Corinthians 5:7 AKJV, not as a suggestion but as a statement of fact. As a Christian, as a Christ follower, as a child of God we walk by faith, not by sight. We may not see it, yet, we do believe all that God has spoken. 

Stand on His Word, according to His will, and witness the power of God.
