2022 IS OUR YEAR OF FULL RESTORATION. Acts 3:21
May 2022 is Our is Month of Full Restoration by VISION. Jer 1:11-12
Jer 1:11-12 “Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah (Put Your Name there), what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”
In Proverbs 29:18, it is written, “Where there is no vision, the people perish:”
Until You discover God’s Vision for your life, you are not yet alive as a child of God!
Nothing destroys like lack of Vision! When you lack Vision, you lose every provision God has for you because God’s provision is for His Given-Vision. And when you lack God’s provision, you cannot live the most blessed life. On the other hand, when you discover God’s Vision for your life and you follow His Leading, life becomes Heaven on earth as God becomes your funder!
VISION AND THE CHURCH
Many in the church have no vision at all. For some, Vision has become blurred. For others, their Vision appears far-fetched, almost impossible to become a reality because of many challenges.
Israel faced this kind of situation until they began to say “EVERY VISION FAILS!”
What did Lord God say then? “And the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, what is this proverb that you people have about the land of Israel, which says, ‘The days are prolonged, and every vision fails’? Tell them therefore, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “I will lay this proverb to rest, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel.” But say to them, “The days are at hand, and the fulfillment of every vision. For no more shall there be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel. For I am the LORD. I speak, and the word which I speak will come to pass; it will no more be postponed; for in your days, O rebellious house, I will say the word and perform it,” says the Lord GOD.'” Again, the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, look, the house of Israel is saying, ‘The vision that he sees is for many days from now, and he prophesies of times far off.’ Therefore, say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “None of My words will be postponed any more, but the word which I speak will be done,” says the Lord GOD.'” Ezekiel 12:21-28
WHAT IS VISION? Vision is
- The ability to see.
- A Mental picture: an image or concept in the imagination.
- Something seen in dream or trance: an image or series of images seen in a dream or trance.
- A supernatural presentation of certain scenery or circumstances to the mind of a person either while awake or asleep.
- Far-sightedness: the ability to anticipate possible future events and developments
A valid Vision from the Lord is the principal requirement to live and fulfill your purpose.
In Jeremiah 1:11-12, God asks Jeremiah “What do you see?” And Jeremiah responded: “I see the branch of an almond tree!” And the Lord said You have seen well.
If the asks you What do you see? What will be your answer? Can you tell the Lord what You see? This is important because God is not committed to you beyond what You see!
What Do You See? What is Your Vision?
In Genesis 13:14-18, It is written, “And the LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are-northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered. Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you. Then Abram moved his tent, and went and dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and built an altar there to the LORD.”
Beloved, What Do You See? God wants to hear Your response. What Jeremiah and Abram saw God did for them. He will do the same for you.
What Do You See? What is His Vision for You?
If you have not seen His Vision for Your life, Seek His face until you find it. And when you find it, prepare and run with it. If you already know His Vision for your life, declare it and run with it.
Like Jeremiah, I can boldly say, “I see Myself AS the Branch of the True Vine. I see Myself AS Christ’s Ambassador. I see My Full Restoration and Fruitfulness as the Branch of the True Vine. I see Myself Made to Flourish like the True Vine. I see Jesus RESTORE You and Me in every area to function like Him NOW!”
May The Lord open your eyes to see His Vision for your life this month, if you have not, in Jesus Precious Name.
Welcome to the Month of May 2022, Our Month of Full Restoration by Vision.
It is well. Enjoy Grace and Glory!
Yours in Christ,
