“….I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision” (Acts 26:19).
The Heavenly Vision is a necessity for all the children of God. The divine vision which comes from God as well as the vision of doing as per the will of God are essential for us.
The people of the world place the visions of the earth in front. Their only vision is about their education, business and earning of money. So, they fix a target for their annual earnings and progress towards the same. But what the children of God require is the heavenly vision.
God called Paul the Apostle with His vision. The brightness of God's light shone on him suddenly when he was proceeding to torture the children of God in the street of Damascus. He fell down and God taught him through a vision all the things clearly which he had to do for Him. What was that vision? What was the aim of that vision?
God said, “....for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you” (Acts 26:16). Paul the Apostle immediately obeyed to that vision. He was prepared to face any hardship in fulfilling that vision.
Dear children of God, you need a vision. That vision is nothing but knowing God who called you. You also need a vision of yourself. It is essential for you to know through the vision, the identity of Christ within you, along with the authority, governance and power vested upon Christ. Further, the vision over the nation, vision over the lost souls and the vision over eternity are also essential for you. Only then you can move ahead.
Vision means 'A clear cut aim' or 'The huge responsibility given by God'. Do not waste your life by leading an aimless life.
You have to move ahead with the vision. Has He not promised to give you a vision? God says, “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions” (Joel 2:28). Dear children of God, move ahead with the vision.
To meditate:- “The God of glory appeared ….and said to him, ‘Get out of your country and from your relatives and come to a land that I will show you” (Acts 7:2, 3).
