Proverbs 29:18 teaches us that where there is no vision, the people perish. Vision here means revelation from God. He is not talking about something that you thought up in your head. He is talking about being given revelation knowledge concerning a thing. Revelation knowledge is not rooted in habit or tradition, or religion. It is rooted in the Spirit of God, and we know that the Holy Spirit is our teacher who will guide us into all truth.
Vision precedes direction. We have a series coming out soon on the radio ministry that teaches on vision and direction. You have to get the vision from God before you know the direction that you are supposed to be going. See, and that’s the key. You are supposed to be headed somewhere . . . and that somewhere was preordained by God before the foundation of the earth. Your church should going somewhere based on the vision given by God to the pastor. Your relationship should be going somewhere based on the vision given by God to the husband (not the wife).
Seek God for His vision for your life and head in the direction in which He has called you to travel.
