TESTIMONIES AND THANKSGIVING SERVICE – 25TH AUGUST 2019
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): HABAKKUK 2:1-4
MESSAGE TOPIC: THE PROFIT OF VISION
BY: DR. PAUL ENENCHE
SERVICE OBJECTIVE: Understanding the profitability/dividends/benefits of the life of vision
Vision is insight into God’s plan for a person’s life
Every Kingdom principle is connected to Kingdom products
THE PROFIT OF VISION:
1. Vision is the guarantee of the future (Gen. 37:5-9; 41:39-44)
The vision of today is the reality of tomorrow
If the devil cannot prevent you from seeing the future today, he cannot stop you from reaching that future tomorrow
It doesn’t matter what is around your life today, don’t face your situation, face your destination, because your destination is where you are going
2. Vision guarantees possession (Gen. 13:14-15)
What man sees determines what God gives; what is not in your heart cannot be put in your hands
What you see coming must come
Be careful what you see ahead, bad or good, it must happen!
Empty-handedness in life, most times, emanates from empty-heartedness
3. Vision releases inner strength and capacity to surmount the immediate (Heb. 12:2)
Men and women of vision are ‘fightful’ people; you can’t stop them, stand them or do anything about them
Vision makes you a runner; there is a drive inside you that makes it impossible for you to be wearied!
4. Vision releases joy and hope against depressing issues of the moment (Heb. 12:2)
As you focus on vision, on what God has said to you and focus on the convictions on your heart, there is a joy released that destroy the frustrations of the moment
“The happiest people are those who celebrate the future. The present will always create some concerns but the future is your picture. It is as you see it that you find it”. – Bishop David Oyedepo
5. Vision brings order and structure to life (Prov. 29:18KJV, NLT)
Where life is without vision, it is without structure; it is disordered and disorganised
Anyone who has more time than work is battling with vision deficiency
Time becomes a burden where life lacks bearing
6. Vision brings wisdom and insight into life (Matt. 6:22)
People of vision are people of light and wisdom
A lot of Divine ideas happen for people who have vision and focus
The reason why people don’t leave where they are is because they don’t know where they are going; if you know where you are going, God will supply you with what to do to get there
7. Vision imparts vitality and longevity to life (Prov. 29:18)
Where there is no vision, the people perish; where there is vision, the people flourish (Prov. 29:18)
There are people who die out of satanic wickedness but there are those that die because they have no reason to remain alive
If you have a reason to be on the earth, no power can take you out before your time
Vision is what gives you the reason to be here
1. Ensure that you live the life of vision (Hab. 2:1)
Don’t leave your life to chance; live with vision
2. Run with the vision (Hab. 2:2)
Pursue the vision; give it all you have got
3. Wait for it if it tarries, it shall surely come (Hab. 2:3)
Pursue the vision; give it all you have got (Phil. 4:8)
Father, I come before You today. I am not looking for my own plans for my life, I am looking for Your plan for my life; let it come to pass Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
GOD’S WORD TO YOU TODAY:
‘Cast all your cares upon Me and trust Me to handle your fears. I have the ability to handle what you can’t handle. I see what you can’t see and know what you don’t know if you will trust Me and allow Me and give Me the right of way, I will bring to pass My Perfect Plan for your life and the enemy will never have his way in your life.’
‘A phase is ended; a chapter is finished. You are at the junction of another phase of your life. Trust Me to guide you to the next phase. Don’t lean on your own understanding, Put your hands in My Hands and there will be no occasion for you to stumble. What is ahead is bigger, brighter and better than what is behind you’
‘I am not going to give you all the details at once. I will lead you one step at a time. If you will trust Me, it will be a phase at a time and a season at a time’.
