The Power of a Vision
February 1, 2017 • By Joneen Horton
My last few blog posts discussed creating a vision board. Have you started yours yet? I placed my vision board on the wall next to my bed; as soon as I open my eyes I can see it…then after I grab my glasses, I can actually read it.J
The first thing I have noticed is that my sons will come into my room to stare at my vision board. My three year old points out the people he recognizes, and my six year old reads the words aloud. This was important to me because of what Habakkuk 2:2 says: "…Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by."
Lesson one: Those who love and support you will run with the vision. Praise God!
After a few days of studying my vision board, I looked at it and said: "faith without works is dead." (See James 22:17-24) I had put off a lot of things that I needed to do in order to walk in the promises God has given. The children of Israel had Canaan when God promised it to them, yet they had to go in and take possession of that Promised Land.
Lesson two: Do something. Seek God and move in accordance. What's the last instruction He gave you? The promise has been made, go and take it.
My sons had to write down three goals for the month of June (summer homeschooling). I asked where they wanted to put them so they could see them. They answered;" by our beds so we can see them when we wake up". Hallelujah! I never told them that's why I put my vision board where I did; "…for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 6:17, KJV)
Lesson three: Childlike faith is what God wants from us. God has blessed me with two little faith power houses to help me remember that.
Here's my Vision Board:
