Capture the Vision

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
(Romans 1:16,17 ESV)

“I will take my stand at my watch post and station myself on the tower, and look out to see what he will say to me, and what I will answer concerning my complaint”. (Habakkuk 2:1)

Is there a complaint, a cry rising up within you because you do not truly know who God designed you to be in this world in representing His Kingdom? Maybe you don’t know even “if” let alone “where” you belong. Let me assure you that in the Father’s house there “is” a place for you. You are chosen and not ever forsaken. Jesus has prepared a place for you “of many rooms” in comparison to where the level of human reasoning can leave you stuck. Look at John 14:1-3 for example.

Many of us are likely living far below the capacity God has already placed within us to be. Are you hearing a call to come up higher?

In order to be in right standing in the Kingdom of God, one must living “by His faith” based in the power of the gospel. Can you declare “I believe”? Is “that believing” producing in you a passion to so clearly see Jesus so that you can perhaps begin to see an outline for walking out your specific purpose in fulfillment of “why you are here” on earth?

You don’t need to be running here and there in frantic search for on-purpose living that which if you are actually engaged in, can take you aside from where you actually need to be.

The Lord would say now, “step out onto the water”. Take His hand extended. Watch the current though. You must become very specifically “current” in a “very current” God who also holds the blueprint for the tributary of the stream of the river He has destined for you to flow in. May I say unto you there is but one river of God however that river has its tributaries that distribute and carry it’s flow. Are you properly positioned in alignment? He knows the plans that are held in store for you. They are plans to prosper you and to not bring you into a place that will bring harm. Don’t be caught up into diverse distracting currents which can make it very hard to get back on track.

Please have a seat in Jesus’ name and still yourself for a moment. What is the “vision” God has given you? You are not to leave that to happenstance. He wants you to clearly see it. He wants you to be fully in understanding and deeply immersed in it. Maybe you have no clue what to do. That is okay. There is remedy for such.

And the Lord is waiting answer to you. It is time to settle the questioning and to dispel the doubts and fears and “before” you take another step, He would have you to consider the following;

“Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.
(Habakkuk 2:2) Allow Him the process to “show you”. Write it down and I mean literally write it out. You can give yourself a kaleidoscope unfolding picture of what you write out and “soak in” what God is saying. If the vision is not fully “in you” then you will not be able to have it manifest. It remains simply a mere idea. The vision is something you must be able to “become” with what God’s resource deposited within you.

Then you must be able to articulate into words “which move and stir you” into action and your action draws those to you who God has prepared to be part of the process. We live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God; not by mere physical tangible substance. Allow the living Word of God to come alive in you. “His personal word to comes out of the “logos” and is breathed into the “rhema” which is His Word “alive in you”

“Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6). It is not by your own means, power or strength. Allow God to release in you “that” which only He can. Do not look to other people. He will direct you to connect with the “right people” in “His timing”.

For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end; it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. (Habakkuk 2:3). In other words simply put, you will not be waiting for very long. God is always in motion and He intends for you to be in His express image and to reflect that which is characteristic of Him.

You have an appointed time from God to walk out what He holds for you placed into action in His plan. Don’t waste it. Be discerning and then be diligent.

“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is”.
(Ephesians 5:15-17 NKJV)

“The Veil was Torn”

There was a moment in history when darkness was held in a pause.
Death seemed to have claimed its victory as the King of love had given up His life
on what was the darkest moment in history.

Placed upon on a cross they designed for sinners,
The Saviour of the world bore every curse for which His blood atoned.
In One final breath and He declared that it was finished
The end no one could have fathomed or known.

Then the earth began to shake, and the veil was torn in two for me and you.
What a sacrifice He did afford, as the heavens roared
In three days time in victory, He came forth.
Eternity was crossed for evermore.

King Jesus, all hail the Lord of heaven and earth!
The Savior of the world brought Heaven down,
All works declare His name and earth, sky and sea resound.
For all of eternity the Three in One, in blessed Trinity,
Bridges forever the gap spanning all Eternity.

There remains no longer a veil but the one conceived in mind.
It is only unbelief in God’s grand design, that renders one blind.
And veils the eye of sinful man from God’s glory divine.
No longer may it to man resign.

May we we all, with unveiled face, behold the glory of the Lord,
Being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another,
Forever transformed. (2 Corinthians 3:18)

For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. So be not veiled any more.

Through the eyes of faith, my prayer be, that all see once more.

May there arise in these last days men and women of good repute, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, who will give themselves and devote to prayer and to the ministry of the Word as they in their divine story walk out life as God designed.
Right where life is daily done in marketplace and square, the glory of his handiwork may it be declared everywhere.

A dream and a hope designed by God, birthed into His sons and daughters, even as by the Spirit of the Lord, the Word of God continues to increase everywhere from all four corners of the earth, may now it unfold as already begun.

As it is to be regarded that as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful. Be full of faith; filled with faith; wherein no veil no longer remains. As God is forever faithful, may the same be known of you and I from this moment forward, forever more.
