The scriptures on vision and direction are meant to drive you to your purpose in life. The problem is, we’re all too busy doing our thing to stop long enough to step back and assess where we are, what we’re doing and why.
What does the Bible say about your vision?
Vision is one of the most important gifts that we have been given. God has given us a vision, and it is up to us to ensure that we use it for His glory.
The Bible says that if you want to be fruitful in your life, you need to see what God has already done through others to be an encourager and a follower of Jesus. You need to see how He works in people’s lives, especially those who are less fortunate than you.
There are many times when we get caught up in our worlds and forget about others around us. We need to remember that God has given us this gift of vision so that we can help others discover His power and love through our eyes.
God had already seen every detail of your life before it happened. He knows what you are feeling right now because He created everything that exists. He knows all about the past, present, and future so that He can answer all your prayers instantly.
Scriptures on vision and direction.
Considering our place in eternity and our life’s purpose, we should be more concerned with vision and direction than possessions. The cost of our vision is eternal. But how do we develop a more straightforward path and vision for our lives? This cannot be easy sometimes, as many directions one can take within the Christian community.
2 Corinthians 4:18 – Looking onto the unseen.
As we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18
This Bible verse opens our understanding that things that are not seen might be mightier and better than the ones we see. It is true, according to the scripture, that the vision God has for us is of good and not evil; our physical eyes might not see it until we key into his vision and ask him for directions to know what he has for us. His blessings are indeed eternal because his thoughts for us remain forever.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 – Vision awaits its appointed time.
And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.” 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 2:2-3
Joel 2:28 – Vision and The Holy Spirit.
“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, and your young men shall see visions.”
In life, one doesn’t have to be visionless because, without vision, we can perish. This Bible verse shows us that God has us in mind and is always ready to lead us in spirit. He has promised to lead us into his realm by pouring his spirit on us so we can dream, prophecy, and see visions that will give us direction in every step we make.
Jeremiah 29:11 – Vision and God’s plan.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
From the beginning, God has always had a good plan for us; that is why he created everything for us to survive. His plans for us are always for good and not evil. He thinks about our future even when asleep. He protects us and gives us all that we want. He gives us direction in everything we do and a better end.
Proverbs 29:18 – Keeping the Law.
Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law.
In life, anyone with no vision about himself will not know his left or right. Vision will always give us direction and guide our steps in life. This scripture encourages us not to be visionless but should always make plans and see visions about our lives. Vision and directions help in keeping the law which brings lessons to our lives.
Amos 3:7 – Vision and Revelation.
“For the Lord God does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.”
In the old days, God did not do anything without revealing it to his servants like Abraham, Moses, David, etc. Even when God wanted to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, he revealed it to Abraham and Lot. He gave his servants the vision so that there would know what would happen.
1 John 4:1 – Testing vision through the knowledge of the Word of God.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1
As a child of God, you have to know every spirit of good and evil; when you are in tune with God’s vision, He lets you know the good and the bad through the knowledge of the Word of God.
Many false prophets are in the world to deceive God’s children, but a child of God that’s equipped with God’s vision and understanding with avoid them. A false prophet will always want to lead God’s children as
Acts 18:9 – Revelation through vision.
And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, “Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent
The Bible makes us understand that Paul was always persecuting Christ out of ignorance, but one day God put him in the right direction. God revealed to him in a vision when he started preaching the gospel that he should not be afraid of the people in authority.
God assured him of His protection and directions because he kept preaching and making His name known to the world.
Jeremiah 23:16 – Vision without Direction.
Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, filling you with vain hopes. They speak visions of their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord.
This scripture encourages us not to pay attention to a directionless vision of the fake prophets because they lead people astray. Most say God sends them, but they lie to get people’s attention. God shows us to pray for a vision and directions from him.
Numbers 12:6 – God reveals Himself through vision.
And he said, “Hear my words: If there is a prophet among you, I the Lord make myself known to him in a vision; I speak with him in a dream.
The Lord always revealed himself to Moses, and he passed the message to the Israelites, but Miriam and Aaron were jealous of him, which made God cause Miriam to have leprosy, and the cloud of God departed from them.
The Lord God continually reveals himself to his prophets in vision and dreams so he can pass the information to the children of God. He speaks to his servants about several issues and gives them instructions.
Daniel 7:13-14 – Daniel’s vision of trials.
“I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed.
God instructed Daniel to be prepared for a time of great trials and tribulations. As we look at the end times, we see that the same is true today. We are in a time of great persecution for believers in Jesus Christ. Many people do not understand what it means to be a believer in Christ or why we should continue to walk with Him. We also live in a time of great deception from Satan and his demons, who seek to destroy all God has created.
