Vision: The Father of Restraint by Marc Brisebois

Where there is no vision the people perish (Proverbs 29:18)The New International Version shares this verse a little differently saying, ‘Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint’. Vision is the father of restraint. It gives one the power to bring under control the usual need for short-term gratification. The one able to see the end from the beginning can endure far more than the one who lives in the moment. This is of particular importance as it pertains to trials. When we lack v … [Read more...]

Turning Dreams into Reality by Robert Ricciardelli

Everybody can dream from time to time but inspired vision can take those dreams and birth them into reality. The visionary can see what is invisible to others, believe what is possible, when others say it is impossible, and have faith in knowing that their very existence is in harmony with what they know they must do. They become empowered to articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and faithfully carry their vision to completion. Courageous vision carriers have the ability to turn … [Read more...]

Heaven’s Agenda by Calvin Tibbs

When Christ’s agenda takes center stage in our hearts, we will take off the robes we’ve dawned, put down the gavel in our hand, find a chair without a bench and start loving each other.  The world’s operating system loves a spectacle, and routinely excludes God’s view in their reporting. They opt instead for the ever-increasing Tell-Us-What-You-Think questions. Frankly, outside of the mind of Christ, our thinking is sadly lacking. The high court of our personal opinion flows all too freely and th … [Read more...]

Of course the answers typically expected are numeric in nature or involve a desired effect.Many expect that a vision must reach ‘such and such’ a number or cause ‘this or that’ effect. The question in and of itself is not a bad one, but often stems from misguided motivat … [Read more...]
