Every Vision Matters
“For generations the focus within the four walls of the church has been on one person’s vision. That person was the one in the pulpit. Their vision was exalted above everyone else’s vision. The congregation existed to serve the vision of the head. Many within the church have been given a vision by the Lord. The vision that they have is one part of a divine plan to see Christ’s kingdom on display in the earth. What if everyone in the church was doing their God given dream? What would happen in your city if each believer was accomplishing the vision the Lord gave them?” (Ken Malone)1
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you… This is written to all believers. Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. And these signs will accompany those who have believed.” (Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:15 and 17; NKJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
If you have been in a leadership role and demanded that congregants or staff and associates only go where you are going, repent.
If you are one who has had their vision shut down by a leader who believed that only the vision of the head should be accomplished, forgive.
Do you know what your God-given vision is? If so, ask God how to step out and pursue it, even if leadership is not okay with you doing so.
Some in the Body of Christ are called to help carry another’s vision. If that’s you, do so with your whole heart! The Lord will bless you richly as you serve.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, I repent for believing that only a senior leader’s vision matters. I forgive those who may have been in leadership and blocked me from moving forward to advance Your Kingdom, instead of helping me do so. Forgive me when I have limited You due to my limiting mindset. Change it, Lord! Sharpen my vision and grant me boldness to accomplish it as You start to open those supernatural doors ahead of me. My city, state and nation are about to change! Lead and guide and direct me, Jesus. Amen.
Every Believer’s vision that was given by God to them is critical to the advancement of God’s Kingdom and I will help make that a reality.
