What will take place this year?
I. Every heavenly vision begins at surrender, dedication and sacrifice.
Genesis 12:4 KJV “So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.”
Genesis 22:2-3 KJV “And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.”
Nehemiah 2:1 KJV “And it came to pass in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that wine was before him: and I took up the wine, and gave it unto the king. Now I had not been beforetime sad in his presence.”
Acts 26:19 KJV “Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:”
II. Heavenly plan is found in God’s Word, and in the Holy Ghost
Psalms 119:105 KJV “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
Romans 8:14 KJV “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
III. Without a vision – you’ll be guided by someone else’s vision.
Proverbs 29:18 KJV “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”
Ephesians 2:2 AMPC “In which at one time you walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God].”
IV. Expectation is faith
Proverbs 23:18 KJV “For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.”
V. Your vision is linked to help someone else fulfill their vision – This is Kingdom of God
VI. Walking in love and radical faith is needed to see the vision fulfilled
- Don’t be just a visionary, but combine it with action
Deuteronomy 11:13-15 KJV “And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.”
This is the year of the Holy Spirit, year of faith, year of the church and year of God’s heavenly plan fulfilled.
