Vision – the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be
Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
I can see just fine (with glasses). The issue is when I can’t envision what’s next. That’s where I fall into a trap. In fact, that’s why I chose the above definition to describe vision. Because true vision has nothing to do with eyesight.
Where there is no vision, the people perish. Where there are no godly dreams or plans people fall prey. In other words, where there is no anticipation for God’s plan, the people fall to ruin. Where there is no desire for God’s plan, the people fail.
But, he that keeps the law, is happy. He that obeys God is happy. He that focuses on God is happy. He whose plan is God’s plan is happy.
So, we can perish, or we can be happy. It’s our choice. Where there is no anticipation for God at work, there is no hope for any good work.
He that chooses God’s vision, truly has vision.
The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.- Helen Keller
