Vision | the Juice of Life!
Why do some people seem to overcome all obstacles in life while others can’t seem to get past second base?
Dr. Myles Monroe aptly answers that mysterious question with his powerful teaching on vision – the juice of life…
I’ve observed three kinds of people in the world.
First, there are those who never seem to be aware that things are happening around them.
Second, there are those who ask, “What just happened?”
Third, there are those who make things happen.
The percentage of people in the world who make things happen is so small that you just have to do a little extra to join them.
I have observed firsthand the truth of this statement: one person with vision is greater than the passive force of ninety-nine people who are merely interested in doing or becoming something.
Most people have an interest in their destinies, but they have no passion or drive to fulfill them.
They don’t really believe the dreams God has put in their hearts.
If they do believe them, they don’t do the things that will take them in the direction of fulfilling them. Yet that is what separates the people who make an impact in the world and those who just exist on the planet.
Have you discovered what your vision is?
Finding something you can put your whole self into will fill your life with new hope and purpose.
It will give you a reason for living.
My purpose has become my passion.
It wakes me up in the morning, and it keeps me going when I’m tired.
It is an antidote to depression.
It causes me to have joy in the midst of great opposition because I know that what God has given me to accomplish cannot be stopped by anyone.
When you discover your vision, it will give you energy and passion.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.” The vision in your heart is the spark that will make life work because you must pursue your dream with all your enthusiasm and strength, or it will not happen.
I believe that this Scripture expresses a truth that most people miss: you accomplish only what you fight for.
I believe this Scripture also implies that if you set your hands to do something, there will inevitably be resistance, opposition, and difficulties. Therefore, you have to apply pressure in order to fulfill your dream.
You must put your whole might behind it. Hard work and diligence are essential ingredients to success; therefore, you need an internal motivation to see the external manifestation of your dream.
That internal motivation is vision.
Vision will influence the way you conduct your entire life, such as what you spend your time and money on and what your priorities are.
Without vision, we have no values to guide our living.
Life has no sense of direction. Activity has no meaning. Time has no purpose. Resources have no application.
Vision is the juice of life.
It is the prerequisite for passion and the source of persistence. When you have vision, you know how to stay in the race and complete it.
