1I will take my stand at my watchpost and station myself on the tower, and look out to see what he will say to me, and what I will answer concerning my complaint. 2And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.
Vision… It’s something that God has given to everyone but very few take advantage of. This why those who the church or society see as ‘visionaries’ are quick to obtain a large following. People need vision. They need to have something to take hold of that sets them on a course and gives them direction. Unfortunately, most people fail to put out the effort or take responsibility to obtain the vision the the Lord wants to give them for their lives. They’re content with sitting back and coasting through life allowing what God has for them to never come to fruition. If you were to ask them what their calling or assignment is they’ll almost 100% of the time tell you that they are ‘waiting on God’ to give it to them. The truth of the matter, according to today’s text, is that there is some personal action that needs to be taken before someone receives the vision that the Lord has for them. Read today’s scripture again and see how many times the Prophet uses the words ‘I’ and ‘my’. If you’re serious about receiving the vision and calling that the Lord has for your life, you must position yourself to receive it. Take your place and posture yourself to see what the Lord is saying to you. That position, in all likelihood, will start on your knees. Station yourself in an environment in which your focus and attention are directed to your Father. He is waiting on you to position yourself and show that you’re ready for Him to impart His plans and purposes into your heart. Start seeking Him through the the Word, worship, and prayer, then get your pen ready! – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
