Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained. - Proverbs 29:18 NAS
The opposite of this verse could be that where there is a vision, people will be focused on their goal.
Sometimes on vacations I would have very few goals or plans, wake up late, and do what seemed fun. I would succeed in resting but didn’t really get anything done. I have since found that my most memorable trips were ones where this verse was happening: “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10 NAS).
When I wake up now and become alert to God’s vision for me, I become ready for some exciting opportunities created by God. I look for His prepared works; I find myself sharing the Gospel more, doing marriage counseling, discussing God–while on vacation! So even when at a conference or on a trip, I want to be able to hear from God’s prepared message for me, but I also want to lift up my head to watch and see how I can serve others.
His vision for my day is to prepare good works to walk in.
My vision for His day is to be ready to walk in those good works.
