For one to see,they have to purposely and deliberately open their eyes, otherwise their eyes would be of no use.How then do we open our eyes to see clearly our purpose in life?Allow me to use this analogy: A young lady decides to go shopping. While in an electric store, she stumbles upon a beautifully displayed appliance that she recognized having seen at her friend’s house.She remembered how it made her friend’s house look good and classy .Seeing how beautiful this appliance was,she decides to purchase it and take it home with her, keeping in mind she absolutely has no idea what the appliance’s function is or even how it is operated.At home,she tries to figure out what this appliance is for.She tries to press buttons on it to see what button does what.At the end of the day she is frustrated because upto now she has neither found out what comands the buttons give nor what she can use this beautiful appliance for. I know what you are thinking, why couldn’t she just have asked from the store what the appliance was for?Alternatively can’t she just read the manual?Two simple options that would have solved her problem.
But you see,most of us are like this lady.We just find oursleves leading lives without knowing which button in us commands what or even what our function in life is.The answer to truly seeing our vision lies in seeking our creator, that is, the maker of the ‘appliance’.We can never go wrong in seeking God to know our purpose, for He is the one who placed us in the world in the first place.We can go our own ways to try and figure it out but I assure you, it is frustrating. Supposing you are a fruit blender and you have no idea and all you are doing is trying to fit clothes in to function as a washing machine😟.I mean you’ll wear yourself out trying to do what you were not built to do.Let us seek God and draw closer and closer to him to know and understand what it is we were built for.
An electric appliance has to be connected to electricity for it to work.Connect yourself with the right people for you to live up to your vision.Some relationships pull you back from fully living up to your vision.Imagine trying to power an elctric cooker with a battery or worse still water (now that you heard electricity can be harnessed through water-dams)😟.May you realize the relationships/partnerships that are hindering you from stretching fully into your God-given vision in life and break lose from them.Abraham had to cut ties with Lot for him to make progress into his vision. Isaiah couldn’t see a vision until King Uziah died.Let go of the people drawing you away from your vision and begin to connect with people who will lead you closer to it.Paul had to connect with Ananias for the scales in his eyes to come off that he may see again.
After connecting with God to know and understand your vision and detaching from those who pull you back,now you have to live for the vision.Dedicate your life fully into the vision.This may not be easy at first but once you believe in the one who gave you the vision in the first place and believe in the vision itself, you are able to stand for it and push for it.Challenges will definitely come along the way but understanding the greatness of the vision helps you cruize through the challenges, emerging victorious in the end. The promise is that, that which God begins in us He shall see it to completion.Knowing that a vision is God-given and God-driven gives us peace that the vision will never fail no matter the challenges that will arise. This is why Paul confidently ,even though going through much affliction, says that he does not lose heart and that he fixes his eyes on what is unseen for in it there is an eternal crown of glory.
Desire and strive to have clarity of vision, on what your purpose is ,for in this lies so much power.They say,No one is you and that is your power, this power however becomes activated only when you get your vision right!
