WRITE THE VISION
“Where there is no vision, the people perish…” Proverbs 29:18 AMP
One of the great joys of our life and marriage is to hear God’s Word together. Whether it is at a church service, conference or on TV, we love to receive the TRUTH that sets us free! Recently, we were listening to Pastor Keith Moore teach about writing a VISION LIST. (Available at moorelife.org) We both knew it was time to get more focused. Over the next few months we will be explaining in detail the specific vision we believe The Lord has revealed to us for our new TV ministry, “On the Road to Freedom.”
Foremost, we want God’s vision and dreams for our life. If we insist on what we can dream up in our natural mind, we will fall short of the amazing miracles He wants to perform. One translation of this verse above discusses vision as revelation. We have prayed for REVELATION of The Lord’s vision (His plan) for us and for you! One version says “Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained...” Unrestrained means out of control. Keith Moore explained it this way, “Faith without vision is faith unfocused.” It is important that you be SPECIFIC with your requests. Faith is very specific!
Mark 11:24 NKJV says, “Therefore I say to you, whatever THINGS you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” This verse is talking about praying for specific things. Philippians 4:6 confirms this saying, “Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (DEFINITE REQUESTS), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.” How will we know when God has supernaturally moved on our behalf if we don’t know what we are believing for? We must have a specific vision to release our faith into or we are just playing church!
After we receive revelation of God’s vision for us, we are instructed in Habakkuk 2:2-3 to write it down: “Then the LORD answered me and said, “Write the vision And make it plain...So that the one who reads it will run. For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time. It hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, Because it will certainly come; it will not delay.” This is one of our favorite verses! Most of our journey with the Lord is not at the beginning of a dream, where there is such excitement and thrill for the unknown. Neither is it the final blessed day of fulfillment where we see our dreams come true. Most of our journey is the time in between! WAITING on God’s appointed time. But as we wait, we keep doing our part- we believe! The promises of God WILL NOT FAIL! They will not be delayed or late. Unlike us…God is always RIGHT ON TIME!! Brother Moore asked three questions that will help us put our God given vision in writing:
- What are you believing to GIVE into the kingdom this year? (Remember as we “Seek FIRST the kingdom of God,” He will ADD ALL THESE THINGS to us.)
- All of our current obligations/needs/debts. What and who do we owe?
- Write down everything you would like to HAVE or DO if money was no object.
Concerning the third point above, we would like to encourage you to DREAM BIG! We serve a big God! Years ago, Kenneth Copeland brought both of us forward and prophesied an amazing life changing Word. Then he finished with a statement that we will never forget. He said, “And the things that you've prayed for- the only thing wrong with them is that they have just been too little!” Wow, we need to take the limits off of God! The only thing that limits Him is our ability to believe and receive. We went home and immediately changed how we were praying! Praise God, as we joined our faith with His Word, He did “exceedingly, abundantly, above ALL that we could ask, think, dream or imagine!”
James 4:2 says to simply ask… You do not have because you have not asked. Please get this: our dreams coming true are NOT according to what God can do or even His will. It’s according to our faith that we appropriate His will. Again Mark 11:24 says, “…BELIEVE that you receive them and you WILL have them.” This is not a wish list! If we can figure out how to make it happen, it’s not faith. We are releasing FAITH for this between us & God. Let’s use the time wisely without worry or fear, instead believing God for a VISION fulfilled!
As a TEAM MYLON member, when you AGREE with us in prayer and in giving, we are standing in AGREEMENT with you for ALL of your dreams to come true! Amos 3:3 says, “Can two walk together unless they are agreed?” When we stay in unity and go TOGETHER “into all the world and preach and teach and make disciples” through TV ministry, church services, internet and prisons…GREAT things are happening!
We Love You,
Mylon & Christi
