Contend for the Vision God has given you...

God given Vision - what’s next?

A vision can happen in a moment, but it can take a lifetime to manifest to its fullest potential…

Here are 10 KEYS to help you on your journey of fulfilling the destiny God has for you.


KEY - Write the Vision

~ Habakkuk 2:2-3

2 And the LORD answered me: "Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.

3 For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end--it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay…


KEY - What’s the purpose?

Vision always has purpose - God’s heart is always to impact people.

Who is God wanting to reach through the vision He has given?

~ Philippians 2:3-4 

3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.


KEY - What solution, problem or need is the Vision solving?

How does it build the Kingdom? Is Christ the cornerstone? 

Service or product - what’s the end goal? 


KEY - God never gives you a vision to fulfill by yourself-

God always wants to be included, and it is by His strength, wisdom, favor and timing that it will come to pass…

~ Psalms 32:8

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.

~ Psalms 37:4-5

4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.


KEY - Is the Vision possible?

God wouldn’t have said it unless it was possible - All things are possible (with) God - 

~ Philippians 4:19

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

~ 2 Corinthians 9:8

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed;

~ Psalm 34:10

The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing

KEY - When and whom do you share the vision with? 

Don’t get caught into the trap of seeking the opinion or approval of Man to know if the vision is possible.   The limited vision of another can derail your faith and delay the progress.

~ Isaiah 55:8-9

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,

Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

So are My ways higher than your ways

And My thoughts than your thoughts


KEY - Persistence

~ Matthew 7:7

Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.

~ Galatians 6:9

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 

KEY -  Avoiding Hope Deferred 

Hope deferred happens when you hope more in the vision or people than you do Jesus. Our hope is in Jesus.

~ Proverbs 13:12

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

~ Psalm‬ ‭33‬:‭20‬-‭22‬‬

We put our hope in the Lord; He is our protector and our help.

We are glad because of Him; we trust in His holy name.

May your constant love be with us, Lord, as we put our hope in You.

KEY - Unforgiveness can hinder your prayers

~ Mark 11:24-25 

24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”


KEY - Keep your Motives Pure

God wants our motives and words to line up to His words and desires.

If your vision is about building wealth - what is the wealth needed for? The more you know, the more the vision can grow with the right motives and plumb-lines.

~ 3 John 2

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

~ Proverb 18:21 NLT

The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.

~ Luke 12:31

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and He will give you everything you need.

~ James 4:3

When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

~ Luke 12:15

Then He said to them, “Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions.”

~ James 3:9-10

9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it, we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.
