When we talk about vision, we are talking about understanding, dreaming, imagining.
“One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple.” Psalm 27.4
What was David’s dream? What was in his imagination? He dreamed, imagined, living every day in the House of God. He understood that all the glory, wealth, fame and power he possessed did not compare to the glory of living in the House of God every day and contemplating His beauty.
We were made for much more than what we have or may have, than what we have received or may receive in this world. It is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”1 Corinthians 2.9
The bigger picture, our first vision, should be spending eternity with God. Lets not allow the devil, through the sparkle of this world, concerns and anxieties, cause us to lose this vision, which is a spiritual and eternal vision.
Unfortunately, there are people who, despite being in Church, have a worldly vision, focused only on what this life has to offer.
For example, when speaking of offerings and sacrifices, they become bothered, because this is where their vision and hearts are. On the other hand, those whose vision is spiritual do not mind listening about offerings and sacrifices. This is pleasing for them, because they knows that giving brings benefits today and for all of eternity (1 Chronicles 29.1).
Lets have a vision of prosperity that, by faith, we can conquer this world. However, we must not reverse the values. The first vision is eternity with our Lord.
