It’s vision casting time for a new year.  So…cast vision with your cell and/or church family.

Vision is foresight with insight based on hindsight.  It is seeing the invisible and making it visible.  It is a God inspired strategic understanding of a different future.

Important characteristics of vision include:  Change oriented, Customized, Challenging, People oriented, Long term, Driving force, Reveals a promising future, Encourages giving, and Provides stability.

God says:  “I am able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think according to his power that works within us…Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland…Where there is no vision, the people perish.”

Hebrews 11:8-16  details seven motivations necessary to accomplishing a vision. 

Faith in God (v. 8), Sacrifice (v. 9), Patience (v. 10), Bless others (v. 12), Be Persistent (v. 13), Maintain my joy (vv. 13-14), and Make eternal choices (vv. 15-16).

May God grant to you His vision this new year!
