Vision for a Godly Future

Title: Vision for a Godly Future

Text: Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)

"Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he."


Beloved in Christ, I want to share a timely and relevant message with everyone today. Our text comes from the book of Proverbs, chapter 29, verse 18. It is a powerful verse that speaks of the importance of vision in the life of an individual and the community. As we delve into this passage, let us open our hearts and minds to receive God's wisdom.

I. The Importance of Vision

Vision is a clear and inspiring picture of the future, a sense of direction, purpose, and goals that God has laid on your heart. The guiding force propels us forward, motivating us to be better and do better.

When the Bible says, "Where there is no vision, the people perish," it points to the critical role vision plays in our lives. With image, people gain their sense of purpose, direction, and the will to strive for a better future. They may become complacent, stagnant, and disillusioned, leading to spiritual, emotional, and physical decline.

In the Bible, we find examples of great men and women of God who possessed vision. Abraham, the Father of faith, had the idea of becoming the Father of many nations. Joseph had dreams that revealed his future role as a leader. Moses had a vision of leading the Israelites to the Promised Land. These examples show that vision is essential to living a life pleasing to God.

II. The Source of Vision: God's Word

The second part of the verse says, "he that keepeth the law, happy is he." It reminds us that good vision is rooted in the Word of God. A God-given vision aligns with His will and purposes for our lives. It reveals God's plan for us, not merely our desires or ambitions.

We must continually immerse ourselves in God's Word, seeking His guidance and wisdom in every aspect of our lives. As we do this, we will find that our vision becomes more precise and more focused on what truly matters. We will experience the joy and happiness of aligning our lives with God's will.

III. The Power of a Shared Vision

As we embrace God's vision for our lives, it is essential to understand the power of a shared vision within the community of believers. A shared vision creates unity and fosters collaboration, enabling us to achieve more than we could alone.

Jesus' vision for His church was to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything He commanded (Matthew 28:19-20). As the body of Christ, we must work together to fulfill this Great Commission, sharing our resources, talents, and gifts to build God's kingdom on earth.


As we reflect on Proverbs 29:18, let us take to heart the importance of having a vision for our lives and communities. Let us seek God's guidance and wisdom, ensuring our vision aligns with His will and purpose. And finally, let us embrace the power of a shared vision, working together as the body of Christ to make disciples and advance God's kingdom on earth.

May the Lord bless you and keep you as you seek His vision
