Do you have a vision for your life, your business, church or ministry? Let me suggest you call it your testimony rather than your vision! Why call your vision the ‘testimony’ rather than the vision?
A testimony is giving an account of a personal encounter with God. A vision is normally future tense whereas a testimony is normally past tense. According to what the Lord has shown you it has already taken place in ‘His story’; believe that this has already happened in your future and declare it is already done! It has already happened – now you just have to catch up with history and His story.
What the testimony shows, like any testimony, is the end result and that is not a place to start, except in that it provides a kind of compass bearing to make sure the steps taken are all working towards this. You may not know how long this will take to reach, but in one sense that is irrelevant because it’s the journey that will create it. Get the journey right and the end result will be right.
If the testimony is the flesh then the scriptures are the bones, the structure upon which it all rests and stands. Translating the scriptures into actions will be the sinews and the muscles that make it all work, and of course the Spirit leading is the breathe that brings life to it all. This is a very familiar metaphor but it is good to see how this applies to what the Lord is bringing about in your life.
