Views of the Vision
Mindsets are very important in making life decisions. Often, the Lord shows us or leads us to a way in our life which we often refer to as “Vision”. I believe, even non believers have visions. Visions are concrete pictures. They are inevitable and highly expected in the future. But what makes it a mere vision rather than being The Vision depends on the mindset of a person.
1. The Positive View
Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.”
- Numbers 13:30
In the journey of the Israelites to the Promise land, they arrived at a strategy to foresee the land before everyone else gets there. Result was, some of Moses’ men came in with reports. Thing is, they both saw the same thing, the same place, the same situation of the land. But they had different reports.
Optimism is a factor to a better life. Bt I believe, when a vision came from God, optimism has to be evident because note that everything that comes from the Lord is perfect and is meant to either save us or keep us safe in life. This is the beauty of grace.
2. The Negative View
…we seem like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.
- Numbers 13:33
On the other hand, of course some people would oppose those people with the right visions. I remember Pastor Arnold saying. “Ang kalaban ng mga may vision ay ang mga walang vision.” Up until now that rings a bell in my ear. Truly if you had the right vision you would believe and let other people believe this vision. Otherwise, if you didn’t have one or you got it completely wrong, you’d be the one destroying the whole community
The vision is already there. We just have to grab it and understand how perfect and able our God is.
