“Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18).
Spiritual Vision is the purpose or reason for achieving the spiritual goal. The Master Spiritual Vision answers the question, “Why accomplish the Master Spiritual Goal?” Uncovering the purpose or reason for achieving the Master Spiritual Goal gives a sense of purpose and creates enthusiasm for reaching the goal.
The Importance of Your Spiritual Vision
The Bible is very explicit with regards to the importance of vision. “Where there is no vision,” the writer of Proverbs wrote, “the people are unrestrained” (Proverbs 29:18). Without knowledge of the will of God and a purpose for living, people will flounder aimlessly.
To capture the importance and magnificence splendor of your vision, it may help to think upon God’s heavenly identification and commendation of Jesus at His baptism and His transfiguration. At the baptism of Jesus, God spoke from the heavens: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17). At the Transfiguration, God spoke to the disciples out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased” (Matthew 17:5). On both occasions, God took great delight in singling out Jesus and His unique relationship with Him. First, there was a heavenly identification, “This is My beloved Son.” Second, there was a divine commendation, “in whom I am well pleased.”
In the same way on judgment day, God will single out and identify all those who appear before Him. People will either be acknowledged and welcomed to heaven as beloved sons and daughters or told to depart because they are not a part of the family of God.
Included in the beloved sons and daughters will be Spiritual Paradigm II B believers. For these individuals, the identification will go one step further and add a commendation. This commendation will be for those in whom God is well pleased— those who walked with God during their lifetime on earth.
When you catch the joy and excitement of personally hearing God say, Welcome, well done thy good and faithful servant enter into My joy, you will begin to do everything you can to ensure that you walk with God.
