– Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche on “THE NECESSITY AND PROFIT OF VISION – Part 3″ Midweek Service/Glory Rise Fast Day 17 Glory Dome, Abuja.
I welcome everyone here tonight to the auspicious presence of the Lord. I believe that this is the day that the Lord has made and we shall rejoice and be glad in it.
We started the subject on the necessity and profit of vision. This will be part 3. Our objective has been understanding why vision is necessary, why it is necessary, profitable and valuable to live with vision.
Proverbs 29:18. What is the meaning of that? It means that Vision is critical for life both in quality and durability. The quality of a person’s life is anchored on vision, durability of life is also anchored on vision.
We are going to continue from where we stopped last week. We have seen 10 profits of vision so far. The first one we saw, we said that vision gives beauty to life, then we saw that vision gives meaning to life, then we saw that vision gives drive to life, then we saw that vision brings order and discipline to life, then we saw that vision brings focus to life and delivers from distractions.
That was two Wednesdays ago. Last Wednesday, we continued with point number six, that vision brings life out of darkness and then vision causes a life to become an illumination and then vision births optimism, enthusiasm, positivism. People of vision are enthusiastic and positivistic, they’re optimistic.
We saw that vision brings speed to life and 10, we saw that vision brings transformation, it changes something inside people.
11. Vision brings wisdom. People of vision are people of wisdom. Matthew 6:22. Ecclesiastes 2:13. Wisdom equals light and foolishness equals darkness. Daniel 5:11.
Singleness of the eye is vision and light is wisdom. So, people of vision are people of wisdom. Joseph was a man of vision.
Genesis 37:7-9. Genesis 41:39. So, we see Joseph the man of vision as the man of wisdom. You look at another example, David. David was a man of vision, David was the man who saw the days of Christ from his day. In fact, he saw Jesus seated on the right hand of the Father from his own day. Psalm 110:1.
That was the kind of vision David had, he could see the day of Christ from his day. 2 Samuel 14:20.
Show me a man of vision, I will show you a man of wisdom. Show me a woman of vision, I will show you a woman of wisdom. The area of your vision is the area of your wisdom.
Every area you have vision, in that area, wisdom opens up to how to achieve that vision. Light comes for those who have singleness of eye. Everywhere you have a vision, in that area, the wisdom opens up for the vision to come to pass.
My vision was to have a hitch-free marriage before I got married and it became clear to me what to do for such a life to be possible.
Hitch-free, stress-free, struggle-free, quarrel-free, confrontation-free. The area of your vision is the area of your wisdom.
Now, listen to me as I conclude on this, it is confirmed that visionlessness most times equals senselessness. Most visionless people are also senseless people. When you see them behave and manifest, you will be wondering.
Young boy of about 21 years old, no vision for his life, so senseless. Adult man, about 53 years old, no vision for his life and for his children and so forth, he’s just so senseless. Visionlessness is senselessness, visionlessness is aimlessness.
Beloved, when you step into the world of vision, you have stepped into the arena of wisdom.
12. Vision unveils or uncovers opportunities. So, the man of vision is the man of opportunities. The woman of vision is never lacking in opportunities. Vision opens your eyes to opportunities. In 1 Samuel 17, David had the vision of pulling down Goliath, but Goliath was a formidable force. Goliath was covered, armed to the teeth, every part of Goliath was covered.
Everybody saw Goliath as impossible to handle, I mean, even if you shot an arrow, there’s nowhere (to penetrate), every part of his body was protected.
But, when David got the vision of pulling down Goliath, that vision opened his eyes to see a portion of Goliath that was not covered, the unprotected forehead and he had been a sharp shooter before. So, he saw that forehead as a window of opportunity by vision.
Others had no vision to pull him down at all but David said, I kept my fathers sheep and a lion came, a bear came, I pulled them down, this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of those. 1 Samuel 17:34-37. In verse 49, he accomplished his feat.
