ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): PROVERBS 13:20
MESSAGE TOPIC: VISION ENHANCERS
By: Dr Paul Enenche
SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding the forces that will enhance our vision
Vision is a spiritual force that can be enhanced or destroyed by certain forces
1. Associating correctly with people of vision (Prov. 13:20; 1 Sam. 17:29-30)
Your associations affect your vision
1a. Your company affects your mindset
1b. Your company affects your thought process
1c. Your company affects your choices
1d. Your company affects your habit
1e. Your company affects your lifestyle
1f. Your company affects your outcome in life
People begin to think like who they walk with – you begin to think like them, talk like them, act like them and see things the way they see things
You are not interested about your future until you are careful about who your friends are
If your friends think big you think big, if they think possibility you think possibility, if they think
revolution you think revolution
On the other hand, if your friends think small, scarcity, or limitation, you will end up thinking the same
Those who think you are too ambitious or think you are too small to be thinking the way you are thinking are people you must turn away from (1 Sam. 17:29-30)
You need a turn before you can see a turn around
Don’t love anybody enough to give you ear and your mind to anyone whose thinking is contrary
2. Connecting inspiration from people with proven results of their vision
Mentors, role models and fathers give us the opportunity to know how to think, what to think, how to dream and envision, and know what to dare
2a. Their reality shows us our possibilities
2b. Their manifestations fertilize our vision
Children will produce their parents’ actions by watching them
The reason why many cannot amount to so much in life is because they despise the place of role models and fathers
The father is a ladder and a feather, needed to climb.
You play your role at your best if you can connect with your role model
3. Avoiding the lifestyle of strife and contention (Gen. 13:14-15, 5-7; Luke 4:30)
3a. Strife and contention take the eyes off the vision, and the future
3b. Strife and contention redirect the thought and energy to the object of strife
3c. To be drawn into strife and contention is to be drawn out of positive vision and profitable action
3d. You need your mind to picture the future, plan the future and make decisions unto profitable action
Refuse to fill your mind with strife, contention and unhealthy competition.
WHY YOU MUST AVOID STRIFE:
i. You can strive and contend to the point where your sole purpose for existence is to prove the enemy wrong; that is a waste of life.
ii. You can strive and contend to the point where your sole purpose for existence is to outdo, de-shine or impress the enemy; at that point you may end up living to make impression instead of giving expression to your life’s potentials
iii. To strive with people is to avoid excellence
iv. To allow strife and contention is to be disconnected from Divine intervention (Jam. 3:16)
You must free your mind to think clearly and face the future
Bitter? There is no time to be bitter; there is work to do. – Nelson Mandela
4. Maintaining the climate of joy and praise (Rom. 14:17; Joel 2:28; Isa. 12:3; 2 Kings 3:15;
Neh. 8:10; Hab. 2:2; Ps. 106:12; 1 Pet. 1:8; Hab. 2:2-4)
The climate of joy and praise is a booster of the life of vision
4a. Joy facilitates the ministry of the Holy Ghost, and the Holy Ghost is the Architect of dreams and visions (Rom. 14:17; Joel 2:28)
4b. Joy and praise connect the heart of man to the frequency of inspiration (Isa. 12:3; 2 Kings 3:15)
4c. Joy and praise impart strength and energy, and you need strength and energy to run with the vision (Neh. 8:10; Hab. 2:2)
4d. Joy and praise confirm and boost our faith and faith is needed to fulfil the vision (Ps. 106:12; 1 Pet. 1:8; Hab. 2:2-4)
Father, I ask that You will help me to become the picture of me You had in mind before I was created, Lord in Jesus Name – Jer. 1:5.
Father, we ask that You will help us as a Nation to get it right this time around. Help us Lord to realize the glory allocated to our Nation, Lord in Jesus Name – Isaiah 35:2.
In the Name of Jesus, every arrow of destruction and disaster fired in my direction, you are returning back to hell! Oh you arrows, on your marks, get set, BACK TO SENDER!
– All the forces of hell that will not allow you and your family to rest will be laid to rest!
– When God is through with us as a nation, even America will envy us!
– Every demonic spirit monitoring your life, catches fire now!
– Every embargo placed on your life is lifted right now!
