Isaiah 29:11-12 “11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: 12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.”
The vision of ALL, whether you are born out of wedlock, illiterate or literate, black, white, yellow, the bible says ALL, so that includes you. I need you to pay attention to what you are reading; this is not just another blog post that you can scroll through. There’s a lot to gain from it only if you tap into God’s wisdom behind this teaching.
In Isaiah 29:11, they gave the book to the illiterate, and he said, he cannot read it because he is illiterate, then they gave the book to the literate, he said he cannot. Everyone has an excuse or excuses not to study the word of God. Many Christians today do not know that their destinies are found in God’s word.
What is the Bible?
• The Bible is life’s manual
• Destiny compass
• It is the brochure of life
• The custodian of vision for every man (woman inclusive) on earth
However, you need to be a child of God to get access to it. 2 Timothy 3:15-17, the sixty-six books of the bible can help you in four significant ways if you adhere to it;
• Doctrine: the scriptures are created to teach you
• For reproof: to judge you if you are aligning with God or not
• For correction: to help you retrace your steps, to guide you back to His plan
• For instruction: to direct your actions
2 Peter 1:19-21
The Bible is the oldest book with the latest solution to encourage you; there is nothing you cannot find in the Bible. There is no challenge you are going through that the word of God cannot save you from. If you want to get married, go to the Bible, if you want to build a house, go to the scriptures. As unbelievable that sounds, it is the truth. The reason we think the bible does not have the solutions to our problems is that we are not patient enough to ask the Holy Spirit to open our eyes that we may see the answers in the word. Soothsayers, fetish prophets or witchdoctors do not have answers that you seek; God has given the answers to all our questions in His word. Deuteronomy 18: 9-13.
Genesis 13:14-15 God told our covenant father Abraham after Lot has separated from him; Lot was like a clog to his destiny. Let me use this opportunity to say this, if your friend suddenly abandons you, do not be distraught; certain people need to leave your life before God can bless you. As a covenant child of God, if your fiancé or fiancée broke up with you, thank God; He saw what you couldn’t see in years to come. Relax in God’s love; your God-ordained partner will meet you soon.
Moving on, God is telling you today to look; from where you are, look northward, i.e., Genesis, look southward, i.e., Malachi, look eastward, i.e., Matthew and look westward, i.e. Revelation. As far as your eyes can see from Genesis to Malachi and then from Matthew to Revelation will be yours. If your eyes can catch family bliss, your home won’t be in crisis; if your eyes can catch marital breakthrough, then you will be married no matter your age. If God can give Sarah a child at 90, then you are still very young and fresh not to be fruitful. All you have to do is to catch the rhema from the Word of God.
The Word is God’s prophetic agenda for the redeemed Isaiah 34:16, seek your solutions out of God’s word (the Bible), it didn’t say seek your answers in your boss, neighbor, friends but the Book.
Genesis 3:9-11, God asks Adam who told you, you are naked? As a believer, you have to trash any news that is not aligned with God’s word that is one way to overcome the devil who is the father of lies. Who told you that you are barren? When it is written concerning you that, none shall be barren in the land.
Who told you that you would not get married? When it is written that you shall not lack your mate, He created both male and female. Who told you, you shall not live long? When it is written that a child shall die at 100. We need to wake up as Christians, do not allow the devil to play with your destiny by whispering lies to your mind. Isaiah 14:24 whatever God has proposed in His hear shall come to pass in your life. Luke 1:45, Proverbs 29:18,
What is Vision?
Vision is the unfolding of God’s plan as it relates to you as an individual and the unfolding is from the Book. Vision is the discovery God’s purpose for you through the scriptures. Vision is stronger than ambition, ambitious is what you want to be, but a vision is what you are created to do. Vision talks about a divine assignment, allotted to you.
“I want to be a pastor” that’s ambition. I have discovered that God wants me to preach the gospel, that’s vision, “I want to be a medical doctor” that is ambition, I have discovered that God wants me to be in the medical field” that is a vision. Paul was a legal luminary until he answered the call of God, now he is celebrated worldwide;, you can’t read or teach the scripture without quoting Paul, Act 26:19.
Unveiling God’s plan for your life from His book comes in three perspectives;
1. You are redeemed to walking in dominion Ephesians 2:6, Ephesians 1:20, you have dominion over sin, sicknesses, poverty, all powers of hell, etc.
2. You are redeemed to rein as a king on the earth; every covenant child of Abraham is either a king or a nation Genesis 17:6 Galatians 3:29
3. You are redeemed to be a blessing to your world and not a burden Galatians 3:13-14, Genesis 2:16-18. Once you are born again, you are divinely connected to the Abrahamic covenant of blessings.
Encourage yourself in the Lord, with the above list that shows us God’s plan for our lives; anything contrary to that is not of God. If you are not enjoying the benefit of salvation, check your path; go before your maker, He will direct you. Isaiah 30:21.
