Be Thou My Vision

“Be thou my vision, oh Lord of my heart”.  Interesting words with an incredible clarity.  Everyone wants a clear vision, most expect a “new vision”, because the old one is not good enough.

I don’t know how many times I have been asked in my ministry and even during conferences / seminars “what is my vision”.  The funny thing is I have even been told that vision was / is too vague.  I was even told by one of my teachers it had to encompass more “qualities”.

My vision has been and still is the same as God’s, “…not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance2 Peter 3:9.  My vision is the fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20) under the full obedience of the Great Commandment (Mark 12:30).  One will not do the Great Commission if they do not embrace the Great Commandment

Sometimes we wait for a new revelation from God on what we should be doing or “honing” in on, when to me it is very simple.  Jesus said He would build His church on one thing; the confession of believers just like Peter made in Matt 16:16 “…Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  Jesus went on to say that the carnal man does not understand this, but it is the spirit inside of man listening to the Spirit of God when it is revealed to him and he believes “…for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.”  Matt 16:17.

So my vision is the same as Jesus’.  For the Spirit of God to infiltrate the heart of man as the people of God proclaim the Great Commission because they believe and obey the Great Commandment.

Nothing new, nothing fancy, very simple.  Imagine, EACH ONE REACHING ONE in obedience to the Word of God.  That is my vision oh Lord of my heart!
