What Is Vision? (1 Of 4)
by Ron Clarkson
It may be tough way to start a series and a message, but I have some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is that if you capture the essence of vision, and do what it takes to make vision operative in your life, then it will make a world of difference in your life and in the lives of those around you. The alternative of having no vision in your life is one is not a pretty picture...
Raising Vision (2 of 6)
by Kerry Shook
We see a church that is driven by God's vision to be bold and innovative to do whatever it takes to reach The Woodlands and surrounding areas for Christ. We see a place where a person with no church background can come and feel comfortable and enjoy the service because the atmosphere will be non-threatening and friendly. The sermons are always practical, biblical and relevant. The music is contemporary and upbeat with a praise team and full band...

INTRODUCTION: Verse 18 is remarkable for being a wisdom verse that alludes to both the prophetic movement and the law. The word of ‘‘revelation’’ (vision) is commonly associated with the visions of the prophets (prophetic vision) and stands for the importance of prophetic exhortations on whoever keeps the law. Social harmony cannot be achieved without the exhortations of the prophets and the teaching of the law...
Where There Is No Vision
by Nelson Price
JESUS CHRIST had a clear vision of what His mission was. As a result, His life had purpose, meaning, and fulfillment in that He achieved His mission on earth. Much is said in our society about goal setting. Manuals on how to set goals have been best sellers. Books on the value of a vision are broadly circulated. Solomon, in his wisdom and under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit wrote, "Where there is no vision the people perish." The NKJ translates it, "Where there is no revelation... the people cast off restraint..." Meaning, if people don't know what to do, they don't do anything or they do their own thing.
A Victorious Vision
by Rick White
This is a very personal kind of message. Robert K. Greenleaf, in his book The Servant as Leader, says, ‘‘Foresight is the ‘lead’ that the... leader has. Once he looses this lead and events start to force his hand, he is leader in name only. He is not leading; he is reacting to immediate events and he probably will not long be a leader. There are abundant current examples of loss of leadership which stems from a failure to foresee what reasonably could have been foreseen, and...

The Importance of a Vision
by Ken Trivette
Solomon speaks of a vision. The very thought of a vision implies the thought of future impossibilities. To have a vision speaks of looking at things as they are and seeing Things as they can be. George Barna in his book the power of vision writes: ‘‘vision is a picture held in the minds eye of the way Things could or should be in the day’s ahead.’’ John Sculley, who is greatly responsible for the success Of apple computers wrote: ‘‘visionaries are constantly Fighting...
The Importance of a Vision
by Rex Yancey
King Ahaz sinned against God and brought judgment on his nation. The punishment came through the King of Aran who enslaved many of his people. Embarrassed and distressed over his glaring defeat, the Jewish king made the monumental mistake of attributing the Aramean victory to their gods. Whatever small faith he had in Jehovah was completely discarded in favor of idol worship. ''Because the gods of the kings of Aram helped them,'' he reasoned, ''I will...

by Stan Coffey
I.THE HEAVENLY VISION II. THE HEAVENLY VISITATION III. THE HEAVENLY VOICE Tonight I want to invite your attention for our study to Isaiah Chapter 6 and we are going to begin in Verse 1. Tonight I want us to think about the subject, ‘‘The Power of a Vision’’. Isaiah was a prophet who began his ministry in Israel in the year 767 B.C.

During prayer one night, I heard a cry. The cry came from a deep, secret place; I knew I was to find a quiet place to seek God's face over this tiny cry. I left the church, and went into the parking lot to the shelter of my car. I needed a place of solitary where I would not be disrupted. Once I shut the car door, the cry became so...

This was the great hour in Samuel's life. It was both his conversion and his call. We can imagine the intense excitement it must have stirred within that boyish heart. Hitherto Samuel had been a child. His farthest horizon had been his mother's home. He had been happy, as any child would be, doing his little tasks within the...
