Open Heaven 4 May 2024 TOPIC: Where Is Your Vision?

MEMORISE: “And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” – Habakkuk 2:2 (KJV)

READ: Habakkuk 2:2-3 (KJV)

2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 20-23

Open Heaven 4 May 2024 MESSAGE

Light can be shining brightly outside, but if your eyes have grown dim, it will not matter because you will be unable to experience its brightness. Genesis 27:1 says that Isaac waxed old, and his eyes became dim that he could not see. This tells you that when a person’s vision dies, it means old age has set in.

In Ecclesiastes 12:1-3, when Solomon said, “…those that looked out of the windows be darkened,” that was his way of saying, “When your eyes can no longer see as a result of old age”. So, one of the ways you will know that you are in your old age is when you no longer have visions. Joel 2:28 tells us that you get to an age when visions become replaced with dreams. The right visions drive people to run (Habakkuk 2:2) to ensure that they are fulfilled, while those who dream usually do nothing to bring their dreams to reality.

Some years ago, I was talking to three elders who are also my special friends, and I told them that the definition of old age is ‘dreamers’. As long as you still have a vision you are pursuing, it means you are not yet old. This is why I sometimes joke that only those who are older than me are elders because I am still pursuing my vision. So, I am still young, even at 82. It is pathetic to see young people who are already old because they have no vision. Yes, they talk about dreams for their future, but they are mere wishes because you don’t see them pursuing them at all. When I see such young people, I often think to myself, “Young fellow, where is your vision?”

When a person becomes a dreamer instead of a visioner, then the fellow is old. Such a person’s day, which is the time he or she has to spend on the earth, is almost over. The word of God says in Proverbs 29:18, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” In other words, when a person’s vision is gone, the fellow is on his or her way out.

I believe God is talking to a specific reader of this devotional. You had great visions, but now, you have forgotten about them. Wake up!

Open Heaven 4 May 2024 REFLECTION

What is the vision you have been actively pursuing?

Open Heaven 4 May 2024 HYMN 12 – Onward, Christian Soldiers!

1 Onward Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before.
Christ, the royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See, His banners go!
Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus,
Going on before.

2 At the name of Jesus
Satan’s host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers,
On to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
At the shout of praise:
Brothers, lift your voices,
Loud your anthems raise!

3 Like a mighty army
Moves the Church of God:
Brothers, we are treading
Where the saints have trod;
We are not divided,
All one Body we—
One in faith and Spirit,
One eternally.

4 Crowns and thrones may perish,
Kingdoms rise and wane;
But the Church of Jesus
Constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never
’Gainst the Church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise,
Which can never fail.

5 Onward, then, ye people!
Join our happy throng;
Blend with ours your voices
In the triumph song.
Glory, laud and honor
Unto Christ, the King;
This through countless ages
Men and angels sing.
