Articulate Your Vision

This is what the Sovereign LORD says:
Woe to the foolish prophets
who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing!
– Ezekiel 13:3 (NIV)
Everyone who is speaking about vision isn’t being honest about it. They claim to be prophets of profit or visionaries of victory. It sounds good, but it seems worthless. Some are called gurus. Believe it if you dare. They are false prophets
They are able to lead people in a particular direction, but they do not seem to be able to accomplish true success. Yes, they are able to have small victories and have moments of progress. However, they have little beyond the rhetoric that they spew or the sound bites that they play repetitively throughout the airwaves. According to Ezekiel’s prophecy, they are foolish and following their own spirits, having seen nothing at all or from the Lord.
Don’t be found in that category. Lead as God leads you. Whatever God gives you to do, articulate that vision. Put it in words so that others can grasp the depth and the concept of the vision. Put it in visuals where others can see the vision for themselves. Articulate your vision with all that you have within you.
Most importantly, share the vision that God gave you just the way that God gave it to you. Don’t abridge or edit it for political correctness or popularity, not even prestige. It’s not about you or how you feel. Your opinion doesn’t even matter. You accept it from God and make others aware of what God gave you.
Confirmation will come from God through others who speak up and say that it sounds a lot like what God had been sharing with them or what they had been reading in their daily devotional reading. Give it to others like God gave it to you.
