The Power of Vision

John 9:39, And Jesus said, For judgement I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.”
We live in a generation of information explosion and technology where man’s intellectual prowess has become pronounced, advanced and dominant. Man has in the last few decades achieved great heights in science, he has walked on the moon, made tremendous progress in genetic engineering and cloning and successfully performed brain surgeries there were impossible many years ago. To a large extent he has conquered time and space but has failed woefully in taming the beast in the natural man that has manifested in murder, inordinate ambition and the likes.
Even though God gave man dominion at the beginning, man has failed to submit his will and thereby unable to tap into what made the second Adam, Jesus Christ, successful in every aspect of his life. Jesus had vision, the ability to answer questions that nothing or anyone else can answer. In John 9:39, Jesus described the people that operate by sight as blind. This is because they are limited and can never see the important things that can help them fulfill destiny.
Lots of people in this generation believe they can see, they are persuaded that they know what they are doing and this is what has brought the world to where we are today. They fail to realize that sight is not vision. Jesus came so that we will have vision and anyone who refuses to bow to the will of God will remain carnal and see with their physical eyes only and make no genuine progress. The questions of who am i? Where did I come from? What should I be doing and where are my going? can only be answered by divine vision.
The worst mistake that anyone can make is to rely on human sight above and against vision. The human sight contradicts vision. Vision has the ability to see what sight cannot see. Vision gives strength to overcome adversity. At the garden of Gethsemane in Matthew 26:36-46, it was vision that provided strength to and keep him going to the end.
Hebrews 12:2, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God”
Many people have missed it because they allowed others to define them by sight. We can only be defined by revelation. Jesus in Mathew 16:17-18 acknowledged that Peter would never been able to reveal his identity except by divine vision. In the same way, never let anyone tell you who you are. The truth is that nobody really knows anybody except by revelation.
If we must succeed, divine vision is inevitable and it is only the last Adam, Jesus Christ that can impart vision. When you get vision, your purpose becomes clear. We are all created champions but without vision, we stagnate and eventually walk away from the plan and purpose of God.
Psalm 139:1, “I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well”
We are designed to succeed and it’s only by vision we can know this. God has sent us as mediator between him and man on earth. Our eyes must open to this and we must pursue it.
