In order for Abraham to see how many descendants he will have that would come from his son, God had to show him a big picture of what that would look like.
Genesis 15:5 NASB
And He took him outside and said, “Now look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”
What’s the big picture for your life?
Have you visualized what that picture looks like yet?
Have you captured that vision?
Are you still focusing on it?
Have you set this as your priority in life?
What do you need to get back on track?
Do you spend any or enough time seeing yourself doing that moment?
Do you know that the big picture is the final or end result of a God given destiny for your life?
God gave Joseph a vision of this future.
In Genesis 37:7
Behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and behold, my sheaf arose and stood upright. And behold, your sheaves gathered around it and bowed down to my sheaf.”
Now Joseph didn’t understand all the things that would happen to him along the way nor did he understand the fullness of what it meant, but knew that he would be in some kind of authority above his brothers.
How shall you carry out the parts of your dream?
Have you started at the beginning?
Have you searched your heart and mind to find what things to do to get you there?
Have you made notes?
What tools do you need to help develop your talents and abilities?
Have anything stopped you from carrying out any of God’s plan for your life?
Are you just happy where you are or do you want what God wants for your life?
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Have you fallen and not gotten back up?
Are you stuck in today, looking back at yesterday over and over again?
Are we not a mirror image of God?
Then why are you still stuck in today thinking about yesterday?
Open your eyes and see
The big picture for your life
It’s not in yesterday or today, but in the future days to come.
Can you see yourself there yet?
Heaven awaits your decision to follow your dream.
That vision is not just some random thought, it has purpose.
It’s your guide to your future
It’s not just been given you to store in your memory banks as some dream you once had.
It has a life
A life to be born into this world like you were made to carrier out the vision.
You were born for this reason
Genesis 41:43-45 NASB
He had him ride in his second chariot; and they proclaimed before him, “Bow the knee!” And he set him over all the land of Egypt. Moreover, Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Though I am Pharaoh, yet without your permission no one shall raise his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh named Joseph Zaphenath-paneah; and he gave him Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, as his wife. And Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt.
What Joseph saw in a vision years before has now started to come to past in his present time.
There are so many things that are connected to your vision
And so many people who need you to become who you were born to be just like in your vision.
One person that fulfills their part of God’s plan and another person connecting with another and another and so on.
Yes, this is something much greater and bigger than you can ever imagine.
Genesis 42:5 ESV
Now Joseph was governor over the land. He was the one who sold to all the people of the land. And Joseph’s brothers came and bowed themselves before him with their faces to the ground.
Now for Joseph his vision God gave him is now completed.
The life of your vision awaits your decision to take up the call and walk into your destiny.
This is how God operates in the earth realm by making man/woman but not without a destiny to fulfill.
Now do you see the big picture for your life?
God’s purpose and plans are hidden in every man.
Now is your time to do your part of His plan by chasing after your destiny.
All your answers to life and beyond are found there inside your destiny.
