Vision or Ambition?

Vision is not the same as ambition. Although, ambition can make you a multi-millionaire just as vision can, there are added benefits you tend to enjoy as a visionaire instead of an ambitionaire?
Firstly, in the realm of vision, your safety is guaranteed as well as your success. If you’re working as a visionaire and still going through tough times, it is because, “A great door and effectual is open unto me, but there are many adversaries”{1 Corinthians 16:9}. Your enemies will only try to stop you after perceiving your glorious future but since you’re waking according to God’s purpose for your life, they will never succeed because stopping you, is the same as stopping God.
For every creation, there is a purpose for it and this is only made known in the realm of vision. This is the major reason for failure in life as people resort to their earthly and fleshly ambitions instead of walking according to God’s purpose for them and you know when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable.
God once gave Jonah a vision to go into the land of Nineveh to preach but he ran away from it for the satisfaction of his own personal ambitions. This almost led to his death and the death of other innocent travellers because ignoring vision doesn’t only puts you at risks, it also make you a risk. But at the end of the day when he had repented, he was ushered into the realm of sweatless success as he did in one day what could have taken him three days to do. Jonah’s ministry remains one of the most successful because an entire city fasted alongside all the beast in the land due to his ministry.

Don’t you ever underestimate the power of divine agenda because those who hold fast to it are never forsaken.

Requirements of Vision

The discovery of God’s plan for your life, is not the point of your success in life but rather, it is just the beginning of the journey to success. After the discovery of God’s plan, there are some basic requirements you need in order to convert it into success and they are:

YOU RUN: “…write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” {Habakkuk 2:2} Vision is for runners. If you allow your vision run you, you will be ruined. After the discovery of what God wants you to be, your next duty is to work towards it as an individual with the exceeding grace of God upon your life. In the race of vision, overtaking is allowed. You don’t look at your present condition or those around you to determine when to start running because if you do not start now, you might miss it “…for the vision is yet for an appointed time…”{Habakkuk 2:3}

YOU PLAN: Everybody plans. Even those who are not planning, plan also. Those who fail to plan are planning to fail. After the discovery of your vision, it is now your duty to map out a strategy on how to get there factfully, thoughtfully and prayerfully, hence Jesus said, “Which of you intending to build a tower sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost whether he be able to finish it? Lest happily, after he had laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him.”{Luke 14:28-29}. So if you do not plan, you remain a prank waiting to be laughed at. Until your dream is bigger than you, it is not yours. To plan effectively, you must acknowledge your assets, your liabilities and most importantly the assets of your caller [God]. Bishop Oyedepo said, “If you can think enough, what you have is enough to set out with”.
