See it as it is, then as it should be.

See, Then Go Out After It

See, Then Go Out After It By Kirk Hunt

But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock,   I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it.”

1 Samuel 17:34–35 NKJV

As a shepherd, David saw and understood the situation.  An apex predator was preparing to eat one of the sheep from his flock.  David also saw with vision the dead lion, then went out after the lamb.

Sight is different than vision.  Sight sees the current facts and data.  As a rational person, you see the circumstances as they are. 

Vision is different than sight.  Vision sees a future set of facts and data.  As a rational person, you see the circumstances as they will be. 

I cannot tell you that your vision is without risk or effort.  In fact, I can guarantee you that your God-given vision will require, at a minimum, figurative blood, sweat and tears.  The Apostles and Prophets (almost all) lost their lives in fulfilling the vision they received from God.

You see a set of facts and data that do not exist yet.  God has sent you that vision in order to guide the work He wants you to accomplish.  The tasks you complete will change the situation and transform you.  See your assignment, then go out after it.

Think:       Go after the vision God gives you.

Pray:         “Lord, give me the strength to go after the vision You give me.”
