Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalm 27:13 (KJV); I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
One of the divine principles of vision is that faith precedes vision. The instruction in our theme scripture is that if you believe, you will see.
This is the wisdom on which dreams and destinies are built.
Why do some dreams die midway their fulfilment? Why do some visions collapse on the way to greatness?
You may have grand plans for the future: plans for your ministry, your career, your business or any other pursuit. It is a good thing to have vision for without vision the people perish(Proverbs 29:18). However, vision does not stand alone. You must believe.
Faith is the guarantee that no matter how rough circumstances get, you will stick to the vision.
Faith is the reason the Psalmist does not faint when everything around him was telling him to give up.
Faith will keep you focused on the prize.
Great visions can fail but great faith never fails.The greater the faith, the stronger the vision.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Faith precedes vision. Great visions can fail but great faith never fails.The greater the faith, the stronger the vision.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. I embrace it and run with it as my reality. I am a child of faith and live by it in everything that I do. I look to the future grounded in the blessed assurance that I will finish well. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
