A Man of Consequence: Vision & Faith

 

What constitutes a person of consequence? By consequence, I mean a person of relevance and purpose. I see three key components worth emulating I want to share with you over a 3-part series. I will use the term ‘man’ throughout this series in a non-gender context… Let’s go!

Vision and Faith

A man of consequence is a person of vision. He sees what others don’t. Vision is the ability to see the invisible and perceive opportunities where others see difficulty.
A man of vision realises he only has a window of opportunity to create the change he wants to see. That’s because he sees that window! And sometimes, he creates the window if necessary!!

Vision will change your outlook to life because it gives you a reason to live a purposeful life. People of vision determine how they live – life does not dictate for them. But vision brings with it huge responsibility. I have never seen a person of vision who is idle; vision keeps you usefully busy.

Vision is not enough. Vision makes you see but faith makes you move. Faith is the engine that sets vision in motion.
Vision and faith are twin brothers; vision sees with the eyes of faith hidden things others cannot perceive. Faith develops with vision. There’s no vision without faith. The greatest of all vision needs faith to be accomplished. Faith brings true vision to reality by holding fast to divine promises in times of difficulty.

How much faith do you have in your vision?

Further Reading:
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
(1 Corinthians 9:24-27 ESV)
