Obedience to the “Heavenly Vision” of God's Guidance
Acts 26:18-20; Isaiah 50:5; John 15:10
3-10-21, Archives of Oswald Chambers -- If we lose “the heavenly vision” God has given us, we alone are responsible — not God. We lose the vision because of our own lack of spiritual growth. If we do not apply our beliefs and faith about God to the issues of everyday life, the vision God has given us will never be fulfilled.
he only way to be obedient to “the heavenly vision” is to give our utmost for His highest— our best for His glory. This can be accomplished only when we make a determination to continually in obedience remember God’s vision. But the obedience is the acid test to the vision in the details of our everyday life— sixty seconds out of every minute, and sixty minutes out of every hour, not just during times of personal prayer or public meetings.
“Though it tarries, wait for it…” (Habakkuk 2:3). At the very beginning of our born again experience [John 3:3, 7]...
<= when we repented and turned to the Lord Jesus for salvation, we saw the vision; but did not wait for it.
We rushed off to do our practical work, and once what we thought was - vision fulfilled - we could no longer even see it. Waiting for a vision that “tarries” is the true test of our faithfulness to God. It is at the risk of our own soul’s welfare that we get caught up in practical busy-work, only to miss the fulfillment of HIS work.
God plants His saints through the whirlwind of His storms. We must carefully seek God's guidance as we select our spot to be planted. If we try to do it alone we will prove to be unproductive. However, if we allow God to plant us; we'll “bear much fruit” (John 15:8).
It is essential that we live and “walk in the light” of God’s vision for us (1 John 1:7).
