Clarity Produces Vision by Pastor Shawn Bouldin

Proverbs 29:18 amp

Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man]--blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.

Why Vision?

Brings growth, production, action, purpose!!!

Out of all the words, truths God chose vision in His word…..

Things die without Godly revelation

No path without God

All have questions ::::Where did I come from???

What is my purpose???

Where am I going???

TRUTH is: God’s word answers all 3 questions.

GOOD NEWS is: Jesus came to establish his church to give ALL people truth and direction. ……And vision.

READ “Road to Emmaus”

Luke 24:13-27

vs 31

v 44-49

This account says: Eyes were opened,…… they had understanding

Expand on didn’t recognize him…goatee…change clothes?

Were consumed with recent events

Allowed life’s circumstances to dictate their mood.

“I thought he was the one…”

Had no clarity and lost the vision…….!

As Christians, the Lord wants us to have vision and clarity so that we know where we where we came from, who we are and where we are going. God is a God of order!!

He has given us the greatest promise greatest hope = eternal life

>>>>Vision speaks of future, clarity speaks of present.

Before vision you need clarity.

Vs 44…word

Clarity about the present

Word of God brings Clarity to the present.

Clarity in the present, determines your future.

Clarity brings :

confidence

strength

direction

power

knowledge

JOKE: have you ever been in a room full of drunk people? Clarity gives you the edge!!!

Clarity produces vision

Vision produces actions

Actions produce lifestyle

Lifestyle produces destiny

Member here recently was going thru a season, had enough, said he woke up from a nightmare. Job, heart, thinking, schedule, rigors of life. God gave him tremendous clarity, now he is a new man!

Clarity is the starting point

Vision is the path

Actions are the vehicle

Lifestyle is the journey

Destiny is the legacy

Without vision people perish

Clarity gives you insight on your surroundings. Behaviors, thoughts, habits, people in your life…..

Clarity allows you to see big picture

Barton Springs story: got our kids out of there!!!

BIG PICTURE:

Jesus confirmed ALL that was written for 1,000s of years…..then cast vision

With the Lord, Seek God above all else word is in your heart. You see the things that he sees, that break his heart. So that YOU can make WISE choices.

Clarity about the past

Our past doesn’t shape our future.

It helps, for instance, a diploma or degree, or wisdom, education, common sense

Where our heart is today, determines our future.

I believed in Christ when I was a boy, but today I choose to follow

I was married to Amanda Bouldin 13 years ago, but today I choose to be devoted to her and choose her as my bride.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Religion looks at the past.

Humanity looks to the past.

Jesus is not on the cross anymore!!

Jesus is RISEN. He IS RESURRECTED AND ALIVE AND WELL TODAY

Hebrews 6:6 says When we allow compromise to come into our lives, we put Jesus back on the cross.

Jesus didn’t come to earth and die for us so that we would struggle with sin.

He overcame it, conquered it giving it no power…..giving us power!

The peril of not progressing gives the devil power, it breeds confusion, disorder, dysfunction,

You may have things spoken over your life that have brought defeat,

I am here to say that a life in Christ brings freedom and victory and fullness!!

HE Makes you a new creation and breathes new life into your life.

Clarity about future

Romans 15:4 (NKJV)

4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.

What are you working towards? What are your goals?

Finances? family? Freedom? Ministry goals?

Ask any pro athlete, what is your goal? Gold medal, superbowl ring…..

Paul says… 1 Corinthians 9:24 run in such away to win the prize.

We need Vision so that when the rigors of life come, we are able to grind it out.

The Lord is the author, perfector and finisher of our faith

The beginning, the life, the resurrection

Was, is and is yet to come.

story of daughter climbing up mountain, pouting the whole way

.” Don’t miss the blessings that are behind, here and in front of you.”

Close:

John 3:16

God: the greatest

So loved: the greatest depth

The world: the greatest scope

That He gave: the greatest action

His only Begotten: the greatest gift

That whosoever: the greatest invitation

Believes: the greatest simplicity

In Him: the greatest truth

Should not perish: the greatest outcome

But have eternal life: the greatest promise.

The greatest life ahead is in the future.
