TOPIC: LACK OF PREPARATION, AN ENEMY OF VISION
SCRIPTURE: And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel… For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not. Acts 7:23-25
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Vision without preparation equals frustration.
One of the things many people lose without knowing is their original vision, passion for God and for Kingdom assignment.
From our anchor Scripture, we see that Moses had the understanding of the calling of God at the age of forty; he knew that God was going to use him to bring Israel out of the land of Egypt, but by a series of event, Moses practically lost the vision. He literally turned his back on the assignment of his life and began to roam about visionlessly, keeping the flock of his father-in-law for forty years.
Now, what was behind Moses’ failure in his attempt to fulfil the vision he had?
One of the reasons that made Moses’ vision and passion to die was Lack of Preparation. Moses had the vision and not the preparation so he could not fulfil that vision in his first attempt (Exodus 2:11-15). Between every vision and its manifestation is preparation.
Beloved, if the call of God must produce results in your life, it must follow God’s process. Vision without preparation equals frustration. Where there is no training, there can be no reigning.
Remember this: Vision without preparation equals frustration.
1. Ask the LORD to show you the steps you need to take in order to fulfil your life’s assignment.
2. Avoid taking steps outside God’s direction.
3. Determine not to allow people to clap you into irrelevance; wait for Heaven to celebrate you at the end of your journey.

PRAYER: O LORD, I surrender all to You. Lead me and show me what to do per time in order to fulfil my assignment on earth, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
