CHAPTER 7: VISION
“Where there is no vision, the people perish”
Once you realize your God-given purpose, you should start to have a vision. A vision is the first step toward turning your motivation into inspiration. I‘m not talking about what the American Indians call a vision quest. What I mean by vision is a mental picture of what you will be doing to fulfill your purpose. A person with a vision sees down the road. He can sense what it will be like six weeks, six months, a year, two years, five years, ten years and more ahead.
So how do you get a vision? Call to mind your purpose and try to imagine a way or a few possible ways in which this purpose can be fulfilled. To refer once more to my novel, if you read it, I‘m sure you can recall Pilate‘s wife, Portia‘s constant insistence that he could take over Herod‘s territory. That was because, having sensed her husband‘s purpose, to rule, she got a vision of the extension of that rule and then went to work to achieve it by first by trying to get her husband to have the same vision and then by writing letters to Caesar. Of course that plan eventually failed but it was probably because she was unable to keep it at the forefront of her husband‘s mind for long enough.
