In the cycle of life, we have to learn to crawl before we can walk. This process has been used metaphorically time and time again about the necessity of starting small before growing into something larger, embracing new beginnings and grassroots efforts before we experience the burgeoning success we desire.
This week's blog will take a different perspective- you will be encouraged to learn to walk in your in your vision before it comes to pass. In other words, learn to walk before you crawl. Great visionaries have the ability to "see" a thing before it becomes a reality. From that vision, prototypes are made, creative brainstorming sessions are set, ideas begin to flow towards the possibility of the vision coming to fruition. The mind's eye visualizes every aspect.
When we ask ourselves the questions of who are we and what do we want, we have to "see" ourselves becoming that person, actualizing that dream, "walking" around in that building we want for the new business we develop. Some visionaries take it a step further by literally walking on the property or land they want to claim.
In Mark Batterson's book, The Circle Maker, he shares insight on the legend of a Jewish sage who prayed bold prayers for the vision he believed in. Batterson teaches us to draw prayer circles around our dreams and God's promises. He states that, "The greatest moments in life are the miraculous moments when human impotence and divine omnipotence intersect-and they intersect when we draw a circle around the impossible situations in our lives and invite God to intervene." When we pray, we pray in faith believing that if it is God's will, we will have what we ask. By faith, we see it and we start "walking" in what we see.
What do you want? Healing for a sick child? Peace in your mind? An open door of opportunity? Learn to walk in what you believe. Become that person you admire. See yourself creating the life you want. Learn to walk!
