This is the first article that I wrote back in 2005. I found it while searching through papers. It really blessed me because God has manifested himself in many ways that my eyes have not seen and my ears have not heard and I didn't even imagine in my heart that which He made ready and kept ready for me until the time of the divine appointment.
The Vision You Can’t See
Ladies and Gentlemen, announcing the one and only, the great work of God, marvelously and wonderfully made. You! Who me? Yes, You! A vessel that has been fashioned by God, with greatness as a precious jewel, lying deeply embedded within, that is rich and curiously made. Take time to research who you are and what you possess within as you carry the Word of God. Please understand, that you are not on this planet by accident or a mere random occurrence of birth. There is a purpose and plan for you life. You are a reservoir, holding much to be released.
CHOSEN – For those of you who are a part of the RF (remnant factor), people who are reserved for special purpose at the appropriate time. God knew you and formed you in the belly before you came out of the womb. (Jeremiah 1:5). Please be advised that you are a chosen instrument, a part of an elite force, that He has separated and ordained for His purpose, not yours! He knew you in the spirit before you were wrapped in flesh. To know you, is to be intimate with you, meaning that He walked and talked with you, giving you specific instructions. As He is the Creator, there is treasure that he placed within you that you are not even aware of.
ANNOUNCEMENT – Study to be quiet. Lean to keep the secrets that God gives you! That is why it is called a secret. He will only trust you with what he knows that you can handle. Just to let you know, everybody in the Body of Christ is not for you. Let’s be real! If you want to test the waters, share that secret vision that God gave you about what He was going to do and see what happens. Remember Joseph shared his dreams with his brothers and ended up in the pit, although God made a way to the palace. The secret, the promise is unto you for you to add to your faith, “that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:5). You must understand that there are dream catchers and dream busters. Dream catchers will listen and steal your dream and run with it before you know it. Dream busters will speak all the impossibilities of the manifestation, sowing seeds of doubt into your mind that will eventually drop into the womb of your heart, if you allow your ears to continue to tune into the frequency of their mouth. Carry the vision in your heart until the appointed time to birth, to release it into the atmosphere. Remember Paul and some of the things that he saw, which could not be spoken. (2 Corinthians 12:4).
ENCOURAGEMENT – Don’t look for it. It will not come from your brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ, or even your Pastor. If it does, great. But remember it is your vision, your responsibility. You have to encourage yourself by holding on to the vision that God gave you no matter what it looks or feels like. Keep it before the gates of your eyes and ears, knowing in your heart that it shall come to pass. In 1 Samuel 30:6, after David went through a great trial, the word says, “but David encouraged himself in the Lord, his God.” This is just the beginning, the tip of the iceberg of your destiny. Add “keep the fire in and on my faith” to your job description.
REJOICE – Hallelujah! It is here! Praise the Lord! Glory to God! You have given birth to the vision. Stop. Look. Listen. Are you the only one giving praise for the blessing? Now watch this. Many will rejoice with a stranger, who they do not know, rather than rejoice with you, whom they know, and saw every step of the trial of your faith that it took to birth the vision. Do we lack the knowledge in knowing that if we rejoice in another man’s blessing, adding our praise and worship with his, that as it goes up, the Father will smell the scent of fragrance of not only our lips, but our heart. Could it be the seed that is needed as you are in expectation for an uncommon harvest? As we know God is no respecter of persons. (Act 10:34). If He did it for you, then He can do it for me.
FULFILLMENT – Have you ever though that the lord is coming back for the vision that He placed within you? Recently I heard a message that made me realize that I cannot afford to waste His time and gifts. In Matthew 25, that parable of the talents, examines how we must be prepared to execute the tasks (gifts) that are entrusted to us that produce results (fruit) for the Kingdom.
In 1999, I published my first book, “The Three E’s of Faith: Examine, Exercise, and Elevate.” Not exactly and easy topic to start with for one’s first publication. As I have stayed on the potter’s wheel, the process has produced three other books. Last year the seed (thought), came to me about writing articles. It dropped into my heart (womb) and what you are reading is the second step of faith utilizing and multiplying that which have been entrusted with. It is important that we be diligent in seeking the treasures in the realm of the spirit that the Father has hidden for our use as vessels, so that they will be manifested in the natural. Be faithful with what has been entrusted to you. Let Him see you “doing”. After He has completed the forming and filling, let it flow. After all, you are God’s expression on the earth.
“Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.”
