“And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” ~ Hab. 2:2
Who do you hangout with the most? What are they like and who is your closest friend?
What do your close friends live for? Do they each have a good vision? What are they doing with it?
If you lack vision so to speak, then look up first..yeah, with the right address attached..to the Father in the Name of Jesus.
Look to the one who gives em out.
Then look around and then inside of yourself (I know that sounds kinda New Age, but I'm primarily talking to reborn Christ-followers here. If you are not yet one, you can become one now for Jesus Christ is the greatest gift. Who or what better could you have in your vision?).
Draw on your natural giftings, talents, and non-sinful-desires.
Yes, look to your Lord and your calling, believer. Got one with real lucidity that addresses practical needs? Is it really crystal clear yet?
If you don't think you have one yet, if you don’t sense a vision of your own, then please consider hooking up with the top Leader and leaders whose good vision resonates with you. Become a partner with em if you will.
That’s what Walt Disney’s brother, Roy, did. He was a good businessman and leader who could make things happen, but Walt provided the vision. It was an earthly vision rather than a spiritual one, but it was a goal. And together, they made a team and together they made a dream come true. As a kid I always enjoyed going to their dream spot in SoCal with my family. Fun place.
Now what if you partnered with a spiritual believer with a ministry vision that helped people better serve here and also helped people into heaven? Wouldn't that be so great? facebook.com/shareJesus

Think about what the change will be like, believer. It's kinda like a rain-soggy driftwood lean-two-hippie-shack on a neglected beach next to a well-kept pristine sprawling Estate in Bel-Air...
The Apostle Paul said, "For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands." 2 Cor. 5:1
Live for Christ. His vacation plan is outta this world. Humbly come to Him with your problems right now. He knows how to fix em all.
The Lord is more interested in what you can become than in what or where you currently are. Ya know He can change anyone. He’s more interested in your standing now and in your future, than He is in your history. Yup, God’s not interested in your power, work position or popularity, but He is interested in your person and potential – wants to give you a winsome Christ-like personality.

Your life matters and has a purpose ..even when it doesn't seem like it ..so opt for faith and order instead of chaos and doubts regarding God's holy character.
Your story of faith is W A Y important—wanna hear it! How has your relationship with God through Christ made a difference?
Your dreams count..... unless they're from spicy hot dogs and pizza. Your walk of faith all tight with the Lord really REALLY counts. Why let your changing feelings, impressions, untested dreams, or feelings direct your life?
Your voice matters—lift it up "..like a trumpet" (Isa. 58.1), and don't be tearin' people down or trash-talkin'.
You were born to make a significant impact, so be devoted to the God of the Bible.. on His terms ..rather than on your own terms! The people of this world, who don't yet know the joy of salvation, radically need the simple Gospel that you have to offer them.
Faith and faith-confessions from the Bible-belt area simply don't deliver miracles; God does that in response to biblical faith. We focus and live all-out for Him rather than for them..but miracles from Him ain't bad. Yes, the moment you talk to God about the needs of people around you; this could literally set His angels and bona fide miracles into motion. But remember that the greatest miracle the Lord pulls off is regenerating a dead human spirit when they turn to and trust in Jesus.
Think about those Egyptian magicians back in Mo's day. They could only mimic three of God’s miracles that came through Moses—staffs turned into serpents (Ex. 7:11), water turned to blood (7:22), and the frog plague (8:7).
Unable to mimic the remaining plagues (8:16–11:10), the magicians came up short and acknowledged that those were from “the finger of God” (8:19). The enemy still wants worship (really illegitimately craves it) and to distract people, so he still mimics God and disguises himself. He “masquerades as”, “dressing up as a beautiful angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14-15 msg)—he’s such a poser. facebook.com/shareJesus

I know that folks get hurt. Perhaps they’ve hurt you as well. Sorry ‘bout that! Perhaps they’ve been shady for a really long time (bad choices piled high..), and they might never change. Many sadly don’t.. though they've had multiple opportunities to. No need to look down at, talk down to, or aid them in their wrong-doin’s and shadiness. If you don't you’re actually better off, and you know at least what you’re really dealing with.
Don’t throw down your pearls (much more valuable-precious and more personal than bags of cheap corn seed they like to walk on) before spiritual-swine ..so to speak (ya know what I mean..). They like to bite, to trample, to rend, to slice, to shred, and can be very dangerous. Have empathy, pray hard, use discernment, but I want you safe and in God's peace rather than burned out as a real enabler.
Jesus warned, “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces" (7.6matt.bible). See photo.

Did you know that thunder and lightning happen at the exact same time but light travels faster than sound does.

Ask that God will help them each take the time for prayer and study in the Bible (very important) so that God's truth is illuminated to em and doesn't come off as dry, dead, fruitless, or even seem mundane. God's Spirit can easily handle that.
Ask that God will continue to use them to plant, water and harvest seeds of truth from Him - you know how people still need Jesus far more than religion, local churches, and man's organizations. Ask in faith that they will enjoy God's mighty power daily, His holy passion inside, and abundant provision for the work.. no matter the circumstances they are facing.
Ask that they will hear from the Lord and have some spiritual backbone to keep living and telling the truth regardless of the opposition and outcome.

God says go tell. “Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:9
