Word of the Day: MY OLD AGE SHALL NOT CRY {Part 2}


This is a continue further in out series of exposition on reason why a lot of people get to a stage in life where there are supposed to be comfortable, seat down and enjoy the fruit of their labour but unfortunately; the reverse is the case.(Read Part 1 Here) When many think back in time they are full of regrets and bitterness. The message is not to condemn or make anybody feel bad; it is a message of awareness that will trigger you to make amends where necessary and to guide you appropriately to greatness, such that you will fulfil destiny and you will not have an old age of tears. I Decree into your life; The Power of God Shall walk back to your Past and make repairs where necessary; I pray the grace of God shall sustain you and deliver you destiny into Greatness in the name Jesus. Throughout the days of your life you shall not weep in the name of Jesus.

10 Determining Factors that may cause your Old Age To Cry {Continuation}

Factor 2:        Lack of  Vision
Another determining factor that makes people regret at their old age is when they do not sit down at their early stage and have a vision.
What is Vision?
Vision the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination, wisdom and inspiration.
"Where there is no vision, the people perish . . .” {Proverbs 29:18}
v Vision is what we see, but it is also the way in which we see
v Vision is a roadmap to greatness.
v Vision is a unique positive idea.
v Vision is a unique positive blueprint of you future.

A lot of people are going about their life as it comes; no many have a plan for their life.
God has a plan for everyone; a blueprint is available; God has deposited in everybody’s life something that is very unique; something that will make you Great; but you need to discover it.
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."{Jeremiah 29:11}
How wonderful will it be? if everyone can sit down have a vision and frequently and think about it to see if you are moving close.
Don’t just live your life; have an aspirational; have something you would like to achieve or accomplish in a short or long-term future. Courses of action.
Facts about Vision
o  A man without a vision is a man without a future.
o  Vision is the bridge between the present and the future.
o  Regardless of your Age; Having a vision now can still help you repair the damages of the past.
o   Vision gives pain a purpose
Illustration Story
Consider the example of a young man who has just graduated from high school and joins the military. As soon as he steps off the boot camp bus, the sergeant starts yelling at him. He has to march over to the barbershop and get his head shaved. Then he is up early in the morning to exercise with someone screaming at him and talking about his mother. Just a month before, he was in high school. He would have never put up with any of this nonsense from his teachers or classmates. But somehow his whole mindset has changed. Why? He is enduring the “cross” so to speak, because of the joy on the other side of it. He realizes that boot camp is preparing him for a greater destiny. His vision of the future is giving his present physical discomfort meaning and purpose.

No Pain No Gain
The secret to true greatness lies in the ability to articulate a clear vision of what you can achieve.
You are never quite a man until you have discovered our true life mission
Our vision determines your destiny. When you can see what is possible and believe that it can come to pass, it makes you capable of doing the impossible.
 People of Vision:
v Joseph in the Bible Joseph had a vision and even after many years and tribulation he did not forget his vision. He did not say because of what happening to him he will compromise. Many have settled for the less of their vison only because they were not able to persist or be patient yet a little longer; therefore they have shortchange themselves; many have married the wrong wife, choose the wrong jobs and the likes; stick to your vision.
