Habakkuk 2:2 says Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision, And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.
What then happens to a man without vision? The answer is in Proverbs 29:18 – Where there is no vision, my people perish. Today, I want us to look at the story of the man born blind from the spiritual perspective and not just limit our revelation to the story.
This man was born blind from his birth. He was without eyes and it was impossible for him to see. There would have been negative hope of him seeing again so the only thing he could do was to beg to take care of himself. Without vision, we accept anything people give us because we don’t have standard and alternative to better things.
A man without a vision is in darkness and can only get illumination from the light of the world, Jesus. When Jesus saw this man, He did not only give him sight but He also gave him a brand new vision after which He sent him to go and wash himself in the pool called “sent”. Imagine if this man had not met Jesus, he would have remained blind all through his lifetime.
When God gives us vision, he is sending us on assignments. If your vision is meant for you and your family members alone, it is not God-given because God is not selfish and he does not want us to limit the vision given to us.
