I have experienced the power of vision.
In 1999, Perry Noble had a vision for a church that would reach people differently. This church was a God-breathed vision that made him lose sleep at nights and talk endlessly about it. It reached the point of action. Something had to be done about this vision, this dream that he had been given.
We started out in late 1999 meeting in the front room of a farmhouse. Less than 15 people were in attendance, yet Perry was talking about reaching thousands for Christ! In ANDERSON, SC!!! While the thought of reaching thousands seemed to be a fairy tale, Perry KNEW it was a God-inspired vision. So did the rest of us!
Vision. The power of vision. Today, just 7 years later, NewSpring Church is averaging over 7,500 every weekend. Thousands are being reached. Lives are being changed. I never dreamed that I would ever see 214 people come to Christ in one place in one building at the same time! I have now! I never dreamed that I would see 413 people be baptized in one place in one building at the same time! I have now!
Vision is inspiration. It fills the sails with wind. It fuels the fire. It MAKES you do something – you cannot just sit there!
What is your vision for your finances? What is your vision for your family? What is your vision for your life? NEVER be denied. NEVER give up. NEVER let up. NEVER let go.
“Where there is no VISION, the people perish.” Heard that before? Yeah, it’s in the Bible – Proverbs 29:18
