“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above.”  Jas 1:17 NKJV

If your vision in life is to become as rich as possible, hoard every penny you make, and indulge your every whim—your vision is not from God. But if your vision is to succeed, use your success to bless others, and fulfill the purposes of God in the earth, your vision is from God. When God called Abraham, He promised him three things: “I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing [to others]” (Ge 12:2 NIV). Understand this: Every worthy vision comes from God whether or not it’s related to so-called “spiritual” matters, and whether or not the person with the vision realizes the source of their vision. The Bible says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” We tend to compartmentalize our lives, to view God as having influence and relevance when it comes to “spiritual” visions, missions, and goals, but little relationship to “secular” visions, missions, and goals. St. Augustine said, “Let every Christian understand that wherever truth is found, it belongs to his Master.” God is the fountain of all truth, and the source of all worthy visions. And since He gave you your vision you must pour yourself into it every day. The Psalmist said, “Let the Lord be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity [success] of His servant” (Ps 35:27 NKJV). With God as your partner you must expect to succeed—and you will!
