00543 - The Dusty Shelf Of Vision

The "dusty shelf of vision" – is where dreams and callings are given by God yet left unattended. Proverbs 16:3 (GNT) says, “Ask the Lord to bless your plans, and you will be successful in carrying them out.” This suggests that the first step is to recommit them to God, seeking His guidance and blessing to revitalise the vision you had from Him.

Dusting off these shelves requires courage. It's about shaking off complacency and stirring up the faith to step into God's plans. As we do, the dust begins to clear, revealing the potential that was there all along.

Remember, there is always time to resurrect a God-given vision. As you remove the cobwebs and step out, you'll find that God’s vision for you is as potent and vibrant today as the day they were first given. The importance then and now is to take that step of faith.


It’s never too late to live out the vision God has given you.


Help me, Lord, to step by faith into your vision for me. Amen.

Action Point

Get some people around you, talk to them about your vision from God, and ask them to pray with you about it.
