Remember your word to your servant,
for you have given me hope. ~Psalm 119:49 (NIV)
The original Hebrew word for "word" in verse 49 is, "dabar" (Strongs 1697) and is used in the following manner(s):
1) speech, word, speaking, thing
b) saying, utterance
c) word, words
d) business, occupation, acts, matter, case, something, manner (by extension)
VISION should not be something we just pull out of a magazine or steal from our neighbor's floor plan! Vision must be GOD spoken, conceived, and breathed (see Genesis 1:26 & 2:7). Neither can we take someone else's Vision or Promise and expect GOD to breathe into it!
VISION is what renews our hope, and strengthens our resolve as changes come about and time continues to pass.
When we are clear about the thing, matter, business God has spoken to us; when we have clearly understood His speech and words concerning our path; VISION becomes effortless, and our efforts become productive, because God's Hand works in concert with ours. And if God is for us......yeah, you know the rest!!!
Where is your VISION??? THIS is your reminder to start the New Season off right: Write the VISION and make it plain! (Habakkuk 2:2)
