Acts 26:19 (NKJV)
“Therefore, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision,

God speaks to us through His Word and through visions and dreams. Heavenly vision, as recounted by the Paul the Apostle, has the power to:

  1. Stop you
    When you find God’s perfect will for your life, it will stop you dead in your tracks. As Paul stopped in his tracks when He encountered a heavenly vision (Acts 26:12-15), something happens to you when you find God’s purposes for your life. Heavenly visions are not just available to the holy; they are also available to the hungry.The will of God is much simpler than we often make it to be. He shows us his will through visions and dreams. Any time God is going to change a person, family, community, or nation, He starts from the inside. It starts with the seed that has been deposited by God in someone’s heart. If they will nurture it and believe in it, they will begin to live a life of purpose and destiny.

  2. Send you.
    As Jesus sent Paul (Acts 26:16), heavenly vision will send you into God-ordained places, spaces, and relationships.

  3. Strengthen you.
    Heavenly vision provides supernatural strength which allows us press on towards God’s plans and purposes for us. Jesus was able to endure the cross because of the joy set before him--the dream of restoring your relationship to God. The word “prophesy” means to “pro” “see” -- to see what is ahead, to see what God sees. Can you see God’s vision for your future? The vision may be unseen, but it outweighs the current reality. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. – 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (ESV)

Action Item: Pray and ask God to reveal his heavenly vision for your life.
