Vision and Enlargement

Mentality determines reality. What does not cross you mind cannot cross your life. Even when it comes by accident, it disappears because you’re not expecting it, and do not know how to deal with it.


In Gen 13:15 God told Abraham, “as far as your eyes can see, I shall give unto you.”

How big do you dream?

How does vision bring about enlargement? This is why you need to have a vision for your life, and for other goals.
What occupies your heart determines what you attract into your life. The size of vision determines both the size of your plan and the size of action. A big vision produces a big plan, and big action.
Vision is the fuel of speed. Habakkuk 2:2
What a man sees determines what God gives.
Vision is a department of faith. Faith is a tool for enlargement. You cannot have faith and not have vision!
Vision brings wisdom and wisdom brings enlargement. Men of vision in the bible were men of wisdom, and by this they experienced enlargement in their lives.
Vision moves with wisdom, visionary people are wise people, and by the frequency of their vision, they begin to take boundaries.

Guard your Heart and Mind


Prov 4:23
Keep the heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues

The heart and mind operate like a spiritual magnet. When a criminal moves into a place, he identifies other criminals. A person will attract resources, opportunities and personalities that are in line with what occupies his heart. Vision attracts not just provision, but opportunities and provision. When you have largeness of heart, largeness emerges around him. It is not possible to live a big life with a small mind. You cannot see a mega outcome with micro insight. A person’s life moves in the direction of their most dominant thought or vision. David’s vision was to bring down Goliath. He had no idea how to do it, but the vision was that This Giant Must Come Down.

So God showed David an opportunity on the forehead of Goliath. While everyone saw Goliath as too big to bring down, David saw him as too big to miss. The vision that occupies your heart determines what God will cause your eyes to see.
1 Samuel 17:40 The stone that killed Goliath was not imported, it was lying right by him. And it was not far from where Goliath was. Your answers answers are always close to problems.


In Exodus 4:14, when the Lord was calling Moses to lead the Israelites out of bondage, the Lord just needed Moses to accept the vision, although Moses complained about being a stammerer. The Lord provided Aaron, who already was on his way to Moses.

Write the vision, make it plain.

Don’t think of the budget first, think of the vision.

Use scriptures to paint BIG pictures of your expectation. Use the word of God to think big. That begins with spiritual vision, the number of souls to win, how much money to pump into the work of the Lord, etc.


Take time to plan out your course of action. Write the vision and make is plain. What does it take to actualize this vision? What does it take to move from where I am to where I need to go?
Act massively and promptly. That He may run that reads it.

But it must be founded on the spiritual. Your bearing in life is taken from your spiritual bearing. This year shall be your best yet.

This was culled from a sermon I listened to on Sunday. I usually write out all my posts based on what I’m learning from the Lord, but this was a perfect follow up from yesterday so I decided to share.

Purple is my favorite color and my favorite scripture is Jeremiah 32:27 which says "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?"

  1. I like this, especially where you said “what does not cross your mind cannot cross your life” and the bit about the criminal immediately finding like persons to hang out with as soon as he moves to the neighborhood. I spoke to a former drug addict once, and she told me much the same thing about her drug problem. She had licked it, but said that if at anytime she went anywhere and wanted to do drugs she would be able to find those people who did drugs and get drugs. She told me that was why she changed her whole life and didn’t do anything that was like what she used to do that was the only way she could make sure she wasn’t tempted. I think that no matter what a person’s sin is or their virtue they can find people who share it. The same goes for a dream, there are always people who will be “lit on fire” by the dream of another and want to be in that dream with them. This was a great post because you never know as a Christian at any point what God’s larger plan is for you. If someone had ever told me 20 years ago that I would enjoy listening to pastors preach on the radio, or be a Bible Study leader, or Sunday School Teacher, or any of those things, or that my faith would have grown as much as it has….I would have had a hard time believing it (probably would have told them they were crazy just over the listening to radio preaching alone!)…..I am really curious to see what God has in mind from here on out for me! God’s plan is much more exciting and broader for each of us than we can ever conceive of, if we just hand our lives over to him to lead! Really a nice blog entry. Enjoyed it a lot!

    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this!

      It’s so nice to know that at every stage of our lives, we still are able to dream about what God has for our lives in the future. Till the day we meet Jesus at the end of our lives, we always know that the next adventure with Him certainly will be better than the last one. I think that’s pretty amazing.

      I also like the bit where you spoke about the drug addict, and I always wonder how we manage to find like minded people like us, whether we’re good or bad, but I guess the laws of attraction have no boundaries.

      Thank you for sharing your insight again, and wow! You do all that? Kudos to our in house Sunday school teacher, and bible study leader!

      • Thanks, I just try to do whatever God directs me to do. I think of it as continual on the job training, since I don’t know what the next assignment is that he will want me to do. I have learned a lot that way, and learning is one of the things I enjoy the most in life.
