If you can’t cast a vision of what could be, you are not qualified to lead. Lindell Mitchell
The implications of today’s thought are powerful. Without a vision of what could be, where will leaders lead?
Solomon claimed that “when there is no vision the people are unrestrained” (Prov. 29:18).
Leaders with vision are able to see the unseen. Perhaps more specifically, they are able to see Him who is unseen. They lead with faith.
They possess the kind of conviction that knows what is worth dying for when it comes to leading the Lord’s people. Caleb possessed conviction (Josh. 14:12).
When vision exists, a strength is demonstrated that knows the value of “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:13).
And above all, vision leads to victory. “Lift up your eyes and look” are the words spoken by God to Abraham (Gen. 13:14) and by Jesus (Jn. 4:35).
Unless we develop the kind of vision needed in leadership, we will miss possessing what God has promised.
Maybe this explains the significance of today’s thought. Are we qualified to lead?
