Have you been thinking and searching how you can discover and apply God’s plan for your life and ministry?
The Power of Vision is the key.
Vision is a challenging life-long assignment. Without vision, life will be full of confusion.
The need to understand the Power of Vision can never be overemphasized – whether personally or corporately. Every time vision is acquired, light is acquired. Transformation, excellence and beauty will emerge.
It’s a dangerous thing to be without vision in life. The power of vision is the power that activates the manifestation of desired expectations from the realm of the invisible.
