The vision leader must draw a line in the sand – thus far and no further. There must be a “never do” list in every vision leader’s mind. A commitment is made, a line is drawn, and thus a “never” list begins. Here are 7 nevers I have made and live by. You will add to these as your journey necessitates personal conviction.
i. Never allow the world, the flesh, or the devil to shape your vision, for vision shapes destiny.
ii. Never allow smallness of vision to rule your life. (I CHRONICLES 4:9-10)
iii. Never allow those who have no faith to influence you. (HEBREWS 11:1)
iv. Never allow discouragement to dominate your faith in God fulfilling your vision. (MICAH 7:7-8)
v. Never allow circumstances to limit your vision; change your circumstances through faith. (ISAIAH 50:11)
vi. Never allow finances to become the dictator to vision. God is your resource.
vii. Never allow failure to set your course in life. Get up again, try again, and never give up! (MICAH 7:7-8)
