When you see what you are born to do in pictures, that’s the purpose for your life.
Your work is the source of your vision.
Purpose is more important than your plans.
The male is defined by his work. That’s why when a male losses his job, he loses his sanity.
But remember, your work (calling) is different from your job.
Know your work before your find a woman.
Your worth is in your work, not from a woman.
When a man doesn’t have an awareness of his work, he feels worthless.
A man’s work makes him valuable.
Relationship between woman and work
1. You’re supposed to already know your vision for life before you marry a woman.
The woman is supposed to meet you with two things: work and God’s presence.
2. The woman was created to help the man.
If someone is coming to help you, you must be doing something.
Everything a woman has – intellect, ideas, intuition, just for you!
3. A woman comes equipped. You’re threatened by a woman because you have no project to work on.
A woman needs a male’s work to be fulfilled.
Remember work = vision/calling.
A helper comes to help you, and thus you need someone just as strong or stronger to help you with your work.
Men consider women a threat, because they have no work for her.
The first question a woman should ask is, where are we going?
What are we going to do together.
Work before woman
Vision before woman
Assignment before woman.
Let your woman meet you in your work.
When a man has found his work, he secures the peace of a woman.
Because a woman comes to help, and you’re doing nothing, they help themselves and start theirs.
Your wife is waiting for something – a plan.
A female is an incubator. Whatever you give a woman, she multiplies.
You give her sperm, she gives you a baby
Groceries – food
House – home.
You give her frustration, she gives you hell!
The woman is frustrated by a man who doesn’t know his vision.
Be honest with yourself that you don’t know what you’re doing, and find your assignment, your work, your calling!
The most important discovery for a male is his work.
If you know where you’re going, you have passion and security.
You should never marry a woman if you don’t know where you’re going.
She came to help you, but help you with what?!
A woman needs you to have a vision for her sanity
Vision is more important than the person.
Yes, you’re a good man, but do you have a vision?
Do you have a 50 year plan for your family?
Vision is not private, even though is personal.
Vision is key to discipline, self control.
If you have no vision, you can be led by anyone.
Vision is purpose when you can see it. It is the manifestation of your purpose. Vision is purpose in technicolor.
Believe what you’re dreaming.
Vision is the preview of your finished picture. Vision is seeing yourself as God sees you in the end.
God wants you to have sight, but never live by your sight.
The enemy of vision is sight.
Sight is the function of the eyes, vision is the function of your heart.
Don’t trust your eyes.
Vision is the source of confidence.
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
Joel 2:28-29 KJV
What is the purpose of the Holy Spirit?
If you’re old, he’ll give you back your dream;
If you are young, he gives you a vision.
Evidence that the Holy Ghost is in you, it’s a clear vision for your life.
A dream is a vision that cannot come to pass in your life time. It is passed on to the next generation.
When you’re young, it is a vision – you can complete it in your life time.
When a man tells a woman his vision, she incubates it. And every time she sees him, she tells him back what she told him.
Don’t tell her to shut up, she’s doing her job.
The purpose of the spirit is to restore his dream and vision.
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
Isaiah 46:9-10 KJV
Your birth is evidence that there is something already finished that you were born to start.
God will show you your end from your beginning.
That is what it means to prophesy!
The distance between what you see and where you are, is the plan.
Show her what you have at the end, and tell her to help you get there.
Go home, get your dream on paper and tell your wife to stay with you long enough to see it come to pass.
Tell her, “We’ll travel around the world together. You’ll have your own private jet. Stay with me, baby.”
Never judge a man by his beginning. The beginning is always small. The end is always greater than the beginning.
You don’t believe until you start talking about it.
You can tell a vision is from God – it makes you look like a fool. If they believe you the first time you tell them, then it is not from God.
Every vision has one believer first. Sometimes you have to convince your spouse. Once you’ve seen it, it takes over your life.
If they don’t think it’s crazy, it’s not a vision yet.
Enjoy where you are because it’s not permanent. It’s temporary!
