Day 22: When Big Visions Aren’t Materializing

Have you ever felt like you were shown something that would happen, a big vision? Have you sensed that you were supposed to do something, but then nothing seemed to happen with it? This can be frustrating. After a while, it’s easy to give up, forget about it and get on with your life.

What I’m learning is that while that “nothing is happening” there really is something going on that probably doesn’t involve you directly. God is sending His angels to prepare the way. Sometimes that means getting other people involved, lining up resources and orchestrating things that are going to be needed. And what’s going on with you? You’re most likely being prepared to become the person capable of receiving the vision.

When the children of Israel were being led to their promised land, Jehovah told them, “Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.” Exodus 23:20

Often times, we believe it’s all on us to make our big vision a reality, but it isn’t. Whatever God does is always bigger than we think. Big things require more people than just you. And what God originates, He orchestrates. Here’s an example from my own life and from the Light the World movement.
