We seem to always talk about our visions but do we ever stop to know God’s vision. What is God’s vision for the world?
1 Timothy 2:4 God will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
The rest of God’s Word is spoken in support of having all men to be saved. Every person Jesus healed were unborn again sinners, but they got a revelation of God’s love. If Jesus raised your baby from the dead, do you think you could ever forget Him? If Jesus healed by the Word of His Father, don’t you think you could trust Him with your life? Knowing what God’s vision for the world is, how interested in God does the world appear to have? Let me answer this for you. Generally speaking, the world can see no need for God! They are content with what they have, the very thought or idea of hell never enters their minds. When I was a sinner I was haunted by the thought of eternity in hell.
Deuteronomy 30:19 I have given you the choice between life and death. Now I call on heaven and earth to bear witness of the choice you make.
This is part of God’s vision for all mankind. Many are under the delusion that they believe fake news, “if God wants me in heaven He will put me there!” How about this one “I’m going to hell to party with my friends!” Far too many people are rejecting God’s vision and they substituted their fantasy in His place. During the days of Noah the people were eating and drinking until the flood came and took them all away. Noah was a preacher of righteousness, he warned all the people but they would not hear him. They could not use ignorance for an excuse because Noah warned them.
Acts 5:12,14 The Apostle Paul worked many miracles and wonders among the people. And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes of men and women.
God is giving people a reason to believe in Him, He is healing all manner of sickness and disease. Jesus spoke the Word, His Father confirmed it, Jesus left no question regarding His integrity. God is not a man that He should lie. God says all men must choose their destiny, some folks think they can take a neutral position and get the best outcome. But God says we must choose between death and life, we must all choose because we have death abiding in us until we do.
John 10:10 The devil has come to kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.
No one can know about the life the Lord has prepared for them because we are not capable of even dreaming that big. If you want to know it you have to live it and it’s far better than anything we could plan far ourselves. If you don’t accept God’s vision for your life you will oppose yourself and you will need to deal with the struggles you create.

Lord You are heaven's bookkeeper, You have a record of every good deed.
And You never forget a seed sown because You are Lord of the harvest.
If I should meet You before I reap, I will my harvest to my family.
For You have taught me Your Word and no one can take it from me. You give me all things richly to enjoy.
