The Indisputable Power of Vision-11

While You Wait…

(An Addendum to the series: The Indisputable Power of Vision)

By: Idede Oseyande

“…though it tarries, WAIT for it…”

This addendum became necessary after one of my regular readers asked what should be done while the vision is yet to manifest.

If you recall, patience was said to be essential in the pursuit of a vision, as it takes time for visions, which are like pregnancies, to materialise.

Let’s answer the question with practical examples of David and Joseph.

David was anointed as King by Samuel when he was around 15 years old and he became King in reality at about 30 years of age.

That means it took him 15 years for the vision to come to fruition.

Joseph had his vision when he was only 17 years old and was made a prime minister in Egypt when he was 30 years old!

It took him 13 gruesome years to see his vision fulfilled.

What did both men do while waiting for the vision to materialise?

They kept building capacity!

Capacity here includes personal skills and knowledge or ability to drive the vision.

Also, the Partners and structures that are needed to sustain the vision when it comes to fruition should be made ready during this waiting time.

How do build capacity?

It is through service! If you study the two examples given above, you will notice that they both served different masters dutifully and built capacity in the process before their time to manifest came.

This is why many people fail or crash land after a sudden take-off due to their inability to build the needed partners in progress and capability during their waiting time.

Don’t let opportunities pass you by, start building capacity today through selfless services!
