GROWTH QUESTION #3What was your most important accomplishment this week?



Habakkuk 2:2-3 (ESV) 2 And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. 3 For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”

INTERACTIVE QUESTIONSWhat do you find interesting about this passage? What promises does God give us about vision in this scripture?
GROWTH PRINCIPLE #1Any area that you want to succeed in, you must first have vision in.
  • If we want to succeed in our marriage, relationship, ministry, business, finances, or our spiritual life, we must first get a vision of God’s desired future for us.

Proverbs 29:18 (KJV) – Where there is no vision, the people perish

  • DEFINITION – Perish: die out, give up, fail, end in ruin, lack discipline or restraint, be discouraged, depressed, and hopeless
  • In every area that we lack vision, we will perish.
INTERACTIVE QUESTIONSWhat is the consequence of not having a vision? What areas of your life have you perished in because you lacked vision?
GROWTH PRINCIPLE #2All who ask God for vision will get it.
  • If we’re not asking, we won’t get the vision.

James 4:2 (NKJV) – …you do not have because you do not ask.

  • God wants to give us vision for our future so it’s okay to ask Him for it.

John 16:13 (NLT) – When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.

INTERACTIVE QUESTIONSWhat does Jesus promise us that the Holy Spirit will do for us?What is an area of your life that you want God to reveal your future in?
GROWTH PRINCIPLE #3To accomplish a vision it must first be written down.
  • In order to accomplish the vision, we need to make it clear on paper first.

Habakkuk 2:2 (ESV) – …Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.

  • This is a command of God. It is a necessary step that we can’t afford to miss.
  • What we write down, we are committing too.
  • If you don’t have the faith to write the vision, you don’t have the faith to accomplish the vision.
  • STAT: Only 3% of people have written goals, and they are 10 times more successful than the 97% combined.
INTERACTIVE QUESTIONSWhy do you think God commands us to write the vision down, rather than just keeping it in our heads?
GROWTH PRINCIPLE #4You’ll never see a vision come to pass that you quit on.
  • Don’t quit on the vision, even if it seems slow.

Habakkuk 2:3 (ESV) – For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”

  • We quit on the vision when we stop believing in the vision, declaring the vision, working on the vision, and praying for the vision.

Luke 18:1 (NLT) – One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up.

  • Be patient with the process.
  • No great vision is accomplished overnight.
  • Every great vision requires endurance and persistence in order to be fulfilled.

Galatians 6:9 (NLT) So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

INTERACTIVE QUESTIONSWhy is this scripture telling us not to give up? What are some of the challenges that you are facing right now that tempt you to give up on the vision or goal?
