In our theme verse, Peter reiterated the words of the prophet in Joel 2:28. Notice that the prophet didn’t say, “God shall show your young men visions”; rather, God’s Word through the prophet was, “…your young men shall see visions….” This is different from God supremely granting us visions and revelations, realities of the Spirit that He unveils to us; we’re to consciously, with our spirits, see visions. It’s part of the blessings the Church is to experience in these last days.
You can actually practise seeing visions; visions of your blessed life in Christ; visions of your triumphant and victorious life, and walk in the love, power and righteousness of Christ! If visions of fear, death, sickness, poverty and failure come to you, reject them; then switch your mind immediately to the realities of God’s Word and refocus; reprogramme or realign yourself to see the right visions.
When you practise this, you’ll be amazed at what God will do in your life. It’s actually interesting to note that once you’re born again, it’s the first thing He trains you to do. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold (see) , all things are become new.” The word, “behold” is the Greek “idou”; it’s akin to the Hebrew word, “kazar,” which means to look and see with the eyes of a prophet. The Spirit, through the Apostle Paul, wants you to see the right vision of who you are in Christ, now that you’re born again: see that you have a new life.
See that you’re a success. See that you’re prospering, walking in health, strength, and victory! See that you’re righteous, holy, perfected in Him, and beloved of Him. See that you’re the carrier, as well as the effulgence of God’s glory, and the dispenser of His grace, mercies, and goodness to your world.
