Time to Make Your Vision A Reality
A Word by Doug Addison
This is the time right now to get ready with your vision!
You must first have a vision before it can become a reality, but how do you get one?
After years of pursuing the vision God gave me 20 years ago, I have some hard-won, practical tips to help you get started!
#1. Get clear on exactly what you want to do.
Maybe you’re not sure of what you want to do for your entire life, but you know you need to do something to get you moving forward.
Here’s one of the best Bible verses for taking that first step:
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 119:105 NIV
Have you ever used a lamp to light your way? Or maybe a flashlight?
Sometimes the light illuminates only enough to show you your immediate next steps.
Ask God to give you clarity on the next steps you can take in your life to move towards your goals. It may be only enough information to take that next step, but trust God that He will get you where you need to go.
#2. Don’t be afraid of starting small.
God may give you something small to do for starters. Maybe you’ll start with cleaning out the garage and getting your house organized. Remember, the small stuff leads to bigger stuff!

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. Luke 16:10 NIV
Learn how to be disciplined in the small before tackling the large! It’s in the process when we learn what works and what doesn’t. There are necessary lessons to learn while being faithful in the little stuff.
“Do not despise these small beginnings … ” Zechariah 4:10 NIV
#3. Do your research.
We live in a time when we can get all the information we need with a click of a button.
If you want to start a business, there are thousands of books out there that tell you how to do it. If you want to pick up a new hobby, there are many articles you can read or videos to watch for free that give you step-by-step instructions.
When I wanted to start doing street ministry, I found out that John Paul Jackson was doing what I had envisioned. So, I took his courses and ended up traveling the world with him, learning on the go.
Whatever you want to do, someone out there has already done it—or something like it—and wants to share with you how you can do it, too.
Pursuing the vision is always worth it!
It’s been about twenty years since the Lord gave my wife, Linda, and me a vision after we watched a video of Prophet Bob Jones talking about the “billion soul harvest.” We sold everything to run after this vision and founded our ministry, InLight Connection, two years later.
God has been faithful and so good to us these past 18 years—even when times get hard. The Lord has always been here for us supporting the Vision for Revival.
God will be there for you, too, as you pursue what He’s given you to do!
A WORD FOR YOU TODAY!
A word by Joel Yount:
Several years ago while walking at a park an Eagle had flown right over me carrying what looked like a dead snake. The one thing that amazed me was how low the Eagle was flying as it flew above me. It was as if God was highlighting this occurrence that I had never experienced before.
Before seeing the Eagle and the snake, I had been walking around the park praying and declaring scriptures for breakthrough regarding a situation. Leading up to this time, it seemed as if there was an escalated season of attack from the enemy as someone had attempted to shut the Spirit Fuel website down. However, God stepped in and the individual responsible for that attempt did not succeed. Praise God!
Pay Attention To Signs God Reveals To You
God had stepped in many ways in only he could do. The escalated attacks had ceased. The Lord revealed to me that the Eagle had represented His power and protection coming down and taking the enemy (the snake) out of his place.
The Lord instructed me to send this testimony out today because He wants to remind many of you that nothing is hard for Him. He will send signs in the natural that relate to what is going on in the supernatural.
The prayers and declarations of saying scripture out loud at the park had activated something in the Spirit realm I believe. One important action I had taken before this event was sowing several seeds into different ministries. This act stretched my faith. When I saw what God did and how he turned the enemy’s plans upside down I was amazed. God is turning the enemy’s plans upside down in your own life today! Do something in the natural to activate the supernatural in your life today.
Right now I encourage you to sow a seed of $50, $25, $100, or $500 into Spirit Fuel and name it “Breakthrough” as an act of faith. By sowing a seed today into Spirit Fuel, you will be helping to reach more people on the internet for the Kingdom of God. It takes a dedicated team and resources to maintain the Spirit Fuel platform.
