Book Review : The Promise of Vision
This short little book explains vision and the need for vision in our personal lives and churches. Robinson begins with stories of people with a lack of vision who predicted all manner of dire outcomes which are laughable today. He then moves on to Bible characters who were given a vision from God and achieved great things. People such as Noah, Abraham, Moses and Nehemiah.
Vision keeps us motivated and trusting in God to bring about what is impossible ourselves. Robinson includes some modern day people who changed history with great vision, Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin, Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela.
In order to get a vision from God requires us to immerse ourselves in God’s word, prayer and to survey the needs around about us. When we do receive a vision from God, expect opposition! It is important to not to give up but persist, by continuing to trust God to bring his plans into being.
Robinson has written an easy to read booklet outlining important principles.
A helpful book.
