Allen Wright, pastor, Bible teacher and author of his latest book, the power to bless what a vision from God does is put into an identity of who you are, why you exist so that then competing ideologies and all distractions from your God-given purpose. To the side. In other words, you restrain yourself from all the Allen to another message of good news that will help you see your life in a whole new light.

Just contact us at pastoralan.org that's Pastor Alan.org or call 877-544-4860 that's 877-544-4860 will have more on this special offer later in the program but now let's get started with today's teaching here is Allen right most important thing I think ever happened to a child would be to get a vision for his or her life right is where identity comes from and it's interesting that the spirit of this present age would disagree with what I'm saying right now because the spirit of the ages would be quick to accuse me of sin. We are trying to overly control your child and exert their influence. He shouldn't do that.
Just let the child be the child going to be discover him or herself and that everyone find their own direction and no one give restrain anybody by any such type vision. That's the cry of the age entity. There have been, of course, parents and authority figures who have been selfishly and selfishly impose their own agenda onto others and and that's the thing that people want to break free from.
I understand that but but but the spirit of the ages has offered no vision for a child at all is absolutely wrong and if you think about it completely ridiculous. Of course you have a vision for a little time just using this as an illustration, but is a picture of the bigger issue of vision and a course you have a vision. If you have a child that crawls you have a vision for the child to walk.
That's why we take them by their little hands and we hold them up and we straddle them only walk inside, show them this is what it feels like to wall to get a vision of them not crawling their whole life.
It's why when their preschoolers. We buy them books and we set them in our laps and we read them stories because we have a vision of them. Learning to read. We have a vision and even people who say they don't have a vision for their children, but they do have a vision and something happens inside of a soul. When you begin to catch the vision because you align your life according to the vision were not raising slaves robots perform obediently for us.
Of course not. The life of obedience is a life that aligns to what is highest and best and something gets planted deep within. So to say where there is no vision or no prophetic revelation people cast off restraint is to say if you don't have a God-given vision for your life. There is no inward ruling force that shapes all your decisions and all your behaviors but what a vision from God does is it puts into you and identity of who you are, why you exist and where you're going with your life so that then all competing ideologies and all distractions from your God-given purpose get laid to the side. In other words, you restrain yourself from all the distractions including the sin which so easily clings to us.
You are made for so much and God is your father and God is not silent. He is not a cruel father who leaves his children in silence, wondering what they're supposed to do. He is a God of revelation is a God of the word is a God of the spirit who deposits his own life inside of you, his own spirit and I'm just saying if I had as a father of a newborn baby girl vision over her life. How much more so does your heavenly father have a vision for your life. We want you to receive it and catch it if I spoke prophetic blessing over my children in order to cast a vision for their future so they could grow into it. How much more so does God by the power of his word and his spirit speak a prophetic revelation of your life a blessing over your life. That's what his word is full of his telling you a vision for who you are a vision for what you've been made a vision for who you are destined to be surprising when when in this one little versus so famous where there is no prophetic revelation of prophetic vision, the people cast off restraint that the couplet the second part of it says, but blessed is he who keeps the law you might expect that the proverb would save where there is no prophetic vision, the people are discouraged, the people cast off restraint, but rather is revelation. The people flourish. You might expect it to say that it's a parallel statement. In other words, it's sort of repeating the first statement, but the second statement says blessed is he who keeps the law there that seems odd at first but what I want to show you today is just how beautifully powerfully inseparable.
These two ideas are that, in other words, my point is about about raising Abby is that I wanted to put a prophetic revelation over her life of holiness, pure purity and love for Christ and of making a difference in the world because once she gets that then.
Blessed is she who keeps the law. Your obedience is not a drudgery to a slave master is in alignment to revelation, that is calm from your father. Let me start with this to try to explain further how sad and empty and dangerous. It is where there is no vision or there's a misguided vision so the spirit of the age would tell you that you are more free when there's no one telling you what to do.
That's the spirit of the age. Freedom is proportionate to how little restraint you have on your life that is categorically the opposite of the biblical picture of what freedom actually is freedom, powerful, beautiful freedom and biblical faith comes weather is vision and revelation and the word of the Lord, and in fact and biblical faith where there is no present revelation. There is deep mourning. So, in the old covenant. You see, over and over. This theme that there is a great grief if there is no vision. Proverbs 1114 says where there is no guidance of people falls but an abundance of counselors there is safety first Samuel 31, little Samuel is called into the ministry that verse once is now the boy Samuel was ministering to the Lord in the presence of Eli and the word of the Lord was rare in those days there was no frequent vision to this is a grievous thing in the heart of Israel. If there was no frequent vision Amos eight describes one of the most painful forms of judgment that the Lord ever brought in the old covenant will hold the days are coming, declares the Lord God when I was in a famine on the land, not a famine of bread nor thirst for water but hearing the words of the Lord shall wander from sea to sea, and from Northeast, he shall run to and fro, to seek the word of the Lord, but they cannot find it is grievous thing. If you didn't have a transcendent revelation giving you instruction for your life. Part of Lamentations the lament of the exiled people is for this very thing.
Lamentations 29 are gates of sunk into the ground is ruined and broken her bars or kings and princes are among the nations. The law is no more. The Torah are word from God.
Where is it will have it were not surrounded by what, in her prophets find no vision from the Lord is one of the greatest forms of grief in the life of Israel. Hosea 46 says it plainly, my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, all of biblical faith hinges on this God reveals himself and if you don't have revelation from God, then you are stuck or you're in danger. Contrary to our modern notions.
It is a gift. This is the most precious if someone who knows more than you do gives you a word of wisdom and revelation and vision that you can trust what a gift and if you don't have your stuck paralyze or imperil talent right will have more teaching moment from today's important series like something is holding you back if you can important see that could change everything.

Today's teaching you once again is had a fresh example of this rigid recent beach trip for more raw than it is fresh.
Our family decided we were going to branch out and family at the beach there didn't have all the cousins this year, but we had 10 of us without our branch out go to a new restaurant and I had seen a sign for Smokies on the inlet at Little River and we said let's go check it out sabotage waterfront dining went and looked at it, then that would in a was what else all it is beautiful. It's quaint it's it's got outdoor seating is covered is minority and looks over beautiful Marina that in all inlet from the waterway and so we mentioned to the family look to the measurements and let's go try it and course things get crowded down the beach this time year and so I don't take reservations so wisely we believe is 630 I called right at 630 I said how much away do you have the said no more about 10 minutes. I said right and as we become that way and then also because a lot of the seating is outdoor seating. I looked on the weather app to see that. Okay, there are some storms in the area to the south and to the west, but they are not predicted to hit Little River. Let's go will enjoy it while you know how the treadmill words drag it to people together and at 715 before we leave.
We get there at 735. So now two things have changed.
There's now a 40 minute wait, and I notice as we went to walk is no problem to walk amongst the yachts and look at Amanda Marina went on the table I noticed the black cloud that had seemed like they're really in the distance were moving rapidly towards us and said the kids, let's go get up under the sheltered area. There we just cannot stand around other people that are eating their food because it's gonna rain and it started raining. It started pouring it started blowing sideways rain so that wasn't good enough just to stay under the covers shelter at the edge. We have become a crowd in a just hover over the shoulders of other people eating fried shrimp and the lightning started.
It was one of the worst electrical storms I've ever actually been in. It was so bad I said the kids with which we got no we understand the inside was just go stand inside the door.
There's hardly any room and there's a little place so we all 10 of us when we go when we stand inside the lightning is crashing and it's that kind of thunder and lightning that are happening simultaneously so you know this is right on top of us fireworks in the sky and now we been waiting 35 minutes and where were much relieved to see that there some people getting ready to leave our tables going to be set up inside you going to sit outside and stole money, I'd like electrocution is on our mind and so all of a sudden and the lights went out in the restaurant and everybody went and we like and then all of a sudden they came back on, thereby cheered who rock their cleaning our tables and the just right about the tender thing is the table. The manager came over and he said I'm so sorry. He said the lightning has taken out our ventilation system and we can no longer cook any food were shutting the kitchen down.
I'm sorry and now we been there 45 minutes.
Fill weather app on my phone had a little indicator of how far away the lightning strikes were and it said they were 0.0 miles. It was every five seconds lightning. The skies were just lit up one of the problems it Smokies is only six parking places that are up close.
The others are 100 yards away. We are in the hundred yard plus range. You have to go down and exterior steep stairs out into the parking lot and then a football field to get to the car. It was simply impossible to go without risking death. I said honey we just act. I would like to get the car for a buddy. My brother will want to go to the concert we just can't write that. She said you're right no way to go, which is what this thing past for an hour and 15 or 20 minutes. I sat there looking at this, waiting for it to pass in the lightning stood still on top of Smokies I said you have any cold food we could eat. He said no and the cash or doesn't work anyway. So we sat there until finally the app said the lightning is now 0.4 miles away. That was good enough.
I made a dash for the car. Kevin made a dash for the car. We got in it. I was I was so scared of the lightning, I slammed the door. My own left hand as I got in still cartilage is damaged but I'm alright and we brought the cars up successfully got all 10 people in the cars and we had been at Smokies for two hours with no food.
It's 935 and where, thankfully, gonna pull out and get some Domino's pizza, and as were pulling out the single lane road which is the only way out of Smokies.
We came to the first little intersection. There's a in the road and I was going slowly with all this.
A lot of standing water now looked up in the car who done just like we done waited till lightning stopped enough to get the car I looked in front of me had stopped in the midst of the standing water and I realize had stalled out and that there was a flood on the street. I called Smokies. I said the street is flooded.
Is there another way out. They said no people's temperaments are little different when they haven't had a food and were sitting there cabins behind me and I just started backing up to get off of this water chemically what is going on and I realized as I announce to the car, folks. It is raining ritually so the flash flooding is not going to improve until the rain stops in the rain is forecast to continue for the next hour so I don't know when or how were going to get out of here and we just sat there if you want to know the picture of what life is like where there is no revelation that there is a flood in front of me.
I'm nearly starving and I don't know if we just sleep in the car here until this blood subsides. I have no way of knowing whether if I pulled through the water will it carry me away you see these videos of the stupid people that drive through the stuff I'm like that seems foolish but I'm very tempted to try it.
How nice it would be for someone that knew something more about the situation to tell me. Could I make it through this water, I'd like to know. I don't know.
Is there any other way around it. I don't know. I'd like to know will eventually after sitting there for some time.
My niece Anna Catherine bravely got out and her shorts and bare feeds that I'm going out to explore and see a sedan coming over judicial lighting in the area and it is subsided somewhat.
She she got out there and start waiting see how deep I would've done it but I have long pencil so I could through my niece to the wolves out there and and she goes in.
She, wades in a role as a stuffed knee-deep signs as a flood of light and then she's gone. She turns, this will parking lot of right neck to determine if she comes back she says I think I found a way out. What she said well I think you can get.
Turn right into this will parking lot and the water is not as deep right here to get into the parking lot and what you in the parking lot.
It is pretty dry and there's a place where you come to a concrete barrier before you start getting out to the marina and there's a little opening where you can drive up to the left up to slip it onto a grassy area and I think you can drive across the grassy area and it will bring you out to the road just beyond where the flood is, and we said well you could become the man she suggest that we could swing to draw there and check it out. Was it okay will take that as a revelation. And sure enough we turn back in there and we went up the hill.
Grassy thing we can get stuck on it with full right out and then other people thought we were doing it. They also are doing and we all got out of the flood and and and I was in get out help the man who stuck in the in the flood, but I had long pencil and a fireman was coming a fire truck was there a fire truck was there and Andy had rubber boots. So anyway we all got out, so think about how silly would it be right if we had a revelation about how we can get out of the situation in a way that we can move forward beyond the flood. How silly it would be about that. What nobody will tell me what to do I just drive around to waterfowl to Bob to sit right here. Tell me what to do. Put restraint told me like I gotta turn right into a parking lot go up on some grass all feel like going up on me grass right now that's just stupid.
I mean wouldn't do that. Why because you revelation of something so what happens when you get a revelation when you get a word about something that is is information that was transcendent that you did not know before him it now. You do know you just outline your life to that right is so blessed is the one who turned right in the partyline goods of the grassy area gets up and then we went gutter Domino's pizza you see that's what the picture is blessed as you keep the law.
Bless the one who gets a prophetic revelation and then lets her whole life realigned to that is the way that it works. That's the nature of God's word to us the way we God's desire for a vision for our life works is give you meaningless stuff that you do to be obedient because your slave is dead is your father, and he knows the direction for you it's it's it's a fusion that energizes us to actually move in the direction that we need to move today's teaching from the series on foolproof. It's foolproof fusion. Alan is back with us in this to you here in just a moment sharing a parting good news thought for the day.

As you say, energizing right is energizing you think is will see tomorrow when you think of someone like Paul and what energized him and gave him such perseverance. What was it was it was. Paul had a vision of Jesus, a blinding light came a voice vote in the chief persecutor of the Christians became the gospel's chief preacher is was like when when in acts 26 when the Paul is making his defense before the king essentially just says King Agrippa, I would not disobedient to the heavenly vision will not just an example of how powerful vision is so as will see tomorrow. The focus of our lives should not be open they obey obey is important is our obedience is the focus is vision vision vision and out of that vision. Obedience will flow.
