A WORD AND PRAYER POINTS FROM PAPA AKORIA

“THE HIGHWAY OF DESTINY”

Israel did not know that there was a path through the Red sea because it takes divine eyes to discover this path. When they came to the Red sea they must have thought that it was the end of the road for them, especially when the enemy came pressing from behind. There are invisible highways which only those with spiritual insight can see before they manifest.

As long as the patriarch, Abraham, was in his tent he did not know that God had made him the father of nations. When God brought him out to count the number of stars he believed and became righteous. The Bible says:

Genesis 15:1-6 (KJV)

After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. [2] And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? [3] And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. [4] And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. [5] And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. [6] And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

Genesis 15:1-6 (Living)

Afterwards Jehovah spoke to Abram in a vision, and this is what he told him: “Don’t be fearful, Abram, for I will defend you. And I will give you great blessings.” [2] But Abram replied, “O Lord Jehovah, what good are all your blessings when I have no son? [3] For without a son, some other member of my household will inherit all my wealth.” [4] Then Jehovah told him, “No, no one else will be your heir, for you will have a son to inherit everything you own.” [5] Then God brought Abram outside beneath the nighttime sky and told him, “Look up into the heavens and count the stars if you can. Your descendants will be like that–too many to count!” [6] And Abram believed God; then God considered him righteous on account of his faith.

It was by reason of this vision that Abraham broke the back bone of barrenness.

I welcome you to the highway of destiny.

There is a life path that God has carved out for you right from the foundation of the world which you must locate and travel upon if you must prosper in life. This road is what we may refer to as “The highway of destiny” or “The highway of your visions & dreams.” It is a path that God personally charted out for you to follow from now into eternity. In this path there is no escort; you alone are travelling it. Satan tries to interfere with, or labours to divert you from this golden road that leads you to your destiny; but God shall not allow him to succeed in your life in Jesus name. But then are sure you are still in your path or you have diverted already? If you have, my God shall bring you back this month in Jesus name. The Bible says:

Matthew 26:24 (KJV)

The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.

Even Jesus, our Saviour travelled the path carved out for Him by the Father. Everything He did from the cradle to the grave was made up of those things that were written or spoken about Him by God’s prophets. For instance, He sat or rode on a young ass as it is written of Him. The Bible says:

John 12:14 (KJV)

And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,

Where was this previously written of Him?

Zech. 9:9 (KJV)

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

Any man, woman, or evil association that has vowed to mutilate or alter what God has written about you shall die by fire. It did not matter how long this prophecy about Jesus riding upon an ass took it finally came to pass. You will travel through the length, depth and height of your God-given visions and dreams.

That volume of the book that God has predestined you to travel through as you do His will shall not be stolen, re-written, or mutilated by the enemy. It shall not be replaced with a satanic black book in Jesus name. Jesus came in the volume of His own books; you will travel through yours in the name of Jesus. The Bible says:

Psalm 40:7-10 (KJV)

Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, [8] I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. [9] I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O Lord, thou knowest. [10] I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

There is a divine blueprint of your life in heaven which you must discover and then align or pattern your earthly life after. You must endeavour to look into that divine blueprint or pattern and ensure that you follow it day and night to see that it is only what God has spoken concerning your life that comes to pass.

God instructed Moses to ensure that the tabernacle he built was a model or blueprint of what he had seen on the mountain. The Bible says:

Hebrews 8:5 (KJV)

Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

Hebrews 8:5 (ASV)

who serve that which is a copy and shadow of the heavenly things, even as Moses is warned of God when he is about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern that was showed thee in the mount.

It is improper for a believer to start a project that is not patterned after the heavenly master plan. This is the same as saying that the believer must have a vision or an insight before proceeding into doing anything worthwhile or reasonable.

WHAT IS A VISION?

  • It is supernatural insight into the divine plan of God for an individual.
  • It is what you foresee yourself becoming in future.
  • It is a unique fingerprint of God in your life and ministry.
  • It is the map of life that the individual must travel under God’s guidance; anything outside of which it would be certain that you are travelling at your own risk.
  • It is your tomorrow in the calendar of God.
  • It is God’s mind and purpose expressed in supernatural form.
  • It is a divine push or drive which God puts in man that makes him do something productive.
  • It is a heaven-structured plan that prompts or directs a man in the way that he must go in life.
  • It is the spiritual compass or sounding in the spirit that directs a man on what to do in order to make gain with his life.
  • It is a divine unfolding of God’s pregnancy and programme for a man or humanity in general.
  • It is a sanctified dream.
  • It is a foresight with insight.

Vision is necessary to pilot you successfully through life. Hence the Bible says:

Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

  • Where there is no vision people are always confused and confounded; there is often chaos.
  • Where there is no vision people lose direction and focus; they do not know where next to go.
  • Where there is no vision things are done in a disorderly manner.
  • Where there is no vision people riot and revolt against order; they break rank.
  • Where there is no vision people step on the toes of others because they do not know their boundaries.
  • Where there is no vision retrogressive movement becomes the rule than the exception. People hardly move forward. Therefore without vision you cannot go far.
  • Where there is no vision the pregnancy of God concerning you is aborted prematurely.
  • Where there is no vision people operate by trial and error; they live a life of perpetual error.
  • Where there is no vision the destinies of those tied to the institution or to you are often at stake. By this you gamble with the destinies of men and women looking up to you.
  • Where there is no vision people expire and retire prematurely.

Vision is a driving force that makes it possible for things to be done and properly too. Vision is necessary for direction and order. You will go nowhere without a vision. Man draws power from the past, lives in the present and prepares for the future via his vision.

THE MAGNETIZING POWER OF VISION

  • Vision pulls you to people and vis-à-vis pulls people to you. It pulls close to you those who have what you are looking for.
  • The more you visualize or dream of something the closer it is pulled towards you.
  • The more vague, obscure or weaker a vision or dream is the less the inherent energy it has and therefore the less efficacious it is in the physical.
  • Once your vision or dream starts dying all those it has pulled together may start falling apart.
  • On the contrary, when a dying vision is revived all those who had discarded it are most likely to be pulled together towards it.
  • It is only a vision that dominates your life that can make you whom you finally become. Hence, like Jesus, you must be committed to your vision. The Bible says:

John 4:32-34 (KJV)

But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. [33] Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? [34] Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

Proverbs 27:19 (KJV)

As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man.

  • Only a vision that is strong enough can command results and speak in the long run. Weak visions are too weak to speak out.

Habakkuk 2:3 (KJV)

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Habakkuk 2:3 (Living)

But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!

What you cannot see today with the eye of your spirit do not expect to find it tomorrow in the physical. Your future is a product of the brace of your vision and what you say with your mouth (Gen. 13:14, 15). It takes a dream to rule in your generation and a vision to be a good commander of good things of life. No man can intimidate someone who is propelled by his vision, in fact, with vision you intimidate your competitors. It is a vision that makes you unique, original and different from other people.

My prayer for you this first month of the year is that God will shunt men and women and then choose you for special blessing and promotion.
