Vision: the faculty or state of being able to see.
If we walked by natural sight, we would get discouraged. And we can’t walk by our fleeting feelings either because they can change every five minutes. However a wise visionary will combine their FAITH plus the hidden, three levels of God-given SIGHT to their advantage – Insight, Foresight, and Hindsight. This is your EDGE!
Insight: The capacity to gain an accurate and deep intuitive understanding of a person or thing; the power or act of seeing into a situation; penetration; the act or result of apprehending the inner nature of things or of seeing intuitively; discernment.
This level of sight can only be cultivated in a state of repose and reflectiveness. To navigate new seasons and transitions effectively, one must be still and quiet enough to think deeply and gain divine downloads or “a-ha” moments. Busyness is not a virtue to be applauded. It undermines the capacity for deep thought. Extended periods of grinding without adequate reflection time to gain quality insight, discernment and intuition from the Holy Spirit can cause you to self-sabotage the Vision.
Foresight: the ability to predict or the action of predicting what will happen or be needed in the future; prudence; forethought, planning; readiness, preparedness.
We all know the saying. “If God gave the Vision, He will provide the Provision.” However, the Vision still requires us to think and plan with an eye to the future. Foresight goes hand in hand with the concept of thinking with the end in mind – the expected end. This is thinking through all of the steps, possible situations, obstacles and dangers that will or may arise in the unfolding of the final manifestation. Foresight takes into account the subtle nuances, timing and what needs to be in place and fully operational for the next movement to occur. Foresight, for a visionary is also the ability to see the hidden dangers and prepare accordingly, not in fear, but in wisdom. Rarely is a wise visionary foolhardy.
Hindsight: understanding of an event or situation only after it has happened or developed; perception of the nature of an event after the fact.
Now this type of sight for a visionary is a teachable moment – a lesson learned. It’s the times where you think to yourself “In looking back on that whole situation, I can clearly see that I should have never gotten involved with _________ (you fill in the blank). If I operated in insight and foresight at a higher level to start with, I would not have gotten myself into situations where I now have regrettable hindsight. Oh, how much hindsight have we all received after having made a bad mistake! However, all is not lost with hindsight. In the process of vision manifestation, there will be inevitable moments of hindsight. Learn the lessons received in hindsight and let it go. Don’t create self-inflicted pain and suffering by guilt and condemnation. Hindsight revelation has its merits. You learn more of yourself and what not to do the next time. Until next time, Tonika
