Enlarge our Vision 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 As spiritual leaders, we need to have biblical vision and insight for the task of following the Lord as well as leading others to do likewise! I trust this simple outline will aid and encourage you along that path! Jabez was the head of the clan of Judah…known for their closeness to God. 1. Any successful endeavor requires a vision… a. The word “vision”: 1) Literally means the ability to see things that are…

Over the years, one of the largest things that I have had to make sure I keep up with is that I stay faithful to God’s calling on my life as a Pastor | father | husband | leader.
