    When there is no vision we as God's people can stumble we must seek God daily for our vision of where we must be in our lives. Our mission is to spread the Gospel and share it with the world and each person as a gift to go with their vision that will allow them to prosper in a spiritual sense
  • Anonymous for verse 18
    Basically this Biblical passage is actually bringing people to the knowledge of the fact that when God cease to speak and reveal Himself to His people, then the people are in danger of perishing! A revelation from God is redemptive because it guides people in the right tract
