Topic: Have A Vision For Your Life [Wednesday January 10th, 2018]
“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. (Proverbs 29:18 KJV)
Yesterday we learnt that one thing that enabled the Apostle Paul to accomplish his purpose was that he had a clear vision of what God wanted him to do and he was intentional about it. For too long we have complained about how things are not working, but the time has come for us to become the agents of change. You have a role to play and it begins with you becoming intentional.
Being intentional starts with having a vision for your life. You must have a goal. You must know where you are going to in life and how you intend to get there. A person that does not define his objectives obviously will end nowhere but that will not be your portion in Jesus name. When you look at Acts chapter 26, you will see that Apostle Paul knew who called him and exactly what he was called to do. He kept at it and he defended it. He was a man of purpose and he fulfilled it.
My question is how do you want your business to be like this year? When I say business, I mean everything about your life. Child of God, at what altitude do you want to fly? What relationships do you want to develop and leverage on? Beloved, nothing just happens. All your goals for the year must be clearly defined before you set out. This is the pathway of all achievers. Sit down, think, plan and strategize. Understand that you are a different person. You are a New Species that has never existed before. You are called out to show forth the glory and Excellency of our God. You are called to take charge and lead the way for others to follow. There is no way you can fail!
I declare over your life that your light will no longer grow dim. You will arise and shine. The earth will yield its goodness for you. You will not carry a cup in your hands to beg, neither will you weep nor lament in the name of Jesus. You will surely fulfil purpose.
