One of the greatest influences in life is the power of vision. With vision you can reach amazing heights. Without it, you will drift aimlessly.
Scriptures tells us the importance of living with vision.
Where there is no vision, the people perish Proverbs 29:18 KVJ
Some people get comfortable. They know if they get a vision it will require them to change. Some people are in survival mode. They are so busy they don’t take time to evaluate their journey to see if they’re on the right track. Some people have tried and failed so they give up ever trying again.
Here is the reality – everyone ends up somewhere but some people end up somewhere on purpose. We want to help you cultivate a vision-guided life.
Make an Accurate Assessment of your Situation. Nehemiah set out to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. His first step was to tell the honest truth. (Nehemiah 2:11-18) Without the facts you really have no idea what decisions need to be made. So be brave and take inventory of your life. It will you guide you to what steps to take.
Catch the Vision. A vision is a picture of a preferable future that produces passion. What makes your heart beat faster? What makes you say, I was born for this! God will often use your core values, gifts, talents and life experiences to reveal and confirm his vision for your life
Be an Encourager. If you are going to accomplish great things in your life, you’ll have to have the help of many others. It turns out that when we help other people achieve their dreams, God brings people into our lives to help us achieve ours. All of that happens in an atmosphere of encouragement.
Stay the Course. Anything worthwhile is going to be difficult. If you want to make changes in your life, it will be hard. One of the reasons people fail is they give up to soon. Sometimes the best thing you can do is stand your ground and stay the course.
Vision will keep you from drifting, it will help you design and build the life of your dreams.
