Your vision - you must 'find' it! (1)
'...Write the vision and make it plain...' Habakkuk 2:2 NKJV

Notice two important things about vision: (1) Your vision must come from God. There's a difference between setting your own goals and having a God-given vision. When your vision is of God, ' will surely come...' (Habakkuk 2:3 NKJV) You won't have to orchestrate events; God will provide the resources and open doors at the right time. Your steps will be directed by Him. Here's an interesting Scripture: '...time and chance happen to them all. For man also does not know his time: like fish taken in a cruel net, like birds caught in a snare, so the sons of men are snared in an evil time...' (Ecclesiastes 9:11-12 NKJV) God will reveal to you your destiny and give you an opportunity to fulfill it. But you can resist it, or postpone it, or give your life to other things and end up missing your 'time' and 'chance'. Don't get caught in that net or trapped in that snare and forfeit what God has for you. (2) Your vision will be connected to a certain field. Joseph's dream started with a field of wheat (Genesis 37:6-7). What's your field? Whether God calls you to the field of medicine, education, finance, real estate, or some other field, it's to be a blessing to others. God told Abraham, '...I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.' (Genesis 12:2 NIV) Don't seek fame, seek to serve others. If you do your impact will be greater than your image and your eternal reward greater than anything you can drive, wear, live in, or hang on a wall.

Your vision - you must 'find' it! (2)
'...Write the vision and make it plain...' Habakkuk 2:2 NKJV

Jesus said, '...for this reason I was born...' (John 18:37 NIV) When you know why you're here and what your God-given purpose is, you become virtually unstoppable. You won't be flawless, but you'll have the innate power to overcome each obstacle as you proceed. If you get turned around, God loves you enough to get your attention, correct and redirect you, and get you back on track. But to find the right answers you must first ask the right questions, such as: What desires have been living in me most of my life? (2) What motivates me to be productive? (3) What keeps me going forward when I'm worn out? (4) What makes me refuse to quit when I meet with resistance or opposition? (5) What do I do that doesn't seem like work? (6) What do I do that brings positive response and support from others? (7) What am I doing, or what's happening in my life when doors seem to open automatically and effortlessly? (8) What do discerning leaders and godly counselors think about my work? (9) What makes me feel good about being who I am? (10) What makes my creative juices flow? (11) What am I willing to sacrifice to accomplish it? (12) What am I doing that I'd be proud to offer for God's approval? (13) What would I do without being paid for, if I could afford to? (14) What would I be willing to withstand Satan over, in order to accomplish it? What is God saying to you? It's not too late; find' your vision and follow it!
