‘…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 natural 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:
(1) 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 counsellors 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!
