Everyone needs a vision for their life. Vision is the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.
Proverbs 29:18 — Where there is no vision (no redemptive revelation of God), the people perish; but he who keeps the law (of God, which includes that of man) — blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he. Without a vision, the people are unrestrained; they run wild. There is nothing to keep us from doing our own things — casting off all restraint, and feeding and yielding to our flesh.
Vision gives us direction — a road map for our lives, purpose, and dreams. It’s more than a purpose: it’s what helps us fulfill our purpose. Our greatest purpose is to connect with God and learn His ways. Vision begins from a desire — the desire for something better, a better future. A vision for your life will keep you on the straight and narrow. So many lack vision because they are satisfied with where they are.
P.K. Bernard said, “A man without a vision is a man without a future. A man without a future will always return to his past.” Cleddie Keith said it this way, “A knife cuts because it has a narrow focus.” If you don’t have a vision for your life, begin today by saying, My vision is to know God and His word, and to please Him.
Be a doer of the word of God, then allow God to lead and direct your life. It’s always your choice. Choose life.
Just a thought,
