“Then the Lord answered me and said:’ Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.'” (Habakkuk 2:2 NKJV)
Do you have a vision? Has God placed a dream on the inside of you? The Word tells us in Jeremiah 29:11 that God has a good plan for each one of us, so if you don’t know your plan, ask God to reveal it to you today. He will. He desires to share it with you. He wants you to have a sense of purpose and direction. There is nothing quite as exciting as discovering your destiny in Jesus.
Once you have a vision of that plan, it’s your job to keep that vision before you. Write the vision. Record it in your journal. Post it on your computer or in your locker. Tape it on your bathroom mirror. Keep a copy in your bible. Just keep the vision before you. See, we never want to lose sight of what God has for us. To use an old sports analogy, we want to keep our eyes on the ball at all times.
Maybe you haven’t spent much time meditating on the dream that God has placed in your heart. Maybe it seems too big, but nothing is too big for God. If He has placed a vision on the inside of you, He is more than able to help you fulfill it. But, you must do your part.
Find scriptures that pertain to your vision. Pray over your vision every day. Talk about your vision with your Christian friends, your youth pastor, and your family. Spend time envisioning yourself fulfilling your destiny. Lastly, believe with every fiber of your being that you will one day walk in your dream. Now, get excited! You’re one day closer to seeing your vision become a reality.
