In order to reach your full potential, you must have a vision for your life, for your family, and for your ministry.
Three things to consider about having a vision
- Vision is looking at things through God’s prospective. You must use the Bible as your lens to view all the circumstances of your life.
Esther saw the great need put before her…her response”If I perish, I perish.”
Luke 1:37… with God nothing shall be impossible
- Modern-day Christians tend to be think inward. They think about their trials, their battles, their responsibilities.
First century Christians dealt with their own frailties while seeking the welfare of others.
3. Nothing worthwhile happens by accident.
Your vision statement might be as simple as “I want to love God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love my neighbour as myself,” or it could be, ‘I want to honor Christ in all that I say and do…no matter the cost.'”
Once you decide on your vision statement, be sure to remember it as you are interact with the lost, your spouse, other family members, your friends, your pastor, and other church members.
Get a vision! Get a plan! Act upon it! With God’s help, you can reach your fullest potential.
Where there is no vision, the people perish…Proverbs 29:18
