STAY FOCUSED  John 18:37, 1 Corinthians 7:20, 24

Your vision is the ultimate plan of God for your life! Vision is a fundamental requirement of all world changers. World changers are focused visionaries; they have a unit of purpose. They caught their vision and they stayed with it till it manifested. One word from the Lord and they sold their existence to it. 1Corinthians 7:20, 24 “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called; Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God”.

Jesus our perfect example knew His purpose John 18:37 “Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice”. Many times we get excited by people’s success stories. But we often don’t know the painful journey and sacrifices they gave to get to that point. One thing we learnt though, is they were resolute in commitment to their vision. For example, the sacrifice paid to become a doctor is about nineteen years of study.

Habakkuk 2:1-4 “I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch to see what He will say to me, and what I will answer when I am corrected. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith”. You will encounter challenges and obstacles that will try to make you quit but don’t give up. Quitters never win and winners never quit.

No vision speaks at the beginning but the end. Keep at that vision, your existence is attached to it. Noah’s sole purpose was to preserve life. He built the ark for about a hundred years. Many people did not know that Michael Jordan played baseball because he never reached the greatest heights in that sport; basketball was his calling. We see in Nigeria some Nollywood artistes venturing into music. They never made it because they were in the wrong place.

If you have not discovered your vision, engage God in intense prayers to reveal it to you. And if you have received it already, throw your whole being into it.

 

Prayer point: By the power of resurrection, I will fulfil my destiny in due season in the name of Jesus.
