LIVING A LIFE OF DEDICATION TO THE THINGS IN LIFE THAT MATTER THE MOST

 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ (‭Mark‬ ‭12‬:‭30‬ NIV)

Where there is no vision, the people perish:... (‭Proverbs‬ ‭29‬:‭18‬a KJV)

HOW DO I GO ALL IN WITH GOD'S VISION FOR MY LIFE?

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. (‭Habakkuk‬ ‭2‬:‭1-3‬ NKJV)

1) TAKE TIME TO DREAM.   

I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me,..(‭Habakkuk‬ ‭2‬:‭1‬aNIV)

redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭5‬:‭16-17‬ NKJV)

After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, ....Genesis‬ ‭15‬:‭1a

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;.. (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭1‬:‭5‬a NIV)

2). TURN YOUR DREAMS INTO GOALS BY WRITING DOWN AND DESCRIBING WHAT YOU WANT

Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, (Habakkuk 2:2 NKJV )

,..“Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.” (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭1‬:‭11-12‬ NKJV)

May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, And fulfill all your purpose. (‭Psalms‬ ‭20‬:‭4‬ NKJV)

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. (‭Psalm‬ ‭37‬:‭4‬ NIV)

3) DETERMINE YOUR PRESENT CONDITION

And the LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are— northward, southward, eastward, and westward; (‭Genesis‬ ‭13‬:‭14‬ NKJV)

After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, ....Genesis‬ ‭15‬:‭1a

Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” And he believed in the LORD, and He accounted it to him for righteousness. (‭Genesis‬ ‭15‬: 5-6‬ NKJV)

4) IDENTIFY YOUR BARRIERS AND TAKE ACTION

When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. (‭Luke‬ ‭5‬:‭4-6‬ NKJV)

5) ASK GOD FOR HELP

A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭9‬ NKJV)

We humans keep brainstorming options and plans, but GOD ’s purpose prevails. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭19‬:‭21‬ MSG)

Those who are planted in the house of the LORD Shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing, (‭Psalms‬ ‭92‬:‭13-14‬ NKJV)

6) ENLIST A TEAM OF FRIENDS TO YOUR DESTINY

Without counsel, plans go awry, But in the multitude of counselors they are established. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭15‬:‭22‬ NKJV)

7) BE PATIENT AND PERSISTENT

Though it tarries, wait for it; Habakkuk‬ ‭2‬:‭3b NKJV)

...He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts. For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon GOD get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭40‬:‭30-31‬ MSG)

The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭21‬:‭5‬ NIV)

8) PAY THE PRICE

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭3‬:‭5-6‬ NIV)
