Our visions must be in writing. There is power in putting pen to paper where your dreams and visions for your life are concerned. When you commit something to writing, following through and achieving it usually follows close behind.
In the book of Habukkuk in the Bible, the Lord tells the prophet, “write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.” This scripture reveals the key to successfully setting goals. God desires us to run with the vision for our lives and as long as we are running with the vision there is much less of a chance that we will turn around.
Effective goal setting gives us an opportunity to bring the future to the present, where we can visualize it and run with it today! We still have to do our job and plan and prepare. Believe for God’s plan for our lives - for God’s biggest dream for our life. When you plan, look to the future, don’t dwell on what’s past. You cannot drive forward if you are looking out the rear window.
At it’s beginning, every great success seemed somewhat impossible at the time. You must always think bigger than you are because that is where God is! “With God, all things are possible”. Most people live unfulfilled, meaningless lives because they never write down the vision for their life and never see it come to fruition.
If you cannot see the mark, or the finish line, you have nothing to press toward. Put God’s vision for your life on paper and start to run with his plan, making the necessary course corrections along the way. You can’t finish what you never start!
Remember, you only have one...SO ROCK THIS LIFE NOW!!
