How To Know God's Vision For Your Life


Do you know God's vision for your life? That's a loaded question.


The question assumes that God is real. It assumes that he has a vision for your life. And it also assumes that you can know that vision.


I've been thinking a lot about vision lately.


At this moment I believe it's one of the most important things you can possess. Without a vision (defined as a picture of your preferred future) you're stuck wherever you are today, or worse, in your past.


An authentic, God-given vision is the Secret Sauce for an abundant life.


Some years ago, God gave me a flash of insight.


Lifted from the Hall of Fame of Faith in the New Testament was the blueprint for anyone who ever received a vision from God.


It's over 2000 years old, but it's still the formula for anyone who wants to know. It stunned me with its simplicity, but there it was, a road-map to decode God's vision in any situation. The Scripture broke it down like this.


First you must see the vision. It stands to reason that you can't have something that you can't even visualize. You need a mental picture of the preferred future.


Second, you must be persuaded (i.e., believe) the vision. Don't kid yourself. You won't commit long-term to something you don't believe in.


Third, you must embrace (act upon) the vision. Action is proof that you believe the vision. Without action, your belief is nonexistent.


Fourth, you must persist in the vision. It is by continuing in the vision that you leave a legacy. Without persistence, your vision will ultimately fade away.

To make it personal, God gave me a new vision for my life this year. The vision is about communicating God's wisdom—including how to catch his vision—to anyone who will listen.


I am persuaded (i.e., I believe) that is exactly what God created me to do. That regardless of whatever visions I've pursued up till this point, this is my Assignment for the foreseeable future. My actions will tell whether I truly believe it or not. My actions will also proclaim whether I will persist. What will be my legacy when I'm gone? What will people say that I stood for?


"There lies Wayne Gill. He communicated God's wisdom with all of his heart, mind, soul and strength," or "There lies Wayne Gill. He started well, but quit when the sun scorched his feathers."


The choice is mine.


But what about you? What is God saying to you lately?


See ...

Believe ...

Act ...

Persist ...


Simple words. Easy to type. Hard to do.


Do you have a vision?


You can!


If you'd like to pursue this question, or know someone who would, please share this post. Below you will find a link to our God's Vision Mentoring Circle that kicks off on September 22, 2020.


In that Mentoring Circle, Sharon and I will lead a 5-week online discussion about how you can explore, identify, and then fulfill God's vision for your life.

It is bound to be an eye-opening journey of personal exploration and satisfaction.
