Where there is no vision, the people perish: Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)
To live life without a vision is a depressing way to live. There are many people who cannot find any satisfaction in life because they’ve never found their true destiny. God wants you to live a life that is filled with meaning and purpose. You are not made to accept what comes your way and call that your destiny. You are made to uncover the destiny and dream that God has for your life.
Vision is gained when you catch the dream God has for you and you start dreaming with God. A person with a vision from God is not merely living to meet the standards of the world we live in, but success to them is in fulfilling the call and purpose God made them for.
Living by what is thrown at you : A lot of people live everyday just to get by. They accept what is thrown at them and call it their destiny. May be they are in a tough situation and they don’t see an opportunity to dream and some don’t believe that they have the liberty to dream. There is still good news, read on.
Living to fulfil your destiny : When you live to fulfil your destiny, you live a life filled with passion and purpose. Destiny is your journey to the destination. The destination is a dream that God has placed in your heart. There is nothing that can compare to living a life where you are pursuing what God has called you to do and being in the centre of His will. Here are two simple ways to uncover your destiny.
1. Look beyond your present :
However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”–1 Corinthians 2:9
God’s dream for you is not limited to what you have and what you don’t have. He created everything we see around by His spoken word. The only thing that can limit God from working in your life is your imagination. Is your dream bigger than what is possible on your own? I love the way my pastor, Ashish Raichur says it : “Your current situation is no indication of your destination”. If only we learn to look beyond what our eyes can see, there is no limit to what God can do through us. I tell people to look beyond the usual to find the dream God has for them. Dreamers who dream about erasing poverty, influencing culture and society with kingdom values, leaders who leave an unmatched legacy and so on.
2. It has to glorify God :
One of the ways to know if our desires are from God is to be sure that it glorifies God. We live to glorify God with our life and choices. My desire is to live in a way where God’s hand is clearly visible in everything I do. I long to see people look at my life and glorify God for His goodness and His heart. What do people see when they look at you? Do they see God in the centre of your life?
God has amazing plans for your life and if you partner with Him, nothing can hold you back from living a meaningful and purposeful life. He can restore all your lost time and give you every breakthrough you need to live in His will. The desires, passion and talents in you are placed by God for a reason. Take them seriously. You are not living just to survive, God has a perfect unique plan for your life.
