Keys to Get Holy Spirit’s Vision for Your Life

by | Nov 30, 2018 | Spirit-Led Living

The possibilities you are able to see depend on how you see yourself in the future. Let God help you see your life from His perspective (Jer. 29:11). How far you are able to see into your future depend on your willingness to discipline your mind and spirit through prayer and meditation on the Word of God. God will reveal how your potential will unfold according to His divine plans and purpose for your life. You will see your gifts and abilities finding expression on the grand stage of life and becoming synchronized with God’s plan for humanity. Imagine the possibilities!

You will often hear me quote, “Your feet will never take you where your mind has never been.” Those words have stuck with me for a long time now. They are why I want you to see yourself doing extraordinary things—creating, coaching, leading, writing, preaching, teaching, discovering or building—as if they were reality. Let God paint His plans on the canvas of your mind. Spend time alone with Him and ask Him to show you the great things He has prepared for you to do and accomplish (1 Cor. 2:9-10). Let your faith, not your fears, motivate you. Trust God to empower you with wisdom to make your vision a reality. This principle is so essential to living a successful, victorious life that it has been the backbone of much of what I teach. It is a foundational principle, along with the Scripture verse much akin to it: “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Prov. 29:18a).

Vision is simply a matter of how you see yourself in the future. It is acquiring a fresh perspective for your life from God’s vantage point. Just as when you go to the movies, a vision is a divine announcement of “coming attractions.”

How you see the future is contingent upon what you believe is possible for you and your family, community and nation; it is contingent upon what you believe about your potential for making something happen. What do you believe about the potential for making something happen. What do you believe about your potential to live the life you’ve imagined? I want to encourage you that God does not play games with our minds. He will never give you a desire to do something and not empower you to do it. “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust also in Him, and He will bring it to pass” (Ps. 37:4-5). He will never give you a vision and not provide the resources to make it a reality. “If you can believe, all things are possible” (Mark 9:23b).

Vision is not something you conjure up in your own imagination, but through prayerful consideration, you discern the will of God for your life (see Job 32:8). Your vision should line up with the Word of God and be a way you can fulfill your part of the Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you” (Matt. 28:19-20a). Once you have your vision, you can then discipline yourself to write the vision down and put feet to what you have written.

Prayer Power for the Week of Dec. 2, 2018

This week, as we begin the last month of the year and Christmas preparations, plan for a positive closure and beginning of a new year. Ask the Lord to motivate you anew toward the fulfillment of the vision He has already given you for your life. Take each day as it comes and partner with Him through prayer and His Word to accomplish His purpose. Pray for those serving in the military and are away from loved ones during this season. Ask the Lord to direct you in being a blessing to them and others who may be grieving the loss of loved ones and homes due to devastating circumstances. Remember our leaders and pray for protection and wise counsel as they make decisions affecting our nation and the world. Read Psalm 37:4-5, Proverbs 29:18, Jeremiah 29:11, Matthew 28:19-20. Mark 9;23, 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.
