One of the greatest things many people lack in their lives is vision.
Having a vision for your life is really important. In fact, the Bible says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18 KJV). So, vision is something every single person on the planet needs to have.
As a father, I’m the leader in our home. I’m also the leader in our ministry. So, it’s my responsibility to make sure everyone is on the same page, headed in the same direction. I’ve found that one of the biggest challenges I face is constantly making sure there is a clear vision. Where are we going? How are we getting there? What is it going to take to accomplish that?
When it comes to getting a vision for your life and successfully carrying it out, there are six questions you’ll eventually have to answer: Who? What? Where? How? Why? When? Even if you have a vision for your life, but don’t answer those questions, you’ll probably spend most of your life wandering around in circles. There are a whole lot of people that are wandering aimlessly through life, making no progress because they don’t have a destination mapped out.
God created you for a purpose. He gave you gifts and talents for you to develop and use that will bring increase to you and also be a blessing to others. Having a clear vision will give you purpose and cause you to live a rich, satisfied life.
Not having a clear vision will cause you to wander aimlessly through life, never accomplishing the plans that God has for you.
In order to have a clear vision, you have to answer the questions: Who? What? Where? How? Why? When?
