Do you feel that God is leading you in a new direction? Do you have a vision of what God has planned for you?
Having a clear vision for your own life and walking in it would keep us motivated and fulfilled in life. But the challenge is how can we bring the vision into focus and apply it in our daily lives.
We can start by nurturing our personal relationship with God through reading the Bible and spending time in prayer. It is by growing our faith that we could be able to endure life?s hardships, maintain a positive mindset, and experience the love of God.
It takes courage to begin a walk with Christ, because we are called to abide in Him, trust His words, and walk in His ways. Definitely, this is not an easy journey, as it entails a constant quest for righteousness – resisting temptation, taming your anger, loving your enemies, forgiving those who hurt you, and loving others, to cite a few.
But God also promise that He will abide in us! As the scripture says, “If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God.” – Deuteronomy 28:1-2
Are you willing to follow Him and work towards your personal vision that is consistent with His plans?
It is not good enough to read the scriptures. God wants every Christian to ingest His Words and truly live it, as it is obedience that makes all the difference.
“For I know the plans I have for you? declares the Lord, ?plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
