Are you in your twenties? What have you done so far with your life? Have you spent so much time trying to please your friends that you don’t know who you are or what your life is about?
If so, you aren’t doing yourself any favors. You aren’t fulfilling your purpose. You may say you are just reacting to “peer pressure.” In reality, you are allowing others to rule your life.
Maybe you are forty years old. What have you done so far that the world can’t forget? How long will you drift along without working toward your dream? Be careful— procrastination can become a full-time occupation!
Many people spend a lifetime wandering away from who God made them to be because they have never recognized who they are in the first place. For example, perhaps you have been a secretary for twenty years. You are at the same level as when you started, even though you dream of being an administrator.
People don’t fulfill their visions because they have no sense of destiny.
We need to be like the apostles, who were known for their acts, not their talk. The biblical book about them is called The Acts of the Apostles because they were doers. They were affecting government. They were transforming the world. Nations were afraid of them, and towns became nervous when they showed up because they were said to have “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6 NKJV).
It’s exciting to be around people who know that they are doing what they were born to do. You should be known for your God-given vision, too.
Father, I want to be known as a doer of Your Word and not a hearer only. I want to understand the vision You have placed in my heart and move toward the fulfillment of that vision. Please help me to do this In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: Be careful—procrastination can become a full-time occupation!
