Have a Vision for your life


When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild….” (NLT)

“Where there is no vision, the people perish………”(KJV)

“Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint…..”(NIV)

It is very important for a person to have a vision about his life. Many times we see that people are confused. They want to take some decision but they are not sure about it. Many try to do many things and end up fustrated because they do not find joy in doing it.

But if a person has a Vision or divine guidance about his life then things can be different. God has a plan for every person. Paul says in Ephesians 1:4

“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight”

So even before you were born God has seen you for a purpose in this world. Thats what he told Jeremiah 1:5 ”Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

But many times we don’t pray or seek God’s divince guidance for our life. But if we sit in the presence of God then He will surely revel his plan for our life and give us a vision. Then it will be very easy to take decisions in our life as we know what is God’s will for our life.

A classic example is that of Joshua & Caleb. You can read about it in Numbers 13 & 14. They were sure about what God wanted through life- Land of Cannan. But other 10 people who went out to spy were not sure and hence we see that they lost the promise of God. We see a generation wandering in wilderness for 40 years. Out of all the people who were above 20yrs only 2-Joshua & Caleb entered Cannan the promised land. Joshua led the conquest and Caleb in the end got Horeb as God promised him.

Let me give is three benefits of having a vision in your life:-

  1. Vision will bring Faith
  2. Vision will inspire Courage
  3. Vision will result in Action

They do not Compromise

"They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths." Psalms 119:3 (NLT)

We are living in times when compromise has almost become the rule of life. But its not always called as compromise. Sometimes compromise is shielded under words like tolerance, patience, endurance, love for each other, respect for one another etc. Have you ever thought about it. Most of the time we compromise something or other in our life. There are times when you don't have any other way but to compromise.

But today I want to divert your attention towards things your compromise in your spiritual life. Compromise is a slow poison that ultimately destroys respect for truth. What does that mean? You start with small and end up compromising on big things. This is very much true with our beliefs and convictions about truth and doctrine. First thing we must check in our life that how strong we are in our beliefs and convictions. It will have a direct impact on the fact that how easily we co…

Increase in Wickedness - Love will grow cold

We are living in a time when wickedness has become a sort of style or fashion of the day. If we notice the news and keep track of the things happening all around us then we know that with each day wickedness is not only increasing but getting popular and accepted. What was in the list of wickedness few years ago is no longer there and has become accepted things. Its true with Christians also. Many things which are forbidden in the word of God is slowly creeping in and is becoming part of normal life. Tolerance is a good things but sometimes it can become dangerous in the sense that slowly it can make us cold. Last days I was meditating on a verse. Let me share it with you. Mathew 24:10-13:-

"At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved."
In these verses when J…

Moral Purity in a Corrupt World

We are living in the information age. People have so many ways to get connected to each other. With the wide spread use of Internet came the popularity of services like email, chat, social networking etc. In many cases, privacy of people is compromised as most of the information about a person can be found out with the click of a button. Sometime ago I was reading an article in a leading Journal as how people check social networking sites to find information about a boy or girl when some marriage proposals come. The downside of all this is that people have access to so much information and materials again at just the click of a button. Most of the things we get at the click of a biutton though is not beneficial. Many times it can becomes dangerous.

A common issue expressed by many young people is their addiction to Internet and especially to the filth which is available free of cost. It's free of cost at times but people forget that they are paying a heavy price in regard to destr…
