As we approach a new year with excitement, we can look back at 2013 you might’ve had a great year maybe things went well. Or maybe, your year was filled with pain, loss, or broken dreams, the great thing is as people with vision we get to start new you have a fresh start in 2014.
A beginning of understanding keys to achieving your personal destiny and call upon the earth will bring you tremendous peace. God designed you to win, to be an over-comer in this life. This does not mean you and I will not suffer set backs, trials and tests along the way. But this is not the end.
God has put in your heart the desire to achieve and do well. Why? He loves you and he wants you to be a blessing and share because you are his child.
One reason this nation has been great is we understand the responsibility and power to share. As we have helped many under-developed and hurting nations, God has blessed us tremendously. God has placed within each person a vision that is designed to give purpose and meaning to life. The Bible says without vision people parish, that means they have no direction, no clarity and no purpose.
Finding God’s vision is the key to fulfilling your life’s purpose. When you locate what God has put you on the earth to do and when you do it, you will sense and capture a peace and contentment that people are looking for. Knowing why you exist gives you direction on how to prepare and plan for your life.
An example is when you find out you’re designed to be a farmer, you learn you don’t mind to be outside or even getting dirty. If your call is toward medicine and the health field you will discover that being clean and sanitized is part of the deal.
The Bible talks about finding your purpose and you can begin to prepare and plan so you can proceed with your passions and life. 1 Timothy 4:15 says “be diligent in these matters, give yourself wholey to him, so that everyone may see your progress.” As people see your progress and the gifts that God has given to you your talents, your abilities, and the anointing on your life, becomes apparent to all.
So when you find what you are called to do, and begin to do it, it will bring these blessings to you great peace, joy and release passion in your life.
So don’t give up on life, don’t settle for average or mediocrity no matter what your age or position in life. It is never too late to step into God’s plan. According to the Bible and 3 John 2, God wants you to prosper, be in health, as your soul prospers.
God is a good God he has a great plan for your life, he wants us just to trust him, so don’t sell yourself short, commit your life to the lord Jesus, get his plan, make the adjustments and go for it.
