Sometime last week, I was looking for an item at home and searched almost everywhere in my closet. Suddenly, I found one of my prayer journals and I went through the pages of the book. I saw some of the things I had written down about 10years ago, that was 2006 to be precise. Then it was like it will take forever for the 10years to come! I saw that most of the things I had written down and prayed about happened just the way I wrote them. That is the power of one’s vision.
I remember when the year 2000 started and people started talking about vision 2020, it felt like the year 2020 is so far away. Now we have 4 years to get to the year 2020! What am I trying to pass across? I’m sure you are already asking that question in your mind.
I want you to start setting your goals.. short-term and long term goals if you haven’t. What do you want to achieve in the next 2-6 months (short-term) and what you what to achieve in the next 1 -3 or more years (long-term) if the Lord tarries. Get a journal, write them down, write the vision and make it plain… (Habakkuk 2:2). Commit your goals to God , work hard, and see God bring them to pass. Remember that you cannot get or have what you don’t see. Abraham was instructed to look and he will have as far as he can see. The Lord said to Abram after Lot parted from him. “Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west and all the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever (Gen 13;14-15). The same applies to you reading this , God wants you to dream again, look into the future, what do you see? what do you want God to help you achieve? write them down and commit them into God’s hands. He will bring them to pass. Forget about your past experiences and dream again!! Yes, YOU CAN!!
The fact that you have those things or goals written down does not mean there won’t be challenges, there will be challenges along the way and distractions as well (some of which I had about the goals within the last 10years) but God is faithful to make you overcome them all and give you great success. Yes, YOU CAN….DREAM AGAIN!!
