Having a vision for your life

12 May 2023 ‘Your young men [and women] shall see visions.’ Joel 2:28 NKJV

When you ask a little child what they want to be when they grow up, they might say something like a firefighter, or a doctor, or a famous actor. The ability to dream is a gift that God has placed within each of us. If we want to fulfil our life’s potential, we need a vision. Joseph’s vision didn’t happen until he was thirty, but he received it from God when he was a teenager. And God will give you a vision, too: ‘Your young men [and women] shall see visions.’ Right now you might be thinking about all the different options for your life, and even experimenting with some. That’s okay, you’re still getting to know yourself – your strengths and weaknesses, what you’re drawn to, and what you have no interest in at all. If you focus your thinking on only one thing and your hopes change, then you’ve effectively wasted your best mental energy. But as you grow and mature, you need to narrow things down and become more selective. There’s an old saying that goes, ‘A man who chases two rabbits catches neither.’ When you receive a God-given vision, it has power. It’s like a fire burning within you. It might be a full-time vocation or a part-time hobby, but it’s the thing you’ll find the most fulfilling. Paul wrote, ‘This one thing I do’ (Philippians 3:13 KJV). As a result, he changed history, and today, churches and cathedrals are named after him. Today, pray this simple prayer: ‘Lord, give me a vision for my life!’
