COMMIT YOUR PLANS TO GOD, THEN MOVE!


“Discovering and implementing your personal vision is a process of learning about yourself, growing in your relationship with and knowledge of the Lord, and continually finetuning your understanding of the vision God has given you.” (Dr. Myles Munroe)


“Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.” (Proverbs 16:3 AMPC)


“Before you do anything, put your trust totally in God and not in yourself. Then every plan you make will succeed.” (Proverbs 16:3 TPT)


“Put God in charge of your work, then what you’ve planned will take place.” (Proverbs 16:3 MSG)


FAITH CONFESSION:


I commit my plans and my works wholly to You, Abba Father. I look to You Abba to cause my thoughts to become agreeable to Your will. I won’t do anything without consulting You first. I trust Your direction over my own and surrender to You. You are in charge, not me. I roll it all over to You knowing that in You my plans will be established and succeed. I am firmly anchored in you.


“Review your personal vision on a regular basis. At least every six months to a year, set aside a block of time to pray about and reevaluate where you are in relation to your vision. If you never develop a blueprint, God will have nothing to direct you in. My prayer is that you will stop the construction of your life right where it is and go back and draw solid blueprints that will lead you where you want to go through the vision God has put in your heart.” (Dr. Myles Munroe)


What wisdom in what Dr. Myles Munroe said. How can God direct us if we don’t have a plan? We can’t leave planning in the abstract. Our plans must be written so we can review, fine tune, and be encouraged by them. Encouragement becomes key when you feel like it’s not coming together.


“And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.” (Habakkuk 2:2-3 AMPC)


God told us to write the vision and He tells us why:


So, we can see it and read it easily and quickly


Then He gives us a promise:


There is an appointed time for the vision to manifest.

The vision will come to fulfillment in its appointed time.


He then encourages us:


No matter how long it takes, don’t give up! It will come to pass right on time!


I’m checking to see if I’m on track. Knowing where I am in relation to God’s vision for me is critical because it’s so easy to be derailed, especially by good things that are not my God assignment. The enemy is deceptive and has one agenda and that is to steal, kill, and destroy our lives. Thankfully, Jesus came that we might have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance, to the full, till it overflows. I’m Team Jesus!


“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” (John 10:10 AMPC)


Dr. Munroe mentioned steps to writing your vision in his devotional, “Vision with Purpose and Power: A 90-Day Devotional.” I highly recommend this book if you really want to pursue purpose and remember:


IT’S. NOT. TOO. LATE!


I’m going to share two steps Dr. Munroe gave us in today’s devotional:


  1. Eliminate Distractions – Sit down somewhere by yourself, away from any distractions and responsibilities, and allow yourself some uninterrupted time to think about your purpose and vision. Do this as often as you develop your plan.

  2. Find Your True Self – Until you know who you are, why God created you, and why you’re here, life will simply be a confusing experiment. Answering the following questions will help give you clarity and confidence regarding your personal identity.

  • Who am I?

  • Who am I in relation to God?

  • Where do I come from as a person?

  • How have I been created like my Source? (See Genesis 1:26-28)

  • Why am I here?

Next write your personal purpose statement. Ask yourself, “What is my reason for existence as a human being? (Dr. Myles Munroe)
