"Just say a simple, ‘Yes, I will,’ or ‘No, I won’t.’ Anything beyond this is from the evil one." (Matthew 5:37 NLT)
It's really that simple. Yes or No. Remember, no is a complete sentence. When I explain my no, I invite people to provide ways to work around my no to change it to a yes. While yes benefits them it may be a distraction for me, potentially stopping my forward motion to walking in vision. I must stay true to my vision. If a yes distracts from vision, then my answer must be no.
"If you want to be successful, you must set priorities for yourself in relation to your vision." (Dr. Myles Munroe)
I must understand and value prioritizing in executing the steps to fulfilling vision. Without priorities I may make wrong, or less effective and timely, decisions. I must make priorities that allow me to be in sync with God's timing.
"Whatever we are doing now is our tomorrow." (Dr. Myles Munroe)
Every choice I make today impacts the quality of my life tomorrow. I must be intentional about what I am focusing on and what I am spending my time on.
I must be FOCUSED:
F = Faith
O = Overcoming
C = Challenges
U = Using
S = Scripture (for)
E = Eternal
D = Direction
"If you want to fulfill your dream, you must fix your eyes on it and not get caught up in anything that won't take you there." (Dr. Myles Munroe)
I am dream focused.
I am vision focused.
I am purpose focused.
I will ask this question before saying yes to things:
Is this choice moving me toward destiny or away from destiny?
Be Encouraged! ❤
