VISION REQUIRES A PLAN!
Updated: Jun 22, 2022
“It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.” (Ephesians 1:11-12 MSG)
Only through You, Jesus, will I come to know who I really am. My eyes are on You. I am seeking You for direction to walk in my purpose and the fullness of who You created me to be.
Thank You for planning for me, seeing me, designing me to be a part of the overall purpose You are working out in everything and everyone. Abba, You created me for glorious living in You through Jesus. I am forever grateful.
“Ideas are seeds of destiny planted by God in the minds of humankind according to His will. When ideas are cultivated, they become imagination. Imagination, if it is watered and developed, becomes a plan. Finally, if a plan is followed, it becomes reality.” (Dr. Myles Munroe)
Seeds of destiny
Planted by God
Ideas must be:
Ideas then become:
Thank You Abba Father for planting seeds of destiny in me. Show me how to cultivate, water, and develop these seeds of destiny inside of me. Help me to create a plan where these seeds of destiny become reality. Let the seeds of destiny placed in me manifest into the world.
“For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it—lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’?” (Luke 14:28-30 NKJV)
I will count the cost to begin to plan. With Your help show me how to fine tune my ideas so they align with Your heart. I will remain patient as I work through the process. I will stay focused so I can reach the finish line.
I’m looking to You to show me the way. When I don’t know how to get somewhere while driving, I turn on the GPS for directions that help me navigate to my destination. I need You to do the same thing with the seeds of destiny You have entrusted to me. Show me how to manifest them in the world. Abba Father, I lay down my dreams, plans, and hopes at Your feet for Your direction, correction, and fine tuning.
Thank You Abba Father for this reminder about planning:
“Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.” (Proverbs 21:5 NLT)
This is my closing prayer found in Your Word that I am standing on as I work on this:
“May he grant your heart’s desires and make all your plans succeed.” (Proverbs 20:4 NLT)
