What Is A God-inspired Vision? – part 15
Life is full of distractions. Important things are often sacrificed for urgent things. The next time that you are tempted to do something that would distract you from the vision that God has given to you, you’ll have to make a conscious decision to keep working towards the vision.
How do you deal with the distractions that will come your way?
A God-inspired vision will have to deal with distractions.
Here are three ways to deal with these top three distractions that can derail a vision:
1. Other Opportunities. To accomplish the most important things, we must learn to say “no” to some good things.
2. Criticism. Don’t waste your time focusing on those who may criticize you. Pour out your heart to God and then get back to work.
3. Fear. At some point in the vision, you’ll want to run in fear. We all think about the “what ifs” and will be afraid of failing, but you can’t let fear distract you.
1 Corinthians 7:35(NLT)
“…I want you to do whatever will help you serve the Lord best, with as few distractions as possible.”
The Point Is: Keep your eyes focused on the vision.
Prayer: “Today I’m remembering, Lord, that you have a deeper purpose for the vision than what is
visible on the surface, and I’m going to continue to trust in You!”
Next time: When people look at what you are doing, do they see just you? Or do they see God at work through you?
