Write the Vision

By Idelette McVicker

“Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.”
Habakkuk 2:1-3 (NKJ)

Is your life on the right track? From time to time, it’s good to take stock of where you are and how that compares with where you want to be.

Writing down the ideal picture of what you hope your life to be, helps you to be intentional as you live your daily life. Life often happens at such a rapid pace that it’s incredibly clarifying to decide where you would like to go even before you get to the crossroads.

Because I have known where I’ve wanted to go, I have been able to confidently turn down jobs and pursue others. I have been able to seize opportunities when they came my way or create other opportunities that fit the vision.

Writing down the vision of what I wanted for my life has been one of the most powerful exercises I have incorporated into my life. What does your picture of success look like? Why not take some time to write it down today? Then hold it before God in prayer.

Dear God, thank You for showing us this principle of writing down the vision. May we always run towards the purposes You have for our lives. Amen.
