‘Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he’ Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)
It is important to have a vision of what you are called to do. You need to have a goal, something to aim towards. Imagine a game of football. While it may be enjoyable to have a ‘kick-around’, unless you are aiming to score a goal, you will just be killing time if all you do is pass the ball between you. Having a goal in life will keep you on track; on the right road, going in the right direction, towards the end result you are striving for. Having a vision is like having a sat-nav in the car; providing you with constant instruction, guidance and direction, taking you from where you are currently, to where you want to be. If you have no vision of where you are aiming for, don’t be surprised if you just drive around in circles. Vision is motivating so even when you are tired and the journey hard, you will keep going. Vision stirs up passion and desire in you, so that you can enjoy the journey, and feel a sense of achievement when you get there. Ask Yehovah for a personal vision for your life. It will usually, if not always be connected to the talents and abilities, passions and desires, that Yehovah has put within you. What do you enjoy, what are you enthusiastic about? Without a clear vision of where you are going, how you are going to get there, and what should you be doing on the way? Otherwise you will perish, just like fruit becomes unproductive and starts to rot if picked but left unused. Don’t let your life stagnate while you wander in circles!
