THE ROAD MAP TO ACHIEVING YOUR VICTORY IS FOUND IN JESUS
THE TIME TO ACT ON THE VISION IS NOW
From the beginning of this year we have provided you with a road map from the word of God on the path He wants you to follow to help you make this year the year you ACHIEVE the VICTORY that you have been seeking all your life. Today, we continue with God’s road map in laying out a clear VISION that will help you move forward by taking action to manifest your dreams into reality, and “THE ROAD MAP TO ACHIEVING YOUR VICTORY IS FOUND IN JESUS!”
Achieving the VICTORY requires you to take action. The first step was when God gave you the VISION; He
told you to, “WRITE THE VISION.” God made it crystal clear that you must take action before the VISION will appear as a reality to you. In other words you must activate what God has given to you in order for you to begin the process where you find yourself going through. The process is never going to be easy, but it is a necessary step that must take place.
One of the reasons so many of us never achieve any desired results from what has been set before us, is because we dislike going through the process. We fail to write it down; we fail to ask God for wisdom, guidance and understanding. We fail to seek knowledge and clarification of where we are in the process. Then we come up against what seems like a brick wall when door after door is been slam shut in our face. We stand in front of the door and look at it with disgust and ask ourselves, “WHY?” But we refuse to take the next step and KNOCK, because fear has so gripped our minds and we find ourselves questioning our own ability to achieve what God has already given us.
However, I want you to know that the Bible is crystal clear on what God wants you to do in this process. God’s intention is to teach you how to be successful at achieving the VISION which he has given to you. Now listen to the words of Jesus, “So I say to you, Ask and keep on asking and it shall be given you; seek and keep on seeking and you shall find; knock and keep on knocking and the door shall be opened to you.”
For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened.” (Luke 11:9-10 Amplified)
Do not hesitate to move on your ideas and respond to situations that call for action in order to keep the momentum going. If you are sitting waiting for something to happen, doing other “important” tasks rather than those that you know will produce the results you desire, you are wasting time and you are no closer to achieving your VISION and desired goals, [the vision which God gave you]. You may realize that you have waited for so many things in your life that never showed up!
Act on your desire in order to get to where you want to be. Waiting will not do it. The best people are not those who have waited for chances, but those who have taken them, and made chance the servitor. It is better to act first and apologize later than to seek permission first. We often wait for the feeling to be right first; before we take the action we know will bring us satisfaction. The feeling of satisfaction only comes from accomplishment, not from pondering and procrastinating. Take immediate action, not out of fear, or to force things to happen, but because the next action you take brings you, one-step closer to your desire and you will see tremendous results come into your life.
Now I realize that this might sound like a contradiction in terms of what God said when he told us to wait on the VISION. But understand this, God was challenging us to have patience, and believe in the promise he had given to us when he said, “though the vision may tarry, the VISION will surely come.”
Sometimes opportunity knocks but sometimes you must knock. If you truly desire what is behind the door, you will knock until it opens. Sometimes you may even have to break down the door to get through to what you want. The difference between using the force out of power and using the force out of fear, doubt or worry, is that when you are powerful, you know what it is you are doing and are doing it powerfully. It does not feel forced but liberating to you.
Remember, all things come to those of us who, seek, ask and knock. “THE ROAD MAP TO ACHIEVING YOUR VICTORY IS FOUND IN JESUS!” Never give up, and never give in, because you are truly a winner, and a winner never gives up, and never gives in. Jesus said, He would never put on you more than you can not bear, nor would He ever leave you are for sake you, and you can always stand on the promises of the Lord.
