Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no VISION, the people perish”
Proverbs 19:21 “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails”
The good things in life are far too important to be left up to chance. Relationships – particularly with wives and kids, careers, lifestyle… these are things that you CANNOT leave to luck alone.
This week, prayerfully cast (or re-cast) a VISION for an area of your life that you’ve let slip into idleness (which we all do!). Work toward that VISION, rather than letting life happen to you.
My VISION is to be consistent in showing warmth and affection to my wife – where laziness and living by chance alone makes me hot-and-cold, which is confusing as heck to her.
Here’s a good resource to help you categorically cast vision in your life; https://www.life.church/chazown/
