God Has A Bigger Vision For Your Life

God Has A Bigger Vision For Your Life

What vision do you have for your life? 

It’s not a question that people often think about, but it’s essential to think about it if you want to make a difference with your one life. You were made for something more than just being happy and successful or being able to afford all the stuff you might want to buy. The truth is that you were made to make an eternal difference.
Most people think too small about their lives. They have small hopes, small dreams, small goals, and small expectations. Small thoughts lead to small lives. But God has a bigger vision for your life. His vision is that you would spend your one life pursuing the things that matter most, the things that last forever.
Settling for a smaller, less significant vision is like building a sandcastle on the beach. When you’re done, the tide rises, and the waves wash it all away. James 4.14 NLT says, “Your life is like the morning fog – it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” That’s why God calls us to give our best to Jesus and His mission instead of wasting our limited time, effort, and energy on things that won’t matter in the end.
Ultimately, Jesus is the one who will evaluate the success and goodness of your life. On that day, it won’t be about how much money you made or how many friends you had. What will matter is whether or not you knew Him and made Him known. Those are the things that matter most.

What are you going to do with your life?

You can dream small, or you can adopt a bigger vision. You can focus on temporary things with little significance, or you can focus on eternal things with lasting significance. The choice is yours.
At this point, I want to challenge you to take the next step on your spiritual journey. You know how to walk with God, and you know how to reach your world. But the key to a life of genuine significance lies in what’s next. 
If you’re up for it, your life could be the catalyst that ignites a movement that continues long after you’re gone and stretches all the way to eternity itself. That’s the bigger vision that God has for you. Can you see it? Will you pursue it?
