If you’ve ever said “I don’t know what to do with my life,” it’s time to start connecting with God and grabbing hold of His vision instead. Let these seven tips help you discover your purpose.
1. “Inquire of the blueprint.”
God has a blueprint or intelligent design plan created for each and every one of our lives. Ask Him and learn what He had in mind when He made you. Get the original idea God had for your life!
2. “Get clarity and direction.”
Ask questions, pray and journal in order to get clarity. When you get a vision of God’s purpose, continue to seek guidance so that you will be moving in the direction of your provision.
3. “Write it down.”
You’ve got a vision, now it’s time to get a plan. A plan is a documented desire which is hopefully a desire that God has planted in your heart. Once you write down the plan it puts pressure on the work to advance to the next level…manifesting.
4. “Take action steps daily.”
Create action items for your plan and make mini-goals on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. This can be one of the most stressful steps in the process but remember this, “The plans of the heart belong to the man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord, ” Proverbs 16:1.
5. “Develop an accountability team.”
Assemble an entourage of vision accountability partners that will keep the vision at the forefront and prevent it from falling by the wayside. When obstacles and opposition come, these encouragers will motivate you to keep at it.
6. “Move in the vision’s direction until you get a red light.”
Start moving forward being careful to take God on the journey. Be watchful. If you get red lights, adhere to them and get guidance on how to course correct.
7. “Refine as you get more insight.”
Your purpose is fixed, your plans are not. You may have to go back to the drawing board on figuring out the plan as more revelation is brought forth. Don’t be afraid to refine and revise the plan
