Why You Should Write Down Your Vision

Writing your vision down can make clear your future and where you are going. Do you have a clear vision of what you want your future to be? Do you have a fixed goal written down with a target date set?
It is vital that we know exactly what we want out of life. We must know where we are headed, and we must keep a fixed goal in view. It makes no difference if we want a better job, a new house, a new car, or just a new pair of shoes. We must have a fixed idea before we'll ever attain what we are after, and we must have it written down on paper.
We must be definite on what it is that we desire and not consistently changing our minds according to our moods on any given day. James 1:6-8 says, "Let him ask in faith with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. Let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord, for he is a double-minded man in all his ways."
Many people go through the lip-service act of saying their prayers without the slightest belief that those prayers will be answered. Consequently, they are NOT answered and the same people will scratch their heads and wonder why God is not answering their prayers.
Jesus said, "According to your faith, let it be done unto you" (Matt 9:29). How can anything "be done unto you" if you are not exercising your faith in what you desire?
If God wanted to include an eleventh commandment, I believe it would be this, "Thou shalt not fake thyself out!"
Believing is knowing that something will happen - good or bad. You have not a single doubt that it WILL happen. You completely trust and KNOW that it will happen.
If you believe in your God-given dream, then get your goals written down with a target date set. Be definite about what you are asking God for, and stick to it. In Habakkuk 2:2-3, it says, "Write the vision and make it plain on tablets that he may run who reads it for the vision is yet for an appointed time."
So, know where you are headed in life. Be clear on your vision and get a fixed goal written down with a target date set as soon as possible!
