Your Redemptive Purpose 1
“But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:”
Another character of a God-given vision is that it is redemptive in nature. In other words, vision serves a higher purpose than mere selfish ambition and personal aggrandizement. For instance, if you have a vision from God to go into politics it is because there is something in line with God’s redemptive plan He wants you to do that will transform lives.
When you study the history of American presidents, you will read about one of the presidents of America called Abraham Lincoln. As part of his legacy as the 16th American president you will find the emancipation of the slaves. When you study about him as a person, you will discover that going into politics was what he was born to do and when he was able to get there, God used him to carry out a divine agenda that shaped America. Have you located what God wants you to do with your life?
In the history of Abraham Lincoln, it is recorded that he encountered a lot of failures in his life but when he ran for president, he won because of what God wanted to accomplish through him as president.
What has God called you to do? If He has called you to start a school? Go for it. Start from where you are and start with what you have. You can start by having lessons for students and before long the lesson will become a school.
Always remember that your eternal significance and greatness is in doing what God has called you to do.
Please read Colossians 1:9, Colossians 4:12 and pray that God will cause you to function in the center of His will for your life always.
