Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS
In an earlier devotional I mentioned the fact that many people are just going through the motions of living. They work, they eat, they sleep and then when they are off work they spend their time trying to forget that they have to start it all over again. Instead of making the most of their lives they are just flowing with the currents of life hoping some day to drift into the port of some dream paradise.
Someone once said that Christopher Columbus was just lucky. He started out not knowing where he was going, when he got there he didn't know where he was and when he got back he didn't know where he had been. To add to all that he did it all on borrowed money. Maybe Columbus had something that did make it all happen, he had a vision. He had a vision of new routes to an old world but wound up discovering a new one.
Many today are doing the same as Christopher Columbus only they lack the vision. Do you have a vision? Are you working toward specific goals in your life or are you just floating on the currents of circumstances hoping to make a happy landing at some port some day. It is your life. You should decide where you want to steer it.
I hope you receive a blessing from the next few devotionals concerning having a vision.
