God, What Do You Want Me To Do?

“I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision.” Acts 26:19


When God gives you a vision of what He wants you to do, you will have to go against the flow of the world. Society wants to keep you in a box. Most people are married mentally to the status quo. They want what was, not what can be. They seek safety and simple answers. So, you need to give yourself permission to go a different way, to break new ground.

Paul said, “I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision.” It was his consuming passion and the central focus of his life. He got up every morning thinking about it and went to bed every night thinking about it.

And at the end of his life, he could say, “I have finished the race…Finally, there is laid up for me the crown” (2Timothy 4:7-8).

No one achieves greatness by becoming a generalist. Whether your vision is to build a great family, or a great church, or a great business, or a great “anything,” you must focus. Author Harry A. Overstreet observed: “The immature mind hops from one thing to another; the mature mind seeks to follow through.” Does every area of your life deserve focused thinking time? No. Be selective, not exhaustive in your thinking.

What has God called you to do? What’s your role in it? What skill sets do you need to sharpen? What knowledge do you need to acquire? What relationships do you need to build?

The first question Paul asked when God gave him his vision was, “What do You want me to do?” (Acts 9:6 NKJV). And today that’s the question you need to ask God, too.
