Personal Vision Workbook - 1. Understanding Vision

The following is from my Personal Vision Workbook. Read the introduction and legal stuff.


God has a plan, a vision, for your life. Before you were even born, God knew what He wanted you to do and be – a legacy He wanted you to pass on to future generations.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” - Jeremiah 29:10

Intentionally seeking God’s vision for your life is the single most important thing you can do as a Christian.

Be careful not to mistake your own ambition and desires for God’s vision. Vision is not dreaming up your biggest dream, it is discovering what God has called and created you to do.

Baseline Vision Test

Please spend at least 5 minutes in prayer before answering:
What is your understanding of God’s vision for “The Church?”

What is your current understanding of God’s vision for your life?
