Creating a mental picture of the future provides a target to advance toward. With God’s guidance, we should create a clear visual picture of where we desire to be in the future.
Our will is the gatekeeper for decisions we make about distractions encountered. We can either choose to act on distractions or we can choose to stay focused on the visual picture of God’s future destiny for our life.
The Lord provides us with a road map to travel on life’s highway. We need to stay in the right lane of life or we will find ourselves taking detours that lead to dead-ends. The most direct access to our future destiny is by following God’s direction and plan.
We should consistently seek the Lord’s help to keep our guard up so that distractions don’t impact our thoughts and heart. We get this help through God’s word and promise. Proverbs 4:23 tells us to “guard our heart.” Keeping our heart right will further ensure that we are aligned with God’s plan for our future.
Remember: Whatever dominates our soul will likely be experienced in our life.
“We are limited, not by our abilities, but by our vision – anonymous.
