The Bible on Written Vision & Goals

If you’re new to Life Compass, on Sundays I write on spirituality & faith. You can learn more by clicking here.

Over the last few posts, we’ve talked about the importance of writing down your vision for your life (your definition of success) and goals to achieve the vision.

Getting goals out of your head and onto paper is the first step toward their achievement.

I’ve noticed that the Bible has something to say about writing your vision and goals:

Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. Habakkuk 2:2

In this scripture, the Lord had an important vision that he wants Habakkuk to write down and deliver to the people.  It’s a message that will impact them at a future time.

My take on it:

  • We need to write down the visions God gives us for our life, and be willing to take action on them.
  • Vision needs to be plainly written down before we can achieve it.
  • The vision needs to stay in front of us – it needs to be posted in a place where we can “run with it”.  The more we keep the vision in front of us, the more we’re motivated to take action.
  • Writing the vision down gives it greater permanence and importance for our lives.

Have you caught a vision from God that is in your head, but not written down yet?  If so, take some time to write it down today, and think of some steps you can take to put that vision into action.
