BE DETERMINED IN YOUR VISION OF LIFE!

Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words” (Daniel 10:12).

Every Christian should be determined in his vision of life. A winner does not quit and quitter does not win in life. If you must win, you must be determined and dogged in your vision of life. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that the angel told Daniel, he should not fear, for from the first day that he set his heart to understand, and to humble himself before God, his words were heard; and I have come because of your words. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to be determined in his vision of life. A life that is without a vision is indeed a life that is blinded without focused and direction forever.

Prophet Daniel decided to seek the face of God concerning his vision of life. The Bible says that he humbled himself before God and presented his requests thus, “Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes” (Daniel 9:3). Therefore, whenever a Christian learns to humble himself before God and presents his requests to the Almighty, definitely his requests will be granted in life. As a Christian, be determined in your vision of life by constantly seeking the face of God in prayers, supplications and fasting in life. Hence, a life that is devoid of fasting and prayers is of course a life that is empty to drive a vision in life forever.

The Scriptures made it clear that the very first day that Prophet Daniel decided to seek the face of God in his vision of life, God granted his requests but the prince of the kingdom of Persia delayed the answers to his requests for twenty-one days in life (Daniel 10:13). Thank God that Prophet Daniel did not give up but intensified his prayer with fasting in life. In fact, every Christian is expected to be determined just like Prophet Daniel if he must fulfill his ministry and destiny in life. He should be vehement in his determination and never to give up in life no matter the situations and challenges. Therefore, a life that is full of vision is indeed a life that can never be defeated no matter the circumstances and challenges in life forever.

Daily Tip: Anyone who wants to be fulfilled in His vision of life should learn to be determined through fasting and prayers just like Prophet Daniel in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer (Romans 12:12).
