THE NEED FOR VISION AND FOCUS

THE POWER OF A FOCUSED LIFE – MIKE BICKLE
THE NEED FOR VISION AND FOCUS
Where there is no vision, the people perish. (Proverbs 29:18, KJV)
Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint (Proverbs 29:18)
COMPONENTS OF A FOCUSED LIFE
Overall life vision – primary purpose in life
Life goals – applying my life vision to each specific area of my life. Long-term goals (over 10 years) and short-term goals (3 months–3 years)
Spiritually (prayer time, fasting days, Bible study, etc.)
Relationally (family, friends, etc.)
Vocation (marketplace calling, etc.)
Ministry (in the church, outside the church, etc.)
Economically (spending, giving, saving, investing, etc.)
Physically (exercise, health, diet, etc.)
Rest (recreation, vacation, play, entertainment, sports, etc.)
Action plan – for each long and short-term goal in each area of your life.
Schedule – for each action plan, i.e., focuses us to prioritize. This is where our
life vision most easily is derailed and lost.
The Lord says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you.” 15 See then that you walk wisely, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. (Ephesians 5:14–17)
