Vital signs- Thursday, September 16th, 2021


Be Specific About Your Future In order to get to where you want to be, you need to describe exactly what you want. For instance, Abraham told Eliezer exactly what kind of wife he wanted for Isaac. He told him to go back to the land of his relatives instead of picking Isaac's wife from among the Canaanite women. You will never reach a vague goal. The more general it is, the less power it has. But the more specific it is, the more power it has in your life. Ask yourself these four questions:

1) What does God want me to be?

2) What does God want me to do?

3) What does God want me to have?

4) Why does He want me to have it?


You can't just know the what, you need to know the why - that's your motivation. If you don't know why, you will give up when it gets tough. When Eliezer heard Abraham's goal, he started asking "What if?" If you listen to the what-ifs of your goal, you will fail because of worry and fear. You don't need to focus on the how for now because, once you figure out the why, God will show you how. He will help you solve the problems that stand in the way of your goal.


“and I will make you swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell; but you shall go to my country and to my family, and take a wife for my son Isaac.””

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭24:3-4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
