Be single minded

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways 

The bible says "he that is wavered is like a wave of the sea driven with wind and tossed, for let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the lord, a double minded man is unstable in all his ways" (James 1:6-8, KJV)

We should pray and ask the Holy Spirit, to give us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for. A dream that is not clear, won't help us get anywhere. It doesn't take much effort to let our mind drift and dream. But it takes great effort to set our mind to the task of developing a clear goal of having a clear and compelling dream.

What do you want to accomplish? What do you want to contribute? Who do you want to become in God? What does success look like for you without God? Simple! There is no true success if God is not in it as He is the source of all things the Alpha and Omega.

The whole process begins with questions we must ask ourselves. The dream is always rooted in the dreamer in his or her experiences, circumstances, talents and opportunities.

Proverbs 4:25: "let your eyes look straight ahead and your eyelids look right before you". You may ask what am I feeling? What are my emotions telling me? What am I sensing? What is my intuition telling me? What am I seeing? What  is happening around me? What am I hearing? What are others saying? What am I thinking? What do my intellect and common sense say?
In all these questions the only way to get answers and achieve any of them is to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, and be led by the Holy Spirit without any doubt or wavering. Mark 9:24 "Lord I believe, help my unbelief".

A clear picture may come to you all at once, but for most people it doesn't work that way. Most of us need to keep working at it. Clarifying it, redrawing it. If the process is difficult, that's no reason to give up. In fact if it's too easy, maybe we're not dreaming big enough.

Just keep working on it, because a clear dream is worth fighting for. If we can get a clear sense of who God is! who God says we are in Him! We are well on our way to understanding and embracing our purpose driven life God put us on the earth for.

Moses spent the first two thirds of his life working out what God wanted him to do. trying to do things his own way, only to fail. But he had a heart for God, and a vision from God and eventually he succeeded. 

In conclusion I want to leave you with these words from 1 Kings 18:21: and Elijah came to all the people and said, "how long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God follow Him, but if baal follow him". but the people answered him not a word.
