3 March - Know What You Want In Life

Updated: Mar 6, 2023

Do you know what you want?

Right now, ask yourself who and what is important in your life and then have the courage to build your life around the answer.

God knows you and what will bring you the greatest joy and fulfilment, and because He knows you better than you even know yourself, He will help you to have clarity about what you want if you listen and ask Him to speak to your heart.

As you spend time with Him and allow yourself to dream and imagine, the things He's placed in your heart and mind will come to the surface, and you'll be able to make decisions based on what and who is important to you every day.

Knowing what you want also helps you walk away from those things in your life that are holding you back or that you've outgrown.

It will enable you to make choices to move forward purposely while also motivating you to let go of things and relationships that don't match where you are going anymore.

The Bible gives some helpful advice on remaining focused on our future. It says, "But one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus". (Philippians 3:12-14).

It's why you'll benefit from regularly asking yourself, "what sort of life am I living, what kind do I want, and is there anything I need to let go of?

Hebrews 12:1 in the Bible says," Let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings and entangles us, and let us run….Looking away from all that will distract us to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith".


Today, take twenty minutes to sit with God and dream a little. Then write down your thoughts and the picture of the life you desire.

There is power in seeing beyond where you are today to look into the future to see who you want to be.

Focus every day by spending 20 minutes thinking about what you want your life to be like and then ask God to help you plan and have the wisdom and discipline to choose those things that will lead you to your destiny throughout your day.

Know what you want today and then have the courage to build your life on the answer.

"Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us." (Ephesians 3:20 AMP)

"For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength." (Philippians 4:13 NLT)

"I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11)

Prayer: Lord, please give me wisdom and clarity to know what I want and what I need to let go of so that I might have the life you have planned for me. In Jesus Name, Amen.
