Life Coaching from Nehemiah
Visionary people see the opposite of what most people see. Because Visionary people THINK the opposite!
Jonathan Swift said, ”Vision is the art of seeing the invisible.” Have you considered Nehemiah’s vision & creative process?
1. Pray & Dream 2. Survey the Land & Assess the Needs. 3. Ask for what you want. 4. Then, Ask for MORE!
Life Coaching from Nehemiah. He threw off any anxiety or fears he may have had because his vision for building a wall for Israel was the most important thing.
****** My Vision is GREATER than my fears ******
As Nehemiah rode around the broken city, I believe he could see what he would create. He had a vision for the wall that was to be built. First he saw a deep need. Then he embraced the challenge & believed that God could use him to create something important, costly, needed, & HUGE.
What has God put on your heart? Something huge? Costly? Important? He has the power to do it. Our job is to pray, ask, & act in faith. Not to dwell on limitations. God was ready to give Israel a great gift. It took Nehemiah to see it, believe it, & receive it. I’m ready. Are you?
Consider Moses… Maybe in the beginning he was afraid & did not see the full vision that God was imparting to him to set a nation of captives free. But he left his fears behind & moved forward to victory.
On the other hand, let’s check out Joshua & Caleb. The men that went in before them were fearful & did not have the vision. But Joshua & Caleb came back & said, “Let’s take the land!” They could envision taking & inhabiting the land.
God gave these men a challenge & they took heart, believed God, & rose to the challenge. Can you embrace your God given challenge & state your vision? Putting words to your vision is a powerful first step. I coach people to understand that God is a God of ABUNDANCE! His mercies & gifts are UNENDING! The problem is that some people’s spiritual mindset is not ready to receive it. Mine IS!!! Join me in embracing ALL that God has for us & our lifes’ purpose! WAHOOO!!! Let’s move forward together to change the world!
