What do you want

What do you wantWhat do you want?

If God had wanted robots, he would’ve invented artificial intelligence himself instead of allowing us to do it. Far too many people toss the responsibility of being creatively accountable for their own lives. They expect God to tell them what to do and how to do it. Instead of being a person of vision and creativity, we relinquish our responsibility to the throne room and expect God to do all the work. We look to him to tell us to challenge the depth of our potential. We expect him to answer the all-important question. What do you want?

We think praying about it means sitting back and waiting to see what happens. We look at circumstances and watch to see how they unfold instead of visualizing what they can be then exercising faith and effort to bring it to past. Praying about it doesn’t mean you don’t do anything. It means you pray as you take action on the things you are trusting and believing God for.

This whole concept of beginning with the end in mind is about using the power of our creative imagination. It is renewing our mind not to just avoid “thinking on sinful thoughts” or “not thinking negatively,” but to create things that don’t exist. It is to see things that already exist in the spirit realm and then develop the acumen required to make it so.

For most people, the hardest part of beginning with the end in mind is deciding what you want the end to be in the first place. So ask yourself the hard questions. What do you want?

What do you want for your children?
What do you want in your finances?
What do you want in your marriage?
What do you want in your business?
What do you want?
What do you want?
What do you want?

Here’s another anomaly. Some people say, “I want what God wants for me.” God created you with desires and longings for a reason. It was so that you could partner with him to make them come to pass. First Kings Chapter 8 verse 17 says “it was in the heart of David my father to build a house for the name of the Lord God of Israel.” Noticed that it didn’t say it was in the heart of God to build the temple. David desired to build the temple for God because he loved God so much. It wasn’t God‘s desire, it was David’s. God allows us to have creative passions that drive us to pursue things on the earth.

It is the creative passion for the pursuit of something bigger than us that grows our potential. When things are bigger than we can do, we need God’s assistance. We need his partnership. We need his input. We need his angelic support. And the bigger the task before us, the more we need God to do it. That’s why we have to learn to visualize using our imaginations.

So here are more poignant questions.

What is in your heart to do for God? What is the greatest thing you can visualize Him accomplishing through you? What change do you want to create in the earth? What population do you feel tugging at your heart drawing you to serve them?

God does not measure us against others. He measures us against the yardstick of our own potential. God wants what you want more often than you think. He put the want to “to WANT TO” in you in the first place.

Now we have to decide how badly do we want it? And what sacrifices are we willing to make to get it? So what do you want?
