Exodus 9:16
“And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.”

Abraham Lincoln, we would think, had no idea just how largely his life would impact the rest of the world. He most likely didn’t know he was going to be President. He didn’t know he would work to free the slaves (although he wanted to from a young age). Basically, how could Abraham Lincoln accomplish the things he eventually would do, as a young Kentucky farm boy? Because he lived with vision.

Sometimes, all you need is a clearly defined, achievable goal to work toward to feel fulfilled in your day. You might complain sometimes, “I’m not accomplishing much,” but really, you are always working toward something if you are a Believer. God has a purpose for every second of your life and He has a vision to prosper you and make you strong in the faith. Perhaps, for some of us, that purpose won’t end up where we might want it to. But God has something special for us to do and we have to work toward His vision.

Sometimes, all that is required is to just do the best you can do at whatever you are currently doing and trust God to open the doors. Sometimes we need a little more courage to walk through them, but God will open the right doors in His time. God has purposed His Believers to show His glory and power to the earth. Live for that purpose. Live for Him. Go and fight for something.

Don’t just lay around, but go and fight for God’s vision.
  
65-0206 “Doors In Door”
One of the greatest Presidents I think the nation ever had was Lincoln. Not because that he come from Kentucky, but because he was a great man. He was deprived of an education, but yet was something in his heart, some purpose. I like a man of vision. I like people that's got something they're fighting for, just not just lay around, "Well, ever what comes along will be all right." Oh, be up and at it! And Lincoln never let his education stand in the way; he had something to do. I think every Christian ought to be that way, find your purpose and go do it. Every member of this chapter, just not, "Well, we have a breakfast once a month," that isn't it, "or once every Saturday." Have a purpose in life, something you're going to do. God has placed you here; do something about it, every member of every church.
