What Is Your Vision Of The End Result Of Your Job Search?
“Write down the revelation (vision)
and make it plain on tablets
so that a herald may run with it.”
Keep your eye on the goal! If you’ve ever run track, you know how important that is. When you’re steaming toward the finish line, you don’t glance around to see where other runners are, you don’t look at the fans, you don’t even look at your coach. You focus single-mindedly on the tape.
That could be a definition of vision: eyes focused on the end results. Sometimes that’s difficult when you aren’t sure what that end result will be. That could be the case in your job search. You’re not sure what that vision includes…You’re in good company.
When Joseph was sitting in prison (Genesis 41), I’m sure he had no specific vision of the end result—being placed in the role of Prime Minister. When Saul had his encounter with the Lord on the road to Damascus in Acts, I’m sure he had no vision of becoming one of the leading spokesmen for Christianity. When Elijah was running for his life from Jezebel in 1 Kings 19, I’m sure he had no vision that he would anoint Elisha and meet the Lord without dying. They didn’t, but God did.
Your job is to focus…
When you focus on the tape at the end of your race, it’s not an elaborate picture. It’s just a string across the track lanes, and your mental image of you breaking that string. Your vision can be the same, your focus should be: you doing the tasks included in the work that you do with a smile of fulfillment on your face. You won’t know the specific environment, the layout of the space in the organization, or the people you’ll be working with. But God does.
What do you see when you close your eyes and envision the end of your search? Keep your focus on your goal, you do the work, but allow God to plant the vision of a fulfilled job search that puts you in the best place for you to express who you are. You don’t know where that will be but He does.
