Recently a man from our congregation shared that he had had a dream about Rabbi and himself. They were up high in the sky. He and Rabbi were looking down at the ground where there was a bullseye. As they were looking at the bullseye, Rabbi suddenly dove down without a parachute. He was aiming straight towards the bullseye, and with great force he landed perfectly into that bullseye.
How about you, are you focused upon and aiming toward the bullseye, i.e., the purpose of your life?! Whatever we aim at is where we will land. As we enter a new year, it’s time to step back from all the details of everyday life in order to see and gain God’s big eternal perspective. Let’s release our own thoughts and ideas to become God’s arrow that He draws back into Himself, then points and releases, directing us straight into the bullseye of our unique and specific life’s call and purpose. By His power and directing we will hit our bullseye, but our hearts must melt into His hands and heart so we can be directed with the power and force of His Spirit straight toward His goal for our lives. In taking moments with our Majesty every day we’ll stay focused on His destiny for us. He’s told us that the first and primary goal of our lives is to love Him with all our heart and strength. That’s where we are drawn into Himself to receive His heart, Spirit and perspective that empowers us to direct all our time and efforts towards what will multiply and prosper for Him and His Kingdom.
Let’s hit the goal, or “bullseye,” of our lives by drawing back to seek the Lover of our souls with all our heart and strength each day. Not by might nor by power, but by His Spirit we accomplish His unique call and will for our lives!
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Messiah Jesus. Philippians 3:14
I am so happy that I have found Jesus again!
You always seemed to know what I needed when I needed it
My 7 year old son Jacob watches your show with me every week.
Rabbi, thank you for boldly proclaiming truth!
I wanted you to know, I am now a Lover of Jesus Christ
