We all want to see clearly, don’t we? There’s nothing more annoying than having to squint, straining our eyes to see what’s right in front of our faces. Yet, for many this is exactly how it is. Something is smeared on the glasses. A contact falls out. A bug lands smack dab on your eyeball! Whatever the case, seeing clearly can be a challenge. Over the course of the next 20 days, I want to invite you to join me and others on a journey of rediscovering God’s vision for our lives, cleaning up the “blurred lines” and helping us refocus our efforts and energies on what is most important to Him.
Over the next 20 minutes consider this verse in these different translations. Allow God to begin to speak to you about Vision and seeing clearly.
18 If people can’t see what God is doing,
they stumble all over themselves;
But when they attend to what he reveals,
they are most blessed.
Proverbs 29:18 The Message
18 When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild.
But whoever obeys the law is joyful.
Proverbs 29:18 NLT
18 Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man]—blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.
Proverbs 29:18 AMP
Have you been stumbling all over yourself?
When was the last time that you felt like you could see clearly? What do you feel has changed since then?
Why do you feel like you need to re-envision some things now?
What needs “re-vision” in your life?
Do you feel like you have done all God has shown you to do before?
Can you articulate what God’s vision is as a whole?
