2020 vision

Sit in silence for a couple of minutes. Close your eyes and notice what you hear, if anything. Do you see shadows? Do you see shades of light? Where does your mind go? What is lingering in your heart?

Read this portion of Psalm 27

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked advance against me
to devour me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.

4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.

What things need to shift in your heart or mind?

How has fear played into your perspective lately?

The writer said there was one thing that was important to him. He had to shift his view. What is one thing that you can shift, in order to have the right perspective?

Instead of focusing on externals focus on…

Instead of fear focus on…

Instead of enemies, focus on …

Reflect and write.

One thought on “Shift: 20/20 Vision August 14

  1. These are great questions to encourage reflection. As I reflect on this passage, I realize that fear in my life is actually failure – failure to trust God to manage my life according to His plan. My focus needs to shift from fear to faith.
