Read 2 Corinthians 4:18
18 We set our eyes not on what we see but on what we cannot see. What we see will last only a short time, but what we cannot see will last forever.
As you consider your vision for the coming season, consider the following thoughts:
What kind of faith will be required for you to accomplish this vision from God?
Does your vision require faith at all?
6 Without faith no one can please God. Anyone who comes to God must believe that he is real and that he rewards those who truly want to find him.
Is your vision also a dream? Is your dream bigger than your vision? Are they the same?
I will pour out my Spirit on all kinds of people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams,
and your young men will see visions.
Close your eyes for a moment and try to see yourself actively accomplishing your vision. Now think of the response of others as they watch you accomplishing the vision God has given you. What are they saying about you and your vision?
John 12: 20 There were some Greek people, too, who came to Jerusalem to worship at the Passover Feast. 21 They went to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said, “Sir, we would like to see Jesus.”
As we wrap up this series of gaining a 20/20 vision for our lives, I hope that it has allowed you to discover the way God has made you and created you to individually serve Him. As you join your gifts with others in your local church, I am confident that God will use you and others to accomplish this vision. Once it is completed, may you hear those words we all long to hear:
Matthew 25: 21 The master answered, ‘You did well. You are a good and loyal servant. Because you were loyal with small things, I will let you care for much greater things. Come and share my joy with me.’
Write. Pray. Live out your vision!
