This day’s reading: Genesis 15:5, Proverbs 29:18, Jeremiah 29:11, Habakkuk 2:3
Thank You for giving me vision to see beyond my circumstances.
Having a vision is seeing things as they will be and not as they are currently. Do you have a vision for your life, family, career, ministry, or church? If you have a vision for something specific then you will begin to take the specific steps that will make that vision a reality in your life. If you have a vision for more, you will take steps to get more in your life. If you are focused on less and what you don’t have, your vision may be negative, keeping you from seeing what else God has for you. God’s vision for your life is so much bigger than what you can see. Abram in Genesis chapter 15, was a 75-year-old man trying to have children.
Naturally, Abram doubted that he would have any descendants. God’s answer to Abram was to look up and count the stars in the sky to see a glimpse of the vision that God had for the number of descendants Abram would have. God knew that Abram would need to focus on a vision of possibility for his situation to change. What is God telling you to “look up” and see today? Where do you need a clearer vision in your life? Ask God to show you His vision for your life.
Prayer - God, thank You for giving me “big vision” today to see beyond my current circumstances. Help me today to see things as You see them. Stir up within me “big vision” for every area of my life. Keep me from limiting You based on what I see. Give me vision beyond myself. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
