God is a God of vision.
His plan is for each of us to live a life so big that only His glory can pull it off
This morning as I was watching Jesus Culture – The Center of Your Love (live) on YouTube God began to speak to me once again about His vision for my life. He has been giving me visions regarding my life’s purpose for 12 years and though I’ve taken little steps into that vision I’m still believing for the greater picture to become a reality.
So what’s the big hold up? Even though I don’t know everything behind God’s timing, I do know that I struggle to stay focused on the vision when I’m under major attack. There are two areas that the enemy uses to bring me down, one being the suffering that Jasmine has endured for years. The other area is equally as devastating and has been a thorn in my flesh for over 20 years. What’s amazing, though, is that God has stepped into that struggle and is performing miracle after miracle as He brings new life into what was once an impossible situation!
I share all of this to remind you that in the midst of whatever you are struggling with, God is reaching out to tell you He has a bigger plan, a vision of His glory that He wants revealed through your life. I want to encourage you to write out your vision (whether you know only a small part, or have seen the bigger picture) and keep it in front of you even as you are still believing for the miracles you need.
I know how hard it is to hold on to the hope of anything good when we are watching someone we love suffer. I want to pray one of my favorite scriptures over you this morning. May His Words bring you hope and joy.
I pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know him through your deepening intimacy with him. I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of his calling – that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that he finds in us, his holy ones!
