Greetings from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ;
This is the 11th day of the year 2020. This is a special year. It is the start of a new decade, and the numbers 2020 kind of just, well, jump out at you. When we think about 2020, the phrase 20/20 vision might come into mind. 20/20 vision means one has been rated with good vision in both eyes.
2 Corinthians 5:7 tells us that we should walk by faith, not by sight. How can we walk without looking where we’re going? Impossible right? This passage is telling us that we can’t pay too much attention to what we can see and ‘focus’ on the things we can’t see. A popular recording artist has a part in the song that I will always remember. She says; “You got to see it before you see it.” I can’t remember any other words to the song except that line. It resonates in my spirit.
God told Abraham (God changed his name from Abram to Abraham) to pack up and leave and go to a land that he will show him. He told him he would make him a great nation, and make his name great. He told Abram he would be a blessing and all the families of the earth would be blessed. (Genesis 12:1-3) Then we’re told in Romans 4:3; Galatians 3:6 and James 2:23 that Abraham (Abram) believed God and it was counted to him for righteousness.
One of the things to pay attention to is Abraham left what he knew and started a journey to what he didn’t know, just on a word and a promise from God. We can’t see what’s going to happen tomorrow. We don’t know what’s in store for us for the next 354 days in this year. But we can rest assured the Lord knows. If we trust in the Lord with all of our heart, and don’t lean onto our understanding and acknowledge him in everything we do, He will direct our path (Proverbs 3:5).
Having perfected vision doesn’t mean we hurl ourselves forward with our eyes shut. It means:
- We see things through the eyes of the Holy Spirit.
- We see ourselves as the Lord sees us. Are we lined up with His word?
- We see the events of this world without fear or worry.
- We can see ourselves, our families and community blessed, healed, delivered and free from sin.
Remember we can’t see the unseen things, but we know if we see it before we see it, we have 20/20 vision through Christ.
