My vision is pretty bad. I wear contacts. I’ve had glasses or contacts for about 10 years now. My vision progressive got worse until I bit the bullet and went to the eye doctor. I can still remember when I put on that pair of new glasses. It was like a whole new world. I could actually see things that were blurry before.
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Proverbs 29:18
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
I wholeheartedly believe that each person and family should have a vision. This vision is not one that you just come up with out of thin air. It is one that is prayed, studied and sought after from God. I came across this devotion from Oswald Chambers the other day on vision and it really hit home.
It is easier to serve God without a vision, easier to work for God without a call, because then you are not bothered by what God requires; common sense is your guide, veneered over with Christian sentiment. You will be more prosperous and successful, more leisure-hearted, if you never realize the call of God. But if once you receive a commission from Jesus Christ, the memory of what God wants will always come like a goad; you will no longer be able to work for Him on the common-sense basis. ~ Oswald Chambers
It really speaks to floating through life with no real goal, no real vision. My prayer tonight is that God will continue to make my vision clear and the vision for my family. I also pray for the vision that God has placed in your life!
