What do you see?

Prov. 18:19 Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction. (NIV)

Someone once defined vision as the picture of your preferred future.  If you were to look to your life 1 year, 5 years even 10 years from now what would you see.  The question is, what do you want to see?

Solomon words in Prov. 18:19 are so true.  If you cannot see what God is going to do in the future (revelation) then you are doomed to do anything.  In other words, without God's wisdom to lead you, you are living aimlessly. 

This is true of individuals, marriages, families and churches.  All of us are one path.  You know how your life will turn out if you stay on it.  Hoping that it will be different is like walking into a McDonalds and ordering a Filet Mignon.  Hope all you want, it isn't going to happen.  

If you want your future to be different, then you have to do something different.  I know, profound wisdom, right?  But the facts are clear.  You have to change.  When you see God's preferred future for yourself, you've got to change.  

But what does change do for you?  It plows a path to God's goals for you and your future.  It isn't easy, and it doesn't make your comfortable.  It does bring you hope because God's vision for your life is way better than the one you have for yourself.

PRAY: Dear Jesus, I want to see what you see for my future.  Please show me.  AMEN

Tomorrow - Why are we afraid to change.
Wednesday - When life throws a curve into your vision.
