|Bread Of Life- Week 4|
**** Happy New Years ***
We started earlier this month with a topic called “God’s Eyes vs. Our eyes”. It mainly talks about the way we see things from our eyes and through the “Eye’s Of God”. Now that you see things differently through God’s Eye’s, God placed upon my heart to talk about something that is most important in our seeing, and that is having “Vision”.
Vision has been defined as “the ability to see”; that is true if we were referring to the duty of the eye. But have you ever thought about our mindset? Vision that is in our mind has been defined as “an image or a concept in the imagination”. I know that some are asking the question “What is the Difference?” Well let me tell you this. I once went to the eye doctor for an eye examination. The doctor put this solution in my eye that caused my pupils to dilate. This meant my eyes were open, and I could see things far off, but when it came to things that were close to my eyes, I could not see. In other words “My focus was off!” Now get this; I tried to drive in that condition! (Don’t tell anybody).
But I have come to let you know that if we “look unto Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Heb 12:2, We can maintain our FOCUS. For “he will keep us in perfect peace whose mind is stayed upon thee” Is 26:3. We must know that our vision comes from one source (Ps.1-6). His name is Jesus; we must know that as long as our trust and mind is in the Lord, then our focus will be unmovable.
And because your vision is now stable, you can see things farther than others. It is simply called “Far-sight”which means we can see down the road. This is the ability to anticipate possible future events and developments. And because of the word of God, and you being focused on your vision, you now can expect God to perform his word in your life. If He says “You Can!” than “You Can!”, If He says “You Shall Have!” than “You Shall Have!”, If He says “It Must Be!” than “It Must Be!” (SHOUT AMEN SOMEBODY!!!).
And this is the reason that the person that is under the influence of things can’t see straight. It is not that he can’t see, but that which is influencing him has caused his vision not to be focused. And you just can’t say that it is drugs or alcohol only that will cause you to have double vision, for some are under the influence of SIN, some are under the influence of Low-self esteem, some are under the influence of anger, and some are under the influence of Laziness.
What ever it may be; “Don’t Let The devil Get You off FOCUS” Tell the devil to loose you in the Name Of Jesus.
