I feel like a lot of things have been unclear in my life the past several years. I have always been a person with vision and I felt like I knew where my life was headed.
I wish I could say my path was completely clear, but it’s not. “Back in the day” I would plan my life out for days, weeks, months, years. I always knew what the next steps were going to be because I always had a goal to achieve.
Well life changed and when my husband started getting sick I kind of felt like things were never clear or even stable. I missed having life plotted out and what our next steps were.
I feel like God has had us on a detour for so long. Life did not turn out the way I had planned. Life can be a little messy and we may feel like we are always fighting a battle, and there will always be opposition going up against what we are working towards.
But often we are in a place where we truly do not know what we are working towards. I still feel that way, but I’ve also realized lately that with every step forward things become clearer.
With every move to let go of the lies, and every weight that holds me down, I feel I know more and I can SEE further. In 1 Thessalonians 5:21 it says we need to test everything but hold onto what is GOOD.
The confusion comes, and the vision is lost, when our life doesn’t reflect God’s promises, or when we aren’t walking in our identity in Christ.
Life is hard and it’s full of trials, but when we constantly fall victim to that, then the vision for our life is skewed because we are not focusing on the good. If God’s word is like a lamp to our feet, then I can only guess that the lies of the devil is like a blindfold on our eyes. When we have a blindfold on we can’t see the light, OR our feet!
If we are going to be able to SEE a vision for our future then we definitely need to focus on what is good. We need to identify our identity. Confidence in who we are in Christ is what’s going to help us SEE the next step.
The devil knows how to get us off track. If we are going to have a clear vision, with a clear path marked out for us, then we will need to be clear on the TRUTH! If we want to get our vision back then we need to stop believing the lies and take the blindfold off…
