“Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law”
Proverbs 29:18, ESV

The devotional tackles three key areas:

Establishing clear vision

Exercising correct vision
through life planning and setting SMART goals
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.
Matthew 11:28-30, MSG
A re you feeling like you’ve somehow lost sight of what this season of your life is really about? Has the rat race not provided the satisfaction you thought it would? Or do you maybe feel disappointed by how certain life situations turned out despite earnestly praying?
Whatever the reason, thanks for joining us on this journey to Restoring Vision.
In this FREE devotional, we will be turning to the Bible to better understand God’s vision for us all. There is no prophesying here, only Bible based teachings to keep you on track with God’s vision. By understanding God’s vision, you can then understand your God-given purpose and create a plan for life to make God’s vision a reality in your life.
The past year was eventful for us to say the least and as we step into this new year and decade, we find ourselves invited by God to do a vision checkup. Whether it’s because He knows there is something especially wrong that needs prompt attention or just to make sure nothing goes wrong until the next checkup, we’ve learned to trust His invitations to come to and get away with Him.
God loves us all so much, and He is eager to teach us His unforced rhythms of grace as the Message version so beautifully puts the verse above. As we embark it’s important for us to stress this isn’t a silver bullet – you get out of this what you put in. You don’t go to the gym and expect your personal trainer (PT) to do the reps for you to achieve your body goals. You are the one who will have to put in the work to restore your vision. See us as your Vision PTs providing you with a supportive vision training schedule to follow.
For this devotional our advice is: make a commitment to God and yourself that you will take and spend time with Him and restore your vision, that you won’t rush it this time, that you won’t put things off to a distant tomorrow. Why can’t tomorrow be today?
Questions to ask yourself
1. How much time and energy are you willing and able to give to this? Can you commit to it daily?
2. What are you hoping for your future?
3. What are you expecting from the 21 days we will be spending together?
A Prayer To get you started
Father, thank you that you are calling us to yourself. Your Word says your sheep know your voice and as your sheep we don’t want to miss the invitation you have extended to us at this time. Whatever it is that we faced in the past year/decade and whatever is to come for us in this new one, help us to be clear on the vision you have set before us, our vision of you and our vision of ourselves.
In Jesus’ Name, we pray.
