Catching Gods vision for your life
In the early morning when you awake from sleep, whatís the first thing on you mind? Have you planned your day the night before or is there a routine of a daily grind? Are you able to sit still in the presence of the Lord? Could it be your plates so full you have not time for that anymore? Have we become a society so focused on our Goal that we lose JOY in the Journey.? At the time of your death what would your tombstone say, how will you be remembered on that day? Will thousands show at your funeral or maybe just one or two?
I myself have had this dream several times in life. I am lying in a casket at the front of a church that could seat thousands. As the camera pulls back from me to take a view of the church it is empty. Revealing fears of a life that was meaningless and void of purpose. If life has no purpose and death is the end of it all then whatís a heaven for?
We have all heard the theory of puppets in a play or a pawn in Gods little chess game of life. However, knowing I have free will and I can make choices for myself destroys those myths. In the book of Genesis, it says we are created in Gods image and there is a command to be fruitful and multiply and we are given dominion over every living creature on the earth.
The First steps in our journey to catch Gods vision for our life is found in whoís we are. Not in who we are ÖÖÖ. not in what we do. Think about how you introduce yourself to people in life hello my name is Steve. Okay stop right there, this is where we tell people what we do for a living not who we are. To many times, we allow others in society to dictate how we feel about ourselves virtually by what we so call do for a living. Think about an inventor who creates a product. Dose he not have a useful purpose for this product? In Genesis Chapter One Let Us Make man God the Father is talking to Jesus the Son and to the Holy Spirit here about us. To find out the plan for man and more understanding of his purpose shouldnít we consult with the creator? So, we are created in His Image HHMMMM What Image do we have of God? To help us understand more we need to take a closer look at who God is and how he sees us
Adam and Eve saw God as the giver of life. Noah saw God as a saver of life when he commanded him to build the ark which protected his family when the floods came
Abraham saw God as the maker of covenant as the word of the Lord came to him in a vision as we study the life of Abraham we can see he truly took hold of Gods vision for his life
In Chapter 15 of Genesis After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision saying Fear Not Abram I am thy shield and thy exceeding great reward And Abram said Lord God what wilt thou Give me seeing I go childless and the steward of my house is the Eliezer of Damascus and Abram said behold to me thou hast given no seed and lo one born in my house is mine heir. And behold the word of the Lord came unto him saying this shalt not be thine heir but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. And He brought him forth abroad and said look now toward Heaven and tell the stars if thou be able to number them and he said unto him so shall thy seed be.
Abram believed and God made a covenant with Abraham. I will make my covenant between me and thee and will multiply thy seed exceedingly and Abram fell on his face and God talk with him. As for me behold my covenant is with thee and thou shalt be a father of many nations Neither shall thy name anymore be called Abram but thy Name Shall Be Abraham for a Father of many nations have I made thee.
In everyoneís life there comes a time when we ask ourselves the questions, who am I? Why am I here? Whatís my purpose? For those without a vision, no clear direction for destiny there is a loss of personal value resulting in a search for oneís true identity. True identity can only be found in the person of Jesus Christ. God gave our lives value at the cross when Jesus laid His life down for our sins. This ultimate sacrifice by Jesus redeemed mankind back to God through the redemptive plan. Our lives found purpose in having this relationship with God. As in any relationship when those involved reveal more of themselves to each other the bond that brought them together gets stronger. The more we know of God and how he sees us the clearer the vision is for our life. Most people donít believe God is a Good God even fewer can believe He loves them and though sad to say even less believe He wants to bless them. The Truth is God is a Good God He Loves us and wants to bless us! People just donít know who God is and how He truly sees them. If we the church could just take God at his word and just believe what He says we could be spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially free in the Body of Christ.
There is a great need to return to our first love. To walk with Him, to talk with Him and just to spend time in His presence. For God to reveal His Vision for our life we just need to take that walk in the garden. Remembering this is crucial daily. Below is a poem inspired me to write after my prayer time with Him.
"A Walk in the Garden"
On a warm Summers day with a cool breeze on my face
I went for a walk in the garden itís an ol so familiar place
Where I make time to be with Jesus
He's the closest friend I know
The Garden is where I open My heart and let my true feels show
As I walk along my focus becomes clear
Itís the voice of the Lord I desire to hear
Hands and voice lifted in praise
I continue to walk the path He has laid
Then I heard His footsteps so clear
The Sprit of the Lord was drawing near
As He whispered my name in a flood of emotion tears fell like rain
There in the midst of the Garden I fell on my face
His presence was so overwhelming in the Garden place
Now whether your walk is in a garden or on a sandy beach, take time to walk. Discover for yourself the Characteristics of God. The Lord GOD he is Abba Father/ Almighty God/ Author/ Creator/ Spirit/ Light /Love/ Refuge/Faithful/Teacher/Holy one/ Judge of all the earth/ Jehovah-the Eternal one / Jehovah-Jireh our provider/ Jehovah-Nissi Our banner of love. The Lord has many names that we need to become familiar with. He loves to hear us praying using His different names and when we use them in whatever circumstance in life we are going through at that time.
