Having “2020” Vision is key in this First Quarter of the Year! Our eyes should be set on Jesus and develop laser focus on what He is doing in our life and His plans for us! So, what does it mean to have our eyes on Him and how do we need to focus and make that a priority into this New Year of 2020? Keeping my eyes on Jesus means to look to Him in all I do and not cave to the demands of this world. The demands of this world urge me to do and be more instead of focusing on Jesus who says you are enough and rest in His love. This scripture in Zephaniah 3:17 sums it up best, “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save, He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” When you do things unto God it doesn’t become a chore but it is pure delight and He will delight in you and rejoice over you! He loves a heart after His. We are enough when we see things through God’s eyes and He is with us every step in the journey. Don’t look away but focus on God giving Him all your heart, mind and soul. Having “2020” vision for me this year is diving into His Word more and taking time to pray and spend time with God daily and allowing Him to be the priority. For me it means seeing Him in my daily life. Asking Him where and how He wants to use my time and talents. Being more purposeful is another way I have been working on to be more focused on God and not just saying “yes” to everything! I want to be in His will each day and take the time to listen and hear from Him. Letting the Holy Spirit guide you is key in this and not trying to force something in your ways but allowing God lead you in His direction. I wear this bracelet that a friend made me that says “Jesus is better” and this serves as my reminder of what I should be focused on. When our eyes are on Him, He shows us the way and guides our path. Proverbs 3:6, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight!” Not saying it is easy to follow God as we have to take up the cross daily and put our selfish desires aside. Looking up to heaven and focusing on things above gives us the “2020” vision. His way is perfect and He does direct our steps and makes them straight when we do that! Are you ready to have all your eyes set on Him for 2020 and give God our “2020” vision and let Him be our lenses? Let’s get started and see what opportunities God will open up for you and not be blinded by the world as His ways are much better! Remember “JESUS IS BETTER”!!!
