How’s Your Vision?

2019 has come and gone. 2020 is just beginning. The start of this New Year is a good time to have our vision checked to make sure we have 20/20 vision.

I’m speaking about our spiritual vision. Are we able to clearly see and react to the things that will come across our paths? In order to have 20/20 spiritual vision, we need to be able to see what God has to teach us in His Word.

We need to pray like the Psalmist, “Open my eyes that I may behold wonderful things from Thy Law” (119:18). We must look at God’s Word daily to help us see how God wants us to live our lives. If we do not look at our lives through the prism of God’s Word, we will not see clearly how to make wise choices.

But if we will keep our eyes on God’s Word, it will be “a lamp to our feet and a light to our path” (Ps. 119:105) to help us make wise choices. We will see temptations we need to avoid. We will see instructions that we need to follow. We will see promises from God that we can claim.

God’s Word will help us clearly see and react to everything that we will experience this year. And we can count on the Holy Spirit to “guide us into all the truth” as Jesus promised us (Jn. 16:13). Let’s be sure we begin 2020 with 20/20 vision.
