How is your Spiritual Vision?

Have you checked your vision lately?  Look at the image above….how would you describe your spiritual vision?  1 – as a closed end pvc pipe or 2 – as an open pvc pipe?  During the many trials and tribulations we all face in today’s society, in many cases we can describe our vision as being closed off and not able to see or anticipate the future.  We find ourselves worrying about problems or anxious trying to figure out a solution.  I’m writing to remind you that through Christ we are able to expect and anticipate great things in life when we keep our eyes on Him and allow Him to direct our paths.  Isaiah 43: 2 states:
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you."
The verse didn’t say that we will stop and let our circumstances overcome us (like a closed pvc pipe stops a flow), but we can clearly see that through Christ we can stand against any situation.  I encourage you to practice having an open vision by studying the Word, mediating, and praying so that you can grow, trust, and go through life with God!
