Welcome to 2020!
I asked my Pastor-Teacher Dad, as we sat across the room with our laptops writing, if he would be teaching a series on seeing 20/20 in 2020, as I assume most pastors will be latching on to the catch phrase. He laughed and said he'd just deleted it from his screen. But here I sit, still caught with the idea of seeing 20/20.
Seeing 20/20 is such a blessing. Even having corrected vision to 20/20 is a blessing! But what happens when we have the ability to see, but choose not to? What happens when we read in God's word that we are unconditionally loved, and still fill our mind with self hate? What of the promises given by God that we refuse to see because they didn't come wrapped as we expected? What do we do with verses like 2 Corinthians 3:5 that tells us we our adequacy is from God, and yet we live with the mindset that we will never be good enough?
My prayer for 2020 is that we will be in the Word enough, and believe the Word enough, that we will realize in Christ we are enough!
In 2020, may our vision be corrected to a perfect vision of what God intended for us, and our lives be fuller as we live in His amazing grace!
