Vision Purpose Deeper

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Proverbs 29:18

When people cannot see clearly, they begin to decay, die, and are eventually destroyed.

When people don't know the truth on things, they make detrimental decisions.

Spiritual warfare. The outcome of spiritual warfare is deterined by the choices we make.
Choose this day whom you will serve.
Choose life, that you you may live!
Father, if it be thy will, let this cup pass from me, nevertheless not my will but thine be done.

Christ new the will of The Most High, He knew the path to take, He denied His own desires and was able to evade the desire of the flesh.

Christ is our example. Christ is the truth we must live by. Christ was and is the ultiamte example for our lives.

In Him we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28

I want to share with you one of my poems.

Why He?
If heaven were not a promise to me
I would serve
If glory never to be
I'd bow
For in Him alone my heart rejoices
In Him alone brave and true
To Him alone my allegiance
Not in gold, silver, jewels, or promise
For my heart sores at His pleasure
he is the reason for my allegiance
Not security fair
Nor hands of plenty
But who He is is my reason
He is my reward.

What are the things in your lives that drive you?
What do you live for?
What is it that motivates you to get up in the morning?
Do you live for someone else?
Do you live for a desire? A dream?

Have you noticed that as you've looked back in the past, when you find out about holiday characters: Santa, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy... When you realized, something died. Something faded in you.

But when you find out the reality of God, and Christ, and the trueness of the Bible and the events that occurred, it drives you. It advances you forward. When you find out the truth, it sets you free. Purpose comes. Purpose...

Purpose is an object in view, an aim, an end, a plan, an intention.

I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. Jeremiah 29:11

Can you say today that if you never sensed the Lord's presence again, you would serve Him?
If you never got to attend a public church service again, you would endure?
What if those freedoms were robbed from us?

It could be better.. yeah?
But it sure could be worse.
I encourage everyone this week to count his or her blessings.
Write them down. Thank Him for what you have. Thank Him for what you've been given.

Father, we thank you for the abundance. We don't deserve it. Thank you for where you've brought us from. Thank you for what you've brought us through. Help us to have the peace and knowledge that you are in control of our lives and futures. Take us deeper. Draw us in. Teach us your ways. Forgive us where we fail you. In the name of the Lord Jesus we pray. Amen.
