2020 Vision

Cliché right?

I am sure that we will hear the term “2020 vision” quite a bit throughout this year.

Too be honest, I have already taught a Sunday School lesson on this subject and at our church’s watchnight service, we heard a message with the same title.

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

I honestly didn’t really know what 20/20 meant until I looked it up the other day. Here is a basic definition of the term 20/20: 20/20 vision is a term used to express normal visual acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet. … If you have 20/100 vision, it means that you must be as close as 20 feet to see what a person with normal vision can see at 100 feet.

To be honest, that definition of 20/20 vision has nothing to with my thought today, I just thought it was interesting since I never knew what it was.

I’ve heard this verse used many times when it comes to soul winning and reaching the lost. When you don’t have a vision to reach people for Christ, people will perish. It is a great application of the verse but I want to look at it in a different light.

We could say, “If I have no vision, I will perish.” Now we may not perish physically but we may perish in our life in the sense that we will never achieve or amount to anything.

I looked up the definition of vision:

– the act or power of seeing

– A thought, concept or object formed by the imagination

– The act or power of imagination

Bible def: from a sight (mentally) that (is) a (dream) (revelation) or oracle

Of course we know vision means to see, but it also means having a thought or concept. You can look at people that have succeeded and you can see that their vision, their thoughts and/or concepts became reality!

In 2020, we don’t have visions that the prophets had during Bible times. The reason is we have what God wants us to know in the Word of God, the King James Bible!

We can and should have goals for our lives!

We should have daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and life goals. There should be goals for all aspects and areas of life!

Without goals, without a vision, we have no direction, no destination and definitely no determination!

What is your vision for 2020?

Do you have one?

Do you have a direction you want to go?

Or are you just going to go through the year aimlessly and hope your better off at the end then you are now?

Set goals!

Be determined!

Don’t be afraid to fail!

Keep pressing on no matter how hard it gets!

Don’t perish in 2020 due to a lack of vision!

Join Me In Bible Reading This Year

It is the start of the New Year, 2019! I hope everyone had a wonderful time celebrating and bringing in the New Year with family and friends!

Since it is the start of a new year, many people will have goals and resolutions that they set. By the end of January, many people have already messed up their goals and resolutions.

I have set some personal goals for the year and probably the craziest one is no soda!! I love some Mountain Dew and it is going to be a long year! But I know that my wife will hold me to it!

That is the thing with goals, it is better to have someone that you are accountable to, to help you reach those goals and achieve those resolutions.

Of course one of my goals this year, like every year, is to read my Bible through at least once. I have decided to read it though chronologically this year, meaning in the order that everything happened. I am looking forward to the blessings that I will find in the bible through this endeavour.

To help me with this plan, I am using the Bible app, YouVersion. I highly recommended this app. I love the search, the easy highlight, easy copy and paste and easy note taking!

If you want to join with me this year reading through the Bible chronologically, I would love to have you. You can click here to join my on my adventure! Or if you just want to see the notes that I will post everyday from what I have read, you can click here!

Once again, click here to read your Bible through chronologically with me!
