Vision! WORDS from our week of prayer: Urgency and intentionality. Revelation, conviction, real, relevant. Take risks Psalm 107: 1-9, 43
Vision! We act in the way we perceive the world to be, not in accordance with the truth!
Vision! How do we view life?
Vision! Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. (John 14:6) So take this seriously. The L ORD has chosen you to build a Temple as his sanctuary. Be strong, and do the work. (1 Chronicles 28:10) SPEAK - RISK TAKER - RE-CONNECT
Vision! SPEAK: I promise you what I promised Moses: ‘Wherever you set foot, you will be on land I have given you. (Joshua 1:3) Will we step into the land he has given us? ‘An opportunity has to be taken during the lifetime of the opportunity.’
Vision! RISK TAKERS: “Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities. (Isaiah 54:2-3) When I am with those who are weak, I share their weakness, for I want to bring the weak to Christ. Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some. I do everything to spread the Good News and share in its blessings. (1 Corinthians 9:22-23)
Vision! RE-CONNECT: It’s all about RELATIONSHIPS! So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. (Galatians 6:9) So lets SPEAK UP, BE RISK TAKERS and RE-CONNECT with others!
Vision! Give thanks to the L ORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Has the L ORD redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies. For he has gathered the exiles from many lands, from east and west, from north and south. Some wandered in the wilderness, lost and homeless. Hungry and thirsty, they nearly died. “L ORD, help!” they cried in their trouble, and he rescued them from their distress. He led them straight to safety, to a city where they could live. Let them praise the L ORD for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them. For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. Those who are wise will take all this to heart; they will see in our history the faithful love of the L ORD. (Psalm 107:1-9, 43)
