What’s your vision for the rest of 2020?
Let’s be honest, 2020 has been disappointing to a lot of us so far. We’re only 8 months into this year, and we have experienced dramatic changes. Plans, & vacations have been canceled as well as schools being shut down. Overall, there has been a lot of unrest.
So, let’s backtrack to the beginning of the year when many of us were so expectant for what was to come.
Many of us went into this year with the idea of having the perfect 2020, writing down our visions, goals, and plans for the year. A lot of negativity has defined in 2020, but we can choose how we will respond to the rest of this year.
Will we walk in fear, or will we walk in faith? Will we speak negativity, or will we speak life? Will we choose dissatisfaction, or will we choose joy? Although we can’t control the future, we can control our thoughts, words, and responses.
What was the vision God gave you for 2020?
Now, take a look at your heart and ask yourself, have I given up on 2020?
The vision that you had when you started this year does it remain the same?
In this scripture, it says that God is still good, and there is still hope.
Proverbs 23:18, says, “Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.”
Romans 8:25, it says, “But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance, we wait eagerly for it.”
I challenge you to ask God for what your vision should be for the rest of 2020.
Let’s choose to speak life over our lives during this time, and to not lose hope in humanity and in our visions.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 says, “And the Lord answered me: ‘Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still, the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”
This is a reminder to keep chasing and going after the things of God, no matter what the circumstances might be. His plans and hopes will always be much greater. Keep in mind, to not give up when things get hard because having a vision is being able to see something that isn’t done yet. If you want something to come to past, you have to have vision and faith before it ever comes to reality.
Get ahold of your vision so that you can do it in Christ.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
You are loved.
God has a purpose and a plan for you.
