I’ve been thinking a lot about #vision lately. The beginning of a new year is an invitation to take a look around and wonder what is ahead. Vision Board parties, new resolutions, invitations to simplicity, wanderlust, and so much more compel us to ask the natural question: what lies ahead?
We kicked off a new worship series at Atlanta First UMC today in which we encountered the Lord saying that there is indeed vision for such a time as this. Don’t be distracted. As the prophets Joel and Habakkuk remind us, God’s vision is not dependent on our mood or even our capacity to bring it to fruition. Rather, God’s vision is only dependent on God’s willingness to reveal it to us. Sometimes vision may feel fleeting; yet, if we will just #WaitForIt, then we shall see the vision to which God is leading us.
Vision encounters us in such a powerful way that it is simply irresistible. What is God’s irresistible vision for you in this season? After all, it is time. God is pouring out God’s spirit on us. God is writing the vision and making it plain. This is the appointed time. Run and do not quit. It’s not yours to quit. It’s only yours to receive.
