WRITE THE VISION, MAKE IT PLAIN
Wow! Can you believe it. In just a few days we will be entering into a new decade. 2020!!! As we come to a close on 2019 and the decade, let's begin to take inventory of our year, the past 5 years and then the past 10 years. Did you accomplish all that you hoped for? Did you achieve everything that you set out to achieve; did you reach a new level in your purpose; did you solve that problem that you were created to solve; did you step into the fullness of who you are called to be in this season; did you take the time out to heal from that past situation that was designed to throw you completely off course; did you forgive yourself for past mistakes; have you forgiven those who you feel have wronged you; have you forgiven God; what about your parents, can you now see that they did the best they could, with the tools that they had? Take inventory. Is there any heart and mind work that you need to clean up before we step into a new decade, a new year, that is full of so much potential and endless possibilites.
Earlier this month, as I was looking back over the last couple of months of this year, I had an unction, an inner impression (the Holy Spirit) leading me and guiding me to take inventory of this past year. Were there some things that I could have done differently in some situations? Were there people that I needed to forgive? Were there opportunties that I missed out on because of my character? This required me to look at me. How uncomfortable right? Often times we want so badly to be able to point the finger at everyone else, while truly missing out on the character work and the inner work that takes place when we decide to look at who we have control over, OURSELVES. As uncomfortable as it may seem, when we decide to do our work, and look within, this opens a door for new levels of healing to take place and to become fully aware of what is truly in our hearts. So often we want new levels, new opportunities, new connections, new houses, new cars, new stuff (insert whatever your stuff is that you desire), not realizing that sometimes we are not really ready for the things we truly desire. There is so much revelation that can be exposed about you when you decide to look at you. You might think your heart is pure but when you step back and actually look within.....
This is by no means intended to bring forth condemnation or any type of hopelessness, as we all fall short, DAILY...this is however an opportunity to step back and look at self and reflect on this past year, and truly look at self and see our areas of weakness as opportunities to grow, develop and become. No one is perfect. We are all perfectly flawed human beings. However, in order to access the doors of greatness that we are called to, self work has to take place. There has to be a certain level of soul work in order to get to the next. Soul work that will promote growth and character and also soul work that leads to new levels of humility and pureness.
2020 is truly a prophetic year. Think about it. Vision equates to 20/20. When one is said to have perfect eye sight, "VISION," they are referenced to have 20/20 vision. 20/20 vision. What does that mean to you and most importantly, for you? Let's take a look, not from our normal, fleshy eyes, but let's take a different look...from our spiritual eyes. What do you see? Do you see yourself starting that non-profit organization? Do you see yourself writing that book? Do you see your intercessory prayers being answered and souls set free? Do you see yourself helping the poor and the helpless? Do you see peace in your family? Do you see peace and rest in your soul and in your mind? Do you see yourself going to counseling for anger management? Do you see your walls falling down so God can send people who will truly love you and not take advantatge of you? Do you see your kids thriving in school? Do you see health and wealth for all of your loved ones, family and friends? Do you see God sending a purpose partner that will accept you just as you are? Do you see that ministry being multiplied and touching and saving souls all over the nation? Do you see yourself as a new parent giving birth to a healthy baby? Do you see the chains being broken off of the oppressed? Do you see depression and mental illness lifted and binded from your family lineage? Do you see disease dismantled from your loved ones? Do you see the captives set free? Do you see the impossible becoming possible with God? WHAT DO YOU SEE? What are you believing God for in 2020? LOOK NOW!!! You do no have to wait until 2020 to see what God has in store for you. Ask Him NOW. Commune with The Father NOW and see what His plans are for YOU, your family, your kids, your church, your business, your friends, etc. He is waiting to hear from you. He wants to show you the endless possibilites and the endless opportunities that He has lined up for YOU. Will you seek Him or will you continue to look at the years to come, through your eyes? Your eyes that can so easily deceive you; your eyes that desire and go after what they want to see? Why not try it differently this decade? Why not WRITE THE VISION AND MAKE IT PLAIN.
You still have time. Look back to take inventory, but do not stay there. You look back to see the experiences and then pull from them, the lessons...then MOVE FORWARD. See what you need to work on, soul work is continuous work, but always keep moving forward. 2020 is going to bring with it so much opportunity but when the opportunity presents itself, if you are not ready, it will pass you by. CLEAN UP. Begin with your thoughts, filling your mind with the TRUTH, about YOU, your life, your identity, your why/purpose. Also check your heart. What are your motives looking like. Why do you want the things you desire. Who are you serving daily. Are your daily actions and deeds selfish and unsacrificial or giving and obedient to what God has asked of YOU? How much time are you spending with God? All relationships require QUALITY TIME. In order for there to be natural manifestations in your life, there is always first, spiritual breakthrough and manifestion, first. Increase your prayer life. Challenge yourself, spend more time with the Father, starting now, and watch how your life shifts.
You still have time. Do not allow what has happened to you these past few months, this past year, the past 5 years, the past decade, to throw you off course. YOU STILL HAVE TIME. But it starts with YOU making a choice and then a daily choice, to CHOOSE LIFE. The time is TODAY. Why delay when you can CHOOSE TODAY. Step over fear and anxiety and CHOOSE TODAY. Those buried dreams are being resurrected RIGHT NOW. That spirit of heaviness is being LIFTED RIGHT NOW. That fear and doubt is bound RIGHT NOW...all in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus.
So again I ask you... What is your vision for 2020? Can you see it clearly? Is it cloudy or clear? Do the work now, plant the seeds, and reap the harvest...it will be plentiful and full. I encourage you on this day, to take inventory of this past year (and decade) and seek the Lord for what He has in store for you, for 2020. He is waiting to hear from YOU and He wants to guide you and help you. Do not let the door of 2019 close, before you wrie the vison for 2020. I am rooting for you. There are great things in store for you and your family. Do the work, stay the course, and keep going. God sees you. God loves you, beloved.
Peace and Blessings to all,
