DADS…as I have shared the prior three weeks, there are Six gifts that God has laid on my heart to share with “us” over what is now the next three weeks. (Go back and read weeks 1-3 to catch up). Six gifts that God gives to us all freely to receive unconditionally daily.
In week 1 we talked about the gift of a “New Song” God gives us. Week 2 we shared God’s gift of a “New Self.” Last week we read about the “New Covenant.”
This week 4 we learn about this “New Vision” God gives us in Acts!
13 came to me, and standing by me said to me, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight.’ And at that very hour I received my sight and saw him. 14 And he said, ‘The God of our fathers appointed you to know his will, to see the Righteous One and to hear a voice from his mouth; 15 for you will be a witness for him to everyone of what you have seen and heard.
One of my all-time favorite Christian artists is Brandon Heath. Brandon wrote the song “Give Me Your Eyes”
Meditate on these first two stanzas:
Give me Your Eyes!
Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see,
Everything that I keep missing,
Give your love for humanity.
Give me your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten.
Give me Your eyes so I can see.
What is it that you need to see differently today?
Where do you need to use your New Vision?
DADs is it time…To see your wife in a new light? For you to see your own children within your walls in a different light? For you to see yourself in a new way? The way God sees you? The precious child of God that you are!
DADs a FOURTH gift God gives us Today and EVERY DAY is a “NEW VISION” God gives each of us His eyes…
Which set of lens do YOU choose to look through?
DADs...Today...You Have Been Remade!!
DADs…do not stand on the sidelines of life…get off the bench…“get in the game”…Today is game day…and so is every day…God gives you!
So…C’mon DADs…Suit Up!
