DAY 5: The Power of a Vision
As you begin to process this idea of returning to God, you will draw near to God and experience His presence, seeing Jesus in a much clearer way. Many times as you draw near to God, He will give you a fresh vision of Jesus. You will discover dimensions of His character and His wisdom that you didn’t see before.
It’s easy to have an “upward” vision of who God is; on His throne, looking out over all creation, seeing you from a distance. But you must also get an “inward” vision. Once you combine your “upward” vision of God with your “inward” vision, you can get an “outward” vision for what God has placed you on earth to do, His plan for your life.
When you begin to get a true vision of who Jesus really is, then you can begin to see Him and walk in faith. The job of the enemy is to get your eyes off Jesus and onto the conditions around you, because as long as you are looking at Jesus, the enemy knows you can do the impossible.
Read all of Ephesians chapter 6. Highlight parts that are most meaningful for you.
How would you rate your spiritual life on a scale between 1 and 10, with 1 being completely nonexistent and 10 being as good as it can possibly be?
What would it take to move that score closer to a 10?
Jesus is with you. I think the enemy does all he can to rob you of your peace, which is why it is critical in this season of fasting to allow God to give you a new vision of who He is today.
FASTING TIP OF THE DAY
Carve out time in your day to get somewhere private and spend time with Jesus in prayer. Ask Him to give you a fresh vision of who He is.
