And the LORD answered me:
“Write the vision;
make it plain on tablets,
so he may run who reads it.” Habakkuk 2:2
The month of December in Kids Life was filled with lots of fun engaging games that helped us focus on the birth of Jesus! There is one game I’d like to highlight. A few weeks ago the kids put a plate on their head and were asked to draw a scene given to them from the story of Christmas! They could not see what they were drawing. The game is called blind drawing! In this picture they are drawing the manger where baby Jesus was born. After their drawing was finished, they brought the paper plate down and they shared it with everyone around. Obviously, there were lots of giggles during this activity.
This activity raised a question for me. How many times in life have we blindly tried to draw the plan for our own life? Just like the picture of the manger that the kids drew, when we try and draw the picture we think our life should look like it usually doesn’t come close to resembling the picture God has planned for us. Don’t allow yourself to walk through this next year blind to God’s plan for you. Give God the pencil. His story is so much better than any picture you could draw for yourself. When it comes to his plan for our life, He has the 2020 vision. Why would we allow ourselves to plan something with less than perfect vision when we have access to the best? Jesus is the best. His plan for you is the best. Don’t expect anything less than the 2020 vision that He has for you. We don’t have to. His vision for your future is the 2020 perfect vision so begin this year to walk on it! When He begins to reveal His plan for your life, write it down. Write it down so you don’t forget what He has called you to. There will be so many situations and people who try and keep you from His 2020 vision. Don’t allow anything or anyone to blur the vision God has for you this next year. It’s time we get behind that 2020 vision!
