I heard a comment in Church the other day about Vision.
Are you living in the Vision or are you living in the circumstance?
18 Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained, but happy is he who keeps the law. (NASB)
Hebrews 12:22 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (NASB).
As I was driving to work this morning my stomach was in knots. I had several issues that raised their ugly head Monday. One was very major and it had to do with concrete. Which affected the framing which affected the roof. As I drove I would pray and talk and worry about what I was going to face with my customer. I had myself so worked up I caused my own pain. There was judgment as well. I was deciding what the outcome was going to be and had made myself sick to the point I did not want to go to the job. I kept thinking about that quote. Am I living in the vision or am I living in the circumstance. The way I was feeling I was most definitely not in the vision. I was unrestrained. I was walking that line of ……… God this is your business and you got this …. But what if?????? Or what if they say this?????
Then I received the email from my concrete guy. Problem solved. Then I got the call from my framer, problem solved. As I got closer to the job (which is an hour away) I started to get peace. When I spoke with my customer they loved the garage door (that was another issue) the solution to the concrete was all good which made the framing all good.
So as I drove to the job this morning I went from living in the circumstance to living in the vision in a span of 1 hr.
So my question to you is this ….. Are you living in the vision of what Jesus did or are you living in the circumstance that you are in?
Freedom is not in the absence of something but in the presence of someone.
