I lift up my eyes to the hills... (Psalm 121:1, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
So many people today are stuck in a rut. Its not because they arent talented; its not because they dont have Gods favor, but its because their vision is limited. They cant see beyond their circumstances. They dont see themselves accomplishing their dreams, being promoted or living healthier. They just see more of the same because its what they are focused on. What you see is what youre going to move toward.
The truth is, we all have vision. Every one of us has a picture in our mind of our self, our family and our future. The question is: what does your picture look like? Do you see yourself rising higher, overcoming obstacles, living an abundant life? Do you dare to dream beyond your circumstances?
Today, why dont you change your focus? Lift your eyes beyond your circumstances. Get a higher dream, a greater vision for your life. See yourself the way God sees you and move forward in the abundant life He has prepared for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I choose to lift my eyes off my circumstances and look to You. Show me Your ways that I may walk with You on the path to victory all the days of my life in Jesus name. Amen.
