From the Pastor's Desk
As we move into a New Year, I really feel God speaking to me about 20/20 vision. It is normal to think about vision at New Year's. But it is especially so as we enter this year and this new decade.
20/20 does not suggest perfect vision, but it does suggest normal vision. In other words, it means I am seeing what I should be seeing. Did you ever feel the frustration that you were not seeing what you should be seeing?
20/20 vision carries the idea of the time to see some vision come to pass. Interestingly, 2 Chronicles 20:20 says, "Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper." We are responsible to say "Amen," or "Let it be so" to what God has spoken. When we declare His promises, God will establish us, meaning that He will confirm and back up His Word.
You may hear from our World Missions Team this year about having a vision for missions. You may hear about having a vision from other departments and for Parkway as a whole. And I pray that God burns it into your spirit for your own life. God brings to pass what we should be seeing at the right time, in the right way, and for His glory. Vision is a clear mental picture of what could be, fueled by the conviction that it should be. We pray that this year and this decade God gives 20/20 vision to us all.
