Vision

Colossians 3:3

3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Do you know that God has a life planned for you that only You and Him know about?  I can't speak for anyone else, but God has given me a clear vision for my life.  I'm not even talking about ministry.  I'm just talking about God's plan for my day to day life.  The life I'm living now contains some of that vision but I'm not totally living the vision yet.  I'm not totally living the vision yet. But I know I will because it has gone unchanged for the 6 years I've been married to my husband. Even though God uses people in my life to encourage me in the direction He wants me to go in certain areas,  but nobody has ever been able to touch on the vision that God has given about how my family's life on this earth is going to be lived out.  But it's so clear to me I can taste it, I can touch it. 

There are some things you may mention to other people about what God has shown you or put on your heart and it doesn't faze them at all.  When that happens don't be discouraged.  It might be something that God has established just between you and Him.  He might be saying to you that the reason why others can't receive the vision for your life is because:

 Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him. 


God sometimes establishes something just between you and Him and you have to discern that and respect that.  Don't try to get people to understand, don't try to get people to receive. 

For some reason I know what the life of my family is going to grow into and what it's going to look like.  It is amazing!  All I can say is thank you Jesus!  I use to think that what I was seeing was just my own thoughts running wild.  Or some image I had conjured up in my head.  But with every passing year, God shows me it's from Him.  I keep waiting for it to fade, I keep waiting for it to change or settle into something else.  But it just grows stronger and clearer.  It's good to have things that have only been established between you and God.  Because it's one of many factors that adds to the intimacy of your relationship with Our heavenly Father. 

Lord I come to you today knowing that eyes have not seen, nor ear heard what you have prepared for those who love you.  I pray that we, Your people turn to you today for the life.  For that life that is hidden in Christ.  I pray that we would allow you to pour that life into us day by day.  I pray that we would respect and discern the things that are just between You and us, and that we would be blessed by the intimacy it creates.  Thank you Lord!  We serve an intimate God, who shares secrets with us from His treasury!
