What Do You See – Once More

Sabbatical Observations:
  • We get one shot at this life.
  • So many people don’t go to church on Sundays.
  • Pants are the worst.
  • The church never missed a beat.
  • We’ll see you in January!
  • “It came out of nowhere!”
  • Blindsided
  • Blind Sighted
  • Vision - A picture of God’s preferred future for our life

Proverbs 29:18 KJV // Where there is no vision, the people perish

  • Chazon

Proverbs 29:18 NIV // Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint

  • You were created for significance, not just survival

Proverbs 29:18 MSG // If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.

2 Kings 6:15-17 // When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. 16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

  • There is a PROCESS to our healing.

Mark 8:22-26 // 22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?” 24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.” 25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.  26 Jesus sent him home, saying, “Don’t even go into the village.”

  • God does miracles on HIS OWN TERMS, not OURS.
