Vision Collision

Jeff Jones

"'For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,' says the Lord, 'thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.'" Jeremiah 29:11, NKJV

Did you know that you're on God's mind today? Did you know that you're on His mind every day? The reason is simple. You're on His mind because He has a plan for your life.

This verse calls His "vision" for you His "thoughts." So, what kind of thoughts or visions does God have for us? According to this verse, they are thoughts of peace, and not of evil—a vision of a bright future, full of hope for every one of us. No one is exempt; God has a vision for every person who ever walked on the earth. But all too often we get in the way and come up with our own thoughts, our own visions, our own plans and we completely mess things up.

A "vision collision" is what happens when a person runs smack dab into the vision that God has for their lives. Unfortunately, many of us suffer from limited vision that's either defined by our circumstances, by our family and friends, or even by our past failures. But be encouraged today, because the Bible has tons of examples of what can happen when someone has a "vision collision."

David saw himself as the youngest member of his family, and least likely to succeed. His brothers saw him as a shepherd boy—but God saw him as the giant-killing king of Israel!

Gideon saw himself as a weakling and a coward—but God saw him as a mighty man of valor!

Moses saw himself as the stuttering caretaker of his father-in-law's sheep—but God saw him as an articulate deliverer of His people!

Peter saw himself as an emotionally unstable fisherman—but God saw him as rock, and a fisher of men!

Paul saw himself as the persecutor of the church—but God saw him as its protector!

The shepherds saw a baby in a manger—but God saw the Savior of the world!

So, what does God see when He thinks of you? He sees peace, not evil—and a future full of possibilities. So, isn't it time for you to replace the vision that you had for your life, and head out on the road of faith? Get serious and seek God with all your heart, and ask Him for your very own "vision collision."

Say It: "Father, I thank You for a vision collision in my life today. Thank You Father that You see me as capable. You see me as worthy. You see me in the light of who You've called me to be. I thank You God that today is the day my vision collision begins. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
