1011th -- What We See


It is important that we have a vision of victory for our life. The path 
that our life will take has much to do with the vision that we have deep in
our hearts and the passion that we have to pursue it. Many times people 
give up on believing for greater things for their life because of the 
setbacks that have kept them where they are. They believe that because of
their pass failures, mistakes and shortfalls that they can never reach 
towards the heights of victory that they once thought was within their 
grasp. They give up on believing for greater things. They settle for 
where they are and they believe the lie that this is all that they are 
meant to be in life. What they must realize is that we all fall down and
we all fall short. There is no one person that is perfect, flawless and 
without blemish. We all fall flat on our face at one time or another, but
the important thing is getting back up and believing that a second chance
is available to us.

No matter what we have gone through and no matter what we have faced, as 
long as we hold on to the dreams that are in our hearts and be determined
to pursue them with all of our might, then we will see that greatness is 
still ahead of us. There is no has been when it comes to God. As long as
we keep Him at the center of our life, then a new beginning, a new chance
and a revived dream can begin to be fulfilled. Never think that you are 
beyond redemption or that you have reached your fullest potential. The 
Lord is never finished with us. A new thing is always dawning. We simply
must believe that we are meant for more. We have to forgive ourselves for
our past and see that a new beginning is available through God's 
forgiveness, His redemption and His ability to birth within us a renewed 
vision for our life.

Be encouraged to see that you have much to offer this world. Don't let 
yourself give up when things don't look their best, but be determined to 
weather the storm and come out of it better than you were before. The 
struggles of life serve many purposes. They strengthen our resolve, they
teach us patience, they equip us with wisdom and knowledge and they show 
us who we really are deep down. Use your past experiences to your 
benefit. Teach others what you have learned; do now with what you know 
what you couldn't do before. Pray and seek the Lord to show you what you
are to do in life if you aren't sure. The Lord is faithful to hear and 
answer our prayers when we seek Him. Never think that you are abandoned 
or forsaken. With God a new beginning is always possible. That is how 
great His love is for you.

I hope this message inspires and challenges your heart to see that you can
do great things in life no matter what you have gone through in times past.
Your story isn't finished as long as you have breath within your being.


A long time ago a baby was born to poor parents. His future looked bleak 
as he grew to see a life of dreariness and poverty before him. He joined 
the army as a common soldier and was wounded so severely that he never 
regained the use of his left arm.

He later failed to find decent employment and, on two occasions, was sent
to debtor's prison. He continued to have brushes with the law and 
struggled just to survive.

But, despite the severity of his life, he never let go of his dream...to 
write a book. He wrote that book and in it he told a beautiful story which
welled from his heart's deepest dreams and yearnings. It has moved 
generations of people the world over ever since. It is about a man who saw
the world differently than everyone else. Though created in suffering, the
book is an inspiring tale of irrepressible hope. This man's story has been
put to music and film, translated into numerous languages and remains a 
literary classic after some 400 years. The author was Miguel de Cervantes
Saavedra and the book is Don Quixote De La Mancha.

Perhaps Cervantes himself believed, as did his character, that the world 
“sees people as they are -- I see them as they can be!” For Cervantes may
never have accomplished such a magnificent work had he not seen some 
potential within himself that was hidden from the rest of the world. He 
knew, and has taught others ever since, that great truth: What we see will
come to be.

Some see situations as they are, others as they can be. Some see people as
they are, others as they can be. And some see themselves as they are, 
others as they can be. But when we look beyond the present reality, dismal
as it may seem, and set our sights upon the best that is within a 
situation or a human being, then, too, what we see will come to be. And 
we'll know the power of hope.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Psalm 91:9-11 “Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even 
the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither 
shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For He shall give His angels 
charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.”

Psalm 139:17-18 “How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how 
great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number
than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee.”

Deuteronomy 30:19-20 “I call heaven and earth to record this day against
you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: 
therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou
mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey His voice, and that
thou mayest cleave unto Him: for He is thy life, and the length of thy days...”

Psalm 28:6-8 “Blessed be the LORD, because He hath heard the voice of my
supplications. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in
Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my 
song will I praise Him. The LORD is their strength, and He is the saving
strength of His anointed.”

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto
thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall 
direct thy paths.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
