NIGHTLY BIBLE DEVOTIONS - 05-20-2021
Is vision really just a goal and objectives used to complete the mission?
Psalm 37:1-8 (Emphasis on 4-5)
1 Do not fret because of those who are evil
or be envious of those who do wrong;
2 for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away.
3 Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.
7 Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret—it leads only to evil.
9 For those who are evil will be destroyed,
but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
Vision is not just about reaching a goal; it’s about fulfilling God’s desire for your church. Psalm 37:4-5 says, “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this.” As we do the work of ministry, we should continually ask God to align our desires with His. We delight in lining our wills up with God's will. Then we receive the desires of our hearts which is in accordance with his will.
