God-goggles

God-goggles
‘Where there is no vision, the people perish…’ Proverbs 29:18 KJV

‘Two men looked through prison bars; one saw mud, the other stars.’ So which are you? A star-gazer or a mud-minder? Do you see life as a glass half empty or half full? Well, whatever you see, make sure you’ve got your God-goggles on. No, you won’t find them at Specsavers; God-goggles are given through prayer-life, reading the Word and being in partnership with God’s people. God-goggles give you a vision for your life, through them you begin to see things as God sees them. Moses had a pair when he ‘saw’ the Promised Land while trudging through the desert. The Israelites had ‘me-goggles’ on and so only saw a hot, deserted hell. Moses saw that every journey begins with a single step, and that every other step is a significant step to the Promised Land. The Israelites saw an impossible journey, a task too big for their tired and blistered feet. Moses and the Israelites were on the same journey; the difference was perspective; the difference was vision. One saw stars, the others mud.
What about you? Have you been given a promise by God but you can’t work out what to do with it? Does the task seem too big for you? What a great opportunity to put on your God-goggles. Take your eyes up from the floor and set them to the stars. Remember every journey begins with that first step.

I’ll never forget the day I stepped onto the airplane at the Atlanta airport. This wasn’t just any plane or a normal trip. I was going to Australia. I was terrified, I was excited, and I was questioning my decision all at the same time. I thought I had lost my mind. About a year…

Jots and Tittles: Messiah

It’d be easy to think, when you first read the Gospels and Epistles, that when God became a man about 2000 years ago and walked along the dusty roads of Israel, He was known by the first name ‘Jesus’ and the surname ‘Christ’. But that’s not the case. ‘Christ’ is a title meaning the anointed…

Focus on the Positives

Choosing to find positives in tough situations is a skill we’d all like to have—but sometimes there’s something even harder. Trusting God when life seems to be changing so fast we don’t even know if we want to keep up. Joel Vaughn, Christian pop-rock artist, took some time with the Vision180 team to reflect on…

Your Unpredictable Usefulness

In Australia, we’re used to Christmas done different. Snow covering the landscape? Try, sand at the beach! Crackling fire? Try, a backyard BBQ! Carols at the door? Try, at a huge outdoor music bowl.
