Just as we previously discussed, starting fresh doesn’t mean that you have to rid yourself of everything. It doesn’t mean that every aspect of your life is unusable.
Sometimes refreshing starts with simply having a refreshed perspective on the world around you.
Maybe you just need a fresh vision!
A fresh vision can provide:
- Future Success
Too often we find ourselves stuck in a rut. We walk to one end searching for a way out only to find that we must turn around. We don’t have the vision of how we could climb out of this rut. We don’t have the vision needed to understand why we got stuck in the rut in the first place!
Without a change, we are bound to repeat the process.
It’s time to climb out of the rut that we’re in, and this starts with refreshing our vision and refocusing it on God.
A rut can be representative of a repetitive lifestyle that doesn’t offer us a challenge, so it doesn’t interest us anymore. We become complacent. Usually this is a sign that it’s time to grow and expand your vision. If you are in a rut, it may be a sign that you are ready for a bigger challenge! That challenge could come from expanding or deepening your vision.
Wipe off the windshield so that you can see where you were heading and why you were heading there.
As you go through the journey that you’re currently on, it’s important to clear your vision of distraction, obstacles, and objections. We must be strategic with what we’re placing in our hearts and in our minds.
And, once we’ve refreshed our minds and cleared our vision, then we will be better prepared for the rest of our journey.
And, finally, we can climb out of our rut.
I will take my stand at my watchpost and station myself on the tower, and look out to see what he will say to me, and what I will answer concerning my complaint. And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.Habakkuk 2:1-3
