Vision - What God Sees for Me (2 of 4)
Series: A Fresh New Vision
We began a new sermon series last week called “A Fresh New Vision” because I believe God wants us to begin to see things the way He sees them for our lives. One of the points of last week’s meeting was taken from Ephesians chapter 1 where Paul prays for the church that “the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling.” In other words, God wants to give us new eyes that are filled with the revelation of what God is speaking to us, what the direction that we are to be walking in is, and the glorious future that He has for our lives.

The future that God sees for you is the vision that God wants you to have for your future.
