Walking with true sight

Have you ever known anybody that was blind? Sometimes they truly see better than those with sight. They learn to literally walk in faith. They learn to use the senses that many of us forget we have. It's just like our walk with the Lord.

Psalm 32:8
I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.

Helen Keller was once asked, "Is there anything worse than being blind?"

"Yes," she replied, "the most pathetic person in the whole world is someone who has sight but no vision."

Vision is possessing a sense of purpose in life. And mankind's purpose is found in the Scriptures.

God has a plan for each believer's life, and it is our responsibility to walk by faith, totally dependent upon Him to fulfill His purpose in and through us.

God has chosen you to fulfill His plan in your world. Have you caught that vision? Has your brother and sisters?

Americans live for the moment, not thinking about of the future. We want satisfaction now. We don't want to plant seeds that grow oak trees; we want to plant seeds today and harvest the trees tomorrow!

Many individuals, and most people, are not asking enough questions about life. Caught up in the rush of living, they seldom take time to step out of the mainstream long enough to take a look at where they are going. Seneca,the Roman philosopher, said, "You must know for which harbor you are headed if you are to catch the right wind to take you there."
