A few weeks ago, we were in Ballito on holiday and I accidentally left my glasses at home. I wear contact lenses but after the third day with no relief, my eyes were really sore. I fortunately got them couriered to me.
As I removed my lenses and put my glasses on, the Lord spoke to me about vision. I was once again struck by whatever lens I look through effects my vision.
I see through the worldview / culture I live in. I was at our HP Parktown Strategy session these last two days and, as Joey Bonifacio spoke about different cultures and structures, I started seeing things differently. As I started looking through a different lens, God was adjusting my vision both short distance and long distance. The ability for God to invade our lives and change us is so necessary for us to be and do what He has called us to but we will only change to the degree we see things differently. Walt Disney saw things that were not visible. Faith works from what is unseen to the seen. Hebrews 11:3 ‘What is seen was not made out of things which are visible’.
