Open Your Eyes to God’s Vision - Rick Warren Daily Devotional (September-28-2022).  “Open my eyes, so that I may see the wonderful truths in your law." Psalm 119:18 (GNT)

The Bible is filled with countless examples of people getting God’s vision, including Isaiah, Jeremiah, Miriam, Esther, Daniel, Jonah, Ruth, Micah, and Mary. Seeing God’s vision for your life is a wonderful thing! God often uses a mental picture to clarify the next step he wants you to take. I don’t have to explain this to people who are visual thinkers. Maybe that’s you. When you read a story in the Bible, you can see it in 3D and vivid color. When you read a book, you can picture the story in your mind. But for the rest of us, it’s a little harder. I am not a visual thinker. I tend to think in words, not pictures. So how do you get God’s vision if you’re not a visual thinker?

First, ask God a specific question. In your quiet time, after you’ve read the Bible and prayed, just be quiet and wait before God. You could ask, “God, is there anything you want to say to me?” And then you wait. Then ask, “God, is there anything I need to know that I’m not thinking about?” And then you wait. James 1:5 says, “If any of you need wisdom, you should ask God, and it will be given to you. God is generous and won’t correct you for asking” (CEV). God wants you to ask him for advice, and he wants you to be specific. He’s waiting for you to ask! 

Second, read God’s Word to discover what God wants to say to you. Psalm 119:18 is a great verse to memorize: “Open my eyes, so that I may see the wonderful truths in your law” (GNT). It’s also a perfect verse to pray as you open God’s Word. Every answer to every problem you have is in that book. But you’ve got to read it, study it, memorize it, and meditate on it as you seek God’s vision—for your life or even just for today.
