Setting Sail for a New Year
“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy
is he.” Proverbs 29:18
Helen Keller was born with sight, but became blind as a young child. Yet she had vision. A
reporter asked Miss Keller, “Is there anything worse than losing your sight?” “Yes,” she said, “It is
to have sight but no vision.” Do you have a vision for your life at the threshold of a new year? On
New Year’s Day, I review the goals for my life. These are spiritual, relational, intellectual,
physical, and financial goals. I pray over these and ask for God’s will to be done in each one. I
hold them in an open hand and ask that God would give me wisdom as to the direction He wants
for my life. I don’t want to be a man without vision. I don’t want you to be one, either.
Begin to think about some goals you would like for your life. Pray and seek the
Lord’s face as you ponder the future.
