Can you see clearly?
A Kingdom Leader has a vision that is crisp and plain. It is not distorted by a personal ego or impure motives. It is not hazy from fatigue or over activity. The vision is clear because he has looked intently at Christ for the picture.
When was the last time you removed all the distractions in your daily life so you could focus on Jesus? Does your busy life even have room for the Lord and His truth? Are you walking with Jesus? Do you see him clearly?
The disciples followed Jesus for years and did not see Him clearly. They did not understand why the wind and the sea would obey Him. Who is this man? Jesus heals a blind man to a blur for the disciples.
Mark 8:24 (NIV)
24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”
The blind man looked intently at Jesus and his sight was restored. The teachable moment became a revelation for the disciples as Peter finally says, you are the Christ!
We pray that you follow Him today. But we also pray that you will look intently at Him. He has much to say.
