2020 was a year to see, so we could have proper vision for 2021! We are beginning to see with more clarity.
I decree today that I can see clearly now: His reign has come.
Many of us have been blinded by perceptions. I would actually say that we have all been blinded by what I call paradigm paralysis. Paradigm paralysis is an inability to see beyond. We haven't been able to see beyond our conditions, circumstances or situations. Many of us haven't been able to see beyond current problems, past failures and our traumatic experiences.
Somebody say, "But God!"
God has been applying the anointing of grace; the very eye-salve of God has been applied to our eyes this past year to cause us to see beyond our temporal obstacles. This past year, He has made us see the good, the bad and the really ugly.
I know I have seen things in my life that needed change. Thank God for the mercies that we received in 2020 to clear our sight. The church of the Lord Jesus Christ has been repenting on mass, and scales have been coming off our eyes.
I've never seen the church repent like it has this past year. I've been on many prayer calls throughout 2020 where tens of thousands of people were crying, weeping and repenting. It was so freeing and so powerful.
Through solemn assemblies, God has been releasing a fresh anointing and has been removing scales from our eyes, so we can have true vision for this season of harvest we have stepped into.
We need to submit our perceptions to the Lord in 2021.
We must also refocus our sight on the things above and not on the things on the earth. Colossians 3:2 says we must set our mind on the things that are above, and we must fill our thoughts with heavenly realities.
The enemy has been pushing our buttons to catch our attention with anything like elections, viruses, economic downturns, shutdowns, quarantine and government overreaching. We cannot—we must not—focus on what the enemy is trying to illuminate to our eyes.
We must refocus with intentionality on the things of the Lord, like His promises and His prophecies for our lives.
So, allow the process of the Lord to take its full course. And allow your eyes to be healed and your focus recalibrated, and you will then have vision for these coming days!
Remember, your gaze will determine your days. Much love and abundant blessings and for a very happy New Year.
