So I’ve been talking about this move back to New York, and I knew that the house I used to live in was for sale. So I decided to do a search on Zillow and was shocked to find out it finally sold! I just assumed it would still be on the market. So that changes some of what I see. Of course everything I shared was what I was desiring by faith and really wasn’t in the realm of possibility in the natural. But that was no problem for me.
Just because I was seeing this in no way means it’s God’s will. In this case, it had a lot to do with desire and lack of vision. But there was something comforting about thinking I could go back. But honestly, if you think about it, is God really calling us to go back? I was looking at the house on googlemaps and it just looks like I would be going backwards, not going forward. I’m sure God has something better.
The problem is, I have lost my vision for the future. Some things that I have seen are no longer in the realm of possibility in my mind. So when we feel like we don’t have a vision, we create one, even if it’s not God.
Do I really want to go back? I felt like I did, but now a big part of what I saw for myself, appears to be gone. But anyway…let me stop rambling. I really need to get in the face of God and get a renewed vision for the future because now it seems I have none. Strange how a house being sold could change my direction. Well maybe.
King James Version (KJV)
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
New International Version (NIV)
18 Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;
but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.
