2020: Clearer Vision & Deeper Commitment
We, the members of True Covenant Church, have declared that 2020 is our year of Clearer Vision and Deeper Commitment. One definition of Vision is, a manifestation to the senses of something immaterial. In essence, to have vision, in this sense, is to have the ability to look beyond the apparent; or be able to glean hidden understanding. As strange as this may sound, I believe this is the exact ability the Bible is referencing in Psalm 119:18, where it says, “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold the wonderous things out of thy
law.” In 2020 we must have the ability to
understand the Will of God for our lives regardless of what we see before us. So, the revelation here is that Clearer Vision deals with a more precise understanding of God Will for us, both collectively and individually.
In addition to that God is also calling for Deeper Commitment from us. This is the result or the action that accompanies our understanding. We can’t just know God more intimately and not serve Him more intently. The psalmist goes on to say in v34, “Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.” We must make Him the priority and the motivation behind all we do this year. We will come to church not because it’s church time, but because of our understanding of God’s Will. We will witness not because we were told to, but because of our understanding of God’s Will. We will abstain from iniquity not because we are afraid of hell, but because of our understanding of God’s Will. Therefore, Clearer Vision and Deeper Commitment is really about a genuine relationship with God. That is our 2020 focus.
Also, in reference to the grapes, because of this rapid return; prosperity will saturate our lives this year. In other words, we expect to see the hastening favor of God everywhere we turn. Furthermore, we believe the results that should take years will be accomplished in months. The results that should take months will manifest in mere days. So, as the rest of the world retrogresses we, with God, press on to greater. The mouth of the Lord has spoken it!
