Focus: Do you know where you are going?
Without a focused view, we will not know if we have arrived at our correct destination. Advanced English Dictionary and Thesaurus give us several meanings and descriptions for-vision. Some of the ones listed are 1. Visionary (noun), 2. Vision defect (noun), 3. Binocular vision (noun), 4. Distance vision (noun), 5. Double vision (noun). 6. Eagle vision (noun).
Let’s take a look at each of these different descriptions of vision.
Visionary (noun). A person of unusually keen foresight; a person who is bold and highly speculative, or impractical ideas or schemes; dreamer.
Vision defect (noun). The eyes are complex organs, with many parts that must work together to have clear, effective vision.
Binocular vision (noun). Overcomes any annoyance due to the blind spots because they do not overlap in the visual field.
Distance vision (noun). The ability to see distance at 20 feet or more from the viewer.
Double-vision(noun). Visual impairment is seeing a single object as two objects “diplopia often disappears when one eye is covered.”

If you have corrected vision with glasses or contact lenses, have you ever wondered what it would be like to wake up one morning and NOT have to put your contact lenses in or wear your glasses? Trying to see those objects in front of you or read the morning news without having blurred vision? Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where our vision is blurred spiritually too. Do we have glasses or contact lenses that can help our viewpoint to become more evident?
I had experienced times when my vision was not so clear. Not so much as in a physical sense, but spiritually in faith. Was I seeking my idea or was I looking for the LORD’s vision for me? Often we can get our real vision mixed up with what the image is the LORD is giving to our lives. What do we do to get a clear vision? Do we need glasses to help bring in the image closer to view? Yes and sometimes we need bifocals or a magnifying glass.
The glasses I am speaking of is the Word of God in the Holy Bible. Many scriptures talks to us about the importance of clear vision. Just like the vision correction, we obtain with either glasses, contact lenses, or Lasik surgery; we also need our vision corrected, cleared, re-defined, or made concise through the reading of the Word of God in the Holy Bible.
