Dale Byers, a frequent contributor to the Journal and these bi-weekly articles, is at it again. He lends stellar information to Monday’s program.
“Larry, I have tried that standing on the desk routine because I wanted to get on top of my work. I found standing on the desk also gives you a higher view of the ministry. Not only that but you can say you are coming up in the world. I really think you should try that next step of walking on water. I poured a glass of it on the floor and I could brag to my wife that I have actually walked on water. She was not impressed and told me to get my hands back in the dishwater and quit babbling. Enough said…. Never mind, just keep going for the Lord. He understands old worn out preachers. Always enjoy you.”
Now you have confirmation from a giant of the faith that taking a different look at things may work wonders.
A desk is higher than floor level, thus increasing vision power and an understanding of what you’re seeing from such a lofty peak.
Keep the old standby verses from scripture about vision or the lack thereof and make serious commitment to doing as James teaches in his epistle, to take a long lingering consideration of the mirror of life, the Bible. Most attempt to reach the heights of living with a mere glance. This gives insight to the many messed up aspects of modern life in our country.
Notice this verse, part 1:
“Where there is no vision, the people perish:” Proverbs 29:18.
The consensus among scholars is that nations, churches and individual’s live at the level or type of vision that is seen via the heart. A vision of a life that is beneficial to God and others, will result in that kind of life. A vision, world view, of chaotic upheaval results in a roller coaster like ride.
It would be profitable today for you to go ahead, stand on your desk and let God’s vision for your life run rampant through your mind and heart to dare great things in the name of Jesus Christ.
