the vision

"If we lose, 'the heavenly vision' (Acts 26:19) God has given us, we alone are responsible-not God. We lose the vision because of our own lack of spiritual growth. If we do not apply our beliefs about God to the issues of everyday life, the vision God has given us will never be fulfilled. The only way to be obedient to 'the heavenly vision' is to give our upmost for His highest-our best for His glory. This can be accomplished only when we make a determination to continually remember God's vision. But the acid test is obedience to the vision in the details of our everyday life-sixty seconds out of every minute, and sixty minutes out of every hour, not just during times of personal prayer or public meetings. 'Though it tarries, wait for it....'(Hab. 2:3)"

Oswald is kicking my butt lately.
