Embracing New Vision and Growth

As I write this from Japan, I am struck by the vastness of the world and God’s love for all people. The different languages on the intercom, the connecting flights to diverse cities, and the unique cultural experiences remind me of how seeing something new is essential for growth. This aligns with our mission at City Church in Bloomington, Indiana, where we believe that experiencing new things is vital for our spiritual and personal development.

The Importance of Seeing Something New

Experiencing new cultures, foods, and environments can expand our horizons and help us grow. It is healthy and beneficial to step out of our comfort zones and see the world from different perspectives. At City Church, we encourage this mindset as it allows us to develop as individuals and deepen our faith.

Spiritual Vision and Growth

God often speaks to us through visions, allowing us to see things spiritually before they manifest naturally. This is a key aspect of faith, as highlighted in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” God reveals His plans through the Holy Spirit, giving us hope and direction.

Faith in Action

When we face challenges, it can be easy to become disheartened. However, by relying on the Holy Spirit, we can gain new insights and see beyond our current struggles. This empowers us to believe in the impossible and strive for what God has planned for us. As Ephesians 3:20 states, God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, through His power working in us.

Practical Steps to See Something New

  1. Let the Bible Guide You: The Bible is filled with God’s promises and visions for our lives. By reading and meditating on scripture, we can gain a clear picture of God’s will. For example, Psalms 128 provides a vision for our families, while Psalms 23 offers comfort and guidance for our daily lives.
  2. Find Purpose Through Pain: Pain is a part of life, but God can heal and redeem our pain, giving it purpose. By allowing God to heal us and show us new perspectives, we can find hope and meaning in our struggles.
