This statement deals with more than just “seeing” God. What exactly is involved? Consider a little background.
We must consider where we have been. Consider the past year. What mistakes were made? What successes were enjoyed? Was God part of the equation?
We must also consider where we are right now. Are we where we need to be at this time? Will this place provide a basis for where we need to go? Is God part of the equation?
Now we can formulate plans on where to go from here. Seeing God’s part in our past and present allows us to see His hand in our future.
If God is not part of the equation, we do not have a clear vision!
