When Jesus was on this earth, He summed up His ministry with a single statement:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18–19) Jesus understood that God has a clear vision for each and every person—He wants you to be saved, healed, set free, discipled, equipped, empowered and serving.
We created this devotional to help you begin to understand how you can walk out each of those seven areas in your own life. The devotional is laid out in seven sections with five days apiece. Each section covers one of the seven areas: 1) Saved, 2) Healed, 3) Set Free, 4) Discipled, 5) Equipped, 6) Empowered, 7) Serving. For five days each week, you’ll be challenged to think and meditate on these subjects as they relate to your life.
2 Chronicles 16:9 tells us “The Lord searches all the earth for people who have given themselves completely to him. He wants to make them strong.” I am excited about all that God is going to accomplish in you and through you as you focus your heart completely on Him over the next seven weeks. I believe this devotional will be a springboard into a new season of your life filled with God’s blessings, provision and purpose.
Through 20/20, my hope is that you will discover and begin to fulfill the full scope of God’s vision for your life. I love you and pray that God will open your spiritual eyes so you can come to understand God’s vision for your life and start seeing 20/20!
