Summary: ARE WE LISTENING TO ALL THE NEGATIVE GARBAGE AND LOSING SIGHT OF OUR GOAL? Will we focus on being a blindness candidate or will we enjoy today. You must never give up. Are we seeing a distorted vision? Get up, try again!

SEVEN WORDS

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

SEVEN WORDS HAVE BECOME MY DREAM! SEVEN WORDS ARE DAILY VISION TO FOCUS AND INVEST… 7 WORDS!

DO WE UNDERSTAND VISUAL FIELD…

Many know I have had detached retina’s and many eye surgeries. For years I have been haunted by two words on my folder at the eye doctor. I understand these two words: BLINDNESS CANIDATE. The enemy wakes me up reminding me two words. BLINDNESS CANIDATE. But I have learned 7 words. When my mind focuses on BLINDNESS CANDIDATE, I STAND ON SEVEN WORDS. For in 40 years of full time ministry. There are hours, maybe even weeks and months that depression tries to RULE MY SPIRIT. MY HEART HAS LEARNED I MUST LEAN ON 7 WORDS. I

I have been told better men than me have worked and failed. I knew that with no one telling me. I have no ECCLESIASTICAL SUCCESS SHEETS. My little grandsons have more trophies than I have. I seldom have doubted GOD, but if you listen to the facts I HAVE DOUBTED MYSELF ON A REGULAR BASIS. BUT I KNOW 7 WORDS….

My vision is DISTORTED in dark nights? Fog, fear, worry, negativism and listen to cruel words, at best I CAN NOT SEE THE ETERNAL. My flesh has learned my eye sight makes me a BLINDNESS CANDIDATE. I know this but I stand on 7 words. I UNDERTSAND I CAN’T SEE, I DON’T HAVE MY FATHER’S EYES. Turning the cheek, loving those that despitefully use me. How about walking the second mile when only the FIRST MILE IS MANDATORY? Lord teach me Mandatory --- there is more.

I Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

1 Corinthians 13:12 (MSG) We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! 13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

THAT I MAY KNOW HIM…

Deuteronomy 4:35 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.

Many years ago there was a writer named HOMER. Homer wrote this story CALLED THE ODYSSEY. There was this island where the SIRENS lived. As men sailed by the island the SIRENS would sing this most beautiful song. The men would crash their ships on the island and the SIRENS were eye candy and their song they sang BEWITCHED MEN to their death. Then the SIRENS KILLED ALL THE MEN.

ULYSSES knew the danger, as a good captain to had the ship’s crew plug their ears. This was not enough. He tied the men to the ship, still not enough. ULLYSSESS taught his men a song that was so powerful. As they sang the song they got louder and louder. THEIR OWN SONG DROWNED OUT THE VOICE OF THE SIRENS and they could not hear the song of the SIRENS. Ulysses taught the words of our song would always drown out the temptation.

SEVEN WORDS HAVE BECOME MY DREAM! SEVEN WORDS ARE DAILY VISION TO FOCUS AND INVEST… 7 WORDS!

Philippians 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

Philippians 3:10 (MSG) I gave up all that inferior stuff so I could know Christ personally, experience his resurrection power, be a partner in his suffering, and go all the way with him to death itself.

*HOW CAN WE CORRECT AND DISICIPLINE MY SELF? WHERE DOES JUDGMENT BEGIN… WHAT CAN 7 WORDS SPEAK?

* No matter how thin the pancake, there will always be two sides. I TRY TO HONESTLY EVALUTE MYSELF, MY WORDS, MY THINKING PATTERNS, MY ATTITIUDES, MY ACTIONS AND MY REACTION ON A REGULAR BASIS. I WANT TO MEASURE MY STRENGTHS AND MY WEAKNESSES… WE KNOW HOW STRONG SAMSON WAS… BUT HE COULD NOT VISUALIZE HIS WEAKNESSES.

* Am I growing? Am I improving? Am I getting better? OR AM I STAYING THE SAME? What am I doing that will help me BECOME A PERSON THAT GOD COUNTS FAITHFUL?

* There is a spirit of GRADUALNESS that would rub our belly and say sleep on! How did I get here? How long will I stay here?
