At the start of 2020 there were many parallels being drawn to this year being one of 20/20 focus. Ideas were circulated about the need to remain focused and maintain a vision of what God will do in this year. That was before the global pandemic which has shut down the world, grounded flights, and created unstable economies.
Despite the challenges that this year has presented, there are also opportunities that have opened up as a result of it. Hear me out before you dismiss my suggestions as I say this with empathy. I know that there are people who have lost loved ones in this year and people who have lost jobs and businesses. While this is happening, there has been an influx of new business ventures created globally through the internet.
I believe that God is doing major things in this year and the body of Christ needs to pay careful attention so that we do not miss it. “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19)
None of what is happening in the world today takes God by surprise. So if he has allowed it, then we have to trust what he says in his word. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
