See, Then Go Out After It

See, Then Go Out After It By Kirk Hunt

But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock,   I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it.”

1 Samuel 17:34–35 NKJV

As a shepherd, David saw and understood the situation.  An apex predator was preparing to eat one of the sheep from his flock.  David also saw with vision the dead lion, then went out after the lamb.

Sight is different than vision.  Sight sees the current facts and data.  As a rational person, you see the circumstances as they are. 

Vision is different than sight.  Vision sees a future set of facts and data.  As a rational person, you see the circumstances as they will be. 

I cannot tell you that your vision is without risk or effort.  In fact, I can guarantee you that your God-given vision will require, at a minimum, figurative blood, sweat and tears.  The Apostles and Prophets (almost all) lost their lives in fulfilling the vision they received from God.

You see a set of facts and data that do not exist yet.  God has sent you that vision in order to guide the work He wants you to accomplish.  The tasks you complete will change the situation and transform you.  See your assignment, then go out after it.

Think:       Go after the vision God gives you.

Pray:         “Lord, give me the strength to go after the vision You give me.”

Tell Your Story

“Tell Your Story” by Kirk Hunt


He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.

John 9:25 KJV


It should have been a celebration. There should have been rejoicing with happy tears and ecstatic shouting. Instead the sour faces of a grim inquisition pressed the man. A man guilty of receiving miraculous healing.


That morning he was a blind beggar, dependent on the few coins tossed his way in pity. That afternoon light and color flooded through the once dead orbs he called eyes. How they calmed him down, I’ll never know.


Still, he finally faced the elite leaders of the synagogue. He didn’t need his new, beautiful vision to see their cynical, ugly intentions. Fearlessly, he told his story, regardless of the consequences.


What great and miraculous thing has Jesus done in your life? Are you willing to tell your story? Regardless of their intentions, they need to hear the truth of His power in your life.


Whether you face a joyous celebration, or a somber tribunal, tell your story. Explain the change. No one can tell your story better than you can.


Think : I need to tell my story of Jesus’ power in my life.


Pray: “Lord, Help me to tell my story of You. No matter what the audience looks like.”
