These are the Teen Trails of Truth for Youth Illustrated Bible Studies in Cherbears Den Teen Caverns. These six lessons are appropriate for bringing in the New Year as they explain all that becomes new when we become children of God by accepting His Son, Jesus, as our Lord and Savior. They are also included as part of my Gospel for Teens and Preteens pages, presenting salvation by grace through Jesus Christ! The Curriculum page for this study is "What's New With Jesus?"

    "But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
    They will soar on wings like eagles:
    they will walk and not be faint."
Isaiah 40:31
New Vision - Flying With the Eagles

What is a vision? Webster's Dictionary says it is, "the power of seeing, or the ability to foresee something as through mental acuteness." Sounds great! Now lets take that a step further. What does spiritual mean? Webster's say it is, "of the spirit or soul." Do you have Spiritual Vision? Your spirit must be connected to God's Spirit in order for you to have Spiritual Vision. This only happens when you accept Christ as your Savior and Lord and He sends the Holy Spirit to live on the inside of you. The Holy Spirit helps you to understand God's Word and He alone can give you Spiritual Vision.

When God gives a vision, He allows us to see clearly with our hearts and minds. We begin to see things the way He sees them. Where we once saw lies, we now see truth. When the eagle is flying high, he can see very clearly with his eyes. God wants to give us eagles wings and eagles eyes in our hearts and minds, so we can vision His plans for our futures.

Gramma's Critters love to watch the eagles fly. They have climbed to the highest mountain in the forest to get a better view. They carefully followed the safest path to the top. The valley is more beautiful than they thought. The Critters are happy to see as the eagle sees. This is a great day!

If we want our hearts and minds to see what God wants us to see, we must stay close to Him. God wants us to see the way He sees, hear what He has to tell us, and love the way He loves. His Holy Spirit can teach us how by helping us to understand God's Word! Visions in our hearts and minds can then be visions from God.
