It is the middle of the month and I am sure you have set your goals rolling already. If you have not, do not worry, there is still plenty of time to do that, but the best time to start is now.
Goal setting gives you a sense of purpose; it helps you channel all your energy towards achieving something that is of uttermost interest to you and is worthwhile. This is because every successful venture begins with a good and viable plan. Goal setting can be seen as a plan towards what you want to achieve. It is written:
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he (Proverbs 29:18).
Goal setting makes the difference between success and failure. However, to set great goals that are achievable, they must have the following characteristics:
You must seek God’s plan for you per time, to be able to set great goals. You cannot walk outside of God’s plan for you and expect to succeed at it. Remember that His plan only bring you good. Therefore, this year, you should begin by seeking His plan for your life.
However, you must understand that everything achievable in the Kingdom of God begins with new birth. This means that you must be born again to be able to receive help to set smart goals.
Being born again means confessing Jesus as Lord and Saviour of your life. So, if you have not done this before, or may have strayed from your decision to make Jesus the only Lord over your life, then you must say this prayer in faith:
Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary.
