You are welcome to this impactful teaching. Last time, I gave you some steps to achieving your glorious goals, visions and dreams.
I also said that, everyone who is going somewhere in life, must set goals. Also, I said vision is the unfolding of God’s plan for your life, while dreams are projections into the future one is looking forward to.
In this segment, I shall discuss on, “Developing a plan for reaching your goals.”
God never does anything without first planning for it. Planning helps you to set everything in proper perspective and appropriate order. Planning enables you to do each thing at the right time. Like in the story of creation, God did everything sequentially (Genesis1:1-31). He brought light first, before any other thing in order to set the pace for all other things to be made. He brought all of man’s food before making the man; even the animals’ habitats were made even before they were made.
Without adequate planning, things cannot be done orderly, but haphazardly. It is recommended that your plans be documented also.
Water your goals with prayer
Goals are like plants. Without daily attention and constant care, they will shrivel up and die. What water is to plants is what prayer is to your goals (Luke 18:1). Without prayer, your goals may never see the light of the day, talk less of surviving.
Many things are calling for your attention. That does not make them legitimate. Youths and singles generally are known to be full of activities. When you are driving on the highway, you cannot afford to be looking everywhere; otherwise, you will find yourself in the bush. Can you imagine a star athlete in a 100 meter dash looking sideways as he is running? Such an athlete can never win.
When you are not focused, you are walking in darkness, and you just might stumble (Matthew 6:22). Remember Peter, who almost drowned in the sea because he allowed himself to be distracted by the waves. Distractions are usually noisy. The aim is to catch your attention thereby making you look at them. When you do so, it seems like you will drown under them. What distractions are you facing now? The good news is, you are overcoming them!
So much has been said, now the ball is firmly in your court. Stay focused and become a single with a difference.
Without Christ in you, you cannot achieve all these attributes. Are you ready to accept Jesus Christ in your life? If you are ready, please say this prayer of faith with me: “Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
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. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you in Jesus’ Name! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through email@example.com; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
