Setting goals and how to achieve success.

Having a goal or vision is so easy. Implementing and actualizing it is the challenging part. My goal for today is to let you know the importance of having a vision and the secret to achieving success.

Setting goals

Setting goals and vision in this context is understanding Christ’s promises towards us, trusting God’s plans and putting in work.
We outline our goals to serve as a road guide while we wait on God’s approval and answer. Believing in God for the success of your goal is like professing faith; it moves God to action.

“Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.”

Proverbs 16:3

How to achieve success

Submitting to God and communicating your vision to Him is the only way to be successful. When you yield to God, trust Him, and obey Him. God brings your visions and goals to manifestation. Therefore, you need God to get a glorious end.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Jeremiah 29:11

Jesus is the master planner   

Most people rely on their power that is why they are not successful. When you get connected to God; God gives us the ideas, helps us work and give us victory. When you serve God and obey Him, He takes charge of ALL things including your visions and heart desires. Matthew 6:33 says that if we seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

What areas

You can set goals for all aspects of your lives; spiritual, physical, social, emotional, etc. A personal relationship with Christ is the key to partake in God’s promise. , Jesus is the key to being great, successful, productive and excellent. Our Job is to desire, obey and trust God. God brings our goal to life.

What lessons have you learned?

Heavenly Father, I confess and repent of known and unknown sins today (confess your sins). Jesus Christ, I surrender my life to you. Come into my life and be my Lord and personal savior. Thank you for your mercy. I ask that you teach me, guide my paths and preserve me for heaven at last. In Jesus name. Thank you, Jesus.
