We are halfway through the year...ALREADY!!!
... and it's a great opportunity to see how I am progressing with the goals that I set at the beginning of the year!! I usually break my goal setting into 5 main areas: -
God created us with several parts. Like a pie with separate pieces, each part is critical to who we are; and all of these parts must be considered when we set goals for ourselves.
Many people wrongly think, "Goal setting is not 'spiritual' because it shows a lack of trust. It's not right to plan. Instead, people should wait for God to lead them.”
That may be so, God doesn't want us to forge ahead in pride without consulting Him for direction. But on the other hand He does not want us to sit around without acting, because He's given us gifts and talents and has also said that we are called to do good works (Ephesians. 2: 8-10, Romans 12:4-8, Matthew 25:14-30).
Forging ahead without seeking God or sitting back and doing nothing can stem from fear or a lack of faith. However, setting goals and consulting with Him shows that you trust Him and believe that He is able to lead you while you are moving forward.
So whether you set goals or not, I pray today that you submit all your plans to the Lord because God wants to see you do His will, He will teach you the way to go as you walk in faith (Psalm 32:8).
I pray this encourages you!
God Bless Your Day & Make A Difference!
