I love goal setting. A couple of times a year I sit down with my planner and a pencil, and I pray over what God would have me accomplish for the coming season. 

God is also a fan of goals.

Proverbs 21:5 says, “Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.” So while we are setting our personal goals, lets remember God has a few goals for us as well.

A few of God’s goals for us.

One day a lawyer asked Jesus a question to test him. He said, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”  And Jesus said to him,”You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.’ ”

Jesus also says “to let the peace of God rule in our hearts,” and “to let the word of Christ dwell in you richly,” and to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.” These are amazing goals straight from the word of God.

Goal setting challenge.

So get a piece of paper and a pencil, and pray over your goal setting session, asking God to lead you as you set some goals to become the best version of your self. While you are goal setting, don’t forget to set goals for your body, soul and your spirit. For more information on how to set goals see the podcast link below!

God bless!
