Biblical Keys for Goal Setting
Faith – We serve a big God who can accomplish the impossible. There is nothing He can’t do. We can believe that He journeys with us and always has our best in mind. He is trustworthy and faithful.
Humility – We never want to be in a position of demanding that things work out or that all our goals are accomplished exactly as we say. The Lord’s will always trumps our own. We need to be sure our attitude is one of humility before our holy and mighty God.
Commitment – We need to commit ourselves to the tasks at hand.
Diligence – Goals often require hard work. We need to be diligent in our effort.
Perseverance – We will face set backs and disappointments, but need to persevere through rough times. Don’t give up!
Alignment with God’s Word and Will – As we mentioned above, are we within the parameters of God’s Word and His character?
Forethought & Planning – Have we done the appropriate homework before starting our task? Have we counted the cost?
Motivation – We need to ask the hard questions. What is our goal and why? Do we have selfish motives or are we operating with a healthy heart.
Start every day with a new hope, leave bad memories behind and have faith for a better tomorrow.
2 Peter 1:5
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge,
1 Corinthians 13:13
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 John 4:8
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
“Don’t wait around for someone else to tell your story. Do it yourself by whatever means necessary.” –Lena Dunham
If you stand for a reason, be prepared to stand like a tree. If you fall onto the ground, fall like a seed that grows back to fight again.
