A goal is an objective, a purpose. A goal is more than a dream; it’s a dream being acted upon. A goal is not hazy; it is clear. Nothing happens and no forward steps are taken until a goal is established. Without goals, we just wander through life.
It is very challenging and almost impossible to get somewhere in life without a map. Most people wouldn’t consider trying this, and yet we try to reach a dream without a map, plan, or written down goals.
God asks us to take the dream and “press on to make it my own.” When it is not our own, we have no reason to be passionate. I am not passionate about your dream. I can listen, be a part of your team, and enjoy the journey, but it will never be my dream.
God has a plan for me and for you with our dreams and our goals that is written in His book. He even has each of our names engraved on the palm of His hand: “See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; and your walls are ever before me.” (Isaiah 49:16)
When we put our trust in Him, we find that our energy increases. When we commit to a desired goal and resolve to work towards that goal, things that are supernatural begin to fall into place.
Use goals sheets to get specific about your life goals, your yearly goals, and your monthly goals. Join or create a goals group or a mastermind group. Write everything down on paper and put a date (deadline) on it. Read books on goals setting.
