Goals




Basically this hashtag, #Goals, is being used for everything under the sun they could possibly ever want.

Things like:
· setting deadlines
· specific details on how to reach the goal
· a way to measure the progress of our goals

Having these big vague goals won’t bring much success to our lives.

But today I’m also challenging myself with this question …
God, what are the goals you want me to set for my life?

There is a verse that reminds me how important it is to seek God first in everything, including goals:

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.”
– Matthew 6:33 (NIV)


So, how do we seek God’s goals for ourselves?

I think it can be summarized like this: seek, seek some more and never stop seeking.
Seek Him in worship.
Seek Him in prayer.
Seek Him through His written Word, the Bible.

I don’t know that we ever arrive at fully understanding the plans, dreams and goals God has for each of us. But as we stay in this posture of seeking, I think we’ll feel a little steadier in our steps.

The goals God has for us reach into eternity. They are the things that never return void in our lives.
— Who is someone you can see in your life who is good at setting and reaching goals?
— Read Matthew 19:26. What does this verse say when the goals in our lives look a little impossible?
— Take a few minutes and journal today. Ask God for the goals He has for you in this season of your life. Write them down, share them with a friend or share them with us on the God’s Girls Facebook Page.

No matter where you in your reading, read Chapter 15 this week. The author has a lot to say about "Life Goals."

Be blessed and be a blessing!
