Most people have some life goals and dreams. The problem is, all too often these goals and dreams never become reality. They sit in some part of our heart and mind, hoping for fulfillment, but missing a very important ingredient—a plan—and the discipline to stick to a plan.
No goal will ever become reality without a plan, and the discipline to work the plan. No dream is ever realized with work.
Many people don’t understand the value of a plan. They don’t understand that God actually encourages and endorses personal plans. Take a look at these words found in Proverbs 16:3 (GNT) “Ask the Lord to bless your plans, and you will be successful in carrying them out.”
You can’t ask God to bless a plan without first having a plan! God wants to bless you life, but He blesses us by working with us. While we should never create plans without consulting God and submitting our lives to Him, as we submit our lives to Him, He expects us to then make plans to become the best we can be with the responsibilities He’s given us. We then add discipline to the plan, and prayer to the plan, trusting God with good results.
Do you have a good, godly life plan? Get one, work it, and pray for God’s blessing on it!
