Goal Setting and Planning Devotional

Setting Goals According to God’s Will

As we set goals and make plans for our lives, it’s important to align them with God’s will. Proverbs 16:3 tells us to commit our plans to the Lord, and our plans will succeed. This means seeking God’s guidance and direction in our goal-setting process.

Having a Vision for the Future

Proverbs 29:18 reminds us that where there is no vision, the people perish. Setting goals allows us to have a vision for our future and helps us stay focused on what God has called us to do. When we have a clear vision, we can make intentional decisions that align with our God-given purpose.

Being Diligent and Persistent

Proverbs 21:5 tells us that the plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. Setting goals requires diligence and persistence. We must be willing to work hard and stay committed to our plans, trusting that God will guide us and give us the strength to persevere.
