God’s Purpose for Goal Setting

Setting and planning to achieve our goals is a practice that is rooted in biblical principles. Just as God has a purpose and plan for each of us, we can also set our own goals to align with His will for our lives.

Seeking God’s Guidance

When setting our goals, it’s important to seek God’s guidance and direction. Proverbs 16:3 reminds us to commit our plans to the Lord, and He will establish our steps. By seeking Him first, we can ensure that our goals are in line with His will and purpose for our lives.

Perseverance and Trust

As we work towards our goals, it’s crucial to remain steadfast in our faith and trust in God’s timing. Proverbs 3:5-6 encourages us to trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding. We can find strength and perseverance in knowing that God is with us every step of the way.
