It is so important to clearly define the promises God has for you. I cannot express enough how essential it is to take an abstract idea, like the promised land, and convert it into a concrete, specific, and date-marked thing you want to achieve. However, when I talk to people about writing down goals or making goals for their life, most people don’t want to do it. You may feel annoyed and uncomfortable over the thought of writing down your goals. You’re probably saying to yourself, “That does not sound fun at all!”
On my 30th birthday, a group of us were celebrating. It was a tough time in my life. One friend asked me, “Bobby, what are your goals for the coming year?” Here’s the truth: I didn’t have any goals because I didn’t make any goals. Every single day I made a choice not to make a goal. I chose to let my life diminish in ways I didn’t want it to. And then I grabbed a powerful idea — what if I write down my five-year goals daily?
Friend, can I tell you about the best part of almost every day for me? When I wake up in the morning, I write down my long-term and short-term goals, open up my Bible and read it, pray for my friends and family, and drink God’s favorite beverage — coffee! You too will be amazed and blessed as you write your amazing goals on that piece of paper! You will be excited about what you are going to achieve.
