Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain. [NASB] Psalm 127:1

And finally my dearest friends, after we have put in so much skill and effort in drawing out the right plan for the year, sat down and evaluated the costings of the plan to make sure the unexpected unexpected is taken into consideration and amply prepared and ready to go, if we have not acknowledged the Lord #Jesus throughout the process, then we shouldn’t have any reason to expect our work to be blessed with His success. Without God’s involvement in it all, our carefully thought out and laid out plan may have all been in vain. Only He can crown it all with the right success. Therefore, regardless of what we want achieved this 2014, look to Jesus for help. And He will help you. Only He knows the right way we ought to go. If you’ve already made your plans without #God, don’t despair, ask for His help today, and He will. And if you’re still on the drawing board, go to Him for Inspiration and guidance, and He will do just that. He’s the one from whom all knowledge and blessings flow. Don’t leave anything to chance! Get the right direction from the start, that way you can be rest assured that success will be guaranteed. #And may your year be filled with all things wonderful. #Now go get your dreams! #You can achieve anything you set your mind to do, the constellation is only the beginning! 😀

Do your planning and prepare your fields before building your house. [NLT] Proverbs 24:27

An indecisive man is unstable in all his ways. [HCSB] James 1:8

…..

A good plan may not always come together as previously thought out, and it is true that many may end up unrealised, but the chances of the success of the plan is all in the preparation. Many successful men/women will tell you that they didn’t just wake up one day and went with the way the wind blew. They will tell you, they had their ideas penned and narrowed to a focus. They will tell you that it didn’t just end there, that having a focus was the beginning of the journey. They will tell you too that when they asked #God to be involved in their plans/preparation, the #journey no longer became a #burden. They will tell you also that even though they didn’t see results immediately, that though the journey came unstuck at times, the results they ended up with were worth the journey. So, if you’ve started your new year, still undecided, with no focus, plan/preparation and God in the mix, then don’t expect to get clear results. Or rather, when Gill, who has narrowed down her focus and worked towards making it a reality gets the results she’s after, there shouldn’t be any room for why me/pity party. #Challenge yourself to see your goals achieved this year! #How’s your 2014 Plans coming along? #Have you done your Accountability Check? #No time for indecisiveness.

Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him. Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness. [NIV] 1 Chronicles 16:29

……..

Still in the attitude of thanksgiving, Lord today I come before you with my offering of thanksgiving. Thank you Lord for all the great plans and breakthroughs You have in store for us this 2014. Thank you Lord for already making us overcomers over every challenge that may try to make us uncomfortable this year. Thank you Lord because everything that made a mockery of our success story in 2013 has been eliminated in Jesus name. Amen. And we will succeed in all of our endeavors. Thank you Lord for the gift of life and for our Saviour Jesus Christ.
