The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. [NLT] Psalm 18:2
Ask the Lord to strengthen your faith and lean on Him for help as you navigate your way through your goals. Asking Him to be your rock means regardless of what happens; you know you can depend on HIM to help you in your time of need. Not only will He help you, He will shield you from the torrents of disappointments that may try to sabotage the success of your goals this year. Let Him help you, and you will find that there is indeed no god like Jehovah. Indeed there is no god like our Lord Jesus. Go to Him, and you will never be dismayed that you did. #Jehovah is a dependable God!
But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. [NLT] Exodus 14:13
Your goals are not beyond your reach! It’s quite possible the mode of reaching it maybe the problem. Have you ignored the work that needs to be done to get the end result? Misunderstood that there needs to be a process, a process that requires persistence in the face of stubborn, immovable obstacles? One of the many deal breakers that prevents us from reaching our goals, is misunderstanding of all the processes that is necessary in order to get there. We have seen the end results, but we forget that there will be challenges, insurmountable work/problems that we will need to crossover/overcome in order to get to our goals. Don’t try to give in, give up, quit, or leave at the first sign of problem, be resolute in your thinking, in your focus, and persist till the very end. Your dreams/desires are there for a purpose, have faith in Jehovah, and you will see that the insurmountable encounters that kept you awake at night, or that was trying to deny you of your end result are inconsequential before Jehovah. The Lord God HIMSELF is with you. He will guide you through it all. Only believe and put your faith to work. #Don’t misunderstand the process, master it and cross into your desired end result with the help of Jehovah!
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. [NLT] Galatians 6:9
Why was the noble dream conceived and for what purpose? What made you so passionate about it, and why has it always been at the forefront of your mind? Was it there to torment you, or to remind you of what you are capable of achieving? Much more than these, the #Lord created you for greatness, to impact your community, your surroundings, your family. Much more than these, He created you to reflect the nature of His Being. The God of heaven and earth is the CREATOR of the entire Universe, and by Him all things were made. Activate your creative nature on your surroundings. The plans, the purpose, the dreams, you have them for a reason. They were woven in the fibre of your being for a reason. Yes, there is much work to be done for the purpose to be realised, but remember, His strength that He has given to you has already activated all the fibres of your being to do what it only knows how to do, to make things happen! #This is not the time to give up on the dream! #Everyday spent working on it is a day closer to the realisation of it!
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. [NLT] Philippians 4:13
You have Jesus’ strength to do all the things you’ve set your mind to achieve this year. He has already given you the power, the leverage, the understanding and the wherewithal that you will ever need to attain success. You’ve done the planning, the preparation, have invited the Lord Jesus for His counsel, and the work has started in earnest. Don’t lose your patience, your heart, your sight of the goal or take the wrong action because of some of the challenges that may come your way. No one said it was going to be easy. But you have the assurance that it will all be worth it. # Who told you your strength has its limitations? #Why are you still listening to people who like reminding you that your plans are unrealistic since you don’t have the wherewithal to achieve them? Have you not the strength of the Omnipotence, a superior strength backing you as you make your way through this 2014? #Superior strength is what you have and will ever; don’t give up on the dreams!
