Setting Godly Goals

Back to Growth Plan List

Before you can accomplish anything meaningful in your life, you must first take into account where you are and then determine where you want to go.

This is the process for setting goals. But is it okay to set goals as Christians and make our own plans? Shouldn’t we live by faith and follow where God leads?

Yes, we need to live by faith, but God is a God of order. He doesn’t want us tossed to and fro in our endeavors; He wants us to get to where He is leading us. This requires setting goals -- but not just any kind of goals -- the kind that keep in mind what God wants for us.

To help you determine what this looks like, we've compiled some great content on setting goals, following your plans, and being open to where God is leading you in this 7-day Growth Plan.

Determine Your Direction

Goals help you determine a direction and destination, and then they help you do what's necessary to get there.

Think Big

Big goals can sometimes seem daunting, but don't worry—God will empower you to accomplish what He lays on your heart.
03 03

Save Room for God

Are you allowing God to show you the big things He wants to do in your life? This is a balance of living by faith while working on achieving your goals.
04 04

Your Guiding Goal

When you define your ultimate goal by prayerfully seeking God, it will influence the decisions you make, and it will empower the actions you take.
05 05

Put Off Procrastination

Don’t let procrastination derail you from achieving the goals God has set for you.
06 06

Small Steps

Big goals can sometimes feel overwhelming, so they often have to be broken down into small steps that you can take each day.
07 07

Don’t Give Up!

If you feel like you always start goals strong but don’t finish, then you’re not alone. But take heart! God will empower you.
