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.

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.
