Godly Goals Require Faith

Description

To please God, you must set goals that require faith. What is He telling you to do that you think is too big for you?

“Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6a NIV).

Godly goals are set through faith. The Bible says, “Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6a NIV). In order to please God, you must set goals that require faith.

What does this mean? It means you must set goals that are bigger than ones you can reach on your own.

For instance, I want you to set a health goal for this year. As I’ve said, if you don’t have a health goal, then your goal is to stay the same or get worse. To move forward and get healthier, you must set a health goal.

Let’s say you need to take off some weight. If you say, “My goal is to lose one pound,” well, you know you can do better than that. Set a goal based on what God tells you to do, and I have no doubt that will be a goal that will require you to remain dependent on Jesus.

You haven’t believed God until you’ve attempted to do something that can’t be done without his power at work in your life.
