Set your goals looking unto God and not after your own self.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
- Daily trust God.
- Daily walk with God.
- Daily talk to God (pray).
- Daily speak God’s word.
- Daily use the gift’s God has given to you in the church, in ministry, in evangelism, in the community, in your family, and in your personal life.
For it is by The Grace of God we have received spiritual gifts. We are the workmanship of his new creation, but not only that we are called to be saints of God. The new man is a new creature and God is his Creator. It is a new birth, and we are born and begotten of his will in Christ Jesus, that is, on the account of what he has done and suffered, and by the influence and operation of his blessed Spirit unto good works. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works. This good works is by God’s divine grace and is in exclusion of works by human hands to earn good works. For we are the workmanship of God, yet God, in his new creation, has designed and prepared us for good works: Created unto good works, with a design that we should be fruitful in them. Wherever God by his grace implants good principles, they are intended to be for good works. Which God hath before ordained, (that means: what he has decreed and appointed). Or you could say: To which God hath before prepared us, that is, by blessing us with the knowledge of his “Will”, and with the assistance of his Holy Spirit and by Producing such a change in us. That we should walk in them, or glorify God by an exemplary conversation and by our perseverance in holiness.
Your Goal to Pursue is in God. Good works are molded into us by God to glorify him. Your goal is to be busy about Kingdom work in the universe of God our creator. He said if you take care of my work, I will take care of you.” But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you”. (Matthew 6:33). Your goal is to seek God and the preaching and the evangelism of the gospel of Jesus Christ. If we take care of the work of God, he will take care of our need, desires, and we can ask him for anything we need in life, if we stay in his will, praying, fasting, and studying the Holy Scriptures, our God is faithful to bless us and even give us all our desires, “for he is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us”.
Go after your goal trusting in God and he will bless you with what you need here on earth. “Thus saith the LORD, stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is a good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said we will not walk therein. (Jeremiah 6:16) Jewels of Nuggets “I will say to you, find your way, find your goals in God, and walk therein. “Well, this is just another Jewel of nuggets for the Soul”.
