Blessed Goals

Today are the rest of the notes from the Goal Setting video from last Wednesday. Please spend time contemplating and praying about these ideas from The Daniel Plan.
WHAT KIND OF GOAL DOES GOD BLESS? 

1.   Godly goals, the kind that God blesses, bring glory to God.
      “Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Cor. 10:31 (NIV)
      “We make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.” 2 Cor. 5:9 (NIV)

2.   Godly goals, the kind of goals God blesses are motivated by love.
      “Everything you do must be done with love.” 1 Cor. 16:14 (NLT)
      “Let love be your highest goal.” Cor. 14:1 (NLT)

3.   Godly goals fulfill one of God’s purposes for your life.
      “Do not use any part of yourselves to sin or to be used for wicked purposes. Instead, give yourselves to God… and surrender your whole being to him to be used for righteous purposes.” Rom. 6:13
      Paul: I run straight to the goal with purpose in every step.” Cor. 9:26 (NLT)

4.   Godly goals are set in faith.
      “Without faith it is impossible to please God...” Heb. 11:6 (NIV)

5.   They are achieved with God’s power.
      “We plan the way we want to live, but only God makes us able to live it.”Prov. 16:9 (MSG)
      “You will NOT succeed by your own strength or power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord.” Zech. 4:6 (NCV)
      “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths.” Prov. 3:5-6 (NLT) 

I hope you are encouraged to do something to make your life healthier and happier. God desires you to be your best, and will help you. I will restore your health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord. - Jeremiah 30:17
