Proverbs 29.18 “Where there is no vision the people perish. “Everyone needs a strategy. You may be 25 or 85 years in age. Who cares? Probably the only one who cares about your age is you. Your age either tells you that you are too young or too old. Remember, age is only a number. We have to put numbers aside and go with our hearts. If God is in it then don’t worry about the number.
What do you want to do? One of the ways to know the will of God is to determine what we believe we would enjoy doing. The will of God is what we would determine to do if we just had enough sense. We will never rise above what we do not want to do. If we want to do something our chances of success are greater.
What is stopping you? Consider your life and where you want to be and determine the blockades. Sometimes the greatest blockade is the decision to move forward. Until we make that decision we aren’t going anywhere. Once we know then we can assemble what is required to reach our destination.
Learn from the past and put it behind you. Past failures often eliminate us from life participation. We remember when we failed. A life that is fearful usually accomplishes far less than the life that has faith and confidence. Fear freezes us in our tracks.
Who are you today? Who you are and the direction you are going is far more important than where you have been. You can’t change the past but you can steer your life in a new direction.
Develop a life action plan. Why not plan a strategy for the next six months and even the next year? You and God can determine where you will be. Start today!
