Today is a new day! The New Year brings us all a reminder that God has good plans for us! As we make an action plan to PRESS towards these dreams and goals, they WILL become reality.
"I PRESS toward the GOAL for the prize of the UPWARD CALL of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:14 The word "press" means to apply pressure or make movement towards connection. What you do each day is either connecting you with God's upward call for your life or moving you away from that call and plan for your life.
Philippians 3:15 goes on to state "Therefore, let us, as many as are MATURE, have this mind." So according to this, if we are a MATURING Christian, we will "have this mind." What mind? According to verse 14, "this mind" is being someone who presses (makes continual movement towards) GOALS that are set based upon the calling and plan of God for your life.
The call and plan of God for your life is found through praying for direction and revelation from God about it, then daily reading His word (the Bible) to get clarity in that call and plan.
"A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams become reality."
May 2016 be your best year yet! God loves and believes in you and so do we! Pastors S & A
