Press on toward the goal to win the prize - Friday's Dose - 6th April 2018

The Apostle Paul said, "I press on toward the goal
to win the prize for which God has called me
heavenward in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 3:14.

Success has been well defined as "the ability to
embrace a worthwhile goal and then employ all of
your powers for the achievement of that goal."

Having a goal is the first step in the success of
anything. Without a specific goal it is all too
easy to go every-which-way with one's endeavors
and thereby dissipate one's energies. And, if
we're not careful, we can end up not accomplishing
anything worthwhile with our life. We become like
the proverbial marksman who shoots first and then
draws a bull's eye around where he hit in a vain
attempt to seek to convince himself and others what
a good marksman he is!

According to motivational speakers, only about
three percent of people have a major goal for their
life. This shouldn't be true of Christians because God has a major life goal for every one of us. That goal will put to good use our God-given talents in serving others because we serve God by serving people.

It helps to clearly define our major goal in life by
writing it out as often as possible. This helps to
instill it in our unconscious mind that, in turn, helps
us almost to go on automatic pilot so we, too, like Paul, will press toward our God-given life goal.

Prayer: "Our Heavenly Father, 
Help me to discover the God-given major goal for my life and give me the motivation, direction and help I need to fulfill it for your glory. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and May God Bless You!
