Godly Goals Require Faith

Without faith it is impossible to please God …. Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)

"We must set goals that are bigger than ones we can reach on your own."

Godly goals are set through faith. The Bible says, “Without faith, it is impossible to please God.” In order to please God, we must set goals that require faith.

What does this mean? It means we must set goals that are bigger than ones we can reach on your own.

For instance, I want you to set a health goal for this year. As I’ve said, if you don't have a health goal, then your goal is to stay the same or get worse. To move forward – to get healthier -- you must set a health goal.

Let’s say you need to take off some weight. If you say, ‘My goal is to lose one pound’ – well … you know you can do better than that. Set a goal based on what God tells you to do and I have no doubt that will be a goal that will require you to remain dependent upon Jesus.

You haven't believed God until you've attempted to do something that can't be done unless his power is at work in your life.
