Set Your Goals With Faith

"When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish." Esther 4:16 (NIV)

"Knowing what God has called you to do and making the faith commitment to do it means setting goals."

The final thing you need to do to fulfill your destiny is make a faith commitment. It's not enough to just talk about your calling and set some goals. You need to decide to go for it, to say "I'm going to do this."

Esther knew going to the king was risky and it could lead to her death. She was afraid to go, but she knew it was the right thing to do. And she said, "If I perish, I perish." That's a faith commitment.

Until you know what you are willing to die for, you are not ready to live. You are just existing.

But when you understand your destiny and you know what God has called you to do, you're willing to go for it. You're willing to abandon everything.

Knowing what God has called you to do and making the faith commitment to do it means setting goals. The best way I can put it is this: You can only manage what you measure.

This is an important principle of life. If you don't have specific goals that can be measured, your goal will just be a pipe dream. You won't be any better, you won't be any different than you are today.

And above all else, make sure you set your goals with faith. Why? Because Jesus said, "According to your fail, will it be done to you" (Matthew 9:29 NIV).
