Setting Goals and Taking Steps

Church Family,

Praying that God will give you the opportunity to share the gospel today. Wherever you are, at work, at home, or out having fun, may God place you in situations where you can be a minister to others.

Daniel chapter 1 has an embarrassment of wealth in it. I hate to pick 1 verse or topic, but here goes.

Daniel 1:8 But Daniel resolved that he would not defile himself with the king’s food, or with the wine that he drank. Therefore he asked the chief of the eunuchs to allow him not to defile himself.

How often do you make plans or set goals but never take any steps to meet the goals or accomplish the plans you made? As believers and as a church we can often speak of what we desire. We want God to be glorified, people to be saved, the church to grow, to get more involved, read/pray more often, etc. but how often do we actually take the steps necessary to do this?

For Daniel, he took God’s word, God’s promise, and his personal holiness serious. Therefore, he resolved/purposed in his heart/set a goal and then he took the steps necessary to accomplish it. It’s rare to meet a person/church that doesn’t say they are loving, want to grow, are more concerned with living for God’s glory, than their own, etc. but it’s even rarer to find a person/church that takes steps to ensure they really are those things.

I have so many goals, but only a few steps. Will you join me in seeking to not come up with just dreams, but actually come up with goals and the steps to meet them? Be a Daniel, take the steps of Faith. One foot at a time.
