Day 19 - God Helps You Reach Your Goals
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3
Ever set goals for your family? Perhaps you sat down as a family and decided on what you wanted to do or how you wanted to help each other grow. Setting goals together is a way of working as a team, as well as showing your love for each other.
As a member of God’s family God wants to do the same thing with you: sit down together and work through your goals. Because he loves you and wants the best for you, he wants to hear your plans, hopes and dreams.
Sometimes we make plans without consulting God because we simply want our own way. Some of these plans may succeed; others fail. God wants us to submit our plans to him for his approval before we act. In this way, we show our love for and submission to him.
God’s Promise to Me
- If you commit your plans to me, I will help you reach godly goals.
My Prayer to God
Heavenly Father, I’m glad you’re so interested in my life that I can come and talk to you whenever I want. Thank you for helping me set good goals.
