Psalm 19:1

Luke 9:23

1 Timothy 6:11-12

It seems likely that God will check on at least three measurable priorities during our lifetime:

  • Our Schedule
  • Our Spending (Matthew 6:19-21)
  • Our Speech (Luke 6:45-46)

How do we attain our goals?

  • Step 1: Determine your present position (Genesis 24:1)
  • Step 2: Be specific about what you want (Genesis 24:3-4)
  • Step 3: Look for God's promise (Genesis 24:7)
  • Step 4: Ask God to help you (Genesis 24:12, Hebrews 4:16)
  • Step 5: Identify the barriers (Genesis 24:5)
  • Step 6: Create a step-by-step plan (Psalm 20:4, Genesis 24:42-44)
  • Step 7: Be patient and persistent (Habakkuk 2:3)
  • Step 8: Enlist a team for support (Ecclesiastes 4:12)
  • Step 9: You must pay the price (Genesis 24:53, Mark 8:36, Luke 9:23, Matthew 6:33)

Transforming Our Priorities and Setting Goals

Whether we think about it or not, we all live according to priorities. It’s those things that we place higher value on than other things. It is wise to examine where we are in our life. Where is our life headed? Are there any differences between God’s priorities and goals for our lives and the ones we set for ourselves? Please join us as we examine our goals in view of what God asks from us.
