Godly Goal Setting Starts with a Promise

“The Lord, the God of heaven, brought me from the home of my father and the land of my relatives. And he promised me, ‘I will give this land to your descendants’” (Genesis 24:7a NCV).

The Bible has more than 7,000 promises from God to you — promises of success, confidence, health, prosperity, strength, wisdom, and more. Why does God make these promises?

Because he wants you to learn to trust him.

When you set a goal, don’t focus on the problems; focus on the promises. Find a promise in God’s Word that will take you to your goal.

This is what Abraham does when Eliezer, his servant, starts to worry about accomplishing the goal he is given. In today’s verse, Abraham tells Eliezer about the promise he received from God: “The Lord will send his angel before you to help you get a wife for my son there” (Genesis 24:7b NCV).

You don’t need an angel, because dozens of time in Scripture God has said, “I’ll be with you no matter where you go.” God is always with you, whether you feel it or not. You just need to plug into his power.

The size of your God determines the size of your goal. And, godly goal setting always starts with a promise of God. Don’t look at your limitations; look at the promises of God.
