Just as soon as you determine in your heart to pursue a goal, a vision or a plan for your life, you will be challenged! The bigger the plan, the greater the resistance. You’re going to need faith to put up a good fight!
The Bible talks much about pursuing goals. In Philippians 3:14 we are exulted to “Press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Now you see why the enemy of our soul is out to thwart God’s plans for your life! He really does not want you to prosper! Neither does he want you to use your faith in expanding your gifts and talents!
So how do we arm ourselves for the battle ahead. And how do we keep motivated in ‘pressing towards the goal’ – the goal God has given us?
1. The first action point is to be found in the above quoted Scripture verse. Prior to ‘pressing toward the Goal’ we are advised to “let go of those things behind.” This will mean many things to many people, but it could include for example: Regrets, disappointments, previous missed opportunities, failures, broken relationships etc…
Also, forgive yourself for falling for Satan’s accusations and forgive others for their sins against you. And don’t forget: God has given you a vision to fulfill – it is yours and yours alone! Others may not understand nor agree with your vision. But God does, and that’s all you will need to fight for your faith.
2. The second step is to become accountable to a prayer-partner, a church Leader or a Coach/Mentor – someone of strong faith. Instead of the Enemy seeing just little old you fighting to establish your God-given Goal, he will see two or more standing in agreement. The Bible says “Two are better than one..” (Eccl. 4:9) And if you include Jesus, that’s three against one! And…“A threefold cord is not quickly broken” Eccl. 4:12
3. Write the Vision. There is something very powerful about writing your intentions. Somehow it set’s in concrete your plans – especially if you read and reread the vision. It will give you a battle plan to refer back to, a statement of faith, and a strong position you can throw at the Enemy!
Rehearsing you ‘Battle Plan’ will build faith and add weight to your determination. Go over it in your mind regularly.
4. Finally, get ready to celebrate your victory! Speak in terms of the battle is already won. In Christ Jesus the ‘enemy’ is defeated and God’s Kingdom is done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
