Habakkuk 2:2 instructs us to write it down and make it plain. Several times people have heard me refer to the story of “Alice In Wonderland.” Alice is on her way and she runs into the Cheshire cat who asks Alice “where are you going?” Alice replies she does not know. And the line the cat gives in response to her has such wisdom in it; “then how will you know when you get there?”If we do not have written goals then how will we know when we get there? Write it down and make it plain.
Have a plan. We have all heard the saying have a plan and work the plan. If you do not have a goal you have not counted the cost is what my Pastor says, and he is so right! To do anything worth while in life it takes discipline and sacrifice; and we must count the cost before we go off just doing. Without a written down plan we are just aimlessly wondering about.
Once as I sat in a leadership meeting at my church, my pastor was talking about goals. Then I heard the Holy Spirit reminding me how God has goals too. He had a goal when He sent His son to this earth. The goal for Jesus was to die on the cross and be the sacrificial Lamb once and for all for us; His blood was to bring to God the final sacrifice.
The Proverbs 31 Woman had goals; which is how she got so much accomplished for her family. During the meeting the Holy Spirit kept giving me the word “plan” and here is the acronym he gave me for “plan.”
Laying Before Him
Asking His Will
Now write it down and go!
As you seek Him and His will for your next season – He will instruct you. Then write it down and make it plain!
