Kingdom Keys For Continuous Success: Helping You Reach Your Dreams
Greetings of Grace and Peace in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we gained access to the Presence of God the Father. It is by Him we have been called into a unique place in God’s redemptive agenda through the agency of the Spirit.
One of my primary calling is “To help men find God, follow Him and fulfill His plans and purposes for their lives.” I am called to educate, enlighten, equip and empower people to find, follow and fulfill their God given destiny. Nothing gives me more joy than to see people succeed in their God given assignments. There was a time we even gave Success messages to people for free.
It is for this reason that we are writing this letter to you today, to show you some fundamental principles in God’s Word that will facilitate the clarification, conceptualization and the pursuit of your most cherished aspirations and goals deposited in your heart by God. Let’s begin.
It is obvious from our everyday life that when a dream is born or captured in your heart, we become excited and exhilarated. We can’t wait to execute the project, pursue the dream or take on the challenge it brings but after a while, as time wears on we lose our fire, our desire, our passion or motivation for the dream or vision.
Today I want to show you how to build your dream from the scratch until it becomes the house you live in or the reality you enjoy. Selah. Having a dream or a vision is only the first step towards destiny fulfillment. There are many other factors that come into play as we pursue our purpose.
Having gotten a definite goal or vision from God. You need to put pen to paper, in other words, write it down. Be specific. Be definite about what you want to be, do or have. Clarity inspires. The clearer your goal, the greater your motivation. Habakkuk says, “Write the vision, make it plain upon tables that he may run that reads it.” See Habakkuk 2:2; Proverbs 29:18.
This step is very important because many people are not very clear or specific about what they want to do with their lives. This is because if you don’t decide what you want, you will have to settle for what you get. Precision gives focus. Focus guarantees intensity. Remember, the writing of the beloved Apostle James who said by the Holy Spirit, “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” See James 1:8.
Secondly, you have to develop a plan. A plan is a written description of your strategy or method for reaching your goal usually over a long period. You have to break down your long range goal or vision into small bits or pieces that are achievable in small steps. The journey of a thousand miles, they say, begins with a step.
A plan is a step by step strategy for achieving your goal or dream. It should consist of the following details:
What do you want to achieve?
Why do you want to achieve it? Your purpose or reason for your pursuit
How do you want to achieve it? Steps
Which do you need to achieve it? Capacity or competence?
Where do want to achieve it? Place, venue etc
When do you want to achieve it? Timing
With whom do want to achieve it? Partnerships, Employees etc
Whose counsel or input will you need? Mentorship, Counsellors
How much will it cost? Costing, Budget analysis etc
Get all your facts right. Be sincere with yourself. Think it through. Leave no stone unturned. Think on paper. Don’t be in a hurry to start. As Solomon wrote, “Carefully planning puts ahead in the long run.” See Proverbs 21:5 MSG. Plan thoroughly. Plan carefully. To fail to plan is to plan to fail. Think about it.
We will continue some other time. Until then, May God bless you and keep you. May God make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May God lift up His countenance upon and give you His peace: Peace in your heart, peace in your homes, peace on your jobs and peace with your enemies. Shalom
