(Prov. 13:19) says “The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul; but it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil.”
King Solomon helps us to understand that there is something sweet about setting goals for ourselves and accomplishing those goals. For the desire (goal setting) accomplished is sweet to the soul. Thus, setting goals for our lives and actually accomplishing those goals has a way of building confidence in us. It has a way of causing us to see if we can complete this task, whatever that task may be, the next goal doesn’t seem unreachable.
However, the question is: Have you set goals for your own life? Or are you just living your life aimlessly with no plan as to where you want to be or what you want to be doing in the next five years. The truth is that we were all created by God for a specific purpose and those who won’t seek God for the plan and set goals for their own lives may never fully understand their purpose.
We know that our overall purpose is to serve God; however, you can serve God in a Church or in a mission field. The challenge today is to understand our purpose to the degree that the goals we set for our lives leads us into the purpose that God had for us when he created us. Because the desire accomplished is sweet to the soul, and a man that fails to plan is a man that plans to fail, don’t let that be us.
God Bless You
