Life With a Purpose

"Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go."1

Motivational speaker, Mark Victor Hansen, said, "Setting goals is one of the most important things you can do to guarantee your personal, professional and financial success. Goals are like a road map to your target destination. Each goal accomplished is another mile behind you on the way to where you want to be."

Years ago I heard another speaker say, "Success is the ability to embrace a worthwhile goal and employ all of your powers for the achievement of that goal."

A life without goals is like a ship without a rudder drifting where the winds and waves of chance direct. However, even more important than setting goals is to first discover one's God-given life purpose and then establish goals to fulfill that purpose.

This is exactly what Joshua did. And as long as he and the people of Israel lived by God's laws and followed God's plan, God assured them that they would have good success. God will do the same for you and me, too, as we live in harmony with his will and follow God's plan and purpose for our life.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please help me to discover and clearly define my God-given life purpose and then direct me in the setting of worthwhile and specific goals that, with your help and my commitment, will assure the fulfillment of my life purpose. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."

1. Joshua 1:7 (NIV).
