Organizing the Inside – Day 84 Agreeing with God-The Beginning of Success

In all labor there is profit, but idle chatter leads only to poverty. 
~ Proverbs 14:23

Working hard to meet your goals will bring about success.
In order to experience success you must be able to define it.  One person’s definition of success is different from another’s. Define what success looks like to you.  If a certain social status, a godly household or a warehouse to feed the homeless is your definition of success then make sure you can define what that looks like. The greatest success we could ever have is to agree with God’s plan for our lives and get busy doing it.

Consider making a vision board that will help you imagine living God’s plan for your life. The ability to form images in your mind is a gift from God and He’s given the gift of imagination to help fuel your faith.  A good vision board reminds you of what you’re working toward achieving in this life.

Purpose inspires productivity.
Many well-meaning Christians work hard every day without having clear goals or knowing their purpose. I’m speaking beyond just going to work to pay bills; that is not God’s purpose for your life. You may say that not everything has to be tied to a greater meaning. Let me remind you of the scripture found in the book of Romans: which teaches us that all things work together for the good of them that love the Lord and are the called according to His purpose. This tell me that we should each be focusing our hard work toward goals that will bring about change, first in you and then in the hearts and lives of others.

Planning makes no difference without execution.
 Making plans is only a small part of beginning to fulfill your purpose.  If you want to see your plans come to life then you must act upon those plans.  The most elaborate plans are left on shelves or stored in dust-covered shoe boxes which are filled with broken dreams and deferred hope.  Planning and execution is where you generally can separate those who talk about what they’re going to do and those who actually do what they do. God doesn’t want our lives to consist of a long list of unexecuted plans and excuses. Start today to plan your work and work your plan.  Organize your goals by making a list of things to execute over the next few weeks.  Start small and work your way up.  As you begin to act upon your plans your excitement will help refuel your resolve to get things done.

God never promised that this road would be easy.
He did promise that He would always be there to help us in our time of need.  He promised that the tools we needed to be successful would be provided.  There is much work to be done and all of creation is rooting for your success. Get organized, simplify your life and accelerate your success by saying yes to what God has already told you to do then go do it.
