How to Set a Faith Goal

 

“I know that I have not yet reached that goal, but there is one thing I always do. Forgetting the past and straining toward what is ahead, I keep trying to reach the goal and get the prize for which God called me through Christ to the life above.” (Philippians 3:13-14 NVC)

 

You exercise faith by setting goals. Goals are statements of faith by which you say, “I believe God wants me to accomplish something by a certain date.” If you don't have a date, it's not a goal, it's just a wish, a dream, a desire. Wishes are a dime a dozen. The only thing that will change your life is setting a goal. You have to wake up from the dream and go to work!

 

A “F.A.I.T.H.” goal has five characteristics:

 

Focused: that means it is specific. If you use the words “more" or “less," it's not a focused goal. “I want to be more like Jesus” or "I want to weigh less” are not goals because you can't measure them. A goal must be specific. For example, “I will have a quiet time for five minutes every day for the next month,” or "I will lose ten pounds in thirty days”— Those are F.A.I.T.H. goals. Attainable: It must be possible and practical. If you set an unrealistic goal, it's just going to discourage you. If you say, “I'm going to pray three hours a day,” you are setting yourself up for failure. Set a goal that stretches you without breaking you, and then trust God to help you stretch.

 

Individual: That means it's personal. You cannot set goals for other people, because you can't control them. You can only set goals for yourself.
Trackable: Trackable goals can be measured and verified. Your goal needs a deadline. Without a date it's not a goal.

 

Heartfelt: You'll never reach a passionless goal. If you don't have a deep desire to do it, don't set it.

Goals will give life to the dreams you’ve given up for dead. Take a look at the dreams you've given up on. Add a goal, and see what God can do.

Now talk to God

This is where you turn your thoughts into prayer. It could be a prayer of gratitude or praise. It could be a prayer of confession or a request for God’s help. It’s up to you. Take a minute to write a prayer of response to what God said to you. ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________
