Six Things In ‘06 That Will Keep You Fixed

Jeremiah 29:11

By Clarence E. Weaver, Sr

Introduction:

This is the beginning of a New Year, and many people around the world establish a New Year’s Resolution. Many promise to start a diet after eating so much during the holidays. They promise to start saving more money, stop smoking, drinking, are just some of the few things we say we will do.

However, after about the time winter is over that promise would not get fulfilled. Some have been discouraged because they have had the feeling that the resolution is a fruitless ritual with no evidence of tangible results. Many more just simple quit the promises that they made and avoided any opportunity to participate in it. Since I am speaking to Christians, I hope that we know the promise that God have kept for his people. We must remember that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We need to establish our plans to the Word of God. Your plans and visions will be fulfilled if we put our trust in God.

This has inspired me to write to you my brother and sisters to help us to avoid the world’s view on plans for our lives and learn the plans that God the Father of creation has for us. This will help us to avoid doubts, fears, frustration, and anxiety that we put on ourselves through during our life challenges for this year and beyond. I was inspired to write “Six Things In ‘06 That Will Keep You Fixed”:

I. Know The Plans That God Has For You

II. Write Down Your Plans And Visions

III. Transform The Way You Think and Become It

IV. Don’t Let Your Past Hinder You From Developing Your Plan

V. Your Plans Can Be Fulfilled With or Without All of The Resources.

VI. Show That You Are Committed.

I. Know The Plans That God Has For You

God believes that you can do the task as long as we trust Him, and let Him do the leading for your life. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and know of evil to give you an expected end”.

A. God knows the future and he will provide us with an agenda and will go with us as we fulfilled his mission for our lives. The number one problem why so many of our plans do not get satisfied is that we leave God out of our plan. We must ask him for the plan that he has for us, seek his guidance, and knock on the doors where he direct us. This does not mean that we will be spared from pain, suffering or hardship, but God will see you through a notable end.

B. We must put boundaries on your desires, and we should not go after everything that we see. We must look straight ahead. We must guard our hearts and make sure we concentrate on those desires that will keep us on the right path. Make sure that your affections push you in the right direction. (See Proverbs 4:23-27.)

C. You must let God direct your way by seeking his advice before you step out. Anytime that you step out on our own without any direction or any advice you will find yourself in the wrong place talking with the wrong source.

The steps of a good man are order by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand (Psalms 37:23-24).
