“Is there anyone here who, planning to build a new house, doesn’t first sit down and figure the cost so you’ll know if you can complete it? If you only get the foundation laid and then run out of money, you’re going to look pretty foolish. Luke 14:28
In the above scripture, I believe Jesus was talking about the importance of preparation and proper planning.
And one of the keys to leading a successful life is preparation.
As I’ve always talked about setting realistic goals in life, and for the year 2019, this saying remains.
OK! I am not talking about the usual New Year resolutions oh, far from it! Because that would not take you through the year.
I’m sure for some of us, by March we would’ve forgotten about all the resolutions made. Lol!
So it’s about making conscious effort in planning by the help of the Holy Spirit (No! We can’t leave Him out in this journey if we must enjoy a smooth one) and preparing for what the year has in store.
I am certain the year is very robust but you and I have a part to play.
I encourage you to refuse to let the year just happen to you but rather, make conscious effort to make the year happen for you.
You will be in charge of the year if you follow every leading of the Lord.
Divine guidance is so key, you know!
So, I will advice you take some time out to personally ask the Lord, “what is in the year 2019 for me?” It’s never too late to ask the One who knows the end from the beginning ANY question and remember, everyone who asks receives (Matthew 7:8) so you can be sure of an answer.
Finally, let’s read what Psalm 32: 8 says: I hear the Lord saying, “I will stay close to you, instructing and guiding you along the pathway for your life. I will advice you along the way and lead you forth with my eyes as your guide. So don’t make it difficult; don’t be stubborn when I take you where you’ve not been before. Don’t make me tug you and pull you along. Just come with me!” (TPT)
Occchhhhh! Did you read that? May be you should one more time…
Done now? OK! Someone had better cooperate with the Lord right away! Lol!
As for the year 2019? It’s going to be a journey, you should get ready.
