RAISE YOUR EXPECTATIONS: GOD HAS BIG PLANS
 
Monday; January 23, 2017
 
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
 
Today’s challenge is to execute your vision plan. Once you have a documented plan, it is time to take action. Do not waste a lot of time telling everyone who will listen about it, but start executing your plan. What good is it to have a great written vision plan and never act upon it? When you take action, you unlock the secret to achieving your vision.
 
RAISE YOUR EXPECTATIONS: GOD HAS BIG PLANS. Zig Ziglar stated: What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” To become effective in your life’s journey you need to identify and develop clear and concise core values. Your core values are central to defining who you are, what you do and where you are going. Once defined, they should guide you in every aspect of your life. When you make a conscious decision to follow your core values, you will not let anyone or anything persuade you to live against them. It is these core values that determine what is important to you as an individual. RAISE YOUR EXPECTATIONS: GOD HAS BIG PLANS
 
But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. Psalm 33:11
 
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! Romans 11:33
 
Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. Psalm 145:3
 
For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods. Psalm 95:3
 
No one is like you, LORD; you are great, and your name is mighty in power. Jeremiah 10:6
 
RAISE YOUR EXPECTATIONS: GOD HAS BIG PLANS. In order to live the vision that God has designed for you effectively, you must develop a set of prioritized core values that guide your daily life. You may ask, “How do I determine my core values?” First, you need to define what core values are. Core values are deeply-held beliefs that define what is right and fundamentally important to each of us. They provide guidelines for your daily choices and actions.  Second, to determine your values, start with what God’s Word says we should value. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law” (Galatians 5: 22-23). Third,to determine your core values, you need to pay attention to your life’s experiences, prayer responses, family up-bringing and personal preferences. Once you establish your core values and  start living them watch your life begin to turn in a different direction. Do not get frustrated and quit if it seems difficult, but keep praying, believing and living through the process. RAISE YOUR EXPECTATIONS: GOD HAS BIG PLANS
 
Today I leave you with a quote by an Unknown Author - “Strive for integrity – that means knowing your values in life and behaving in a way that is consistent with these values.”
