A constant goal for each of us should be to deepen our personal relationship with the Heavenly Father. God desires a close and constant relationship with us. He wants to walk beside us all year long. That should be a goal every day of the year.
John 15:5 reminds us that only because of and in the midst of our relationship with God can we be successful. “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.”
John makes it pretty clear. If we want to be successful and accomplish our goals, we should rely on the Master Planner to guide us. Take time to ask God's guidance as you make a list of things you want to achieve.
Don't do this hurriedly but earnestly look for the things God wants you to do in all areas of your life:
Perhaps this is a new idea to you. Maybe you need to take a step back and establish a relationship with God. He is waiting for you. If you don't know Him, you need to put that first on your list - for this very moment.
