The reason why many fail in life, regardless of the opportunities and resources available to them is due to lack of wisdom. Wisdom demands that as you begin this new year, it is expected of you to sit down first and count the cost. Success is costly my dear. The price is enormous. The price for success are principles and discipline that must be adhered to if success in any area of life must be achieved.
The scripture text begins by admonishing us with clear and instructive sentence. " But don't begin until you count the cost". Don't start running this new year until you have sat down to count the cost. What will it cost you to achieve your new resolutions, the vision and those plans? What is the price it will cost to see those dreams come through this year?
1. The price of time management must be paid.
2. The price of total obedience to God must be paid.
3. The price of discipline and integrity must be paid. Etc.
Success this year will cost you a lot. In the pathway to success, you may loose some friends, loved ones. Because of your inability to get distracted. Success requires focus.
You cannot afford to be playing around and accomplish anything. You need to give your dreams your best shot and your all if your goals must be obtainable. Make up your mind and get ready for a total turn around as you take your need to God. Have a blessed week.
Hebrews 12:1-3 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangled, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
There are two factors that can easily hinder your goals in 2020:
1. Weight: e.g bitterness, unforgiveness, depression, discouragement, offences, etc.
2. Sin: e.g lies, immorality, deceits, etc
In order to achieve all your goals in this new year and not lose heart or become weary, depend solely on Christ alone.
Matthew 16:24-26 Then Jesus said to the disciples,"if any of you wants to be my follower, you must put aside your selfish ambition, shoulder your cross, and follow me.
If you try to keep your life for yourself, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for me, you will find true life. And how do you you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul in the process? Is anything worth more than your soul?
1. I receive grace and strength for the journey ahead in 2020 in Jesus name.
2. The Lord shall uphold me in His mighty hands and perfect all that concerns me this year in Jesus name.
