TOPIC: Measuring Your Progress
Text: But you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit (Jude 1:20 AMP).
Progress means advancement; moving forward. Progress must be measurable, otherwise, itís not progress. You must have goals; if you donít have definite goals, you may not be able to really measure your progress. In making progress thereíre certain things you must consider. First, locate your present position in that area of your life in which you desire to make progress. Is it in your health, finances, job, business, or your family? Whatever it is, locate your present position. Secondly, envision what the next level will be for you.
Thirdly, determine what you must do to get to your next level. That means your input in terms of effort, time, and resources. Resources could refer to money, materials, information, etc. Fourthly and finally, take action; do what you need to do to get you the results you want. Otherwise, your visions, goals and aspirations will fail and come to nothing. Iím sure you already have clear-cut goals for the year; stay focused on your goals. Every now and then, pray in the Holy Ghost about your goals; this is so important, because itíll guarantee your progress in achieving them. Our opening verse says, ďBut you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit.Ē
This year, youíre going to make progress, and move forward in your life like never before, irrespective of whatís been happening with you or around you. Itís your time and season of advancement. And itís my prayer that the Spirit of Measuring Your Progress MONDAY 13 God will inspire and guide you to take the necessary actions thatíll cause you to have evident and unprecedented growth, increase, and prosperity in 2017, and beyond, in Jesusí Name.
CONFESSION: †My life is like a well-watered garden. Iím fruitful and productive; making progress in every area of my life. Iím complete in Christ, and every facet of my life is perfected for excellence. The Spirit guides and inspires me to take actions thatíll guarantee evident, and unstoppable progress, increase and blessings for me, in Jesusí Name. Amen.
