HAVE YOU PLANNED FOR 2017?

Welcome to purposeful living today.
As the 2016 comes to an end, never quit on your Dreams because  God has a plan for you (Jeremiah 29:11). God brought you to planet earth with a purpose in mind. Your present challenge have not changed God's purpose for you. Though it may tarry it will certainly come to pass.
Knowing that God has a purpose for your life, this will make you plan and set goals to fulfill your purpose.
To build a house without a plan is to be ready to make costly mistakes that results in waste of time and money. No wonder a wise man said to fail to plan is to plan to fail.
God has a purpose for you,  but you must walk with him to ensure its fulfillment by doing your own path by working out your plans according to His will .  To plan means to set for  action and know what to do at a specific time.  The Bible says there is time for everything (Eccl 3:1), time to work, invest,  play, pray,  fast,  study your Bible,  get entertained...
As 2016 is at the verge of becoming history, what are your plans for 2017, daily,  weekly and monthly. You can set goals but without your plans your goals can just be a wish and unfulfilled.
A driver cannot wake up and drives his car around the city without knowing where he is going, if he does that it will be prescribed that he needs to see a psychiatrist.
Step into 2016 prepared to rule, when preparation meets opportunity success is birthed. Your decision equals destiny not your condition says Tony Robbins.
Your success will never be accidental, it is as a result of choice and proper planning.
This why Jesus said in Luke 14:28-30
28. For which of you, wishing to build a farm building, does not first sit down and calculate the cost [to see] whether he has sufficient means to finish it?
29. Otherwise, when he has laid the foundation and is unable to complete [the building], all who see it will begin to mock and jeer at him.
30.Saying, This man began to build and was not able (worth enough) to finish.
So in other to have a fruitful 2017 we must beginning planning now.
Plan for your finances, academics,  career,  marriage,  relationship with God, friendship, business...
When you have planned, you then commit it to the hands of God (Proverb 16:3).
So what is your 2017 plan?
Don't just have it on your head, document it. This is what God told Habakkuk " 2. And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by.
3.For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day" (Habakkuk 2:2-3).

Quote for the day
Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry said that “ A goal without a plan is just a wish".

Keep living a purposeful life.
