God has been doing something in my heart over the last 30 days. I am refocusing, I am making some decisions that need to be made. I have a renewed passion for my life, my ministry, my family and my church. I sense that God is up to something. I am ready to go to the next level. I have been thinking what it is going to take for me and for you to go to the next level.
I. Move Past Your Past
Whether it?s been good or bad, you have to move on. Paul says to let go of the things that are behind and look forward. Let go of the things that have held you back or have held you down.
II. Embrace the Future
Charles Kettering said, ?My interest in the future is because I am going to spend the rest of my life there.? God has an amazing future for you. ?The best is yet to come? is not just a cute little saying but a mandate. Get excited about your future?God is!
III. Be the Right Person Now
Make the decisions that you know you need to make. Zig Ziglar says, ?the best guarantee of a great tomorrow is a good today.? Pray, be in the word, be filled with God?s spirit and dress in the armor of God every day. Deliver what you promise.
IV. Develop the Skills You Need
What books do you need to be reading?
What people do you need to be spending time with?
What conferences or seminars should you be attending?
Be proactive. Take the initiative and start moving in the direction of your dream and goals.
V. Stay the Course
It will get tough. You will feel like quitting! Stay the course. Stay focused. Be committed. Persevere through the obstacles. You can do it. It will happen for you if you stay the course.
