The following are the Christian steps you need to take if you want to set and achieve your goals in life.

Christian Goal Setting Steps

Pray Over The Goal

The first step of Christian goal setting is to pray over the goals.

Learn from David when he and his men returned to their homes in Ziklag and found their houses razed and their wives and children kidnapped for David inquired of the Lord saying, “Shall I pursue after this troop?” (1 Samuel 30:8)

David did not immediately set a goal of setting out to pursue the kidnappers. 

He first sought the Lord’s direction. God then encouraged him and told him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and recover everything.” (1 Samuel 30:8)  

As a result of acknowledging God before he set out on his goal, God directed David’s path and he and his men found an Egyptian who had been a servant of one of the kidnapping Amalekites. This man had been left to die by his master when he fell sick and he led David and his men to the hideout of the Amalekite attackers. David and his men were therefore able to find and fight the Amalekites and they recovered all their family members and all their property. (1 Samuel 30:11-19)

Therefore, Do not be wise in your own eyes. (Proverbs 3:7) Or, in other words do not consider yourself so wise that you do not need God’s guidance. 

Instead, In all your ways acknowledge God and He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:6)


Goal setting tips from the Bible

Write Down the Goal

Writing down your goals is a very important step if you want to achieve them because the Bible tells us, “Write down the vision and make it plain so that he may run who reads it.” (Habakkuk 2:2)

Therefore write down the goal you want to achieve so that you do not dither in indecision.

For optimum results, write down your goal in pictures after writing it down in words. To do this, create a vision board by cutting out magazine pictures that represent your goal and stick them to a board. Place this board where you will see it every day so that you can look at it and feel yourself achieving your goals.
For example, if you are setting a career goal, stick pictures of persons doing your dream job on a board and hang it where you will see it every day.
