“…And lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Amen.
– Matthew 20:28b
Before I begin to pour out Rick Warren’s thought on this topic, let me quickly say that the verse above did not say that “to the end of the lives of the disciple, (Jesus was talking to the disciples when He said this). It says to the end of the world, that means it covers even you and the generation after… And the power of death has been defeated so we have victory because of the hope set before us.
The Bible has over 7,000 promises from God to you – promises of success, confidence, health, prosperity, strength, wisdom and more. Why does God make these promises?
Because he wants you to learn to trust him.
When you set a goal, don’t focus on the problems, focus on the promises. Find a promise in God’s Word that will take you to your goal.
This is what Abraham does when Eliezer, his servant, starts to worry about accomplishing the goal he is given. In today’s verse, Abraham tells Eliezer about the promise he received from God: “He’ll [God] send an angel before you so that you can find a wife there for my son” (Genesis 24:7b NCV).
You don’t need an angel because dozens of time in Scripture God has said, “I’ll be with you no matter where you go.” God is always with you whether you feel it or not. You just need to plug into the power.
The size of your God determines the size of your goal. And godly goal-setting always starts with a promise of God. Don’t look at your limitations; look at the promises of God.
