Whose goals are we living—ours or God’s? Think about your goals. What are you spending your life’s resources trying to accomplish? Is it making a home, a career, finding a spouse, having children? What IS IT that consumes the majority of your time and money? When God’s will becomes our will, then we pursue PERFECT goals because God is perfect. When we follow our will, we pursue IMPERFECT goals. God fades into the background, and we choose to deprive ourselves of His perfect and everlasting goals. The Bible says: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jeremiah 29:11)  

God has an expected end for us—which include goals and dreams which last beyond our physical lifetime.

We choose our own goals only because we fail to comprehend God’s big picture. He has thoughts to give us peace, but we choose goals that stir our soul to war within itself. He wants only the best for us, and has planned each of our lives all the way through to an “expected end.” To know the way, we must know God who has been at both the beginning and the end. This is only accomplished through spending time with Him. When we know Him, we are wise enough to recognize the perfect goals He has for us, and we will laugh with relief when we don’t succumb to the foolishness of our own lesser goals. Choosing God’s goals instead of ours are like choosing gold instead of sandstone.
