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) Seek God’s direction before you set out to set your goals because He can help you save time and money.
In addition, heed the Bible for it tells us that “If any person lacks wisdom, let them ask God who gives to all liberally and it shall be given to them.” (James 1:5) Therefore, ask for the wisdom to set and pursue the right goals in the sight of God.
But, there is a caveat to receiving this wisdom for the next verses say, “But let that person ask in faith, without wavering because the person who wavers is like a wave in the sea tossed by the wind. Let not that person think that they shall receive anything from the Lord because they are double minded and unstable in all their ways.” (James 1:6-8)
Therefore, as you ask for wisdom and help in setting your goals, you have to ask while believing that God can give you all the wisdom that you need.
