In 2016 be objective, throw away emotional reasoning no matter who is involved. Be wise. Don’t be where you are not supposed to be

Genesis 1:1-3
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

God had a plan for the world. Before you do anything, you must have a plan. It is you who determines what happens for you in 2016. Plan in Gods way. God did not create the whole world at once. He did it day by day. There are some things you are believing God for which you can only achieve per time. Life is in stages. There is time for everything.

Genesis 1:4-8
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.  And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

God first created an enabling environment, he was not in a hurry. If God had made Adam in d beginning, Adam would have drowned because there was no land. There are things you cannot rush to do.

Genesis 2:1-2
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

Settle down and finish your goal. God finished to the last detail. Before you relax, make sure you have finished the work.
Break down the vision and finish each stage.

Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

God made man last after all the earth was set in place. Dont rush to finish your goals before time. Take it step by step. Count the cost.

Genesis 2:5
And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

God did not send rain because he had not made man to cultivate the land.
Don’t be afraid to start small. God rewards humble beginnings. Start from somewhere. You cannot eat a whole elephant at once, you will choke; you eat it in small pieces.

Isaiah 29:15
Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord , and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

Don’t make any decisions without God. Don’t be coded, don’t shut God out of your life in 2016.

Read: Isaiah 30:1-5

Don’t work with world standard. Be sure to seek and follow Gods counsel first. Does your plan fit  Gods counsel? Does it remain relevant to your mission on earth? Does it give you peace? Does it fit into your future goals and vision?

God sees all. He sees all subtle plans or crafty plans. Don’t reject Gods plan, you might not like it but its best for you. Don’t refuse Gods plan and advise for your life.

Isaiah 30:18-19 (MSG)
But God ’s not finished. He’s waiting around to be gracious to you. He’s gathering strength to show mercy to you. God takes the time to do everything right—everything. Those who wait around for him are the lucky ones. Oh yes, people of Zion, citizens of Jerusalem, your time of tears is over. Cry for help and you’ll find it’s grace and more grace.

Follow your teacher, your mentor , your pastor they are Gods gift to you.

Isaiah 32:8 (MSG)
But those who are noble make noble plans, and stand for what is noble.

Stay focused on your target. Pursue each small segment of the goal.
Have a weekly goal.
Challenge yourself. Have plans in line with God

Proverbs 19:21 (MSG)
We humans keep brainstorming options and plans, but God ’s purpose prevails.

First decide to do Gods plan since it is His plan that prevails.
