Planning Is Winning


Planning is winning. Between you and your vision is your plan. If you do not have ‘to dothe devil will give you enough to do.

When you want to start a business, the first thing you need to do is to have a business plan. A business plan is a document that tells you how the business is supposed to be carried out to succeed.

Most business owners who have their business plans before starting survived while those who had no plans are short-lived.

Understand this, the height of what you intend to build determines the depth of the foundation you are supposed to lay. That’s why every skyscraper that you see doesn’t have the same foundation as a bungalow. 7 foundations of a successful marriage.

“Moses listened to his father-in-law and did everything he said. He chose capable men from all Israel and made them leaders of the people, officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens. They served as judges for the people at all times. The difficult cases they brought to Moses, but the simple ones they decided on themselves. – Exodus.18:24-26

Understand this, there is an organizational structure that will help to secure your future. You don’t have to become big to have structure, it’s the structure that you develop from the inception that makes it becomes big. You don’t need to have an accountant to be accountable.

We serve a God of order. Before He created fish there was water. God specializes in strategic planning.

Planning averts the waste of time, energy, and resources. It protects vision and helps to fulfill a purpose.

If you don’t have plans for your life, someone else will plan for you. Anyone who has the plan is in control. You should chart your life plan and be in charge (dominion) of your destiny.

Planning Is faith. God has a plan for you but He doesn’t plan for you. The greatest display of faith is to document what you believe. Plans are documented faith. What is faith? Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb.11:1).

A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps (Proverbs.16:9, NKJV).


Recap

You need to have plans to be in charge of your life. In between, you and your vision are your plans. Every true vision will always put the visionary on the run (see Jeremiah 20:9). You can’t run a vision without a plan. Planning is a documented faith. It moves God into action. God has plans for you but God does not plan for you. Give God room to adjust your plan if necessary.

Violent Faith


From the days of the Patriarchy to the present, all those who have reigned in life have been men and women of violent faith. Faith that tears the roof off will always get God’s attention (See Luke.5:17-26).

Faith is not a gentle thing; rather, it’s a violent thing. To get God’s attention, some form of violence is required. In Luke.5, some men were bringing a paralytic man to Jesus, convinced that if they got him to Jesus, he would be healed. However, there was such a large crowd at the entrance that they were unable to enter where Jesus was. To get to Jesus, they ripped the roof off the building (Violence).

“And the kingdom of God has suffered violence from the days of John the Baptist until now, and the violent have taken it by force (paraphrased).” –Mathew. 11:12

You’re far too gentle for the victory you seek. Jesus is the lion of the tribe of Judah. You can’t claim to be a lion’s brother unless you actually are one. Consider a lion: he is always calm. A lion’s eyes are always red, indicating violence. There are no fearful lions, and even his posture frightens the devil. You can’t have a lion share unless you first have a lionheart.


You don’t deserve what you don’t desire.
Faith is not a passive state; it is an action – a doing or a moving force. It is acting in accordance with your beliefs. The woman with the blood issue did not pray, but instead reasoned within herself that “if she touches Jesus’ garment, she will be made whole.” Her blood was stanched as she moved to touch the garment right away. Faith is not a platitude; it is a labour of love. Without work, faith dies (James.2:20). Obedience comes from faith. In other words, unwavering adherence to scriptural instructions.

There are no professors at Pilot’s School, but there are instructors. People do not fly based on their knowledge, but rather on their ability to follow instructions. Connect to the frequency of scriptural instructions to get onboard for a flight. It’s impossible to be dedicated and not be decorated. Your level of obedience today determines your future. You’ll be counted among the world’s highfliers if you follow God’s commandments as a way of life.


The devil is not a gentleman; he will always oppose the manifestation of God’s promises in your life. As a result, God’s word will appear to be a forgery. What happens in life? We’re in a battle with the devil to reclaim our birthright. By being responsible, you can obtain your birthright from your parent (God). Life is a battleground. And the battle is primarily a mental one. The target of the attack is your mind. If you fail there, you will fail in reality. Your mind has the power to either make or break you (See, Ephesians 6:12; John 10:10).

Friend, embrace the truth and shake the dust off your feet. Follow, like, comment, and share. Blessings and love.
