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).


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.

The Power Of Imagination

The outcome of your life is a direct product of the state of your mind. Most people are broke in life simply because they are broke in thought, until you change the way you think, you cannot change the way you live. It’s not what you have that makes you rich; it’s what you think. We will never rise above our present conditions if we are not thinking beyond them.

“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” – Proverbs.23:7.

Most people are victims of oppression more than anything else, their thinking has been affected due to long-term oppression, and so they have been used to servitude. The same thing happened to the Israelites who spent more than 400 years in Egypt, serving the Egyptians in agony and hardship. Unfortunately, they didn’t want to leave Egypt because they were used to slavery – sufferings were in their DNA which was why they blamed Moses for initiating the freedom.

May I tell you this, your present condition is not your portion – never mistake the former with the latter – your current situation is not your permanent address. You are on that job because God wants you to use their resources to develop your gifting (that your place of work is not your final bus stop).

The most difficult project to complete on earth is to change someone’s thoughts, it’s easier to complete a high-rising building than to complete the project of changing people’s mindsets but it’s not impossible to achieve because Jesus was able to change the minds of eleven disciples. If He could do it, that means we can. 

Your mind is the gateway to your life. God thinks and He thinks positively (Jeremiah.29:11). You are created in God’s image and as a god after the kinds of your Manufacturer (God), which means as long as you are not a bastard, you are not permitted to think negatively. God answers thoughts in as much as He answers prayers. The woman with the issue of blood did not pray, she thought within herself, took steps, and was healed (See, Mathew.9:20-22)

“I said, You are gods; indeed, all of you are children of the Most High” – (Psalm.82:6).

Superhuman projects like the Pharoah’s Light House, Hanging City of Babylon, and Pyramid of Egypt were accomplished by the power of imagination. If you can see it; you can have it. God told Abraham to look Northward, Southward, Eastward, Westward from where he was, all the land that he could see shall be given unto him and his seeds (See, Genesis.13:14-15). Wait a minute: A future you can’t picture don’t expect to feature. Sight is seeing the present condition. Vision is seeing beyond the present condition. Faith is vision and vision is faith. (See, Hebrews.11:1).

However, the Bible says that we should not walk by sight but by vision (See, 2. Cor.5:7). Because sight limit God to perform His will in our lives while vision hastens the hands of God to perform His will for our destiny (See, Jeremiah.1:11-12). If your dream doesn’t scare you or looks seemingly difficult for you to accomplish it’s not from God because a dream from God will always require God’s hands for performance. You are responsible for the finances of the dreams you determined; God is responsible for the provision of His dreams you discovered. If you can do what you do without God, check it, it’s not from God. God’s ways are always bigger than your ways (See, Isaiah.55:9).

Brethren, your mind can either make you or mar you. Enlarge your heart and think like your Father in heaven. Think of the impossible and the invincible. And commit God to perform it.
