“Strategy…an approximate course of action that you frequently revisit and redefine, according to shifting market conditions.” _Jack Welch, Winning, p.166
“Figuring it out” is not the goal—you’ll never completely and finally figure it out.
The sure-fire strategy for success begins with faithfulness…
…faithfulness to the right things is the objective for…
…faithfulness to the right things eventually produces the right results.
Remember, God thinks like a farmer. He didn’t create the city of Eden and place man in it; he created a garden. Therefore, I encourage you to think like a farmer also. Keep sowing the right seeds (deeds, thoughts, words) and trust God for the right harvest.
It is better to be an old-fashioned behind-the-times farmer who is sowing the right seeds than an up-to-date farmer with state-of-the-art equipment and the best strategy available (today) but who is sowing the wrong seed.
- The ONE THING for today: Strategies for planting the seeds will almost certainly change, but the vital importance of planting the right seeds will not change–stay focused on that.
Galatians 6:7-9 (NKJV)
7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. 9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
