Wow! It’s the beginning of the second half of the twelfth month. 2012’s gradually winding up. It’s the season of general stock taking as resolutions for the oncoming year are being compiled.

Man’s insatiable desires and his endless quest for relevance would forever drive him to conceive, aim for, and plan towards reaching his goal(s) even in the face of unrealized dreams and shattered hopes.

As the year draws to a close, it is imperative we realize that as much as planning is key to succeeding, the fundamental strategy is to always remember the God factor as being the master key! Joshua 1:8 emphasizes the fact that the only way you can be prosperous and have good success is to meditate, confess and do the word. In other words, if you are not doing it God’s way and in line with His Will and purpose for your life, no matter how hard you work or plan, you are not getting GOOD success!

Yeah! It’s great to think, dream, plan and work hard at it but God’s purpose eventually prevails (Proverbs 19:21). He knows the end from the beginning and if He cares for the sparrow, be rest assured He has you in mind. I’ll tell you what, it’s only His blessings that comes with no iota of sorrow so while you are thinking strategy, let Him be the centre of your universe. You’ll sure be glad you did!
