When setting and declaring goals, it has been said, “be careful who you share your goals with”. Often times, when we share our plans with friends or family, they cast doubt and negativity at us! It is wise to share your dreams only with those special friends who you know will stand in agreement with you according to Matthew 18:19 – “Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven”.
Fortunately, we have a promise of God about sharing goals and getting the support we need. Job 22:28 says, “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee; and the light shall shine upon thy ways”. So, God shines His light upon our paths and helps show us the way to our goals and dreams. I like the next verse, too: “When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and He shall save the humble person”. So, when your so-called friends and loved ones make fun of or tear down your dreams, know that God is there to lift you back up! I love that!
