In the first few months of the year, you may experience setbacks on the goals set at the beginning of the year. As a result, you can feel stuck. So then, how do you reset your clock, reset your mind and heart, and get back on track?
By making God’s glory your goal in life.
What does the glory of God look like?
Strong’s concordance describes the glory of God as “weightiness—that which is substantial or heavy; glory, honor, splendor, power, wealth, authority, magnificent, fame, dignity, riches, and excellency.”
Living for God’s glory means you allow His power, splendor, and abundance to “weigh” on you. The result is that others see His excellency through you.
How to Make Living for God’s Glory Your Goal
- Reset your clock…
12:00—Seek first the Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33-34).
3:00—Remember your power to get wealth comes from the Lord (Deuteronomy 8:18-20).
6:00—Walk in the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).
9:00—Believe you can do all things through Christ who makes you more than a conqueror (Philippians 4:13, Romans 8:37-39).
- Ask the Spirit to reveal where you get stuck…
Where do I have trouble seeking Your Kingdom first?
Where do I have trouble trusting You for finances and provision?
Where do I have trouble walking in the fruits of Your Spirit?
Where do I have trouble embracing my identity in You?
- Know, see, and feel…
KNOW where you are getting stuck in the cycle. Write down the areas Holy Spirit reveals to you.
SEE what a breakthrough looks like. Visualize what it looks like to be unstuck and in the flow.
FEEL success as you get unstuck.
The Enemy Doesn’t Want You Living for God’s Glory
When you live in the rotation of the clock, you practice and exercise faith. You focus your heart and efforts on God’s purposes, not your own plans. You practice giving and trusting, not worrying about provision. You exercise walking in the fruits of the Spirit when making choices and interacting with others. You see yourself as a King’s child, one who is invited to the Father’s table, not adopting an orphan or religious mindset.
Remember that… in consistency lies the victory. Living this “clock rotation” lifestyle leads to your transformation—your victory! As a result, you begin living in God’s glory and favor.
However, the enemy will attempt to construct roadblocks in the rotation. He will sow seeds of disunity, negativity, human reasoning, emotional responses, doubt, and shame. All of these are obstacles that hinder glory—honor, wealth, authority, power, and excellence.
Satan will attempt to cancel your voice and finances. So, stay focused on God’s Kingdom—allowing Him to establish His covenant with you as you remember that power and wealth come from Him.
Moving Forward in God’s Glory
If you are feeling stuck in your Goals to Grow plan, it is time to check in. It’s time to step into and see your true identity as a co-heir, one with authority and power, in Messiah. What you sow—speak and confess with your mouth—plants seeds. If you want to move forward in glory and favor, declare God’s glory!
The word for March is PREPARE, just as Esther did. March is a time for Mordechais and Esthers to arise and shine. “Prepare and unsnare!”
Deuteronomy 28:44 (ERV) says, “The foreigners will have money to loan you, but you will not have any money to loan them. They will control you the way the head controls the body. You will be like the tail.”
As we prepare, reset our clocks, and check our goals with the Spirit’s, God will raise up Mordechais and Esthers to unsnare the hands and feet of those who will rise up and cancel the enemy’s assignments to control the minds and heads in the nations. We declare God’s glory—that we are the head and not the tail! Let us not get stuck, but step into and live for God’s glory. It is there we will find rest as we look forward to placing our feet beneath His table.
