“Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God. May Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.” Psalm 143:10
It is time for reassessment the year and to make sure you are up to date with the goals and plans. If not, take action to get back on track if necessary. Timing and planning are essential in this phase of the second half of the year if you anticipate your goals to be achieved. Timing and planning are your responsibility for your better strong peak for half of the year. Remember, it is you who will get you where you want to go, no other person can do that for you.
The best way to achieve your goals is by taking a step back and reflecting on what you have accomplished over the last few months. It’s okay to feel like you’ve failed, but don’t let yourself become disheartened when things look like they are going south. Keep moving forward with confidence and determination because you know that there is always something better waiting for you. James 1:12 says “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”
When God was about to get the Israelite back on track, He set up a plan in Jeremiah 16:14-21. He sent for fishermen to fish out the bad guys and hunters to hunt them down. This plan worked well because it was an intentional plan to make sure that the people would not pollute by evil.
“But now I am sending for many fishermen who will catch them,” says the LORD. “I am sending for hunters who will hunt them down in the mountains, hills, and caves.”
Likewise, you can do the same with your business and relationships. If you want to be successful in your business or relationship, then you must make an intentional plan to achieve success. Delete what is not helping you to grow and add things that are working. Above all, pray for God to help you find the right people who will help you reach your goals. Psalm 119:12 says, “Blessed, are you, O LORD; teach me your ways!”

3. I decree today: I shall not allow the mistakes, the error, or negative circumstance of the first half, to determine my second half of the year 2019. Therefore, I refuse to give up!
