Desiring or wishing to accomplish a goal doesn’t get things done. There has to be more than desire, there also has to be motivation and until desire teams up with motivation you are more than likely going to fail.
Yes, some things you set your heart to do appear out of reach and if this is your mindset then you probably are experiencing desire. But how or more importantly what is it going to take to not lose sight of or be motivated to do whatever it takes to do it? Well, you can’t sit idly by hoping that it will miraculously occur. It requires a zealous effort to lay hold of what can seem out of reach.
The goals you set this year may already be unattainable and more ambitious than you imagined. They sounded good at the time but who knew that it was going to take more than wishing and hoping. Nothing can get done if you do nothing. You have to work at it to move toward it. “Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit…(Romans 12:11)”.
So press on brothers and sisters! “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you (Jeremiah 32:17).”
