How To Prepare for 2022

How to succeed in 2022

Success or failure is not a mystery — Anyone who succeeds or fails is based on decisions that he/she makes consciously or subconsciously.

Proverbs 24:3-4 – By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. … The main point of this verse is relevant to life — your life isn’t haphazard – to navigate through this life — needs wisdom.

Psalm 90:12-17 – King James Version – 12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

3 important factors to keep in mind as you prepare for 2022—

  1. Knowing Gods plan — What he wants to happen in your life
  2. Knowing your part — what you need to do to align with Gods plan — It is not all up to God. The bible is full of instructions that tell us how to align with Gods plan
  3. Understanding Timing

The life of Abraham is a classic example of the importance of these 3 factors. Abraham made mistakes at the early stage of his life when he didn’t submit to God’s plan. However he was able to receive God’s plans after he submitted to God’s plan.
• At 77 God appeared to Abraham and told him that God would give him a son – and he would be the father of many descendants.
• Abraham tried to make this happen by his own ability and this caused Abraham unnecessary delays and he had a son —outside Gods will.
• Isaac, the son God promised Abraham only came after Abraham submitted to Gods plan.

So how do you prepare for 2022

  1. First — take stock of 2021 – Assess areas where you were fruitful and areas where changes are needed
    a. Celebrate all the successes – give God thanks
    b. Examine areas for improvement – ask the Lord for clarity –
    c. Take ownership for areas for change
  2. Ask God for the goals for 2022 – for this plans for your life for 2022

Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV – Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
