Focal Text: Acts 1 vs 15 _► “And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples (altogether the number of names was about a hundred and twenty), and said”-|New King James Version, NKJV|
GRACIOUS greetings, Cherished one. After the disciples persevered in prayer as their lifestyle, there came a time that one of them STOOD up among the 120 people. His name was Peter. Peter had received a prophetic word from Jesus to take care and feed the sheep, and strengthen the others. So after prayer, he was energised to STAND UP. *This is very vital in this year. Don’t just pray and do nothing. Pray and “stand up”.* “Standing up” here is what I call strategic planning.
It was part of God’s plan for the disciples to influence their world for Jesus (Acts 1:8). *If they had prayed and done nothing, they would never influence their world.* Prayer is one of the strategic planning that has a spiritual bearing. “Standing up” is too is strategic planning that initiates what you have prayed about. The Greek word for “STOOD UP” in our focal text is “anistêmi”.
And it means ” to rise up from lying down or to get up”. Strategic planning is simply a plan that has a strategy with a specific goal in mind. Thus, a plan with an intended method, way or procedure with a target goal. Get up and plan strategically. *A vision without planning is like a car without tyres. It becomes stagnant and leads to frustration.* Do not get up and complain. Do not rise up and blame the government, parents, relatives or loved ones. Get up and plan strategically. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
_Precious Father I thank You for the wisdom to plan strategically. I stand up and engage in winning strategies. I refuse to sit idle without a plan. I yield to the Holy Spirit for the wisdom to engage in strategic planning in Jesus Blessed Name. Amen!_
PRAYER ALERT- _Pray and thank God for the wisdom to plan your life strategically._
*Enjoy A Blessed Saturday*
*KINDLY SHARE WITH OTHERS.*
