Setting Spiritual Goals and Prioritizing
Your Life For Scriptural Healing


A Growing Spiritual Life Develops The Mind, Soul and Body to Reflect God’s Word

Setting Spiritual Goals
Setting Spiritual Goals

Everyone experiences difficult situations. We can allow them to bring us anxiety or we can use scripture to bring victory. All negative emotions and behaviors can be modified to bring the successful conclusions we need.

You can stabilize and remain firm in strong faith rather than changing how you feel about your problems according to the color of your mood.  This is possible by setting spiritual goals and prioritizing time for God. It’s vital to your situation, health or personal goals to grow in God’s truth. 

For example, when it comes to healing, the medical profession has it’s limits. They’re not going to tell you in most cases how to think or believe in order to insure that their treatments, medications and advise will give you the maximum benefit.

However, with God, we have a set prescription for overcoming the problems we deal with daily. God shows us how to think, act and react to life situations successfully. But, everyone must make a choice to either grow inwardly or become spiritual dormant. God can’t force people to do anything because He gave us a free will. 

God Desires To Bless His People

Ephesians 1:3 makes it clear that God has blessed us in Christ with all spiritual blessings. It says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings.” By knowing that God desires to bless us and learning what our blessings are, we can have ultimate faith to receive them.  As we hold fast to a profession of what God promises without wavering, the seed of what we want manifests according to Hebrews 10:23.

When it comes to needed character changes, God leads His children according to their need. By prioritizing time for prayer we can receive His guidance for successful transformation. Then we put forth active faith and receive! If you can’t believe this truth on a daily basis, then you have “wavering faith.”

Setting Spiritual Goals By Organizing Your Life

Wavering faith will keep you from reaching your spiritual goals or prayer requests. If you have faith in God one day, and you’re afraid the next, then it will be difficult, if not impossible to have unconditional faith for what you need. Look what the Bible has to say about wavering faith:

James 1:5-8 5. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

To be double minded in faith is the sign of a new or “baby Christian.” The good news is that every Christian can become “fully mature.” So you can grow in faith while you work with God to receive answered prayer. God will see you through all situation as you exercise your faith to make it grow. 

My Experience Prioritizing My Spiritual Life

When I realized that I needed to grow spiritually, I examined my daily routine. The Bible says to center our lives on God, so I priortized my life to spend time studying scripture.  I began with church Bible studies, but found that studies alone weren’t enough for someone new to scripture. I also needed a Bible centered church to help me. 

Once I found a good church, I learned that I needed Bible training.  Bible training is a comprehensive study in a specific area of knowledge. The information learned must be acknowledged and utilized in one’s life to bring a 180 degree change. Bible studies are not as comprehensive and they rarely hold the student accountable for change. 

The time I spent in Bible training led to ministry school. That training led to the training I developed for Christians who don’t know how to live God’s Word. Christian training always leads to greater lifestyle choices and actions that lead to God’s will and life purpose.  Once I learned how to live the Word, Bible studies had more of an impact on how I lived my life.

Find Tuning Our Training and Study

Whatever believers learn, they should use the the Christian transformation process to make it a working part of their lives. There is always more to learn about the scriptures, so we must continue our studies for a lifetime.  This means that throughout our lives, even when we’re very busy, we continue to make time for God.

Fine tune your life goals by putting God first and you’ll find yourself with more time to do other things. We work, take care of our families, get educated, enjoy friends and hobbies, vacation, rest, and more. But no matter how full life is for believers, time can always be made for God. It’s an amazing and exilerating process that never ends.  

If your personal business or work-life is disorganized, take time to organize them.  Paying bills on time, for example, will avoid wasting time with needless problems. Instead of driving early to work for a coffee, use that time to add to your study or prayer time.  It’s a great feeling to keep the affairs of life in order.

If you’re at a very busy time in your life, set your spiritual goals for a time that will work best for you. Use week-ends to spend the most time with God. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the more consistent time you spend in the Word, the faster your faith will become unconditional when it comes to trusting God.  Perhaps while you’re new to the Word you can initiate more time at first and eliminate things that you can live without until you realize transformation progress. 


You can’t help but grow in your faith as you give your spiritual goals priority. So I encourage you to take time to learn how to function as a Christian in life.  Assess where you need growth and take time to receive the training you need. Find a Word-based church for guidance and to fellowship with other Christians. 

Begin by becoming the “new man” in Christ through Christian transformation.  Practice the faith and prayer principles from Mark 11:23-24 to become strong in prayer and communication with God. Learn to pray for others and love people in Christ.  Continue with God as He leads you to greater heights of accomplishment in His Word to serve Him and live His plan for you.
