Keys to spiritual maturity: Determination (Part 2)

keys to spiritual maturity -
When we are determined it will bring results. As children, when we were growing up my father would always set goals. At the beginning of each year he would draft goals for himself. I can remember one year as he sat down he goaled to build a swimming pool. It seemed like a remote possibility as we had always hoped for a pool. But this year was different. My Dad had made it one of his goals and usually he reached his goals. Later that same year our pool was built.
When we sit down and get determined to do something, we have the greatest possibility of seeing it happen. Here is an example from the Bible:

2 Chronicles 2:1 Then Solomon determined to build a temple for the name of the Lord.

Perhaps as Solomon sat down to write his goals, he set a goal to build a temple. This determination brought results.

2 Chronicles 5:1 So all the work that Solomon had done for the house of the Lord was finished.

Without a determined firm decision this would never have been accomplished!
