Are You A Person With Passion?
But [it is] good to be zealously affected [passionate] always in [a] good [thing],
and not only when I am present with you.
It’s sad to see a person with no vision in their life: they have no passion, no motivation; they just exist!
We can easily become apathetic and stagnant, but the more we refresh ourselves in God’s Word, pursuing Him, the more open and excited we become about His plans for us. Consider Jeremiah 29:11, “…for I know the plans I have for you…” Meditate on that scripture for just a bit and see if you don’t sense hope, enthusiasm, and passion building inside of you!
We go to God and receive His vision, purpose, and dreams for our lives and then allow them to be set aflame with passion. Passion is a consuming force that once ignited, and regularly fuelled, will intensify and grow. God is the one who gives you a dream and then sparks that dream in your heart. But you must continually add the fuel of the Word of God to your dream in order to keep it burning.
There will always be voices trying to quench your passion. Satan himself will attempt to snuff out your dreams. People will come to discourage you, often unintentionally, because they are not passionate about their own dreams. That’s why you must continually protect and feed your dream until you see its manifestation. Be unwavering in allowing that passion to motivate you, and drive you to move your dream forward!
Passion paired with vision is powerful. Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” People without a vision are non-productive people! It is tragic to lose sight of your vision, your dream thus losing your drive and motivation – your fire!
Don’t settle for a life with no purpose. God wants to use you. You are very special to Him! Just knowing how much God loves you and that He has called you to do something special should excite you!
When you know that God has called you for a purpose and you are on the road to fulfilling that purpose, there will also be the zeal, passion and discipline to do the things required to see the dream come to be. God gives the dream. You take the action. Don’t passively say, “If it happens, it happens.” No, go after it! In Genesis, God called Abram to leave his homeland. Abram took action and God then gave him a vision – descendants to outnumber the stars – and a new name – Abraham!
Don’t delay any longer! God is waiting on you to get passion back in your life and take action to see your dream fulfilled!
Will you choose to allow God to spark your passion for your vision? Now, that’s the choice-driven life!
