The Power of Passion and Purpose
Passion!… Is it a part of your life? What about purpose? I know for myself, there have been times in my life that the answer to these questions would have been a resounding… NO! But God didn’t leave me that way, and He won’t leave you that way either. He has a much better plan.
God wants us to live in His abundance, abundance of knowledge, abundance of love, abundance of His peace. His plan is for us to live the blessing. The Bible calls it the blessing of Abraham and according to the Word, this blessing is huge. See Galatians 3:13 – 14 and Deuteronomy 28. And God’s ultimate desire outside of salvation, which by the way includes the blessing, is for us to walk in this grace, this favor, without measure.
I don’t know about you, but this gets me excited! It gives me zeal and an enthusiasm to go after all that God has for me and to go after it with all that is within me. Once we see, in the Word of God that we can live in the fullness of God and His blessing then nothing can stop us. The passion and excitement begin to rise up within us and we become a powerhouse for God.
There is much that He wants us to do, much that we have been called to do, for His Kingdom. But we will never get it done unless we begin to tap into the resources that God has made available to us. How do we do this?
Joshua 1: 8-9 AMP This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success. Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
How do we make our way successful and prosperous and full of the blessing of the Lord in order to fulfill our calling in the Kingdom? By meditating on the Word of God day and night. How will this help, you may ask. First of all, to do so solidifies the truths of God’s word way down deep into your spirit, so that it becomes like the very breath that you breathe, which in turn means that when situations arise, you will automatically take the wisdom of the Word which has become a part of you and begin to walk it out.
This in turn will make you prosperous and successful to whatever you put your hand to, because God’s truth and wisdom supersedes any other wisdom out there and you will have an advantage you have never dreamed of.
So get excited! Your purpose is before you dressed in the passion and excitement and success of the Lord. Go for it!
