What Is Godly Passion?

What is Godly Passion? By Myles Munroe
July 18

Passion is the juice for living. For many people, life is drudgery. They have no motivation in regard to their jobs, spouses, education, or personal development. Someone once said that the most difficult thing about life is that it is so daily. Passion helps us to rise above our daily routines.

 

Godly passion is a deep motivation to serve the Lord. Remember that the apostle Paul said, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14). If you’re not motivated, then you will become a weight or burden to others. When you have passion, you don’t need the “right” conditions to move forward because passion is internally generated and is not affected by external conditions.

 

Where does passion come from?
First, it comes from a sense of purpose.
You are pursuing something that gives your life meaning. If you become distracted or opposition stands in your way, your destiny still pulls you in the direction of your desire because you can’t imagine not fulfilling it.

 

Second, passion comes from having a sense of destiny.
Passion comes from something outside this world and is connected to it. If you get your passion from something on earth, then when it stops, you will stop. Yet if you capture a sense of destiny that existed before you and will continue to exist after you, if you feel you’re involved in something that is larger than yourself, then you’re on your way to leadership and the fulfillment of your vision.

Prayer:
Father, I know that my life and purpose are all a part of Your plan for this earth. This gives meaning to my life each day. Please help me to walk in my destiny. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Thought: Passion comes from having a sense of purpose and destiny.

 

Reading: Psalm 20–22; Acts 21:1–17
