Your Purpose Is Your Passion

Your Purpose Is Your Passion by myles munroe

July 17

It has been said that there are three kinds of people in the world:

First, there are those who never seem to be aware that things are happening around them.

 

Second, there are those who notice but are continually asking, “What just happened?”

 

Third, there are those who make things happen.
Ronald Reagan and Mother Teresa belonged to the third group.

 

I have observed firsthand the truth of this statement, paraphrased from John Stuart Mill: One person with vision is greater than the passive force of ninety-nine people who are merely interested in doing or becoming something.

 

Most people have an interest in their destinies, but they have no passion or drive to fulfill them. They don’t really believe the dreams God has put in their hearts. If they do believe them, they don’t do the things that will take them in the direction of fulfilling them. Yet that is what separates the people who make an impact in the world and those who just exist on the planet.

 

When you discover your vision, it will give you energy and passion. Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.” I believe this Scripture expresses a truth that most people miss: You accomplish only what you fight for. If you are willing to put all your energy into your vision, then nobody can stop it from succeeding.

 

Prayer:
Father, may the vision that You have placed in my heart give me the energy to live each day for You. I desire to do everything You have laid before me with all my might. In Jesus’ name, amen.

 

Thought: When you discover your vision, it will give you energy and passion.

 

Reading: Psalm 18–19; Acts 20:17–38
