TOPIC: Understanding Passion
SCRIPTURE: And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven. Nehemiah 1:4.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your passion connects you to your portion in life.
It has been established that your passion is key to discovering your destiny in life. Moses had a passion for the deliverance of his people from captivity in Egypt. That passion made him to kill an Egyptian. (Exodus 2:11-12).
Beloved, your passion connects you to your portion in life. If you follow your passion, you can land in your portion. If you follow your passion, you can get to your possession.
Now, what does passion refer to?
1. Your passion is your fire of desire to make a difference in a particular area
Your passion is your fire of desire. It is that desire on fire that will not let you rest. The passion of Nehemiah was his desire on fire to deliver his people from the reproach of captivity (Nehemiah 1:1-4). Your passion is your desire on fire to make a difference in a particular area.
2. Your passion is your burden or weight of heart to be a blessing or to meet a need in one area or the other
Passion comes like a weight. It comes like a burden. If you are not careful, passion can at times weigh you down. That was what was on Nehemiah (Nehemiah 1:1-4).
3. Your passion is that which makes you to literally grieve or even weep in response to certain challenges or situations that require answers and solutions.
This was the kind of passion that made Nehemiah (Nehemiah 1:1-4). He was not underprivileged. He was not among those suffering in captivity. He was comfortably settled in the king’s palace, yet he broke down in tears because the wall of Jerusalem was destroyed and the people were in great affliction.
Beloved, ask God to show you the passion of your life. Follow it and fulfil your destiny.
Remember This: Your passion connects you to your portion in life.
1. Ask God to rekindle your passion or give you a new passion.
2. Follow your passion and fulfil your purpose.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for a fresh impartation of passion. Rekindle my burden and passion for both You and Your Work Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
