Presidential Prayer Team;  G.C. – Sustained Passion


A well-known speaker uses the analogy of the jackhammer and hummingbird to describe two different approaches to life. For some, their purpose is always clear and their passion is to just drill a little deeper into that calling, similar to a worker with a jackhammer, rat-a-tat-tat. For others, it’s more like a hummingbird going from one flower to another, delighting in the novel and undiscovered.

And I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live.

Ezekiel 37:14

Whatever your perspective, to live with sustained passion requires an indispensable ingredient as Ezekiel, the biblical prophet, experienced. He had a vision – old dead bones scattered across the desert landscape. God told him the bones would live again. Then a mighty wind, the symbolic picture of the Spirit of God, moved through them and they got up and lived!

As the clock for 2015 winds down, how are you doing with “living your passion?” The question itself elicits groans from those struggling with burnout and disillusionment. If this is you, don’t worry, you’re not alone. If it’s not you, it is someone you know. Today, pray God will once again move, across America and through your life, with his revitalizing breath. His Spirit will bring passion and productivity to both.
