How is your passion? I wonder if anyone has any stories over the past 50 days of their passion increasing? If you do would love to hear from you as passion is infectious.
““What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.””
Mark 10:51 NIV
I wonder how many times in our crying out to Jesus to help us or to increase our passion, we forget to stop crying out to listen for a response. We can focus solely on the problem at hand and that’s it. We never see the forest through the trees.
If in the last month and a half if you haven’t seen an increase in your passion yet you have been praying for it today it might be the time to wait in his presence. In our busyness it is easy to ask for things but even harder to wait for them. We want things now and don’t want to wait.
Maybe Jesus is right there asking the same question to you as He was giving the blind man.
My challenge you today is once you have called out to Jesus is to then wait on His reply. He may very well ask you “what do you want Me to do for you?”
Dear Jesus, sometimes when we pray we never stop talking, but it is a two-way conversation and we need to start listening to You, help us to listen. You reveal yourself in many ways, through your word, our relationships and sometimes you even speak to us. Thank you for not being a silent God. Help us to ignite our passion and start being mission centered people. Amen
