A God-inspired passion is a sanctified ambition. Sometimes, the worst person to meet is a person who possesses conviction without passion. Without passion convictions become impotent. Passion animates conviction. It gives conviction life and momentum. It is passion that drives you toward fulfilling your God-given destiny. What is your God-inspired passion?
“Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.” (Jeremiah 20:9 KJV).
“For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked many.” (2nd Corinthians 9:2 KJV).
“I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children.
“For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.” (Psalm 69:8,9 KJV).
What is eating you up? Is it a godly flame or a worldly flame?
