I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me. – John 10:14 ESV
As Christian women there are so many things that we can be passionate about: our family, kids, job, friends, ministry, hobbies, traveling, entertainment, shopping, and the list goes on. True passion must come from knowing Christ and allowing His will to be done in our lives. There are many good things in this life that we can do but nothing is more important than our passion to know Jesus.
We must believe that God loves us and that His plans are the best for our lives. Passion for Him should be what drives us and keeps us going each day. Passion to know Him and to make Him known comes first and then all the other things in our life will have their rightful purpose and place. Most of all, God will order our steps by removing and adding things that should and should not be in our lives. He is the author of our story.
Lord help us to have Passion to know you and to allow you to direct our steps. May we hear and listen to Your voice every day of our lives.
Is there anything in your life that you are more passionate about than God? If so, how might the Holy Spirit be leading you to respond?
