Prioritizing your passions in life
August 8, 2011
As a deer pants for flowing streams,
so pants my soul for you, O God.
What are the passions that drive your life? In other words, what motivates and inspires you to get up in the morning and face your day?
For some, your passion is your work. Now, work is good and can give you a sense of fulfillment in life. And I hope you get up in the morning excited about your work. But I also hope you have a job that’s more than a job—a calling of God on your life.
And then there’s a passion for your family. That’s especially good to prioritize and desire above all things to make your house a home so that your children walk with God and your family is committed to Jesus Christ. We need a passion for that!
David said in today’s passage that your highest passion, the one that surpasses all others, should be for God. Like a thirsty deer running to drink from flowing waters, you and I are to run in desperate need to God. Other godly passions are good, as long as they’re placed in the context of your greatest passion of all, the Lord Jesus.
So when it comes to your passions, keep the main thing the main thing by focusing on making Jesus Lord of your life and letting all your other passions flow from that!
KEEP GOD AS YOUR DRIVING PASSION AND ALLOW ALL YOUR OTHER DREAMS AND DESIRES TO FLOW FROM HIM.

Tap into your only true source of power!
When life gets busy, it’s easy to miss your daily time with the Lord. Yet, what you think will save you time actually ends up sapping you of the power you need!
That’s why I want to send you a copy of my popular 365-day devotional book called A Daily Encounter with God.This powerful tool contains a Bible-focused reading for each day that will help you plug into Jesus Christ—your only true source of power.
Along with the devotional, I’d like to send you a copy of my I Am Second story on CD. It’s my prayer that my story will be of encouragement to you or someone you know!
Both of these resources are my gifts to bless you when you give an online donation today. So thank you for giving to help PowerPoint reach people with the Good News of Jesus ’til the whole world hears.
