As you got up this morning were you forced out of bed or was there an excitement to get the day started? Either you will be drawn out of bed with passion or live in a state of wanting to stay there forever. Do you have any drive to face each day or is this a big struggle for you?
Is there anything in life that gets you excited, fired up, thrilled, motivated, hopping, skipping, jumping, dancing, adrenaline pumping, thank God I’m alive to experience this?
Well, I guess it’s time to get your Zzz’s. Not so fast my friend not that one, let’s deal with our subject matter first. What kind of ‘zeal’ do you have?
1.Enthusiastic devotion to a cause, ideal, or goal and tireless diligence in its furtherance.
2.Eagerness and enthusiasm.
Look at the popular television show American Idol and how much zeal and passion these people show looking to get a chance at their big break. Zeal is the thing that gets your adrenaline pumping about a particular thing, even if it seems like a long road ahead. You may have experienced that this level fluctuates at times. I’m sure you have seen times in your life when you were so excited and motivated you could have carried the world on your shoulder. Then there were those days like life felt so hard.
Did you know that those days of high energy and zeal were meant to carry you a long way? It’s like when you fill your car with gas to take you where you need to go, that’s providing you did the right thing. The more you have the further you can go.
Therefore in those days when you’re at high peak it is wise to be as productive as possible. It doesn’t matter how high your level is, the reality is that you will face some challenging days. During those moments is when you can reflect on the accomplishments and the progress of times past. This exercise should be a positive factor because it should recharge you and get your juices flowing again to go after your intended goal.
Everyone that was successful in life faced days of opposition and wanting to give up. It’s what you do in the face of opposition that determines the results you get in life.
Above all things, there is nothing in life that you should have a greater zeal for than God and the things he desires. “1Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. 2For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God,..”. Romans 10:1-2 (KJV)
You must bear in mind things will pass away but God will last forever.
Please stay away from these zeal blockers:
1. Negative people
2. Corrupt lifestyle
5. Separation from God.
Feel free to let us know your views on this and help us by sharing this with your friends.
Are you ready to face eternity? If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life and desire to make that commitment now please repeat the following prayer:
Lord Jesus be merciful to me a sinner. I realize that I have sinned against you and come short of your glory. I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and I believe in my heart that God has raised him from the dead. I pray for your forgiveness and ask that you save me now and accept me into your kingdom. Give me eternal life today.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
Take care until………and God Bless ya
