Push With Your Passion

As an eagle stirs up its nest… so the Lord did lead him. Deut 2:11-12. A mother eagle knows that if she waits for her young to get out of the nest and fly on their own initiative, it’ll never happen. So she pushes them out! That’s radical, but they learn to fly and fulfil their destiny. John Maxwell says, “To succeed in life we must stay within our strength zone, but continually move outside our comfort zone.

Have you ever accomplished anything of significance while you were in your comfort zone? Think about it. The answer is “No” because we don’t like it. We resist it. We like to feel safe and secure. We don’t want to look foolish or fall flat on our faces. Complacency kills passion. It merely reduces us to average. It clips our wings and keeps us from soaring, no matter how much we want to. It takes initiative to succeed at anything in life.

Passion prompts us to leave our comfort zone and cross the threshold of our doubt. It pushes us out the door so that we can get going on the journey in life that God designed for us. Don’t let anything or anyone be able to stop you from achieving your potential. It’s said that when you get to the door of opportunity, you’re not supposed to merely knock, you’re supposed to push! So step out in faith, take the initiative and believe that God is with you.

There is always the tendency for us to get distracted in life. Our eyes will go off course when we are distracted and we lose focus. The Christian life is a walk with Jesus as our focus but the cares of this life and deceitfulness of riches makes us take our eyes off Jesus. We
