As an amateur history buff; I love reading stories of people who have preserved and became successful or reached their goals. It did not matter if they were rich or poor; educated or uneducated; attractive or homely. The creative force behind any great thing you come across in music, art, or science is passion. No one can live a great life without passion.
Passion energizes life. It is a passion that makes ordinary people do extraordinary things. Passion is what makes ordinary people walk in the supernatural.
God plans to give you a rich and satisfying life. (John 10:10) The enemy also has a plan to kill, to steal and to destroy your passion. In order to rob you in any area, the enemy first attacks your passion for that thing!
Marriage, for example, the reason there are so many broken marriages is people have lost their passion. If your walk with Christ is monotonous and boring, you need to find where you have lost your joy.
“… I hold on to you for dear life, and you hold me steady as a post.” Psalm 63:8 (MSG)
