A Daily Devotional
About finding heart…
Ephesians 1:18 I pray also
that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the
hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the
saints, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. (NIV)
Your enthusiasm can vanish.
You can burn out. Your motivation can disappear. Whatever heart you have to do a
certain thing or be a certain kind of person can disappear. We do not often have
problems with our motivation when we have it. Our difficulties with being
motivated appear when we have no motivation. Adversity of many kinds can
devastate us and take away our heart. We even use the term "lose
heart" to describe those times when our motivation has disappeared. Many
times, we lose heart because we have lost sight of the mental picture we had in
our mind inspiring us in the beginning. Keeping our mental picture in focus and
tangibly visible is essential. Our mental picture is essential in keeping us
motivated. Our vision or mental picture has a way of getting erased or getting
so blurred we do not see the picture any more. To find your heart, you need to
have a clear and definitive mental picture of what it was that inspired you.
Christ's hope for you is your greatest inspirational power. When you lose heart,
you need to find the original hope of God that fueled you. To find your vision
and find your hope again, remember to pray and meditate over what Christ wants
for you and from you.
