Stir Yourself Up! - by Joyce Meyer Ministries daily devotion 1 December Friday
That is why I would remind you to stir up (rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of, and keep burning) the [gracious] gift of God, [the inner fire] that is in you by means of the laying on of my hands [with those of the elders at your ordination].
— 2 Timothy 1:6
But after awhile, I got used to the fact that God loves me, and I didn’t feel the same passion.
Has that ever happened to you? Are you experiencing it now? If so, I believe there is something you can do about it.
Paul told Timothy to stir himself up, to fan the flame and rekindle the embers of the fire he once had. Paul’s message to Timothy is God’s message to you today: Stir yourself up! Stop living life being tired of the “same old, same old.”
We need to remember this: We make the decision to approach life with passion before it becomes a feeling.
So make a decision today to wake up every morning excited about the relationship you have with your Creator. Stir yourself up and live amazed by Him!
