Be Motivated!

 

Beloved,

All of us can think of things that we would love to change in our lives; aspects of relationships,

employment, exercising more, eating better, or a more consistent devotional life, to name a few, are

things that may come to mind as we reflect on what we would like to change. The challenge of

change is that it requires work. Nothing changes by itself, but either something new must be added or

something old must be subtracted.
 
 
When it comes to change, it is often in the area of our motivation that we are found lacking.
 
Think about it, how many things would we love to do if only we had the  the motivation to get them done.  
 
Many times there aren’t even valid explanations or excuses for our lack of motivation.

 

Without the proper motivations, we as believers will never progress into all that God has designed us to be.

Lacking motivation can lead us to being stuck in places of comfort that do not stretch the gifts that God has

placed in us. The enemy uses our lack of motivation to keep us stagnant and far away from the purpose

that is waiting to be cultivated and matured in us. Paul  reminds us that we can do all things through Christ who gives us
 
strength. Each of us should be asking ourselves, “when is the last time that I tried something for the first time?” Doing all
 
things means that we must first begin doing something.
 
Let us take today to examine what areas of our lives lack the motivation to get things done and ask God for the strength,
 
desire, and energy to move forward.
 
In Him,
Rev. Nathaniel Wright
