Perhaps you've heard an athlete whose team has just lost say something like this: "They just wanted it more than we did." There's a powerful truth at the heart of that statement. In the end, victory usually comes not to the one with the most talent, but rather the one with the most desire.
Someone once said, "Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal. The winner is he who gives himself to his work, body and soul." In the Bible, the power of desire to fuel achievement is consistently stated.
My question of the day for you is, "How bad do you want the dreams God has put in your heart?" How bad do you want to fulfill the will of God in your life? How bad do you want to be successful? How bad do you want to be healthy? How bad do you want to influence others? How bad do you want to see people get saved or born again. It is a matter of the heart and your daily routine.
Confession: I will fulfill the will of God in my life. I will make my dreams come true. Nothing is impossible for me. Holy Spirit is my Helper. I refuse to be average in anything I do. Everything I do, I do with great passion. Average is not good enough.
