Daily Inspiration

January 25, 2021
“Your lives light up the world.  Let others see your light from a distance, for how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop?  And who would light a lamp and then hide it in and obscure place?  Instead, it’s placed where everyone in the house can benefit from its light.  So don’t hide your light!  Let it shine brightly before others, so the commendable things you do will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 The Passion Translation
 
WHAT IS MY MOTIVATION
An actor preparing for a role will read the script and memorize the lines but they will need the director to give them their motivation, what they are to feel and what the goal of the storyline will be.
I often have to recalibrate when I go about my day.  I can get so bogged down in the details, so immersed in my own little world that I often fail to see the big picture.  And when this time of carrying the world on my shoulders has crushed me lower than a snake’s belly, I need to look to my God who redirects my motivation.
Reading Galatians 5:22: ‘But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  Notice it says “fruit” not “fruits”?  The fruit is composed off all the traits.
How do I get out of the way so this fruit will be evident in my life?  The answer is obvious-Get self out of the way. Allow God to work, be willing to have The Holy Spirit work, to rise up like a geyser, to “burst” out of me and erupt over everyone I meet.
As Pastor Rick Warren states right at the beginning of his bestselling book, “A Purpose Driven Life”, ‘It’s not about me.’ 
My motivation is God—it’s all about Him!  My good deeds must point to Him, I must be the needle on the compass of a Godly life that always points to the origin that is God.
That’s why the Scripture says, “Let your good deeds shine out for ALL TO SEE, SO THAT EVERYONE WILL PRAISE YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER.”
