“And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick” Matthew 14:14, NKJV.
A burden is to simply have a charge or duty to meet a need. Show me someone that has done something great for God, and I’ll show you the burden and passion that fueled it. I’ll show you the courage that moved them to give up mediocrity for greatness.
When you find your burden, you’ll find your purpose. You’ll find great joy. You’ll find present God’s anointing and favor. A burden from God won’t make you heavy. It makes you light and fulfilled. You can run and not get weary and enjoy it. You can walk and not faint with God’s burden because He will give grace to you to do it. It drove Jesus to give His life for us, and your burden and passion will drive you to give your life too.
Find your burden, and you’ll find your destiny.
Prayer: Father, I praise you. I ask that you show me what you have given me a godly burden and passion for. Show it to me so I can walk out what you’ve destined for my life. Enlarge my heart like yours toward people, and I thank you for giving me the grace, anointing, and favor to do it. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen!
