People become passive when they don’t recognize their purpose. They prioritize their own lives, set their own purposes, and still expect to prevail in God. One word: impossible. A few days ago I asked you the question: Does God own you? (See Adonai). That question is not something you just answer right off hand – that is an ongoing questions that you must hold at the forefront of your mind for the rest of your life.
God does not own people who are passive. Passivity is birthed when you fail to continuously seek revelation from God. You see, when you’re passive everything becomes hard. Your money is never right; you don’t have peace; you’re lonely. Why? Because you are outside of God’s purpose for your life. God reveals His purpose to us through revelation. Many times, God has revealed the answers to our problems to us through instruction. But, we don’t follow the instruction because we want to do what we want to do.
If you are living your life for your own purposes and your own priorities, you are cancelling your potentials. You can put on a front like everything is working right, but deep down you know the truth. Until you shut your will down and yield to what God says to you, you will not reach your full potentials in God.
