Key Bible Verse: Seek your happiness in the Lord, and he will give you your heart's desire. (Psalm 37:4, GNT)

Dig Deeper: Psalm 37:3-6

If you haven't found the work God intended for you, ask yourself these questions: What drives you? What makes you excited about each day? What would you do for free just to be doing it? What would you never want to retire from doing? Is there something you would give up everything else for—all of your material possessions and comforts—just to do because you feel so good doing it?

If that doesn't help you identify a passion, ask those closest to you for their assessments and suggestions. Pursue God and get to know him as a friend. Pray for guidance and meditate on his Word. Ask others to pray for you as well.

You'll know you've found a passion when your talents, knowledge, energy, focus, and commitment come together in a way that excites you like a child with a favorite game or toy. Your work and pleasure become one and the same. What you do becomes part of who you are

Prayer for the Week
Heavenly Father, help me to wake up each day with the realization that you have a plan and a purpose for my life. May I use my gifts, talents, interests, and passions to build your kingdom and to bring you glory.

The message Nick has shared with us this week is not new. The verses he shared with us have been in the Bible for a couple of millennia now. Deep in every man's heart we already knew the truth Nick espoused. So what was the big difference? Why did Nick have such a big impact on a number of men this week? Why does he have a big impact on millions of people around the world every week? I don't think it's because of, or in spite of, his lack of arms and legs. I think it's because of something else: faithfulness. Bryan Loritts, Scott Haltzman, Greg Pruett. Who are they? Authors that MOI have used as a basis for our daily study over the past year. They too are faithful. The same power that they and Nick use is available to us through the Holy Spirit. For the sake of our families, churches, and nation we need faithful MEN! The power is there. It's so simple. Have faith in God and great things will happen! That's what Nick is calling us to. It's a powerful message.
