Power of Inspiration

Inspiration is a gift from God; it motivates us to do good things that please God. 

 “For as many as are the promises of God, in Him, they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us.”— 2Corinthians 1:20 NASB.

The absence of motivation means a lack of inspiration, which drives our dreams down the drain; we lose control of the situation, and the goal to make the dreams come true is no longer achievable. Motivation is dead if there is no action due to a lack of inspiration.   When we lack motivation, it affects us not only physically but spiritually as well. We sometimes think that God is slow to fulfill His promises because when we ask for something, it will be given to us later than sooner, and then we lose patience. On the contrary, God’s patience towards us is extraordinary, and it’s long overdue for us to reach repentance. His plan that no one perishes is more than enough to be an inspiration than an obstruction.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”— Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

The power of Hope cannot be ignored without considering the significance it brings to an inspiration that gives light to our walk and works excellently with Faith. Faith cannot function solidly without Hope. As the Bible defines,  “Faith gives substance to the things we hope for. In other words, Hope brings light to our path, and Faith leads us to draw near God. Therefore, Hope lights our way, and Faith gives life to God. Faith and Hope work hand in hand. Faith needs Hope to gain the truth about the mystery of love. Love leads to inspiration.

We work to make money because it is necessary to bring food to the table for our loved ones,  buy things we need, and travel to places we wish to, which is always possible. Nevertheless,  money is not an inspiration. It is a tool we use to make our wants a reality. When we make money as an inspiration, it falls into loving it, and the love of money is the root of all evil. When you are aware of these things, your Faith is not compromised. Faith is defined as God’s existence in our lives and the Hope of reward when we draw near Him. 

Faith in God is our inspiration to do things right, and without Faith, it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who acknowledge His existence.

The power of Hope brings significance to our Faith; we should also be mindful of its power. It is an inspiration that gives light to our walk and works excellently with the Spirit that protects and guides us in general and Faith in particular. Faith cannot function solidly without Hope. 

We enjoy His presence through His Spirit and feel that enjoyment that inspires us. Inspiration drives us to look forward to a better future and motivates us to make more for the best. God is our Hope and life inspiration; through Him, all the impossible to achieve becomes possible. He is the essence of all the things that we hope for. “Delight yourself in the Lord; he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4 ESV

God is all in all!
