Romans 12:11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

Unfortunately, a lot of us get to a place where we get used to God’s goodness. There is no longer any excitement after being delivered from a situation, and now we just expect to be blessed. As a result of this commonality with God’s goodness, we tend to lose our zeal or intensity for the things of God.

Think back to when we first got saved, when everything would excite us. We would give God praise for the smallest things such as, when we found a scripture directly related to the situation we were facing, or praise and worship Him based on how far He had brought us, and we valued the importance of reading God’s Word.

It may take some effort, but some of us need to reflect on the goodness of God and all He’s done for us. We need to stop going through the motions of life and walk in the exciting purpose He has for us. When we reflect and walk in our purpose, we can maintain our zeal regarding the things of God.
