It is important in life that we always keep in mind that we are on this
Earth for a reason and our life is meant to make a difference. There are
many instances when we lose focus and believe the lie that our life has no
meaning. This is something the enemy wants you to believe because he knows
if you believe the opposite of that, you would be unstoppable in reaching
the goals and aspirations that are in your heart. The Lord declares in
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the
Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
The Lord has an expected end for each of our lives, but we must make up our
minds and stand in who God has created us to be. (Deuteronomy 14:2)
If you are not sure of the steps that need to be taken for you to advance
to the next level of victory, then I hope this message both challenges you
and shows you the way to unleash your potential.
UNLEASH YOUR POTENTIAL
Inside every seed is a tree. What you see is not all there is. That is
potential. God created everything with potential, including you. Potential
is dormant ability, reserved power, untapped strength, unused success,
hidden talents, capped capability. Potential is all you can be but have
not yet become; all you can do but have not yet done.
The keys to releasing your potential:
You must know (be related to) your source. To understand the potency of
your potential it is essential that you know God.
You must understand how God designed you to function. God designed you to
function like He does by faith and love. Your potential cannot be released
without a combination of faith and love.
You must know your purpose. Whatever purpose God created you for, He also
gave you the potential to fulfill it. Your potential is equal to the assignment.
You must understand your resources. God provides abundant material and
physical resources to sustain and maintain your life. Resources were
created to live on and with, but never for. We are never to worship the
resources, nor be controlled by them.
You must have the right environment. God designed man to function in the
garden, in relationship with Him, free from sin, and in daily communion
with His spirit. The Fall of Man contaminated this environment. The key to
realizing your potential is the restoration of God's original environment.
Jesus came to restore us to the Father, and sent the Holy Spirit to restore
our internal environment.
You must work out your potential. Work is a major key to releasing your
potential. Potential must be exercised and demands made on it, otherwise
it will remain “potential”. Good ideas do not bring success. Good hard
work does. To release your true potential, you must be willing to work.
You must cultivate your potential. Potential is like a seed. It is buried
ability, and hidden power that needs to be cultivated. You must feed your
potential the fertilizer of positive company, give it the environment of
encouragement, pour out the water of the Word of God, and bathe it in the
sunshine of personal prayer.
You must guard your potential. It is sad when what could have been becomes
what should have been. God called your potential your treasure, something
to be valued and guarded from sin, discouragement, procrastination,
distractions, and compromises.
You must share your potential. True potential in life is not what is
accomplished, but who benefits from it. Your deposit was given to enrich
and inspire the lives of others.
Be encouraged and know that within you there is ability and strength to
overcome and triumph over every obstacle that comes before you. Do not
stand in your trials and doubt the strength that God has given you, but
rather gird yourself up with confidence and face that mountain commanding
it to be moved in the name of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:13-23) (Mark 11:22-26)
Always remember that with man it may be impossible, but with God all things
are possible. Reach the potential that is within you and be all who God
has made you to be. (Mark 10:27) (Acts 1:8)
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
1 Peter 2:9-10 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy
nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who
hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light: Which in time
past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not
obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”
Isaiah 43:25-26 “I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for
Mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Put Me in remembrance: let
us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.”
Acts 1:8 Jesus declares “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy
Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in
Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part
of the earth.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
