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.
