Have you ever considered if you have what it takes? Do you believe you have something to offer others? Has anyone ever told you, you would be good at _________ ? You fill in the blank. All of these questions have to do with potential – what you already have inside yourself and what can make you who you will become.
We are all born with endless potential. The possibilities of who we become is a resource ready to be tapped, exposed and affirmed by key players in our lives. Our potential waits to bloom as a flower waits for the sun and rain to touch it’s petals in a greeting of nourishment. We all just need the right ingredients for potential to develop and become understood.
As a child, we faced endless possibilities of who we could become. You may have had parents who told you, you could become anything you wanted to be. Maybe there was another key player in your life, such as a teacher, who recognized something inside of you that you had not seen in yourself. As a child of God, I also recognize that God created me for a unique purpose and it all has to do with the potential He wired me with even before I was born.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 NLT
The seasons of our lives is an evolution of realizing our potential. A trusted key player, who believes we carry a unique gift, only need tell us and we can start believing that we have something to offer that we didn’t realize was already within us. Saying who we are out loud has the power to bring our inner selves into focus. Seeing who we are from someone else’s perspective provides a new view of the person that God uniquely created.
[Tweet “Potential is realized when the view of ourselves comes into focus.”]
God created us to be the best we can be. He also knows that our gifts will be unlike anyone else’s and this individuality is what makes our world so amazing. When we understand we carry potential, we begin to believe we can be the best person we can possibly be. When we allow God to uncover the layers of who we are, we open ourselves to the beauty of what God created us to be. When we say “yes” to God’s gifts and use them to honor Him, others and ourselves, we have taken our uniqueness and made it even better.
God knows we are able to do more than we think we can.
God entrusts us with His gifts as a blessing to be shared with others.
God always believes the best about us and still provides grace and forgiveness when we forget.
God is the key player in our lives who would love nothing more than to see us become the best we can be.
God is our today, tomorrow and yesterday. He stands by our sides and loves who we are through our trials, joys and weaknesses. He is our Savior!
Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
I’ve called your name. You’re mine.
When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you’re between a rock and a hard place,
it won’t be a dead end—
Because I am God, your personal God,
The Holy of Israel, your Savior. Isaiah 43:1-3 MSG
Have you realized your full potential? Do you believe that you were created for more?
May we believe in ourselves because we have a God who has entrusted us with unique gifts to realize our potential.
Blessings of grace along the way!
