Do You Recognize Your Potential?


Do you recognize the potential within you? Do you see it and understand it? Do you live your life reflecting what others often do to you? Simply passing you by not seeing your God-given potential. You are someone born by accident, without purpose. The wealth of potential in you is greater than you or anyone on this earth can comprehend. Only God, your loving Heavenly Father, fully grasps the infinite potential within you because He is the creator of it all: “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” (Ephesians 3:20, NLT)

An artist sees all things differently than others. It is said that Michelangelo would spend days simply walking around a piece of marble, talking to himself. He would see the potential of the sculpture in the marble, the masterpiece. After seeing, He worked to release it. In the same way, God is working in your life. Even though the world may reject you, dump you, leaving the garbage heap of life, God still sees the potential He placed within you and is working to release it. His desire is that His masterpieces’ potential is being realized in and through you every day.

While others around you may discard you, know that you are not garbage. You are not junk. God is looking at you each moment of the day seeing all the masterpiece potential that others ignore. Never forget that your worth is based on what someone is willing to pay. God, your loving Heavenly Father, was willing to pay the price of His son Jesus on the cross. Never accept what anyone else tells you about your worth, only God your creator determines your true worth. Others simply cannot see you and your potential as fully and completely as your creator.

Connecting with Him is the greatest thing you can do today to allow your potential as His masterpiece to be released in and through you. Take some time today to spend with your Creator prayerfully considering your potential that He has placed within you. You must recognize what He has a place within you, only then will you be able to co-operate with Him to release it and live as the masterpiece He created you to be.
