What we do with our potential?
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace” (Numbers, 6:24-26).May this day begin for you with these amazing words of blessing! May the mercy and grace of the Lord surround you today!God has good intentions for His children. He desires for every one of us to be successful in this life. In order for that to happen God has given EVERY ONE of His children gifts and talents. Each person’s talents are unique, but their purpose is the same: to serve God’s Kingdom and to communicate its values!For some time now we have been talking about what we do with our talents. In other words, what we do with our potential?A talent is almost the same as potential. The parable of talents could just as well be called the parable of potential. Potential is something unfinished that can be developed and completed. In the beginning potential can be invisible, but it nevertheless exists. In order to transform potential into reality, it must be developed. Based on the potential given to you, you can change your present condition. There is a beginning of change in you and everything you need to change your life. You have to develop your potential and bring it to completion.I want to say that there is huge potential in the Body of Christ: great ministers, great evangelists, pastors, prophets, scientists, businessmen etc. We talk about it all the time. But God wants us not just talk about our potential, but to become the people that have fully developed it. I don’t want people simply talking about the great potential, but to see it in action. You do not need to be a prophet to say that someone has a great potential. There are no people on this earth that do not have great potential inside of them. God has placed it into us. The problem is that we often do not want to move forward and to develop this potential inside of us. God desires us to do something with it. What we do with our talents and our potential determines whether we will become the people God has intended us to be.God will not only judge our actions; He will also judge our idleness. Being idle can grieve God. What we say is just as important as what we do not say. For example, we can praise God and for this reason God has given us a mouth. There is a tremendous potential sealed in our lips; we can say the right things, praise God, encourage and inspire people. But at the – and that is a sin. That is why God will judge both our actions and our idleness. Use your talents! Do your best for the Kingdom of God and you will see the flow of God’s blessings in your life.Wise king Solomon said:
«Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might» (Ecclesiastes, 9:10).I will talk to you tomorrow on the pages of „Daily Word for Spiritual Edification”!Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
