POTENTIAL Challenge

PotentialChallengeWhat is YOUR Potential – Part 1
What is YOUR Potential – Part 2

Last week I posted Part 1 & 2 of “What is YOUR Potential.” Here is an excerpt:

“Our potential in based on our purpose, and our purpose is connected to our passion. What we are passionate about, is a huge clue to discovering our purpose. Once we get down to the core of who we are, we must DO something about it. Potential stays potential until we begin to put one foot in front of the other towards our purpose.”

You aren’t doing more because no one has challenged you. So that is what we are going to do this week. So here’s the challenge. Here are a series of questions to help you discover your purpose, and examine those things in your thinking and perspective that is limiting you and holding you back from reaching your full potential. I dare you to read it (Part 1 & 2), and go through these questions and see if you don’t discover something about yourself you’ve never seen. So here we go… Continue reading

What Is YOUR Potential? – Part 2

potentialRead Part 1

All of us have been through many different experiences in life, some good some bad. Certain experiences can cause you to draw back from who you really are. If you expressed your truest self and it was met with a negative reaction in some way, it can cause you to withdraw that part of you out of sight from the world. If it happens enough times, or is hurtful enough, it can even get closed off from yourself, locked away somewhere deep on the inside of you. Over time, you can just create many different versions of yourself for the purpose of public consumption.

Most people when they come to Christ have no idea who they are. Living in a fallen world, with all the hurts, disappointments, disillusionment, and losses takes a toll on the once innocent, believing child they were. Most develop coping skills and defense mechanisms that further complicate the expression of who they really are.  Continue reading

What Is YOUR Potential? – Part 1

potentialIn Myles Monroe’s book “Understanding Your Potential”, he makes some striking statements at the beginning of the book. “Buried beneath the soil within the walks of the sacred grounds are dreams that never came to pass, songs that were never sung, books that were never written, paintings that never filled a canvas, ideas that were never shared, visions that never became reality, inventions that were never designed, plans that never went beyond the drawing board of the mind and purposes that were never fulfilled. Our graveyards with potential that remained potential.”

Only a very small percentage of people ever really experience even part of their potential. This is extremely sad. When you consider that God has a plan for each person born, few ever really walk out and fulfill that plan.

We will delve into the following questions:

What is our potential as a human being? What is my potential as a person? What is the potential of the believer? How can I find out what my potential is? How can I tap into this great wealth of potential on the inside of me? Continue reading

Suddenly!

ImageWe had a suddenly take place this past Sunday in church. After the life changing Vous Conference 2014 we just went to, where we were set ablaze with fire and passion in our hearts. We had a suddenly take place this past Sunday in church. From the time the worship team did a run thru to praying/worshipping before service, the presence of God was powerful and tangible.

After the message of Fan the Flame, the suddenly happened!Tears were flowing from the pastor on down, and God moved on hearts like I have not seen before. God began to use these young adults as they moved out and began to speak what The Lord put on their heart to encourage everyone, some of them for the first time. Some of the shy ones were now bold and speaking with power and clarity.

I can’t wait to see what is going to happen this Sunday!

Do You BELIEVE God? – Part 2

Image

In the wilderness, the Israelites believed the lie that God was powerful enough to bring them out of Egypt, but not faithful enough to bring them into the Promised Land. Unfortunately, often times we do the same thing. We believe what He accomplished for us on the cross. We thank Him for saving us, redeeming us and delivering us. But we have trouble continuing to believe that He will fulfill His promises in our life. If we allow unbelief in the door of our hearts, we believe the same lie as the Israelites. We in essence believe that He was powerful enough to bring us out of darkness, but not faithful enough to bring us into the promise.

Do You BELIEVE God?

Image

Do we understand just how much the Lord longs for HIS PEOPLE to believe Him? Do we comprehend just how important this is to Him? You have to strip away the religious jargon, and get down to brass tacks and ask yourself, “Do You Believe God?”

This is something that is so basic, yet it is so overlooked. It is something that most Christians almost automatically assume they do, and that is to BELIEVE GOD. How many times however, do our words and our actions tell on us that the contrary is true?  Continue reading
