Day 83 of Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life - a Daily Devotional
Develop Your Potential and Do Something Now
You may know that God's created you with great potential, but you can't stop there. You have to develop your potential.
I believe that many people are unhappy because they aren't doing anything to develop their potential. If you want to see your potential developed to its fullest, don't wait until everything is perfect. Do something now. Start laying your hand to whatever is in front of you.
You must give your potential some form by doing something with it. You will never find what you are capable of doing if you never try anything.
Don't be so afraid of failing that you never take a chance. Don't stay in the safety zone. You may feel safe, but you will never succeed at developing your full potential or being fulfilled in what you are doing. Step out into what you feel God is leading you to do, and you will soon discover what you can and cannot do.
You are full of God-given potential, and He wants to do more through your life than you could ever imagine, but it requires your cooperation. Step out and serve Him wholeheartedly today.
Prayer Starter: Lord, in everything I do, I want to serve You wholeheartedly. Thank You for encouraging me to step out and take action, developing the great potential You have given me.
Thru Primerica, one of the many great blessings we have received is getting to know Frank Bolella, a life coach who has made phenomenal impact on our lives and attitudes. He works with the United Nations, with IBM, and with several NFL teams, but he comes to Harrisburg he knows us by name. I've also had the opportunity to worship at the church he founded and where he pastors.
One of the key concepts he teaches on is that your Natural Attributes and your Developed Attributes, added together and then multiplied by your Self Concept, is your Personal Power and Productivity.
