USE YOUR POTENTIALS
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
Ephesians 3:20 NKJV
The day you were born again, the Holy Spirit came into you as indwelling power within your heart. When the time came and you received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, He came into you as the infilling power in you. He once came to dwell within you and teach you the things of God and how you are supposed to walk in the faith of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Later He came as the infilling power to fill you with power you need to overcome every forces of darkness through that power which works within you. There is a potential energy of the Spirit of God within you, through that power you can do things which the normal mind of man cannot do or even get to understand.
Potential are latent qualities or abilities that may be developed and lead to future success or usefulness. In other words we can say having or showing the capacity to become or develop into something in the future. There is a potential inside of you which has been developed by the Spirit of God since the day you said no to sin and yes to the salvation which is brought by faith in Jesus Christ.
This morning, God wants you to start using your potential to build His kingdom. There are some who were given the ability to sing soon after they received Jesus; they saw inside them the ability to sing and minister through music. Years have passed and they cannot even dare to sing in a local fellowships and they blame God as to why He is not using them.
You will not know how strong your hands are until you start lifting heavy stuffs. You will not know how much power the Lord has invested in you until you start using it for the sake of the Kingdom. You will never understand how faith works until you start using it in the time of trouble believing God for miracles.
I have learned that sometimes we don't know how strong we are in life until we face challenges. So use your potentials, use your faith, walk in love, stay connected to the Kingdom. Trust God, praise Him and continue being faithful in all of your doings.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord help me use whatever You have stored in me to build your kingdom that your name may be exalted in all the earth. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
