YOU SHARE GOD’S POTENTIAL                                           Mark 10:23-31

Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.” (v27)

Human beings are God’s crowning creative act. The treasure He put in us He took from Himself. He chose to give us part of His potential so we could use it for Him. God could have run the world by Himself, but He brought us into His plan so we could bring glory to Him by revealing all He is. He doesn’t need our involvement to accomplish all He is capable of doing and being, but He wants us to enjoy the blessing of participating in His purpose. Your gifts, talents, and abilities are your share of the endowment God gives to mankind to bless all creation.

As a person enjoys watching a child learn new things, God finds satisfaction in watching you discover and use your potential. In essence, you show forth God’s nature and reveal His potency when you fulfill your potential. Your purpose is equal to your potential, and your potential is equal to your purpose.

The more you understand your purpose, the more you will discover what you can do. Thus, God gets excited when you take authority over your bad habits. He enjoys watching you discover and use the deposit of His power and wisdom within you. Sometimes it would be easier for God to just snap His fingers and take over, but then He’d lose the joy of watching you order your life and the pleasure of seeing you expose His potential. (Dr Myles Munroe)
