There is so much pressure in the world to talk, walk, dress and be like the people we see on television and the magazines we read. Being “yourself” is not popular. But when God made us, He made us unique, … Continue reading
God had amazing plans for David’s life but unfortunately no one saw the amazing potential God put in him.
When Samuel visited his family to choose a king, his father literally forgot about him! Samuel had to press Jesse if there was anyone else! Crazy right.
His brothers didn’t see a thing.
(1 Samuel 17:28)
And then David was brought before king Saul because of the way he spoke about Goliath. He was fearless and courageous. But even then, king Saul didn’t see what God saw.
“And Saul said to David, You are not able to go to fight against this Philistine. You are only an adolescent, and he has been a warrior from his youth.”
1 Samuel 17:33 AMPC
“You are not able to go to fight”
He didn’t even know David and what he had gone through till that point. But he told David, he couldn’t fight the giant!
Man saw nothing when they looked at David but God saw a mighty warrior and that meant everything.
I touched on a bit of this in my previous post, we need to be careful who we allow to define who we are. God is the true source and He knows who we really are.
You need to break free of words, ideas and other people’s perceptions of who you are that have kept you living below your true potential. It’s clear from David’s story that no man really knows your true potential. They may have an idea but they don’t know the full potential God has put in you.
But breaking free can only be done by the power of God. You need the Holy Spirit to come in and reveal the true picture of who God created you to be and He will if you ask Him.
As you take the step be assured the Lord is with you. He desperately wants you to know who you really are. He wants you to know and experience the amazing things He planned for you more than you will ever know.
So make the decision today!
Bless you friends!
I love eating fresh chillies. When I go to the supermarket that’s one of the first things
on my list.
Anyway, I bought a packet of fresh chillies a few weeks ago but made the mistake of putting them
in the fridge. A few days later they started turning color. I took them out of the fridge and made
a decision to throw them away. A few days had gone by and I still had not thrown them away. By then
some of them had dried up.
But one evening as I was cooking a thought came to me. I decided to try one of the dried chillies and to
my surprise it was hotter than a fresh chilli. I am not talking about a little hotter. I am not exaggerating
when I say it was 6 to 7 times hotter!
(And yes, it was at that time I realized how to make dry chillies……haha)
As I pondered on this I was encouraged. The chilli was about to be thrown out. It seemed like it had
come to the end of it’s life but there was so much in store.
Did the chilli even know the potential it had??
It may have dried up but it was brimming with untapped potential.
Don’t let anyone count you out. Don’t count yourself out! There is so much God has put in you.
Like the dried up chilli there is so much more in you than you realize.
The chilli was designed that way by God. It’s not a mistake that it gets hotter when dried.
You may think you have reached your max but that’s so far from the truth.
Don’t give up friend. God’s plan is still being revealed in your life.
There is so much more to discover and walk into.
Bless you friends…
