You Still Have Untapped Potential
“……. eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed]. Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny]. ”
I Corinthians 2:9 & 10 (Amplified Version)
Have you ever searched franticly for something only to discover that is was in the first place that you looked? Much to your dismay and frustration - the item had been in the place where you had left it – just sitting there waiting to be discovered. Or maybe in your search to find something, you may have even covered it up while searching for it, making it even more undiscoverable. Then, when you finally stopped, and settled down – you found with ease all that as previously not seen.
Studies have revealed that while 100% of our brain is functioning; most people don’t use the entire 100% to its fullest capacity. So in the natural…….so in the realm of the spirit. God has, before the foundation of the world, placed on the inside of you everything that is needed for you to excel in this world. As he told the prophet Jeremiah: “Before I formed you in the womb of your mother I know you, and set you apart to be a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)
Are you looking for something which God has already placed on the inside of you? God has given to us the potential and the ability to excel in every area of life. We have at our disposal access to the governing forces of this world! We have at our disposal the ability to voice a command and bring into alignment everything that is out of order! God has given to us the advantage of being an heir and a joint heir with His Son! (Romans 8:16-18) Have you really ever grasped the essence and significance of that statement? That means that whatever Christ did – I have the permission to do likewise. I even get to further advance and operate with a greater magnitude than He! (John 14:12)
However, many times, because we haven’t fully understood this perception – we go through life functioning and operating from a position of inferiority instead of superiority! We aren’t aware of whom we are …. more less, of whose we really are. And what’s even worst, we have no clue of the potential within us that’s lying dormant. Your physical characteristics and achievements (nor the lack of them!) can’t alter the fact that you still have lying within you untapped potential.
It has been often stated that the cemetery is the richest place that there is. Why? Because millions of people die and take with them unspoken wisdom, undiscovered inventions, unwritten books,… and a plethora of unexposed and untapped potential! For whatever the reason, people have passed on, and they have never made a significant withdrawal from their internal bank!
Whenever we become aware of something – it then becomes our responsibility to make the necessary amendments. Therefore – from this point forward, you will be held accountable for your diligent actions concerning the discovery of your untapped potential.
Remember – roots run deep. Whenever we see a plant… it is anchored by the root system. We can’t see the roots from the surface (normally). Nevertheless, they are present and hidden deep within the dirt! Therefore, in comparison; whatever you can see of yourself, is only a representation of what is on the inside of you. Without regards to what you’ve already accomplished – there is still untapped potential within you! God has made you and He is the only one who truly knows your full potential. Ask Him to reveal to you your areas of untapped potential. Then seek Him for the wisdom to gain access to, and to activate those areas. Time is running out – but you still have time to get the ball rolling!
Be determined that you won’t allow the enemy to use this strategic maneuver (untapped potential) any longer to in your life. Be bold and very courageous! (Joshua 1:9)
Better days are truly ahead of us… and YOU play a vital role in your advancement!
