Reaching your fullest potential.
It sounds so wonderful; definitely what I want!
But what exactly does fullest potential look like? It probably looks nothing like what we envision.
Ephesians 3:20 tell us, “Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us,” [Amp]
How much can you pray, hope or dream?
Your full potential goes far beyond that! Your child’s full potential. Your husband’s. Your friend’s … and the man on the corner without a home. All are filled with God-given potential that the Giver is able and willing to supernaturally begin working in us.
So what are we waiting for? Why are we holding back on not only asking God to release His best in us but to loose His potential in those around us?
Sometimes I think I am waiting for God to take the first step. For Him to make His move. But in this verse, I think it indicates the first move is to be mine.
I have to dare to dream. I have to audaciously ask.
I’m doing it! I’m dreaming and I’m asking. They are probably tiny dreams in light of the One I am asking them from, but I’m starting!
How about you? What would reaching your fullest potential look like? What would you do, what would you ask for if the One who could do it all, asked you about your dreams?
If you want to be brave today and share with us what reaching your fullest potential might look like, this is a safe place to dare to dream. I will come alongside you and pray over those dreams. (For some, I’ll post my prayer right here. For others, I’ll pray as I read your comments) If you’d rather not share, but want to be including in the opportunity to win, just say “I’m in!”.
For one commenter on the blog today, you will be the winner of a Reaching-Your-Fullest-Potential gift box. I’ll announce the winner Wednesday on my Wednesday Wisdom Tip.
The Reaching-Your-Fullest-Potential Gift Box includes:
