God's Gift to You, Potential
Years ago the prolific gospel writer, Bill Gaither, penned the words and music to a children’s song entitled "I Am a Promise". In his song is the phrase “I am a great big bundle of potentiality.” What potential God has given us!
The challenge we face is the decision to access that potential. We have the tendency to degrade ourselves. Moses said, “Moses answered God, "But why me? What makes you think that I could ever go to Pharaoh and lead the children of Israel out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11 The Message) and Jeremiah said, “I replied, "I'm not a good speaker, LORD, and I'm too young.” (Jeremiah 1:6 CEV) Yet, when Moses and Jeremiah yielded to God’s call upon their lives, great things were accomplished
God didn’t call us because we are good speakers. God called us because God has given us the potential to do great things for God. God doesn’t call us because we are great musicians or educators or youth leaders. God calls us because God has given us great potential.
What will we do with that potential?
