Tuesday: My Personal Potential — 7 Comments

  1. This was a wonderful scripture to read and knowing that the Lord knows your ways, attempts, intentions, movements, and altogether the wholistic of you as a person better than you know yourself, the lord knows how sincere and contrite your heart is, this truly makes a person of the Lord stay steadfast in faith.

  2. God does not want extremes. Being doubtful or overconfident about one's ability are not good signs of ministering but making one self available and be wholly dependent on God is what is required.

  3. No matter what ever we think our weaknesses are, we should always realize that God made us so and if He who made us so is calling us to do a particular work for him then it's logical to think that He has plans of turning those weaknesses of ours into strengths and potentials for spreading the gospel. All we need is to make ourselves available for him and he'd greatly surprise us. For those of us struggling with weaknesses, consider Moses (a positive example) and the last servant in the parable of talents (a negative example). Very few people can bury something as small as a coin in the ground and still find it easily (when the master came back, the servant didn't even search for it. He just went and got it out of the ground) - he had a potential which the Master saw in him but which he ignored and for that he was severely punished. It's a lesson for us - our supposed weaknesses shouldn't stand in the way of evangelism.

    • Dear Nelson,

      Please allow me to point out that it was no "coin" that was buried in the ground, in the parable. It was a talent (some 25 kilograms) of silver. God has entrusted each individual with tremendous potential for serving Him!

  4. Thank you. The message inspires me. The Lord knows my potential more than I know.
    What do I ashamed for?
