One crucial task every child of destiny must perform is to discover his or her potential. Your potentials refers to possibilities in and through you, by the help of the Holy Spirit. Please note, these are “possibilities”. Possibilities remain possibilities if an action/a series of actions that could make these “possibilities” become “realities” is/are never taken. Every child of God is loaded with potentials. Unfortunately, many believers today, great abilities and possibilities are lying fallow – untapped, latent and uncultivated. To accomplish Gods purpose for your life, turn your potentials into reality. Heaven will rate you by your ability to convert potentials into practical, workable steps capable of impacting Gods kingdom.
Example: the Bible tells us that the dead bones of Elisha raised a dead man who was hurriedly thrown into Elisha’s tomb. Wow. Does this mean that the double portion of Elijah’s spirit were still working in Elisha’s dead bones? Remember, this talk is about possibilities.
There will be many discoveries in heaven, and I’m thinking that one of such discoveries will be for us to discover who we could have become, if we had realized our potentials on time / if we had utilized all the opportunities God gave to each and every one of us, just at the right time.
After Peter walked on water, even though he almost sank and was rescued by Jesus, I want to believe that the level of his faith wasn’t the same again. And for those who remained inside the boat, the sight must have had a great impact in their lives – no wonder they lived by the gospel for the rest of their lives.
The prodigal son: the life of the prodigal son teaches us that our ability to possess our possessions is a function of recognizing and demanding our Kingdom rights and privileges. At least, the prodigal son demanded his portion. His other brother never moved an inch. Also, every believer has a portion in God. Better yet, you could make God your portion.
The big question we all need to ask ourselves is: why are we here? what did God create us for? and then we narrow it down to: why am I here, what did God create me for?
