Scripture of The Day
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
I have had the pleasure of hearing Dr Myles Munroe many times over the years. He is the foremost teacher on purpose and potential. I will never forget the example he gave when he asked the audience, “where is the richest place in the world”? Some said the emerald minds in Brazil, other said Ft Knox, and on and on…
He said, “no”. “The richest place in the world is a grave yard!” We were all perplexed at his response. He said, ” Buried beneath the soil within the walls of those sacred grounds are books that were never written, songs that were never sung, businesses never started, dreams that never came to pass, paintings that never reached a canvas, inventions that were never designed, plans that never went beyond the drawing board of the mind, and purposes that were never fulfilled. Our graveyards are filled with potential that remained potential.” How sad.
I want to encourage you today, to believe Jeremiah 29:11. Believe that you are more than what you have done. Believe that you are a man or woman of God full of great potential. Don’t hold back! Allow God to use you in a mighty way! Fulfill your potential.
