Develop Your Potential and Do Something Now - by Joyce Meyer Ministries daily devotion 17 September Sunday
Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men.
— Colossians 3:23 (AMP)
I believe that many people are unhappy because they aren’t doing anything to develop their potential. If you want to see your potential developed to its fullest, don’t wait until everything is perfect. Do something now. Start laying your hand to whatever is in front of you.
You must give your potential some form by doing something with it. If there is a desire in your heart to try a new opportunity, then step out and find out if God has gifted you to do it. You will never discover all that you are capable of doing if you never try anything.
I want to encourage you to resist fear when you’re taking a step of faith to develop your potential. God’s perfect love casts out fear, so we don’t have to live paralyzed by a fear of failure or making a mistake. And it may feel safe to stay in your familiar comfort zone, but you will never succeed at developing your full potential or being fulfilled in what you are doing. So make a determined decision to step out into what you feel God is leading you to do.
You are full of God-given potential, and He wants to do more through your life than you could ever imagine, but it requires your cooperation. Step out and serve Him wholeheartedly today.
