Everyone has potential but not everyone reaches it!
As we come upon the season where so many people are graduating I have message for all people that are in transition and that feel the pressure to do something significant with their lives! You can and will accomplish great things as long as you are not "talked out of it"!
Most people spend their lives consumed with what others are saying about them. And many of us have chased after "things" to fill this void that only God can fill! What God puts into motion concerning you cannot be stopped by any outside source, it can only be stopped by your own will. When you say yes to God, nothing will be impossible. It's when there is a wrestling with your soul; where you resist the will of God, that you become frustrated. It's not what people say about you that hinders your journey...it's what you are saying about yourself! Remember that you have what it takes to start that business, to launch that ministry, to have that family, or whatever else is in your heart to accomplish!
Potential is the seed of greatness that God put inside of you before you were even born! Heaven had a conversation about you when you were being conceived and God declared that your future would be GREAT! Sometimes we go through trauma in our lives...but remember that for every seed to fully produce, there has to be some pressure applied! Don't give up because of a season of trials...know that you have what it takes to OVERCOME and achieve great things!
If we can change perspective on problems we will realize that problems are attached to prosperity! If you can find problems that you have been called and anointed to solve, then you have found your purpose. That means that your "haters" and "enemies" are in fact your proponents! What does that mean? That means that the fact that they are hating on you...is a validation on the very purpose they are speaking against. The fact that an enemy would give you attention points to the greatness in you that they are attacking!
Here's some power principles for you while you are pursuing the fulfillment of purpose!
1. Never run from problems...dare to be a solution maker! If you continue to run from problems you will never know the power that flows through a person that chooses to overcome!
2. There is never a temptation that God has not given a way of escape! That means that there is always a way for escape for you! You can overcome fear, you can overcome lust, you can overcome every distraction that the enemy places in your path to detour you from fulfilling your purpose! All you need is humility to submit to the leadership of the Holy Spirit!
1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)
"13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it."
3. Every person can discover their purpose through the easy formula...
Follow your Pure Passions to >>Discover your gifts >>>Discover what you are Compassionate about to lead you to >>>Discovering a problem...>>>Pray for a strategy from God...>>>Solve the Problem...DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE.
You have greatness in you! It's realizing that, believing it, and taking the steps of faith to walk in it that will set you a part from everyone else! Congratulations on receiving a degree...but remember that education continues for a lifetime! Continue to read and allow others to teach you! A degree is nothing with out the boldness to pursue the truth that you have discovered! Be Bold and Be Courageous and you will succeed!
