Develop Your Potential by Joyce Meyer - August 08, 2014
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.
— Ecclesiastes 9:10
Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language
defines potential as “existing in possibility, not in act.” Potential
cannot manifest without form. Like concrete it must have
something to be poured into, something to give it shape and make it useful. To develop potential properly you must have a plan and pray over that plan, you must have a purpose, and you must be doing something.
Many people are unhappy because they aren’t doing anything to
develop their potential. In fact, many of them never develop their potential because they don’t do anything except complain that they’re not doing anything!
If you want to see your potential developed to its fullness, don’t
wait until everything is perfect. Do something now. Start laying
your hand to whatever is in front of you. You cannot start at the
finish line. You must start at the beginning like everybody else.
