The God Factor In Success.

23 05 2010

Have you ever wondered, “What can I do? What is my full potential?”

The only way to get an answer to that question is to find out from God, your creator because only the manufacturer of a product can tell it’s full potential. Genesis 1:26 says, “And God said, let us make man in our image and after our likeness…” So, God made you not only to have His identity but also His ability. Genesis 2:7 also says, “And God breathed into man the breath of life.” God breathed His potential and capabilities into man. As if that was not enough, After God made man He blessed him; that means He empowered and enabled him to function.

God actually created you to do what He can do. So, the only thing you cannot do is what God cannot do. After creation, God transferred the responsibility of discovery to man and said to him, “Subdue the earth and replenish it” because He had put in him the potentials required to do. And over the years man has succeeded in subduing his environment to a large extent; on the land, the sea and in the air. He has been able to tame every kind of animal you can think of, invented diverse kinds of machines and made great discoveries. But, as man makes discoveries, he is simply recreating what God has already created.  So, God is the yardstick for measuring your potential. This should help you to understand that you are not a trash, you have unlimited abilities and potentials.

Don’t Let Men Limit You!

Each time you say, “I wish I am like that person,” you are limiting your potential because that person is not your limit, God is your limit. We can look up to men who have made great achievements in life, but that should only be for inspiration not for maximization.

Men are just an interim source of encouragement, you must see beyond them to your real potential. If you have a mentor or role model, it is good for you to think of becoming like that person, but don’t stop there because you have what it takes to go beyond whatever that person has achieved.

You will remain a victim of mediocrity and inferiority if you keep looking at men as your ultimate yardstick.

Also, when men assess you and declare their opinions about you, don’t allow them limit you. Someone may call you are a failure, that is simply his opinion. Your ultimate assessment is between you and God, so don’t allow men to place a peg over your life.
