Releasing Potential

10 Jesse had seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said to him, “The LORD has not chosen these.” 11 So he asked Jesse, “Are these all the sons you have?”
“There is still the youngest,” Jesse answered, “but he is tending the sheep.”
Samuel said, “Send for him.”
12 So he sent and had him brought in…Then the LORD said, “Rise and anoint him; he is the one.” 13 So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the LORD came upon David in power.
1 Samuel 16:10-13

Believing in someone’s potential is one of the most God-like actions we can involve ourselves in. And there’s probably no better example of it in the Bible than in the story of David.

Samuel anointed David to be the next king even though he seemed to be the littlest and the loneliest son of Jesse. He looked past the shepherd he saw and looked to the king God had appointed. Consequently David went on to be the greatest king Israel had ever known. And it started with a prophet that believed and spoke to his God-given potential.

Make no mistake. In your life, the impact you will have will be in direct proportion to your ability to speak life into the potential of the people God has placed around you.

Wives, every man has a king and a kid in him. The one that will come alive is the one that you speak to.

Husbands, one of the reasons you can’t make the marriage you have the marriage you want is because all you see is your wife’s problems instead of her potential.

Leaders, there is more greatness in your people than you give them credit for. Start speaking to it and you’ll start seeing it.

Everyone, your words will stick with the people you speak them to. And it will shape them more than you know.

Whose life will be better because you believed in them?
Whose destiny will be redirected because you believed in them?

Samuel saw and spoke to the king in David. And he became a king. Imagine what the people around you will become when you start speaking to what God has put in them.

God’s will

The will of God is simply this: “On earth as it is in Heaven.” Isn’t it refreshing? When we pray, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done,” we’re praying for the King’s dominion and will to be realized right here, right now. That is a life-transforming, paradigm-shattering way to “do” normal Christianity. who owns domain names search How incredible to think Jesus took the keys of His kingdom and gave them to the church. That means what is free to operate in Heaven – Joy, peace, wisdom, health, wholeness, and all the other good promises we read about in the Bible – Should be free to operate here on this planet, in your home, your church, your business, and your school. What is not free to operate there – sickness, disease, spiritual bondage, addiction and sin – should not be free to operate here, period. We are commissioned to continue His mission and  destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). It’s an awesome way to live!
