‘’What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us’’.
Every equipment or product comes with something called manual.
Like a refrigerator, television, washing machine, iron etc. all comes with a manual.
The intent of a manufacturer attaching a small booklet called manual to his product is to give details information on how to manipulate and maintain the product.
When you open the manual, the first thing you read is: Before plugging in this product, read this manual carefully
But most of us don’t read as it stated on top of the manual.
When you turn to the first page of the manual you find a description of the product, and often a picture as well, describing the various parts and what they can do.
The next page usually tells you what you can expect from the product.
Finally, they tell you: If something goes wrong with this product, do not fix it yourself. Take it to a qualified technician who has the certification from this manufacturer to fix it.
If you want a piece of equipment to operate at its maximum potential, you have to follow the manufacturer’s instructions. If you don’t follow the instructions, you may damage the product.
Only if you follow the instructions can you expect the product to meet the demands specified by the manufacturer demands that equal what the manufacturer designed and built into the product.
God’s Manual About Man
‘’Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us’’.
We are excellent, completely designed and built in the likeness and image of God.
But we don’t know what we can do. We can’t even imagine the full extent of our potential.
Knowing this, God sent us a manual that contains a description of our parts. He said, “Now this first part is your spirit and the second part is your soul and the third part is your body.
Now here is what your parts is supposed to do…here is what the soul can do…here is what the spirit can do.”
God also tells us the potential of this equipment called human beings. In His manual, He lists all the things we are capable of doing.
When God first presented this piece of equipment called man, something went wrong. Instead of taking it back to the manufacturer to be fixed, we took it to a second-class, unskilled technician. And look what he did. He destroyed product and denial its full potential.
We submitted God’s equipment and product to Satan, who is an unauthorized dealer with no genuine parts.
But God loved us so much that, even though the warranty had run out, He decided to take back the product.
God is starting all over again…… and He’s putting in His own parts. God is rebuilding and remaking us. He knows us better than anybody else, because He is our Creator. His Word, the Bible, reveals much about His attitude toward our potential.
What God Said About Your Potential
You have the potential to be in God’s class. And that is to say; you possess the same qualities of potentials as God possess and he stated it boldly and clearly in his manual when he first created us.
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them
God sees you as being in His class. Because He made you in His image, you have the potential to operate like God.
God sees in you the potential to dominate, rule and subdue the whole earth.
[God said] “…let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” … God blessed them and said to them “…Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground” (Genesis 1:26,28).
Everything in the earth must be under your subjection, not mastering you.
You have the ability to be fruitful and reproduce after your kind.
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it” (Genesis 1:28).
Again God is calling forth something that’s already in you. He didn’t tell the man and the woman to try to be fruitful, He simply told them to do it.
He knew they already had the ability to multiply and reproduce and fill the earth. You too can reproduce yourself.
He always places the potential inside before He calls it forth. Whatever God calls you to do, He has already built in.
You have the ability to imagine and plan to do anything.
The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them”
God gave you the ability to imagine and plan and bring into being anything you desire.
You have the potential to believe impossibilities into possibilities.
Everything is possible for him who believes
Not only are you able to plan, but you also have the ability to believe something that seems impossible and actually make it possible. If you can abandon yourself to an idea and sacrifice all you have for that idea, God says, “It’s possible for that idea to come to pass.”
You have the potential to influence physical and spiritual matter.
I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven (Matthew 16:19).
Jesus is talking here about your power to influence what’s on earth as well as what’s in heaven.
You have the power to influence things in both realms of earth and heaven. You may never have imagined that you possess that kind of power. But Jesus says you do.
You Have The Potential To Receive Whatever You Ask.
If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.
God says you have the potential to receive whatever you ask.
But first He requires that you stay hooked up with God. Then He says, “Go ahead and ask me for anything. I’ll do whatever you ask.” What potential! That’s God’s word on you.
You have the potential to do greater works than Jesus did.
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
