When faced with something you have never done before, you may have thought, “Am I able to do this? Do I have the ability?” It’s natural that you think so.

But the truth is: you are more able than you think! You are created with a set of unique abilities and potential. Whether you feel like that or not, that’s the truth. Every talent you have is precious and priceless.

Do you know that there is no one like you in this whole wide world? God has designed you as an original and He hasn’t made any photocopy!

Check this out: “Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation!” (Psalm 139:13,14 – Message Bible)

Psychologists say that a normal person uses only 25 percent of his brain’s ability. It’s just like someone receiving a gift of 10,000 rupees and spending only 2,500!

You have more potential than you have ever used. You are more capable than what your experiences tell you.

There are people who have achieved great things. It happened not because they have super-brains. They simply put their abilities to use! They daily worked on their potential and as time went on, they started seeing tremendous results.

Do you doubt your ability about something you face today? Here’s the good news – you can do it! Ask God for His favor and strength. Launch out boldly.

Don’t allow fear to stop you. Have confidence in the One who created you. Have confidence in His abilities that He put in you.

You are destined to be a winner! Apply your priceless potential and experience marvelous results!

    The old famous quote goes something like: “God doesn’t call the equipped; he equips the called.” I’ve tried to keep that in mind. If I’m following God, my ability will work itself out.

      Good quote, Loren. As His ‘called’ people, let us continue to use what He has given us.

  • TCAvey

    Lorens comment reminds me of something I recently heard: “God doesn’t ask if your able, he asks if your available.” 

    God knows what we can do, like you said, he formed us! 

    There are countless example in the Bible of people called to do great things that at first glance don’t appear to be the “best” choice- some of them didn’t think they were the best choice either.  God likes to use us, to stretch us so that we rely upon him.  Great post. 
    We all need to believe in how special we are and what we are capable of through the help of God.

      That’s another good quote. Being available is the key!

    I really liked when you said,”They daily worked on their potential and as time went on, they started seeing tremendous results”. The key to reaching our potential lies in our daily agenda. Right now I’m working on writing an eBook, this is something at one time I never thought I could or would do. But now it’s a daily focus.

    • Joe Abraham

      Today matters! All the best for your eBook project.

        Yes it does and thank you.
