4 LESSONS FROM CHAPTER 3
1. Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance. God created you with potential. He awaits to see what you will do with the remarkable gift He gave you.
2. You are capable of much more than you are presently thinking, imagining, doing or being. That is your potential. Unless you continually try to reach higher, go farther, see over, and grasp something greater than you now know, you will never discover your full potential.
3. God is the source of all potential. He is everything we haven’t seen yet. He planted within you the ability to be much more than you are at any one moment. Like the apple seed, you possess hidden resources and capabilities. Most of the potential God gave you at birth still remains within you, unseen and unused. What I see when I meet you on any given day is not all you are.
4. When God wanted to make plants, He spoke to the ground, because that is the material substance from which He wanted them to come. When He wanted to create animals, God again spoke to the ground because He had planned for animals to be made of dirt. When God created human beings, He spoke to Himself. You came forth from God because God planned that human beings should be spirit even as He is spirit. Too many people never discover God’s purpose for creating them. They look everywhere but to God for the meaning of their existence.
