Potential, a word of Latin origins meaning to be able and to have the power. In short it is an ability you have to change the future, power in your hands to change the path you are on.
It was this concept that really challenged and empowered the students during this week. The biggest revelation was that even though we have big dreams and ambitions, the potential that lies within us are so much more than that, and even bigger is the plans that the Lord has for each one of us. Jeremiah 29:11 says: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”
In each of us He has placed the ability and the power to accomplish so much more than we ever could have dreamed about. He has placed the potential inside of you to be discovered, to be explored and to be shared.
I am speaking for all of us when I say that If I understand what the potential is that lies within me, and if I am authentic in using these unique gifts that only I have, then I can impact and change the world around me and live out the plans that God has envisioned about me long before time.
