Topic: The Benefits Of Releasing Full Potentials – from Seeds of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche “Dunamis International Gospel Centre” | Date: Monday 23 July 2018.
SCRIPTURE: And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God? 1 Samuel 17:26
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When potential is released, energy is also released; the release of potential makes a person younger and stronger.
Previously, we saw that profitable living is living to release one’s potential. That is to say, until our potentials are released, we are not living profitably on earth. On the other hand, the refusal to deploy your potential is a waste of your existence on the earth.
Now, it is important to know that there are benefits for full potential release. Let me give you two of them:
1. Commitment to full potential release is commitment to quality existence
Any time you are committed to pulling out what God has put inside of you, you have made a commitment of living a life of quality and vitality. David could not sleep (die) until he had served his generation with his prophetic, priestly, kingly and musical gifts and skills (Acts 13:36). No one can kill you when you are ready to download what God had uploaded into your life.
- To Release Potential Is To Release Energy
This was what happened to David. As a skilled fighter, and having killed the lion and the bear, David was excited when he saw Goliath; his energy was released to deal with what everybody ran away from (1 Samuel 17). Your energy level rises when it is time to release potential because the release of potential is the release of agility.
As a matter of experience, after preaching in six services on Sundays, I would feel like starting another one – the seventh service. One day, after ministering in Worship and Wonders Night, our all-night programme, I told my wife that I feel like preaching for another six hours. She said, ‘Well! You can go ahead and preach, but let the rest of us who are normal human beings go and sleep.’
Beloved, when potential is released, energy is also released; the release of potential makes a person younger and stronger. I counsel you to deploy your potentials maximally for the benefit of humanity.
Remember this: When potential is released, energy is also released; the release of potential makes a person younger and stronger.
