We have been unable to define the limits of human potential. It has been impossible to clearly articulate what is possible and what seems impossible for people to achieve. It doesn’t matter whatever accomplishments a person has already achieved, the answer to the question: “can we do better?” is always a yes. When you reflect upon your life and think about where you are in life right now, you might be tempted into thinking you have tried your best. However, you can do much more than you are thinking. If you will fully unlock your potential, you are going to need the power of God to work within you.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us(Ephesians 3:20 ESV)
When you think about the people that have changed the world forever, think of people like Isaac Newton and his work in physics. Think about Frederick Douglass, a slave who became a prominent leader in the abolitionist movement, which sought to end the practice of slavery in America. You would realize that they are ordinary, might even say flawed people that did extraordinary things. There is a core out there from where we can draw grace, strength and inspiration to tackle anything and handle anything. You do not have to be perfect or awesome. You just need to acknowledge and get trained in the knowledge of God.
You could double, triple or even increase your productivity by a factor of ten and there would still be room for growth. It baffles me that even though we know God is powerful, and that God will always channel his power through people. We are reluctant to accept the call and allow the power of God to work within us for the greater good of the community. This is not a matter of religion or chasing clout. We all can find expressions for the power of God. We all can take up a watch somewhere. We all can play a role in whatever God is doing during our days on the earth.
