Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 17 January 2023 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche – Knowing And Deploying Your Potentials
TOPIC: Knowing And Deploying Your Potentials (Seeds Of Destiny 17 January 2023)
SCRIPTURE: A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men. Proverbs 18:16.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your potential will take you to your palace.
Gifts and potentials are the pathway to destiny. Your gifts and potentials create the pathway to your destiny.
So, one way to live a fulfilled life and destiny is to discover and deploy your potentials. Your potentials are critical to your possibilities in life.
That means you must know your potentials, gifts and endowments. You must know what God has loaded into you. You must know your graces and capabilities. Know what you carry.
Now, why must you identify your gift or potential?
a) Your gift is key to your lift in life
A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth (or lifteth) him before great men. (Proverbs 18:16, paraphrased)
Joseph was lifted from the prison to the palace by a gift, the gift of dream interpretation.
b) Your potential is your vehicle to prominence
This also means that your potential is your vehicle to the palace. Your potential will take you to your palace. Samuel anointed David but what eventually took David to the palace was his gift that was exposed (1 Samuel 16:17-21).
Beloved, there is something you carry that will make you to effortlessly stand before principalities and powers, and great men and great women. Your gift or potential is your vehicle to prominence; your potential is your vehicle to the palace.
c) Your potential is key to the realization of vision
Your potential is key to the realization of your vision and purpose for living. Your potential is the key that grants you access to the realm of the vision and purpose of your life.
The gift of dreaming and the interpretation of dreams made the vision of Joseph to finally come to pass. He interpreted the butler’s dream and the butler reported it to Pharaoh (Genesis 41:9). Joseph, by deploying his gifts, eventually fulfilled his purpose on earth.
Remember this: What will take you to the palace is your potential.
