The measure of your true potential is your spirit .
God has always intended that you and I would live from the inside—from the spirit- man in communion with the eternal Spirit of God .
Without that #relationship, you are limited to the potential of your soul and your body.
The apostle Paul in his letter to the church at Rome wrote:
The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is #life and #peace (Romans 8:6).
Please note that the Bible says that the mind controlled by the Spirit is like a #fountain of life gushing forth with the potential of God through the Spirit of God.
Paul also writes:
Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their #minds set on what the Spirit #desires (Romans 8:5) .
The Spirit of God has some desires.
I believe these desires are God’s original #predestined will for your life as written in the #book described in Psalm 139:16.
If you allow the Holy Spirit to fellowship with and minister to your spirit, and you remain hooked up to the #Source of your potential, then you will live according to the knowledge of God’s revelation of your true potential.
There are things in God’s mind concerning you that your soul can never receive, because it cannot discern them.
#God has information on your ability and potential that will aston- ish you and your family.
Paul mentions this in
1 Corinthians 2:9-11:
However it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”—but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit.
The Spirit #searches all things, even the deep things of God.
For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him?
In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
Whether you are young or old, rich or poor, black or white, a college graduate or a high-school dropout, you are still a treasure of potential.
The measure of your true potential is #hidden in the Spirit of God.
It can only be #tapped by a relationship between your spirit and His. Go after the #deep things in God that are related to you as the deep of your potential calls to the deep of the Omni-potent One.
Decide to discover God’s concept of your potential.
1) The key to knowing your true potential is to know your Source—God.
2) Man is a triune being: body, soul and spirit.
3) The spirit is intended to relate to God, the soul to the mental realm and the body to the physical environment.
4) Death is isolation from the spirit world. We are spiritually dead at our physical birth.
5) Your body is not the measure of your true potential.
6) Your soul (mind, will, and emotions) is not the measure of your true potential.
7) The measure of your true potential is your spirit.
8) God’s desires for your life are #discerned by your spirit through #fellowship and #communication with the Holy Spirit.
