God Sees Your Potential
By Rick Warren

No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT)

God has amazing plans for you! But if you’re not connected to him, you lose out on everything he wants to do in your life.

Yesterday we looked at two things people lose when they’re spiritually lost: their direction and protection. Today we’ll be looking at a third thing they lose: their potential.

Your potential to do good things in the world is dramatically limited when you’re disconnected from God.

It’s a lot like coins. Put enough of them together, and they have great potential for good. You could feed a family, start a business, or even save a life. But you can’t do any of those good things if the coins are lost.

The story of the lost coin in Luke 15:8-10 is a good example of this. It’s about a woman who has 10 valuable coins. But, somehow, one of them gets lost. She doesn’t say, “I’ve got nine coins, so I’m not going to worry about the lost one.” Instead, she turns her house upside down to look for it and celebrates when it’s finally found.

Just because her coin was lost doesn’t mean it had lost its value. It still had great value! But what it lost was its potential to do any good.

God made you to do great things, far greater than you could possibly imagine. In fact, if God showed you what he wants to do with your life when you completely place it in his hands, it would astound you! 

The Bible says, No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT).

Maybe you’ve been disconnected from God for many years, and you think it’s too late for him to use you. It’s not too late! He’s your Creator. He sees you as highly valuable, and he knows your potential.

If you’ll surrender every part of your life to him today, you’ll start to see all the things he has prepared for you come to life.
