When you understand your God-granted POTENTIAL, and then you get a vision to accomplish something GREAT, the obstacles start to become more evident.
When you do not have vision, then obstacles are not really prevalent because you are have no direction in life or ministry. When you realize your GOD POTENTIAL and get a passion, then you become a dangerous person. When we become dangerous to the devil’s domain he will turn up the heat.
In either scenario, there MUST BE AN OVERCOMING, or we will get lost in the sludge of distraction.
The children of Israel did this! When Moses delivered them from Egypt (miracle), then they came to the Red Sea. When they came to the Red Sea instead of remembering how powerful God was to get them out of Egypt, they continued staring at the obstacle. Instead of activating faith to overcome, they sat down and complained. They became engulfed by the obstacle!
Exodus 14:10-12, As Pharaoh approached, the people of Israel looked up and panicked when they saw the Egyptians overtaking them. They cried out to the Lord, 11 and they said to Moses, “Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren’t there enough graves for us in Egypt? What have you done to us? Why did you make us leave Egypt? 12 Didn’t we tell you this would happen while we were still in Egypt? We said, ‘Leave us alone! Let us be slaves to the Egyptians. It’s better to be a slave in Egypt than a corpse in the wilderness!’”
Here is what a man with a God encounter, who has an understanding of the God POTENTIAL does:
Exodus 14:13-14, But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. 14 The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”
When you get engulfed by the obstacle you become a reactionary Christian, and you will always be disengaged from your God POTENTIAL.
When you see the reality, BUT, know that God’s POTENTIAL is best seen in IMPOSSIBLE SITUATIONS, then you will always move FORWARD.
THIS IS A GOOD ONE TO CHEW ON!
