Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 1 Corinthians 9:24. We all have great potential, and yet when opportunities and promotions are offered some of us will turn them down. In many cases we are insecure and unaware of how much could be accomplished for the Kingdom of God if we would only step out in faith and confidence. When we are insecure, frequently we will stay with what is safe and familiar rather than taking a chance on stepping out and failing. We avoid accepting greater responsibility, and the truth is that none of us is ever ready. But when God is ready to move in our lives, we need to believe that He will equip us with what we need at the time we need it. Humbly leaning on God leads to success. If our confidence is in Christ rather than ourselves, we are free to develop our potential, because we are free from failure. Have a wonderful day!
