TOPIC: Do You View Yourself as God Does?
SCRIPTURE: “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” – Ephesians 2:10
Think of the potential there is in one human soul. It is valuable not only because of what it is, but also because of what it can be. You, one day, can be transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ. Do you believe that? You may not see yourself as God sees you with His creative genius. It has been said that one time Michelangelo, a great sculptor, said as he looked at a block of marble, “There’s an angel in that block, and I’m going to set him free.” And he made a magnificent statue. That’s what God wants to do for you.
There is a lecture called “Acres of Diamonds” by Russell Conwell, in which he talked about a man who owned a farm in Africa. This man wanted diamonds. So, he sold his farm and went off looking for diamonds. But the person who bought the land discovered the farm was loaded with diamonds. The seller didn’t realize what he had! He was searching for something else. Your heart is on a search. You are standing in acres of diamonds spiritually—the potential that is in you.
- Where do you struggle to see your own potential?
- What would it look like to see your potential as God does?

Pray and ask God to remind you of your potential in Him.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
