Achieve your Full Potential

Step Out of your Normal and Step Up Higher 

… the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits

                                                                                              Dan. 11:32

Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears;

let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’” Joel 3:10

We Possess our Full Potential as Israel Possessed their Promised Land

  • Die to your Past

Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them—the children of Israel.

Joshua 1:1-2

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 (AMP)

  • Your Inheritance is Larger than You Think

From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory. Joshua 1:4

Lord my God, you have done many amazing things! You have made great plans for us—too many to list. I could talk on and on about them, because there are too many to count. Ps. 40:5 (ERV) 

  • The Extent of your Possession is Determined by Your Step

 Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. Joshua 1:3

Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons. Acts 10:34 

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Heb. 13:8 

  • God Will Be with You

No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Jos. 1:5

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13                                

  • To Step Out You Must Be Courageous

Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.   Joshua 1:6-7

  • You Must Step Out into the Obstacles to Clear the Path

And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap.   Jos.3:13

Peter Stepped Out of the Boat

(Jesus) said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. Mt. 14:29

The greatest enemy of your full potential is complacency.

Action overcomes fear, delay strengthens it.
