Low Batt
Just the other day I was caught in a situation where all my devices were running low on battery. And I had about 8 hours to fill. On my iPhone I have loads of personal development audio sessions. But because I am running low, I was not able to listen to them for fear that the battery will run dry way too soon. I’ve used my BlackBerry to do most of my writing. But because I was running low, I decided to conserve whatever is left for making that important call or to send those critical messages. My Kindle library has hundreds of books, but again because of battery power, I was not able read as much as I’d like.

All three devices have just so much potential. But because they were not filled with power, they were pretty much useless. In fact, at one point, these devices began weighing down on me and they felt more like a burden than an asset.

Unlimited Potential
The same can be said of humans. We all have unlimited potential to do the things that sometimes amaze ourselves. How we are able to send a man to the moon and bring him back. How we are able to run the 4 minute mile. And the reason why we all have unlimited potential is because of the Holy Spirit. That God has filled us the moment we accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior.

Never Underestimate Your Potential
For many of us, what we can now do could have been just a figment of our imagination previously. Therefore, we must never underestimate the potential that we have once we are filled with the Holy Spirit.

Prayer
Father, I thank You for filling us with the Holy Spirit and for us to be able accomplish what’s been previously only a dream. We pray all these in Jesus name, Amen.
