I have two great passions: one is to build the Church of Jesus Christ, and the other is to help God’s people fulfil their potential in life. The fact is that both of these are inter-related and each one supports the other. When the Church thrives, God’s people are equipped to fulfil their potential, and when God’s people flourish, they instinctively build His Church.
One of my favourite scriptures is found in Psalm 92:
‘Those who are planted in the house of the Lord Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,’ (Psalm 92:13-14)
A revelation of this powerful promise of God can change your life and produce wonderful results across the span of your life. When you decide to plant yourself in God’s House, you will thrive. Not only can I testify to this in my own life, but that of my family, my ministry colleagues and our church congregation. The fruit is evident for all to see.
We all face challenges and obstacles at various times, but God’s will is for you to flourish and succeed in every area of your life – from your relationships to your career, in your health and finances, to your spiritual life and your church.
The Bible is full of promise and encouragement to this end and there is no reason why you should settle for anything less than God’s best. The wonderful thing is that He has set you up to flourish in life because He has deposited seeds of the highest potential within you. No matter what you are facing right now or where you are positioned, God has so much more in store for you. You were created and destined to flourish and go from strength to strength.
