...God...calls those things which do not exist as though they did. (Romans 4:17, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Very often, we see potential in other people that they cant see in themselves. When you speak vision into them, when you tell them what they can become, you can help set the direction for their life. Your words have the power to push people into their divine destiny. I believe that the reason some people are not living at their full potential is because no one has ever spoken faith into them. No one has taken the time to say, Hey, youre great at this. Youve got a gift here. Youre going to do something amazing.
I believe that one of our assignments in life is to call out the seeds of greatness in other people. Look around at who God has placed in your life. Theyre not there by accident. Take time to study them. See what theyre good at. What are their gifts? What do they excel at? Dont just think about it, speak vision into them. Tell them what they can become. Let your encouragement ignite the greatness on the inside. Help them rise up in confidence so they can be all God has called them to be!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the people Youve placed in my life. I choose to be faithful, to speak life and call forth the greatness in them. Thank You for bringing me to new levels as I help others rise higher, too, in Jesus name. Amen.
Joel’s a good guy.
