“Being the Best”

“Being the Best”

How do you become the best you can be?  You have to know there is more in you than you are putting out.  In other words, there is some untapped potential.   You are better than what you are.  But, you must have a desire to reach your full potential (professionally and spiritually).  The enemy will first try to keep you from *realizing* your potential.  If that doesn’t work, Satan will try to keep you from *maximizing* your potential.

Remember you are fearfully and wonderfully made!  God took 7 days to create the world, but 9 months to carefully mold and tweek you!  We owe God our best!  Besides, the Lord already knows what you can handle even if you don’t know.

Psalm 139:1-2 (NIV)
O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.  You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.

In order to be our best, we have to grow up.  Sometimes this means accepting constructive criticism or things we don’t particularly want to hear about ourselves.

1 Corinthians 13:11 (NIV)
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.  When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.

Something to think about: God will put “agitators” in our lives to help us become the best we can be – people who may “agitate” us, but in the end help us gain wisdom.  Like a washing machine, the agitator is what gets the dirt and stains out of your clothes.  In the same way, God may put someone in your life who aggravates you, but this person may also teach you patience, forgiveness, or simply how to love others.  Everyone in your life is there for a reason.
