The road to self discovery is not an easy one. The greatest tragedy in life is to go through life without realizing or making use of one’s potential. All of us are gifted differently so that we can impact our world differently. Many of us however are very busy in areas that don’t match our potential. We are busy majoring on minors while minoring on majors. Gideon was an ordinary man in Isreal who went through the emotions of his time without knowing how much potential he had. This gentleman was in hiding for fear of the Medianites an enemy tribe that had invaded their land. Fear had driven Gideon to a mixup; He was threshing flour in a wine press. How many of us are doing some embarrassing things far away removed from the purposes God has for us. God found Gideon in his hiding and told him it’s he who had the answer to his people’s crisis. Isreal needed a Gideon who was in hiding! What crisis might you solve if only you were you to focus your energy where it’s needed. Could it be that your family, your company, your county or your nation for that matter is suffering while you have the potential to turn things around? Kiss your fears goodbye and embrace the potential God has put within you. Trust God to accomplish his purposes in your life and to focus your gifting where it’s needed. Stop being a king in hiding!
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2Timothy 1:7 NKJV
