Potential (Day 5 of 7) from YouVersion, read by Andi and Brian Hale
Not quite enough, or is it?
Insecurity is something all of us deal with in some way or another. We all look around at other people, and at times, feel like we don’t measure up.
But here’s what you need to know:
You have everything you need to do what God needs you to do.
And here’s the lesson we can learn from the Bible story today: life’s not about what you have; it’s about what you let God have.
God will use whoever you are and whatever you have to do what He wants to do. He wants to use you. So, what do you have that God can use?
Where do you feel less than? Know that God can and will use that too.
What do you need to let God have? What do you need God to multiply in your life?
Let God have it all. Just watch and see what happens when you give it over to Him.

He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he would do. ‘
