Whose Wisdom?

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom (Proverbs 4:7). Wisdom protects us from the dangers of knowledge.

Potential is dormant ability. (The word dormant literally means "that which is, but it is just lying there below its full strength, unused.") It is also reserved power, untapped strength, and unused success. Potential is everything that a thing is, that has not yet been seen or manifested. Everything in life begins as potential. all things have the potential to fulfill themselves, because God created everything with potential. There is no fulfillment in life without understanding the reason for being. if we want to know the real potential of something, we first have to know what that thing was created to do.

So if you have a seed in your hand, kernel of corn or a pea, you will never get the seed's complete fulfillment until you know that there is a plant inside that seed. It is only as we look beyond the seed to the plant that we understand its true potential.

The same is true of our relationship with God. God created each man with a great wealth of potential. Too often, however, we look only at what we presently have. We look at our last dollar and say, "All I have is one dollar."

But God says, "No. That is not all you have. If you only knew the potential of that dollar."

And we reply, "But God you don;t understand. There's a one next to that '$' thing."

Again God says, "No. if you could just take this dollar and put it into a certain condition, it would multiply."

The potential of everything is related to its purpose for being. Before we can understand the potential of a thing or person , we first must know the conditions under which it was meant to exist. Thus the most important thing for you and me, as human beings, is to try and find out for the rest of our lives what is the purpose for everything in life. That is our main goal. Unless we ask ourselves, "What is the purpose for everything in life?" we will die without having experienced the potential of everything. We will miss the wisdom of God in creation.


  1. Awesome teaching Dr Myles, God bless u for being a gr8 blessing to so many around the world.

    1. That was great, people always say I am nosey because I like to know. I always ask the 6 questions I learned in elementary school; who, what, when, where, why, and how. I often think I waste my time, but I respect your teaching and now know that is the best thing I could do.
