Hide not your face from me.
Turn not your servant away in anger,
O you who have been my help.
Cast me not off; forsake me not,
xO God of my salvation!
Psalm 27:9, ESV
His promise is that when we go, he goes with us. He will never call us to do a task without giving us what we need to do it. He is unshakably committed to meeting the needs of his people. He is unshakably committed to the success of his kingdom. Since you are his child, wherever you go, his presence and power go as well. He really is with you always, and he really is the helper that you need.
So how are you measuring your potential? Are there places where you are living more in fear and avoidance than with courage and hope? Are there places where you feel completely overwhelmed? Could it be that as you have assessed your potential you have forgotten who your helper is? You are now personally connected to the ultimate source of help. How’s that for potential?
