How to Reach Your Full Potential for God - book review
In How to Reach Your Full Potential for God, acclaimed pastor and speaker Charles Stanley connects readers with the plan and purpose God envisioned when He created them.
"Things are never going to change" or "This is just the way I am--I'm never going to get better" are just a few of the damaging lies Christians believe about themselves, their situations, and their walk. But Dr. Stanley shares the real truth as God sees it.
In this powerful and inspiring message, readers reconnect with the grand vision God had when He uniquely created them. They learn that regardless of setbacks, failures, and frustrations, there is a better path based in His Word, one that's full of freedom and purpose. This book takes them to their specifically designed path to become exactly who the Father made them to be and achieve exactly what He designed them for.
I really enjoyed reading this very informative book by Charles Stanley. No matter how long a person has been following Christ, there are always areas that we can improve in. People question all the time what purpose they have in life or they don't understand why they are not hearing from God on certain areas. Charles Stanley gives great pointers by outlining seven essentials to living the life God desires for us. Among these essentials is: having a clean heart (this chapter is a real eye opener for those that "thought" they were clean), a clear mind (what are you thinking about? It is not always about what you do but how you think.), using your gifts, a healthy body (your body is a temple of God so why would we not take better care of it?), right relationships (Is there someone in your life that you need to break ties with?), a balanced schedule, and taking God-approved risks. He outlines just how we can improve in all of these areas of our lives. Anyone that reads this book with an open heart and an open mind, can and will learn something.
