Potential


It Is Written, Genesis 11:6, and the Lord said, indeed, the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do;  now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
As you probably know, this part of Genesis is about the tower of Babel. God knew that people had unlimited imagination and potential, and that would produce good or bad results.
The brain of man can conjure up all sorts of good or evil.  Sometimes man tries to be God, and by his pride, he is God to himself.  Even something good can be carried to an extreme that can end up doing more harm than good.
God saw that if man connected with Him, and His intelligence and wisdom , it would get to the point, that it would create more blessings for man.  Man would tap in to God's wisdom, and power and be unstoppable, yet still connected to God.
God also saw that if man connected himself with satan, the opposite would be true.  With man's fertile imagination and character flaws, connected with satan's wisdom of evil, the resulting horror would be unspeakable. Since man's basic nature leads to pleasure of all sorts at any cost, it would surely be a lethal combination.
So as you see, you have potential that can have no boundaries, but you have to be wise about who you join up with, God or satan.  I believe most people are inbetween both possibilities.  If you think all of this is totally impossible or ridiculous ask yourself one question, how many times have you heard someone say so-and-so is so successful he must've sold his soul to the devil, or so-and-so is so successful because God is taking care of him.  Stretch your imagination a little.  Where do you stand?  Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
 Amen
