"If we want to reach our kingdom potential, living in such a way that God can do mighty works in and through us, then it’s essential that we not shy away from the areas in which we need to improve" Dr. Denison in 'To Follow His Footsteps"
I don't think I have to ask myself do I want God to do mighty works in my life. I have to ask myself why I continue to make it hard on God to use me, by living short of his desire for my life.
I have never had trouble recognizing shortcomings that need work, but I have at time taken shortcuts in order to resolve them in a manner God would like. What I have found is that when you take shortcuts you get less than the best results. Praying God keeps revealing to me where I need to be more like him. I know I will always need work.
