Becoming a disciple: A man of understanding

Scripture – Proverbs 20:5

The purpose in a man’s heart is like deep water,
    but a man of understanding will draw it out.

Observation

There is so much potential inside of people. Potential to change the world. Potential to impact others’ lives in amazing ways. This potential is often hidden. It is often buried beneath pain and fear.

Application

A man of understanding is what I desire to be. I want to be a man of understanding that is able, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to draw out the purposes and the potential inside of people.

Prayer

Father, please help me. Please coach me and guide me and teach me how to become this man of understanding. You know the desires of my heart but I ask you to implant in me only the desires that you have. Make me effective in your kingdom. I love living this adventure with you. Thanks for rescuing me out of what could have been. Help me stay close to you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
