(The following is a transcript of a declaration made by graduating senior, Judah Morgan at the One21 Summer Experience. His declaration was made on behalf of his generation.)
I declare that I will stop limiting my own potential. Instead I will allow myself to be used by God. In james 5:17 it says “Elijah was as human as we are” Elijah? The man who called down fire from heaven? The man who stopped the rain for 3 and a half years? The man who outran a chariot? How could he be “As we are”? But really Elijah wasn’t the one who did any of that. God was. Elijah just allowed God to work through him. I have struggled with separating myself from these great men of faith in the bible. I would say to myself “I could never be like that. I could never do something like that.” But I dont have to. Its God who is doing it. I just have to surrender to him. I just have to let him use me. And the possibilities are endless. Maybe you have struggled with this too. If so, join me as I declare that I will stop limiting what I can do, say, or be with God leading me. Join me, as I declare that I will allow God to use me to build his Kingdom.
