Inspiration

The Right Conditions
By Victoria Osteen - Sep 04, 2015

It's amazing how empowering it is when someone has confidence in you. We all have times when we may not necessarily have confidence in ourselves; but somehow, we can draw strength from the people around us that believe in us. That's why it's so important to surround yourself with the right people. When you position yourself in quality places with quality people, it will bring out your strengths and help you become all that God created you to be.

When God created you, He deposited His seeds of success inside of you. Have you ever stopped to think about how a seed works? A seed is actually dormant until it is placed in the right conditions. You can own seeds for every kind of tree, plant and flower, but as long as they are in the packages, tucked away in a drawer somewhere, nothing will ever happen. Those seeds are full of tremendous potential just waiting for the right environment. At any time, you can take those same seeds and plant them in the right soil, give them the water and nutrients they need, and those very seeds that were once dormant will begin to grow and produce. The same is true for the seeds on the inside of you! Those seeds of greatness may have been lying dormant for a long time, but you are still full of tremendous potential. It's time to change your environment so that those seeds can grow and produce the harvest for which they were intended.

Today, take some time to evaluate your life. Are you surrounded by the right people? Are you around people who will bring you up instead of dragging you down? Are you feeding your heart and mind with the Word of God daily? Make sure you have the right conditions around you to feed, inspire and grow the dreams and potential inside of you!

"Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times." (Mark 4:8, NIV)
