Some see this blank page and they see someone who has writer’s block or an artist who doesn’t know what to sketch or draw. But others see possibility. A clean slate. A writer or artist has all the possibility in the world. A blank canvas is full of possibilities. They can be as creative as they want to be. They can write anything or draw anything they want.
Maybe you aren’t an artist or a writer but you have an opportunity to do all kinds of things. You are full of potential. You could do great things or you could do bad things.
I am human and know that while I have potential to do good many times I fall short of doing good. We fall short of good. This shouldn’t be a surprise to us because we can look at our lives and see that we fall short in certain areas. The Apostle Paul says, “No one is righteous not even one.”
So in many ways we may feel like a writer with writer’s block. We are unable to do good and not much is possible. Or maybe the only thing that is possible is to produce something that is bad. And since Paul says, in his letter to the churches in Rome, no one is righteous, the possibility of producing bad is certain. Yet those who have placed their trust in Jesus are made right with God. They have been made righteous (2 Corinthians 5:21). This opens up for us the possibility of good. We can do great things. Paul says this in his 2 letter to the church in Thessalonica:
May he (God) give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. 2 Thessalonians 2:11
Paul says that God gives us power to do good things. Before our possibility was for bad, but now our possibility is for good. Paul also says something so amazing. He says we are actually prompted to do good. Our faith prompts us.
You have the possibility to do good because God will give you the power to do it
What is your faith prompting you to do? You have a clean slate, if you have placed your trust in Jesus. You have a blank canvas. You have so many possibilities for good. God will give you the power to do good things for His glory and praise.
Thanks for reading.
