Publisher's Summary

Things are never going to change, or "This is just the way I am - I'm never going to get better", are just a few of the damaging lies Christians believe about themselves, their situations, and their walk. But Dr. Stanley shares the real truth as God sees it.
With this powerful and inspiring message, listeners will reconnect with the grand vision God had when He uniquely created them. They will learn that regardless of setbacks, failures, and frustrations, there is a better path based in His Word, one that's full of freedom and purpose. This book takes them to their specifically designed paths to become exactly who the Father made them to be and achieve exactly what He designed them for.

One of the best books around for this topic

Dr. Stanley gives a very broad-spectrum approach to reaching your full potential as a Christian. He addresses time, resource, and health management, he gives clear and simple advice about ways to control influences and thought patterns, and he makes the point very plainly that God is to be center of your every decision, but he doesn't leave you alone to figure out God's will by yourself. He gives concrete examples of how to pray for guidance in making decisions.

A lot of the book is about trusting God - trusting that He will make his plans known to you if you ask Him before making your own plans, trusting that God is good and that He has your best interests in mind, trusting that God is capable of bringing about His purposes through you no matter what you think you are or are not good at, and trusting that He will always be there whether you succeed or fail. Dr. Stanley uses examples of Biblical characters and how they dealt with trust issues, decisions, and stress.

For me, this book really brought home the importance of prayer BEFORE making decisions. It also illuminated for me just how important one decision can be and therefore, how important it is to bring ALL decisions in prayer to God.

I would encourage anyone who is feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by life to read this book. I am not suggesting that your life will be completely fixed in ten minutes after reading it, but I know that mine has already improved because I have read it. Dr. Stanley offers a great deal of encouragement and practical advice that would be of great help to any believer.

Should be read by Dr. Stanley only

What disappointed you about How to Reach Your Full Potential for God?

The annoying narrator

If you’ve listened to books by Charles F. Stanley before, how does this one compare?


What didn’t you like about Arthur Morey’s performance?

I think i was actually expecting Charles Stanley's wonderful voice to read his book, my mistake

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
