How to Keep from Being Your Own Worst Enemy (21 of 28)
Series: Success: What Is It and How Can I Have It (Joshua)
Dr. Chuck McAlister
Joshua 16 and 17


(A) There are 3 persons in your seat (why it is so crowded):
1- The person you are now - at this moment!
2- The person you could be for evil -
a- There is no sin that you are not capable of committing if you take your eyes off Jesus - even though you’re a Christian.
b- The Bible says - Jeremiah 17:9 ‘‘The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?’’
c- If you cease to abide in Jesus - even tough you’re born again - you’d be amazed at the potential for evil that lurks in your own heart.
d- That person who is capable of all that evil is seated in your seat.
3- The person you could be for God -
a- The love you could show .... the things you could achieve for Jesus!
b- You have not even imagined what you could do for God!
c- Or how good life could be - you could be getting the very best out of life.
- I want to talk to that third person - the person you could be for God!
- Reaching your potential .... living up to your capacity and beyond!
- Being all that God wants you to be - all you can be.

(B) Two tribes .... Manasseh and Ephraim (tribes) .... descendants of Joseph’s sons were given their inheritance!
- Chapter 16 and 17 dedicated to the description of their inheritance.
- But they failed to reach their potential.
- Missed getting the best out of life.
- It wasn’t stolen from them - they gave it up.
- They were their own worst enemy!
- Draw from their example .... see how we can keep from being our own worst enemy.
- And how we can get the very best out of life!


(A) They became their own worst enemy and missed God’s best for them .... because they didn’t consider the potential of all that God had given them.
1- Vs. 12-13 .... Couldn’t achieve their potential because they were keeping company with Cana ...
