Opportunity Maker

Colossians 4:5  “Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.”

opportunitiesI am absolutely convinced that God is the greatest opportunity maker  in Heaven and on Earth. But, I am also convinced that we as believers are often blind to God’s daily opportunities. And I do mean opportunities with an S on the end.

On any given day, each of us as believers are probably confronted with at least 12 to 20 opportunities placed in our path by God. They may be chances to witness, to minister, or to simply choose a path that will cause our personal lives to excel.

But so often, we become so disconnected due to the busy hustle and personal control we must exert, that we walk past all of God’s opportunities. It doesn’t mean that you’re evil. It just means that you’re missing the abundant path God has before you.

Remember, it takes effort on your part to be aware of the Spirit’s voice. It is  a discipline to be developed over a lifetime. But that’s  all we have while here on earth, is our lifetime.

Today, open your eyes in prayer to see the opportunities along the path of your day placed there by God. Ask the Spirit to speak as you walk through your day. Then seize on the opportunities that God has laid out before you.

Live your Abundant Life.

Have a blessed day.
