Seize the opportunity He lays before you!
“The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” Proverbs 10:22
One day my husband shared with me how he has missed so many opportunities in his life. These opportunities would have set us up to be wealthy and a great blessing to others. While he was standing there talking to me, I saw a man who felt disappointed in himself that he missed it.
Maybe you are in a similar situation. You see all of the needs around you and you want to be able to help and bless others in a great way, but you are limited in resources. You think to yourself, “If only I had seized that opportunity, taken that job offer, accepted that contract, received that house, bought that property. If only I had enough sense to see the opportunity that was laying right in front of me and grab hold of it.”
We all miss it sometimes. The important thing to remember is that God loves us and He is good. He is faithful and He will bring more opportunities before you, specially designed to bless you and make you a blessing. The key is to not miss what He has for you today because you’re regretting what you missed yesterday.
Prayer: Father God, I thank you for your love and encouragement. I have missed so many opportunities in my life and I feel disappointed in myself. Help me Lord to see what you want me to see. Help me to hear what you want me to hear. Help me to seize the opportunities you lay before me. Help me discern what is from you and what opportunities are sent from the enemy. Bless me Lord and make me a blessing! In the name of Jesus, Amen.
