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. I encouraged him, I know you feel disappointed, but let’s not miss the opportunities God gives us today because we’re looking at the ones we missed yesterday.

My sister, 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.”

Th truth is, 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 many opportunities in my life and I feel disappointed with myself. I forgive myself and ask that you help me, Father, 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 today. Help me discern what is from you and what opportunities are sent from the enemy. Bless me and make me a great blessing! In the name of Jesus, Amen.

  1. I just want to shout out how amazing God is! I needed this today! He blessed you sister Keisha with the perfect words right on time words to bless myself and others today. Hallelujah He lives! I needed a word and He answered! Praise God. God bless you sister! Much love and blessing upon you and your family in Jesus name!

  2. I was reflecting on missed opportunities and spoke with a friend regarding this topic and it yields to the vein if we reside in the regrets of yesterday, we miss the presents/presence of today, and forfeit the hopes of tomorrow!!!
    Glory onto GOD! May we remain in proper posture Abba that we do not miss you or that which you have for us!!!🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

  3. Thank You, Father, for helping me to look at the opportunities I have missed that I felt disappointed, that it wasn’t my due season at that time. Father, to wait on Your perfect timing discerning Your perfect will for my life. Father, learning that I was made to give You glory in everything I do being an instrument in You great plan of me to make the difference You want me to make in the earth, that You will be glorified!!! *Learning to: Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established. Proverbs 16:3.
    Trusting His timing because He never fails! Sister Kesha, as you have shared with us that He will not dangle a carrot in front of our face only not to be able to get it. That’s why I thank Him for His new mercies daily that He gives to us. He will not bring us to it, just not to bring us through it. Indeed, it’s His blessings that makes us rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.🙌🙌🙌
    It’s Him that gives the increase in our lives, by the supply of His riches and glory. That as our Father blesses us we will not sorrow when He brings us the overflow. Father, continue to grow us that we will be able to be trusted with the overflow, to be a good steward over whatever You give that You will be glorified by our lives. That we will keep our eyes on You, being The Author and Finisher of our faith. Remembering Ecclesiastes 9:11(KJV).

  4. This devotional speaks volumes as I have missed many opportunities as well. Looking back is not an option as I seek to fulfill the good work of the Lord in the land of the living. Becoming a Christian as an adult, I now know that some of the opportunities may have hindered me from knowing the Lord. I am grateful that the Lord timing is everything.. God knows our needs. Delayed but not denied. I really appreciate this devotional. Blessings, Shalom and Agape. 👀🙏🏽📖❤🙏🏽

  5. This blessed me so greatly… there was an opportunity I had to purchase a home and I didn’t seize the opportunity. I condemned myself for a while although I know God is faithful. I finally shared the missed moment with my daughters. But I see I also need to tell them that the missed moments aren’t the end and that there are still opportunities to lay ahold of right in front of us. Thank you for this encouraging word sis!❤️🙏🏾
