I sinrecerly appreciate the Almighty God for mighty testimonies and encouraging feedbacks I received from different brethren as a result of the part 1 of this series.
May the name of the Lord be glorified forever in Jesus name.
Let me continue from where we stop last time.
Remember, we are still discussing – STRUCTURING YOUR LIFE FOR MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES
WHAT IS AN OPPORTUNITY?
21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: Dan.
This means that there is God’s hand in whatever you’re going through in life to work things out for your good.
I pray that God will control things to favour your destiny in the name of Jesus.
God is the only one that can lift a man or give man a comfortable life. So, whatever you have or whoever you are or you are becoming is just a process, leading you to a better destination. So, don’t feel too comfortable or develop a sense of arrival. It is just an OPPORTUNITY.
11 ¶ I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. 1Sa 6:9; Jer 9:23; Am 2:14-15 ECCL 9:11
(1 I returned and saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong, neither is bread to the wise nor riches to men of intelligence and understanding nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all. [Ps. 33:16-19; Rom. 9:16.] Amp)
Firstly, To have opportunity is to have favourable time and chances. To experience divine input upon your life, to encounter an uncommon results in all your doings and ways.
Although been swift, skillful and the likes does not guarantee success in the race of life, but it is one of the platform that God uses to give success to His children. It was Joseph’s ability to interprets dream that God used as an opportunity to take him to the palace (Gen.41:12-14).
Likewise David, it was his skillfulness in playing harp that God used to secure a place for him at the palace;
17 And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a man that can play well, and bring him to me. 18 Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the LORD is with him 21 And David came to Saul, and stood before him: and he loved him greatly; and he became his armourbearer. 22 And Saul sent to Jesse, saying, Let David, I pray thee, stand before me; for he hath found favour in my sight1 Sam.16:17-18,21,22
That is the summary of what qualified David for the opportunity to live with the king at the palace.
Beloved, It is the combinations of your walk with God and your secret works (preparation) on earth that determine your worth on earth. A wise man once said that “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
Atimes, we look at some people as been lucky but what we don’t know is that there is a preparation behind their being lucky. Opportunities may come your way, but if you are not well prepared to capitalize on them, they will mean nothing.
That was why Solomon said hapeneth to them all.
There are certain things that must be in place in your life before time and chance can manifest in your favour. The kind and quality of opportunities God will make available for you depend on certain qualities in your life.
he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; 8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.Rev.3:7b-8
As we can see, God did not just set an open door to them for fun but because of certain qualities in their life, which are
1. Hardwork – their works
2. Maximize their ability
though, they have little strength but they maximize it to do the needful
3. Their commitment to God’s word
4. Their uncompromising lifestyle.
Those are some of the things that attracted divine open doors to their life. This is a serious and critical moment for unusual transformations in your life because you are about to find out, those things that will make your life attractive to unusual opportunities through this series…
