If our lives are going to be meaningful and rewarding we will have to give some thought to what doors God has opened for us that present opportunities planned specifically for us. If you find yourself in a situation that is unexplainable and you know that there is no way you got there on your own, just know that God has supernaturally made a way for you to achieve something incredible.
You must give some thought as to the best way to make the most of the opportunities that are available to you. In Ephesians 2:10 the Bible says, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Pay attention to the words “which God prepared in advance.” Those words are significant because it clearly means that God has a plan for your life and that plan was put in place while you were still in your mother’s womb and it has not changed. God already knows the opportunities He is presenting to you. He’s made all the preparations for it to happen and everything that has happened to you up to now has prepared you as well. Ephesians 5:16 “…making the most of every opportunity…”When opportunity knocks, don’t let those occasions pass you by. Seize the opportunities that God has planned for you. Don’t allow another day go by without acting on what you know in your heart to be true – that God wants you to be happy, successful and effective in what He has called you to do.
To make the most of opportunities that come to you, you must know and understand what God’s will is for your life. Think about it and if you don’t know ask Him. Pray that God will open your eyes so that you are able to see the hand of God at work. Ask God to let you see the big picture of His purposes and then understand how your immediate circumstances fit into His plan. Trust me when I say that God is working all things together for your good. I believe that He is orchestrating events and circumstances to build your faith in Him and at the same time conforming you to the image of Christ.
Do not be afraid of the open door in front of you. Yes, you will be challenged, there is no doubt about that but you can count on God to provide everything you need to go where you have never gone before. Take my advice and do not fear the problems, but focus on the opportunities while they are there. Seeing an opportunity from your rear view mirror is not good. Take a step of faith today and walk by faith and not by sight. Put your hand in the hands of the God who holds your future because He, and He alone, knows where you are going.
