“…make good use of every opportunity you have…” Ephesians 5:16 (GNT)

One thing I have come to love so much about God is that He loads us with benefits on a regular basis (Psalms 68:19) and one of those benefits He brings into our lives are opportunities. God loves to give us opportunities again and again but I discovered that for every opportunity that He brings to us, He does not help us utilize it or increase it because that is our responsibility. Sadly, what happens today, is that many of God’s people want God to give them opportunities and also utilize it for them, which is why so many people have had wonderful opportunities to do certain things or go to the next level of their lives but they are still were they are before the opportunity came. Why? Because they want God to do everything for them. Beloved that will never happen. I want to encourage you today to learn to watch out for the opportunities that God has brought your way and maximize them. Inside every opportunity comes many other opportunities but you need to pay attention to the opportunity you have so that you see the others that are hidden within it. Every opportunity God brings your way has the potential to turn into something big, but if that will happen, you have to play your role well. Stop waiting for God to do something more in your life. The more you require, is engrafted in the little you have now. Put that little to work, and watch more come out of that little, for there is more in every little that comes your way. This is what farmers have come to understand that makes them to keep getting a harvest every year because they have come to understand the potentials of their seedlings.
The sufferings and struggles you see in the lives of many people today is not because God has abandoned them or didn’t give them an opportunity but because the opportunity that was given to them was never maximized, so they remained in the same issues for a long time. I have come in contact with people who have made a lot of money in their lives but guess what, they are still poor, haggard and suffering, not because God wasn’t faithful, but because the financial blessings God brought into their lives were not maximized. I tell you, this is the worst thing that can ever happen to anybody but sadly too many people are living like this in their lives. However, your case should be different. So make a conscious decision today, to maximize your opportunities. Pray to God about it and let Him minister to you on the right steps to take to unlock the opportunities within the opportunity you have right now and I promise you, your life will never remain the same. Paul the apostle had this revelation and in his writings, he said, “be careful how you live. Don’t live like ignorant people, but like wise people. Make good use of every opportunity you have…” Ephesians 5:15-16 GNT) so take heed and do the needful. Praise God!


Inside every opportunity comes many other opportunities!


Thank you father for the opportunities you have brought my way so far, I declare that henceforth, I will not allow any opportunity to slip by. I will harness it and maximize every bit of it because this is the will of God for my life. Halleluiah !
