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

Having established the need to recognize and utilizing our opportunities, it is important to understand that the number of 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 ended 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 suffering and struggling, not because God wasn’t faithful, but because the financial blessings God brought into their lives was 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 today. In most cases, they get angry with God, thinking He is the reason for their struggling, unknown to them that they are the ones who misused their opportunities. However, God is telling me to tell you, that by reason of this encounter, you shall not miss your opportunities or misuse them again in the name of Jesus. Your case shall be different, but you must 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 likewise 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 my sight. I will harness it and maximize every bit of it because this is the will of God for my life. Hallelujah!
