The God of Opportunities!


How does God bring opportunities? The first thing to understand in answering this question is that God is the most creative being in the universe. He has created opportunities for you, more imaginative and diverse than you are capable of comprehending. If you ask Him, He will open your eyes to these opportunities. Ask Him to show you the opportunity He has for dealing with your specific financial situation. Ask in faith, and believe He loves you and that He will answer your prayer.

Often, people will find that this opportunity is something already within their grasp. Moses discovered this in a dramatic way. God told him that He was going to lead the children of Israel out of captivity in Egypt (Exodus 4:1, 2). Moses had a lot of questions about his ability to perform such a task, and said to the Lord: “They will not believe me or listen to my voice, for they will say ‘The Lord did not appear to you.’” The Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?” “A rod.”

The Lord told Moses to throw his rod on the ground and when he did, it became a serpent. Then he picked it up and it became a rod again. That rod became the symbol of God’s power and authority that rested with Moses. It was a simple, common thing, used everyday without a second thought. But God used it in bringing the children of Israel out from Egypt!

I believe the opportunity that will get you out of your Egypt is in your hand, within your grasp. Through utilizing it and using it wisely, you will be able to free yourself. Remember, the secret to your future is hidden in your daily routine. Practice something daily! Creative opportunities originate with God, and usually they are simple things. God has created us all with a certain amount of creativity! Use it!
