5-Minute Friday: Opportunity


Opportunity: Prophetic, future potential, seed to be nurtured.

An opportunity can come in front of us as an idea, a thought, and yes, a nudging by the Holy Spirit. A seed that is waiting for the soil to be turned & set as a protective cover, for it to continue to incubate till it grows.

It is prophetic as opportunity speaks of a future possibility, a state of being which is much desired. Inundated with the leading of the loving Abba, an avenue by which our own or another’s future can take a corner-turn.

With the shedding of the old eye wax, accumulated by 6 months of tearful recovery, there are so many opportunities which are suddenly presented in front of me. Were the opportunities never there before? They have been, for quite a while. Business opportunities on land owned by relatives, mum’s business acumen, possibility of eco-tourism right in the birthplace of my roots.

These days, spiritual spa is no longer about healing the heart, but a widening & stretching of my sight. For opportunities that have been placed by the all-knowing Abba, my Jehovah Jireh.

“If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.” – Matthew 6:25-26 (MSG)

Matthew 6:33 MSG
Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

Matthew 6:34 MSG
Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

Opportunity also requires us to be present in the present hour, not in shackled in the past, nor dabbling in the murky uncertainty of the future. Those parts of the timeline belongs to Abba. As we lock our eyes in what He wants us to do now, our past is released & redeemed, and our future is charted on solid routes by the Creator of the Universe.
