When opportunity knocks are you ready to receive it or do you miss it?
We get presented with opportunities every day. It could be an opportunity to do a business, an opportunity to write a book, an opportunity to witness or pray with someone.
But how often do you miss opportunities?
How often has a business or book idea come to your mind but because of fear or excuses you did not pursue it? Do you know what happens when you don't pursue it? Someone else will come along and grab your opportunity they would take your place in becoming a multi millionaire.
When was the last time God lead you to pray or witness to someone and you held back? Holding back meant you missed an opportunity to help someone who needed you at the time.
Don't fall into the trap when opportunity knocks 'open the door' and take it. You don't want to live your life full of regrets. God doesn't want us to live our lives full of regrets, full of 'if only I.'
Don't fall into excuses, don't fall into the excuse of I can't do this because of my age, race, or sex. If Joyce Meyer made an excuse on her age then she would not have become the minister she is today, or if Barack Obama made the excuse of his race not to run for president then he would not have become president.
Especially don't use the recession as an excuse. I was listening to Dani Johnston's radio programme, in this programme she was interviewing some of her clients and I remember one gentlemen saying that he was 'bullet proof' to recession.
And that's how we need to think were 'bullet proof' to recession, don't be fooled there are people out there making money. As Christians we follow God's way and he has promised us prosperity. No good thing shall we lack God can make you wealthy during recession but it's up to you not to miss the opportunity.
So when it knocks get rid of fear excuses and take the prospect, follow your dream.
Together with God hard work and dedication you will make it.
