I search again and again for opportunities. I love opportunities. When they come, they are usually connected with challenges and as it seems at the time, difficulties and stress.
Sunday evening, I got on TV a movie where the main subject is God’s calling at a man’s life, presented in a very comic way but saying a lot. At some point God said: ” when somebody for example asks God to make him patient , does God make him patient or He gives him the opportunity to become patient?”
I just loved what I heard! I do recognize that there are moments that the Lord acts fast, bringing changes instantly. However, this is not the common happening. What He usually does, is to bring opportunities and allow us to choose to use the opportunity for change and growth. It is a democratic process. I can’t imagine how I would have been if everything was ready for me. I would have remained a “baby”. No growth at all. I would have been a spoilt child. Have you seen spoilt kids?
I would not have the sense of achievement and fulfilment.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
When opportunities appear, they might take you to a table full of rich, healthy and tasty “food”. Check first whether the opportunity is sent from God and if yes, grasp it!
