God gives everyone opportunities. In life, God is going to give us the opportunity to become who He wants us to be.
Dr. Mensah Otabil teaching on Opportunities defined opportunity as a set of circumstances that make it possible to do something.
Using Ecclesiastes 9:11 as an anchor scripture, he identified two thoughts that can be inferred from Eccl. 9:11
1. Our natural abilities and professional training are not enough to guarantee success
There are stories of people with great natural abilities and professional training who somehow have not been able to put the thoughts of life together.
2. The way we respond to life’s occurrences determines our success in life.
Things happen in life, things you didn’t plan for, things you didn’t expect, things you wish didn’t happen. The way you respond to them determine how things will work out for you.
God is at work in every season of life, through trials, tragedy and triumph. God is always with us and in whatever circumstance we find ourselves. We, on the other hand must be assured that His presence is with us.
