Dr. Mensah Otabil teaching on taking hold of Opportunities

In life, God is going to give us the opportunity to become what He wants us to be. He will give us the opportunity to learn the lessons He wants us to learn and to meet the people who will link us into our destiny
One of the important things to take a hold of in life is opportunity.
What then is Opportunity?
Opportunity is a set of circumstances that make it possible to do something.
A person will not only have one opportunity in life, probably in a day a person will have a thousand and the way we access opportunities will determine the outcomes of our life.
Eccl 9:11 says “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.”
NOTE: Opportunity is a situation in life you don’t control.
1. Our natural abilities and professional training are not enough to guarantee success.
There are stories of people with great natural abilities and great natural abilities and great professional training
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 these things will determine how things will work out for you.
God is at work in in every season of our life, through trials, tragedy, triumph, God is always with us. In whatever circumstances we find ourselves, we must be assured that His presence is with us.
