It has been stated, that we should not wait for extraordinary opportunities, but rather, seize common occasions and make them great.
"Is it possible to cross the path?" asked Napoleon of the engineers who had been sent to explore the dreaded pass of St. Bernard. "Perhaps," was the hesitating reply, "it is within the limits of possibility." "Forward, then," said the Little Corporal, heeding not their account of difficulties, apparently insurmountable. Everyone laughed at the possibility of transporting across the Alps but four days later the army was marching on the plains of Italy.
Weak men wait for opportunities, strong men make them. This is so true of many missionaries on deputation. One man can not get meetings, support or a kiss from his wife. Another missionary has more meetings than he can attend, support raised in two years or less and I will leave the last part alone! Are you making excuses for your life and ministry today or are you making the most of your opportunities?
We all have the same amount of time to study, pray, call, preach, etc. What are some opportunities that you will take advantage of today?
Is that a phone beside your computer? Pick it up. Dial the number and anticipate the opportunity that awaits at the other end of the line!
