And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. – Deuteronomy 8:18
Have you ever taken time to ask yourself why did I used to ask God WHY? We sometimes ask God the question why? Why this and why that! Why did that opportunity pass me by? Have you also paused to think “What do I think the reply of God would be if I could clearly hear Him?” We can speculate and say that He might ask you “Why asking me why?” or “Why do you choose to do it your way?”
The life you live is constructed by you. We always think it is God’s time. The Bible says there is a time a season for everything (Eccl. 3:1). Do you actually think that it would take God all this time for us to achieve this or that thing? God keeps training us gradually till He then presents us with an opportunity to see if we can recognise it as opportunity and take it. It might be small but…. it is still an opportunity.
We normally arrogantly allow the fish to pass and when the big ones finish passing we cry foul. Either we are looking for a bigger thing and the smaller ones we could use for foundation passed us by or we are looking for smaller things only and the big one we have now passes us by.
Barriers to opportunity
The younger generations today do not want to listen to the advice of the older ones just as we did not listen to our older ones. The question is who are we that the younger ones should look on to us? So the question in those days was who were those older ones that we could look on to them?
There is something inside you that your child is looking onto and if that thing is better, they think is on the streets, than in you they go to the street for it. The parent is the biggest and the best role model for the child (Prov. 22:6).
