HELLO FRIENDS, this is RESPONSIBILITY CAMPAIGN, and I am your responsibility coach D. J. Goodman. I want to share with you the POWER OF OPPORTUNITY.
There was one time God told me something about opportunity that: Everything in Life Rises and Fall on Opportunity. Before I continue, let me show you something from the Scriptures. Ecclesiastes 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 favor to men of skill; but
time and chance happeneth to them all.
That is Ecclesiastes 9.11. If you are married as you are watching me, you met your spouse through the Power of Opportunity; God gave you the chance to meet your spouse. I’m talking about godly chance, I’m not talking about ungodly opportunity.
If you have everything working for you: if you are educated, the reason why you are educated is because you did not misuse the opportunity to be educated. By the same token, there are certain things you don’t have in your life today or certain regrets that you have; I want to tell you the reason why such regrets are there is because, you misused certain opportunities in the past!
I want to teach you how never to misuse the opportunities that come your way, because everything in life rises and fall on opportunity.
The secret behind promotion is to use your opportunity well. If you pray, God answers that prayer by giving you opportunities, and if you can recognize the opportunities, you keep being promoted in life. But if you fail to recognize opportunities, it looks like things are stagnant; it looks like God is partial; it looks like some people are luckier than you. But let me tell you something: Everything in life Rises and Fall on Opportunity.
Let me stop here today, but I want to challenge you before I go; and that is what I call the RESPONSIBILITY CHALLENGE. I want to challenge you by asking: how well have you used the opportunities that God has given you? The opportunity to be educated, the opportunity to get trained in your profession or your career; the opportunity to get a life partner; the opportunity to invest money and multiply it; how well have you used the opportunity or how have you passed up the opportunity or wasted it?
That’s my challenge for you today. Till I come your way next time, I am still D. J. Goodman, your responsibility coach and I challenge you BE RESPONSIBLE!
