Topic: Make Sense On Time
[Seeds of Destiny 1 August 2019 Devotional]
Beloved, opportunity is universal, but success is not universal. So, every time you have the stage, make sense on time because the stage is not yours forever.
SCRIPTURE: To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Every time you have the stage, make sense on time because the stage is not yours forever.
Opportunity, according to Oxford Dictionary is a time or a set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something. Effective management of opportunities is very critical to success in life and destiny. How people end up in life is determined by how they manage the opportunities of their lives.
When I was in the Medical School, I was made the president of the Christian Medical Students Fellowship of my university. There was a time we went for the Christian Medical Students National Conference at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. People from different universities across the country gathered and some persons were appointed to anchor different items on the program schedule, and by privilege, I was appointed to lead a five-minute segment of prayer. And within those five minutes, there was an eruption. The impact was both tangible and undeniable.
So when it was time to elect the national president, they almost unanimously pointed to the direction of the man who brought fire in five minutes; they made me the national president of the fellowship. Thus I became national president, travelled across the country, preaching to medical students, and that experience was very foundational for my life and ministry.
Beloved, opportunity is universal, but success is not universal. So, every time you have the stage, make sense on time because the stage is not yours forever; there are others queuing up to make sense. To be an opportunity waster is to be a destiny waster.
Remember this: Every time you have the stage, make sense on time because the stage is not yours forever.
1.Have a mentality of making impact anywhere you go; refuse to be insignificant.
2.Seize the moment; utilize every opportunity you have, and if you feel there is no opportunity, create one.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to maximize every opportunity I have in life. Help me never to be an opportunity waster, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
