When opportunity knocks at your door what do you do?

Only a few will see the vision or assignment God gave you. Not all but those few will build it with you. Don’t you know the Gideon story in the bible? God did it with 300men from a 22000 men army. That means if the team you had in mind was of 10 people, it’s possible to do it with only 3. Or maybe let’s say you needed a team of 50, Maybe only 10 will actually do more than those 50. Because not everyone was suitable for the job at hand. Only a few.

Judge 7:4-8 says, And the Lord said to Gideon, “The people are still too many. Take them down to the water, and I will test them for you there, and any one of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall go with you,’ shall go with you, and any one of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ shall not go.” So he brought the people down to the water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “Everyone who laps the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set by himself. Likewise, everyone who kneels down to drink.” And the number of those who lapped, putting their hands to their mouths, was 300 men, but all the rest of the people knelt down to drink water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “With the 300 men who lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hand, and let all the others go every man to his home.” So the people took provisions in their hands and their trumpets. And he sent all the rest of Israel every man to his tent but retained the 300 men. And the camp of Midian was below him in the valley.”

Do you believe in the power of God? When it comes to what God wants to do it’s not about the large numbers at times but those few who are suitable and willing to do the work.

When you get an opportunity to start off with someone’s vision, pray about it, get God’s mind on it, and when you have a clear go-ahead, don’t miss it.

Someone once said, if you get offered to do a great job and you don’t know how to do it, say yes to the offer. Then go learn how to do it afterward.

There was a reason they said this. It’s not everything that will come your way that you will be ready and up for. But sure enough, if you believe. God will back you up.

What opportunities have you missed? Start looking at it from God’s eyes, an opportunity for something great came and you missed it last time. This time don’t miss it again.
