Look For Opportunity

“Pray for us, too, that God will give us many opportunities to speak
about his mysterious plan concerning Christ. That is why I am here in
chains” (Colossians 4:3, NLT).

Paul was writing these words while he was in chains in prison. He was
arrested for preaching the gospel. Everything in his surroundings
shouted “limitations, ” but instead of looking at his surroundings,
Paul kept his eyes on the limitless God. He kept looking for the open
door of opportunity that God would have for him next.

No matter what “chains” you may feel like you are in today, remember,
we serve a God who’s in the business of setting people free. Remember, He has equipped you with His power. He’s promised to walk
with you all the days of your life. When doors look closed all around
you, when your surroundings look limited, when you feel like you’re
in chains, remember, God is still at work in your life.

Like Paul, keep your hopes up. Keep expecting. Keep believing. Pray
for those opportunities to be opened to you. If you fall, get right
back up and press forward with even greater determination to
accomplish the dream that God has planted in your heart. The prayer
of the righteous avails much, so keep praying because He promises to
break the chains and open doors of opportunity in your life.

A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, I choose to take my eyes off my surroundings and
focus on You. I choose to focus on the passion and dream You’ve
planted in my heart. I trust that You are working behind the scenes,
opening doors of opportunity. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
