Grab The Opportunity.

The Chariot Eye
Prophet Patrick Buwemba
Ecclesiastes 9:11-12 I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn't always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn't always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don't always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time. People can never predict when hard times might come. Like fish in a net or birds in a trap, people are caught by sudden tragedy.
This shows that success is not dependent on how good you're in what you want to be but on how ready you're to take every opportunity that life provides as though your life depends on it. The bible records of a man called Philip who was taken by the spirit to an Ethiopian eunuch and Philip over heard him read the word in Isaiah. So he grabbed the opportunity and preached Jesus. Just like Philip, each one of us opportunity presents it's self to us for us to save our selves but how urgent do you grab the opportunity? Or you are one who always pushes things to tomorrow?
Every new day is an opportunity for your success. But when you miss your time, you will do things in a time and they will not be relevant. So this why it's important to seize the moments we get in life because you never know what tomorrow will bring. Your time is now, don't wait for tomorrow, take this opportunity. Why declare this year gone yet there is still time? Don't think next year will be different, it will not be different but the way you see it is what would have changed. So change your thoughts about today and embrace today with urgency.
Stop sitting back and thinking there will always be time. Chance will always appear like blind Bartimaeus, once opportunity comes that the famous healing preacher Jesus is passing by your street, scream for help irrespective of the negative energy your surrounded with. No body knows what you're going through. So it is when you get an opportunity to be in church or the presence of God or a prophet, these are rare opportunities, seize the moment once you get it.
God give us the strength to do all we have to do in the Right time. Let us not miss our time.
