Today’s devotional is teaching us about opportunity. Just as David fought Goliath or even the Lion to protect the sheep, these could appear to some as trials in his life. However they were an opportunity for God to show His power, and protection over his chosen King. There are many of us who deal with health issues, or financial problems in our every day life. We have to see this is an opportunity for God to work in our life, and let others see that it was God alone who could have fixed this problem. A miracle from our Father is the only way that our body could be healed. That we were given the things necessary for our life, by gifts that God gave us through those He worked through. Anything that we might see as a detrimental problem and no possible way to fix, in our circumstances, God sees it as an opportunity to show the world He is real and still working in lives today. When things are hard, don’t focus on how ruined your life is, or the freedoms you have lost, force yourself to see it as an opportunity for you to learn about God. If you are unable to work anymore, it is an opportunity for you to find something new that you can do to bring glory to God. We have a clean slate with a fresh start, just as when we found salvation through Christ. This is a turning point, where we stop our old life of sin, and become a new person. Turning away from our old ways of doing wrong and living for what this world has to offer, like money and possessions. Beginning a life where everything you have of importance is in Heaven. Can you really walk away from the physical things this world has to offer? Can you give those things up, because you know God has more than you can imagine waiting for you in Heaven? You are putting down the physical gifts of this world, like Money and power, because you know you can trust God for your eternity. We have an opportunity in front of us and a choice, what will yours be?
