Psalm 138:8 The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands
I often wonder if I have let doors of opportunity pass me by?
This came to mind recently because I had a vision of myself being on a video talking about God, a few years ago. The vision I saw looked like the Church I was attending, where they do videos on peoples lives and how God changed their lives. I was asked to do one about a year later but it never happened.
Recently I was asked to participate in a video/commercial for a ministry that I volunteer with. I did that today. I remembered the vision I had and wondered if the Church missed an opportunity to speak to other people who have experienced the same things I have and needed hope in those areas.
If the Church did miss that opportunity, God still fulfilled this piece of my purpose, just through a different avenue.
Will God still help the people who could have heard my testimony? Yes, of course, just through different avenues.
This makes me think once again about the times I have passed something up due to fear or my sin getting in the way.
I believe God opens many doors to give us the desires of our hearts, and when we are strong enough we will walk through them, but what could you have passed up by not moving forward faster? How could your life be different now instead of later?
This experience has brought more hope to me, that I will become what God has shown me I can be and no matter how long I may take, He is patiently waiting for me to get on board and trust Him.
Most of all, it has made me want to push through faster and take the bull by the horns, so that I don’t miss out on one opportunity He brings my way.
He is renewing my visions and the Hope that they to will be fulfilled, no matter how weak I may feel at times, it’s about Him and His strength, not mine. I just have to take the steps to walk through those doors.
