Many years ago I was invited to attend an International Pastor and Leaders Annual Conference. As one of the young ministers coming from afar, I was given 10 minutes to share a devotional thought after the prayer session. I realised the significance of the moment when it dawned on me that most of these saints in attendance would be ten, twenty years my seniors in the ministry with greater experience, connections, results and anointing. In preparation, I suddenly realised this was an opportunity of a life time. Those fifteen minutes would not only set up a lifetime of ministry but propel me to next level. So in preparation I had to maximise those fifteen minutes. It took me a month to prepare a ten minute devotional. Each minute was not only accounted for but dedicated to something specific. While not packing in too much, I also had to conclude in 10 minutes. I had to maximise the moment. It’s been over fifteen years since that day but I can still see the results of that maximised moment.
God is granting you opportunities in the various seasons of life you are going through. The people you meet, the places you visit and the things you do are all giving you access to certain things and opportunities you must understand and embrace. There is no shortage of opportunities but of men and women who make the most of every opportunity. God is granting you outstanding moments for you to shine forth and rise above the tide. The obstacles and challenges are making room for you to let your talents through and shine. It is not in the size of the stage but rather in the size of your heart. Even the smallest of moments can mean a life time of change in the right hands.
Each day you are alive is a moment granted by God that you should do something of significance. Instead of waiting on the sideline for your name to be called up, you need to start working and getting things going wherever you. God is working in your life whether you are on the stage or behind the curtain. You have an opportunity to get things going that will set you up for greater things in life. Every season is granting you a moment and opportunity to be significant and make something happen. Stop waiting for the moment on the big stage. Start maximising every moment granted you by the situation today. Get out of limbo, and get out of that waiting room. There is an open door before you today that must be utilised! It’s time to seize your moment! Don’t let it slip!
SCRIPTURE READING: Ephesians 5:14-16 Therefore He says: ” Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I thank you for teaching me how to maximise every moment and opportunity in this season, amen.
