Seizing moments

Ecclesiastes 9:11
I returned and saw under the sun that— The race is not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all._~

This scripture implies that the earth is a plain level ground and there is no one who has an advantage over anyone.
First of all, you have to understand that opportunity and chance are different two different things. Opportunity is what’s given to you and chance is what you take. From the time we are born, we are presented with moments to seize opportunities to recalibrate our lives, but sometimes we miss them. Take note, opportunities are wrapped up in moments and a moment missed might take a while to come back. But there are people who know their God who, grab opportunities, and they even snatch other people’s missed opportunities. Esther almost missed her moment. The words of Modeccai to Esther literally mean’t that, if you don’t take your chance your replacement is already there because Jews were going to be saved anyway.

Esther 4:4
Amplified Bible
For if you remain silent at this time, liberation, and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?”

Remember it’s not what is given to you, It’s what you take.There is hunger that should be in God’s children to seize moments and serve God May God open our eyes to see and seize life turning moments

  1. Moments are often impregnated with His wisdom and our opportunities to learn, the poor widow giving all she had was a teaching moment in the wisdom of God, the barren fig tree, the many parables were all common occurrences in which Jesus weaved the deep lessons of the Kingdom. Even so in our own journey, there is much for us to glean and to be instructed more fully in the wonder of His ways. It is to the wise, to those who hunger for Him, who look earnestly into the veiled truths of His glory wrapped in the garments of everyday life.

    “every where and in all things I am instructed…” Philippians 4:12

    Blessings, good post.

    1. Wow thank you BT what a powerful opening statement of your response moments are impregnated with His wisdom and opportunity to learn…i had to re-read this and capture the revelation in there.What you have said it reinforces the need to take advantage of those important moments.

      About parables and the way Jesus Christ taught one will go with tension in his/her mind.After pondering over those parables they will come with questions remember Nicodimus …There was something special about the way Jesus taught.
