DEFINE YOUR OPPORTUNITIES

I know you will be asking this question probably to yourself: Do you identify opportunities before you define them? Today i am publishing this piece just to create in you the consciousness of the awareness of the fact that; You identify opportunities before you define them.


When it comes to opportunities, you cannot define which suits you until you have identified it. 
Opportunities are defined by your Call according to His purpose.

Let me dwell a bit on this. I have come across series and various opportunities that seem to have seeds of greatness in them, let me use Writing as an instance. There are types or categories of writing and I can write well enough ranging from the Scripture to Imaginations or call it emotional's but of it all I had to define my opportunities. Spiritual/Scriptural, Business/Financial and Emotional writings are my defined  opportunities. Every other type of writing- Social, Political etc are Identified Opportunities and not Defined Opportunities.

How you get to know your Defined Opportunities is that you find the strength required to do them and they refine you.


Lets go Scriptural a bit:
If you followed the story of Daniel I was discussing with you last week, you'll discover something great about defining your Opportunity.

Daniel 2:49- Then Daniel requested of the King, and he set Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon; but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.

All in the verse above happened after he(Daniel) told the king his dream and the interpretation to it. The king made Daniel a great man, gave him many great gifts, made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon and Chief of the governors over all men of Babylon.

Daniel sorted all this opportunities out i.e. he identified his opportunities but out of it all he defined his opportunity! Lets review how he did that.


  • He accepted the greatness
  • HE accepted the many great gifts
  • He rejected ruling over the affairs of the province of Babylon- requesting the King setting Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
  • HE accepted being the Cjief of governors over all the wise men of Babylon
We all need to know that not everything that comes our way shining is an opportunity. It is not all that is gold that glitters.

Daniel identified 4 opportunities but defined 3 of the 4 to be his and they did refine him. How?

Refine according to word-web dictionary means: Improve/Perfect by Polishing.

His defined Opportunities made him work with three administrations/Kingdoms;
  •   Daniel served as an Advisor or Wise man under King Nebuchadnezzar
  •   King Belshazzar called on Daniel to interpret the writing on the wall 
  •   HE was one of the three administrator under King Darius
  •   HE was living during the reign of King Cyrus of Persia but the Bible gives no account or record of his service to that monarch.- i.e He lived long. Even if your defined opportunities will not give you anything, they give you long life!

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

DATING - WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

Dating and Dates ( - going on dates) are two different things.
Dates are events where an individual goes out to meet people and know people. eg. A father and daughter going on a date.

Dating is form of romantic courtship typically between two individuals with the aim of assessing the other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.
It is going on with someone intentionally checking to know if you have compatibility (emotionally, sexually, etc) with him/her with no boundaries, specificity or exclusivity!

The concept of dating is not Kingdom-oriented. There's no such things as "Christian Dating".
What then do we do instead of dating?
Do you know how to find your wife without dating?
Do you know how to found by your husband without dating?

DO NOT SEEK A SIGN!

2 KINGS 3:17 KJV For thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts.

God's word to us is relevance and guiding light as to how God will have it be is that we do not seek a sign for this month's wonder!

1 Corinthians 1:22  For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom.

But,
Ye are Christ! (1 Corinthians 3:23)

You are the sign of the wonder, you are the miracle says the Lord.

Most  supernatural operation around our life's this month will not call for attention like the bones in the valley! (Ezekiel 37)

Therefore Be still and known that I am God (Psalm 46: 12)

Welcome to March!

TERRITORIAL RELEVANCE

The Garden of Eden in Genesis is not just a Story or History. It is our life to be lived.
- It is the system of God for Territorial Relevance cum Global Relevance!

The garden was God's first gift to the unfallen man(Adam) and also, every redeemed man.

 Though, after the fall of the man; thus the corruption of the earth, the system changed.

Joel 2:3
[3]A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

The system changed to men going through The Wilderness experience first, before The Garden experience then True RELEVANCE!
- John the Baptist being the system, Jesus being the standard. You?
