SEEDS OF VICTORY With Apostle Joseph Ziba

Don’t Wait for Opportunities; Create Them – Monday, 29th June, 2020

“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.” Colossians 4:5 (KJV)

There are some people who fall into a trap of idly waiting for opportunities—time or set of circumstances that make it possible for them to do something— to knock on their doors. They fold their arms, fix their eyes towards heaven and claim that they are waiting upon the Lord. But doing that defeats the perfect will of God for you. As a child of God, you are designed to create opportunities for yourself through constant walk in your Father’s wisdom.

In the opening scripture above, the word ‘redeem’ means ‘buy up’ or ‘rescue from loss’ or ‘improve and/or grow an opportunity’. And ‘time’ is ‘kairos’ in the original Greek rendering and it denotes ‘set time’ or ‘opportune time’ or ‘occasion for an opportunity’. Thus, the verse above can be interpreted as follows: If you walk (carry yourself) in wisdom you buy up opportunities or improve your set times. It is not like you wait for the set times (or opportunities) to come your way; but you create them by functioning in wisdom.

It is not necessarily all up to God to create opportunities for you, it is for you to get wisdom from Him which empowers you to buy your opportunities.

Apostle Joseph Ziba – Seeds of Victory, 29 June, 2020

You see, it is not necessarily all up to God to create opportunities for you, it is for you to get wisdom from Him which empowers you to buy your opportunities. Instead of waiting for opportunities to knock on your door, wisdom directs you on what needs to be done to create your opportunities. Therefore, stop waiting but raise your hunger for God’s wisdom and declare it upon your life.

CONFESSION

The wisdom of God is at work in me. I walk in the wisdom of God on a daily basis. Christ in whom dwells all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge makes His abode in me, therefore, I am not hamstrung. I do not lack ideas. I know what to do in every circumstance and at all times to create the opportunities that I need. In the glorious name of Jesus. Amen!
