“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.” Philippians 3:13, KJV
One thing about the game of football, you have to learn to move on to the next opportunity. I was watching football and the game had become a very close one. The team with the ball ran a play and the quarterback threw a long pass to a very wide open receiver, but he dropped the ball. The receiver couldn’t believe it. He was very disappointed, hitting the ground, because he missed such a great opportunity. Later in the game, the same quarterback entrusted the same receiver with another opportunity and he caught the ball this time.
You may have dropped the ball and are wondering how you could have missed such a great opportunity. However, don’t continue to beat yourself up, nor allow the devil to do it. The Father is rich in mercy and He is the God that always will provide another chance. Like that quarterback, God is going to come right back to you with the same opportunity to fulfill what He desires in your life. The quicker you can move on, the quicker you will position yourself for the next opportunity. God will open another door and the key is staying ready.
Prayer: Father, thank You for encouraging me today. I missed it, however, I thank You that You are rich in mercy! You will give me another opportunity, and another open door. I pray You help me to seize it! I Thank You for helping me be ready for what You have in store for me! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
