Seize the Opportunity

NAE Financial Health

Hundreds of years ago when people mainly lived near the oceans, the word “opportunity” was coined.

It came from the time when ships needed to wait until the tide was in before heading out to sea, otherwise the ship would run aground. In the Latin language, the word ob portu described the perfect moment when time and tide converged for a ship to get underway.

Into every person’s life come some God-ordained opportunities.

You’ll know it’s the right time when an urgent, life-changing need — something that has eternal and significant value — converges with your ability. At just the right moment, urgency and ability come together. And at that exact moment, you have the opportunity to fulfill a divine purpose God intended for you.

Is it time for you and your congregation to move forward in some special way?

As you reflect on this 40-day journey, how is God working in your heart and the lives of others to move out into new waters of faith and service for his glory?
