Opportunity is knocking. Ready to open the door?
“Stuck in a rut and
don’t know where
you should go?”
Is your life in a rut? Same old, same old, day after day?
You keep thinking – “there has to be something else for me to do.”
“Will things ever change?”
Where is my opportunity? Will I get one?
Did you know opportunities are right at your doorstep waiting for you to open the door?
Please notice that I did not say AN opportunity but OPPORTUNITIES are waiting for you.
Where is this Opportunity knocking?
Every day you are bombarded with opportunities.
ads on radio,
After all, sales are all about offering you opportunities.
But you say – “Those aren’t the opportunities I’m thinking about.”
Maybe they aren’t, but wait – maybe one of them is.
And those aren’t the only opportunities you receive.
Someone asks if you’d like your coffee refilled or asks if you’d like to go out for lunch or shopping with them.
These, also, are opportunities that come your way.
Opportunity is knocking at work
In addition, there are those opportunities that come at work.
“Can you do this project?”
“Would you like to work on this committee?”
“Would you be willing to move to the head office? “
These may or may not be the opportunities you are waiting and hoping for.
But they are opportunities that come to you.
And opportunity is knocking again
Finally, there is your after-work life that is filled with opportunities.
“Would you like to golf with us this weekend?”
“Can you come for dinner tomorrow night?”
“Would you teach the Bible study for me on Sunday?”
Maybe, you’re beginning to see that your life is filled with opportunities.
But what do these mean to me today?
How does listening to them get me out of the rut my life is in?
Opportunity is knocking. What does this mean?

What and where are all these opportunities that you say are knocking?
Have you ever really looked for opportunities in your life? Or really thought about what you really would like a golden opportunity to look like? (Besides winning the Powerball Lottery!) If you aren’t satisfied with your life, it may be time for you to explore this whole area. Until you do, you will never be able to open the door. In fact, you may have too many other distractions in your life to even hear the knocking on your door. What could you be missing? Are your attitudes about accepting certain opportunities building a barricade at that door you hope to open? Sometimes we wiggle around in our present situations so much that we’re actually digging that rut deeper. It may be time to get a ladder to help you get out of that rut.
Christ Maybe the Opportunity that is knocking?
I’m sure somewhere along the line, you may have heard the expression that Christ is knocking on the door of your heart but can’t come in until you answer and invite Him in. That is one opportunity that Nana urges you to take today. It is so easy. Just say the “Sinner’s Prayer” and He’s right there anxious and eager to enter and be with you. He has a plan for your life that will keep opportunities coming day after day and ones that bring joy and happiness and fulfillment into your life. Try it. What do you have to lose?
4 Mistaken thoughts about opportunities
- First of all, we think that opportunity will show up at some point in our lives and we will recognize it when it happens. We’re not really sure what that opportunity is or what it will mean to us. We just know that it is out there and one glorious day we will find it and life will be suddenly much better.
- Because of that, we don’t look for opportunity, at least not consciously. We might look for a new job or a new apartment or house. Or we might be looking for an opportunity to share our lives with another and that of course just happens by going to the right place, joining the right club or dating service.
- As a result, all of these “opportunities” are rather vague in our minds. We’ve never really taken the time or made the effort to look for opportunities or try to make opportunities.
- Finally, we think opportunities and goals are the same and they are not. Your goal may be to retire a millionaire at age 45 but that is not an opportunity. It will take an opportunity to achieve that goal.
