1 Kings 17: 13-16 (KJV)

This weekend I had an opportunity to be with my parents and help after my Mom’s surgery.  It was an opportunity that I chose to take to reciprocate the love displayed through the years they took care of me growing up.  I thought about opportunities that we have in our lives and believe that God provides different types of opportunities for us daily.  These opportunities show up in different shapes and sizes.

We may have an opportunity to display some level of Grace to someone in need or display our determination and faith that God will see us through however we are tried.  It made me think of the story of Elijah and the widow woman in 1 Kings chapter 17.  When the widown met Elijah, she was going to make a last meal for her and her son because a drought in the land had kept them from having food.  1 Kings 17:13-16 reads, "And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as though hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.  For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.  And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.  And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah."

Elijah told her something that day, and she was presented with an opportunity.  In the story, the widow chose to display her determination and faith in God by doing what God had asked her to do. 

Let us take each day and look at the opportunities that God has for our lives, especially if you do not have a relationship with God.   Take advantage of the opportunity while you have breath and serve the God that provides our blessings.
