Opportunity in crisis-3
Matthew 14:25 “And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.”
I remember once reading about the penicillin ointment and injection. At a time when gram-positive bacteria infections and diseases were killing people at an alarming rate, the whole world was in crisis and men were dying like chicken. Any cut or injury to the body almost always lead to death.
At that time a smart scientist set to work. He went right inside the bacteria; Penicillium molds and gave the world that very powerful antibiotics called penicillin. The rest as they say is history.
I’m sure you remember the story of David and Goliath. One of the most popular stories in the Bible. A wise man said, “While all the armies of Israel saw a giant too big to confront, David saw a giant so big that can’t be missed by a tiny stone”.
David must have been practicing by aiming stones with his catapult on small birds flying in the air, but here is an opportunity to aim at the head of a giant that is too big to miss.
While all the soldiers were busy describing the size of Goliath, his weapons and so on, all David saw was an opportunity of a life time to breakthrough! Hear him:
1 Samuel 17:26 “And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine…”
The only thing that preoccupied David’s mind was the reward of killing the giant, all he saw was the opportunity within the crisis.
Friend, in that current crisis, ask yourself: What is God trying to say here? What opportunities are here? What can I make of this?
The answers you’ll get will astound you! If the sea was not stirred that day, we may never have known that man can walk on water.
Perhaps that stirring of the waters around your life is deliberate. It is probably your opportunity to hit the lime light.
Beloved, stop making noise in that crisis, start making news! Selah.
