The world is full of challenges. There are so many things we’ve got around us that needs our attention. There are so many expectations from home, office, church and even our from our neighborhood. We’ve got the responsibility of raising our children the right way, attend to our partners, be a friend, manage the finance of the home, attend to our aging parents. In the midst of these all, we discover that we’ve been drained emotionally, physically, psychologically and mentally. Our world might be crashing in on us, and nobody would seem to care or notice; it shouldn’t be an excuse for you not to make good use of the opportunity you’ve been given.

Ignorance of what one ought to do at a stipulated time, and season bring about a loss of opportunity. Some people occupy some wonderful and enviable positions in some parastatals and never bother to help others. Some say they are always skeptical about helping for fear of the unknown; many others just turn a blind eye. When asked, they respond, “I’ve got enough problems of my own,” “it’s not my business,” “no one appreciates,” etcetera. Some people actually know what they are expected to do, but selfishness, laxity, nonchalance and covetousness prevent them.

Many of us represent our localities, villages, towns, constituencies and state in all levels, but instead of using the assigned fund to work for the good and progress of the people and the community, they embezzle the fund and never get perturbed. Some, by the reason of the position they occupy, ought to have built good roads, schools, hospitals, laboratories and such like for their locality. Many of us do not understand nor realize that our success in life is not measured by how much wealth we amass, but by the number of people we’ve helped to succeed.

Some people are naturally endowed with talents, abilities, wisdom, with which they can rehabilitate, train, and transform mishaps around them to be good. David was a pleasant example of one who transformed the bad and ugly to excellent. Two Samuel 22:1-2- “… And everyone distressed, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him. So, he became captain over them. And, there were about a hundred men with him.” These eventually became David’s mighty men of valor.

Who comes to you when they are down? Are you approachable? Do you consider yourself a channel of blessing to others? Stop being ignorant of the times and season. Wherever you find yourself today, regardless of how difficult and inconveniencing the place may be now, please, start making the best of the opportunity. There are no accidents with God. You’re not there by chance or accident. You’re there for a reason, find it. Someone out there needs what you’ve got. Position yourself for availability and see God use the ordinary to make you extraordinary.

Blessings and Love
