So then, while we [as individual believers] have the opportunity.Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
One of the greatest regrets in life is the missed opportunities to help others. It was times when I intentionally turned my back on the opportunity. Afterwards the devil laid a guilt trip on me by trying to tell me Jehovah was ashamed of me. That is not true but He was disappointed.
True, He will present many other opportunities and regret is for the soul or souls I did not help. There is shame even though He forgives me.
The other regret is for the soul or souls I did not help. There is shame in the heart.
“If you lose an Opportunity you will be like one who lets the bird fly away; you will never get it back.” — John of the Cross
Do not dwell on your failure to do good when the opportunity arises but pray the Holy Spirit blesses you with being attentive to the opportunities and to bless you with the fortitude to obey Jehovahs nudging to do good. It is hard at first but once you make a habit out of it it becomes easier and your life is filled with a lot of joy.
Prayer: All glory to You my Beloved Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for Your favour of blessing me with bountiful opportunities to do good unto others so as to help them and to glorify Thy most Holy name. The added benefit is the expansion of spiritual wealth that multiplies with each act of goodness unto others. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose gift of His sacrifice blessed me with adoption into Your Holy family Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
