We always face doors of opportunity. How do you choose?

Ask for a confirming sign from the Lord your God. You can even ask for something miraculous. Isaiah. 7:11

We must keep on praying and waiting upon the Lord, until the sound of a mighty rain is heard. There is no reason why we shouldn’t ask for large things; and without doubt we shall get large things if we ask in faith, and have the courage to wait with patient perseverance upon Him, meantime doing those things which lie within our power to do.

We can’t create the wind or set it in motion, but we can set our sails to catch it when it comes; we can’t make electricity, but we can stretch the wire along which it is to run and do its work; we can’t, in a word, control the Spirit, but we can so place ourselves before the Lord, and so do the things He has calls us do, that we will come under the influence and power of His breath.

The greatest saints who ever lived, whether under the Old or New Testament, are on a level which is quite within our reach. The same forces of the spiritual world which they commanded, and the exertion which made them such spiritual heroes, are open to us as well.

If we had the same faith, the same hope, the same love which they exhibited, we would achieve marvels as great as those which they achieved. A word of prayer in our mouths would be as potent to call down the rain or bring the melting fires of God’s Spirit, as it was in Elijah’s mouth to call down literal rain and fire, if we could only speak the word with that full assurance of faith wherewith he said it. 

Allow God to confirm the opportunities He as presented to you and claim them.
