SMS Message - WHERE MEN LIKE SAUL COULD NOT HOLD ONTO OPPORTUNITIES TO PLEASE GOD MEN LIKE JOSEPH, DAVID, MOSES, ETC DID 1SAMUEL 15:10-11, 1SAMUEL 13:13-14. MAY GOD NEVER REGRET GIVING YOU OPPORTUNITIES. WHEN EVERY HUMAN PLACES HIS/HER LIFE ON THE SCALE OF GIFT OF LIFE, GOOD HEALTH, SALVATION IN CHRIST, SLEEPING AND WAKING UP, PROVISION OF FOOD AND WATER, GOING OUT AND COMING IN, MEMBERSHIP OF A FAMILY, MEMBERSHIP OF A SOCIETY, ACCESS TO EDUCATION, ACCESS TO VOCATIONAL TRAINING, ETC IT CAN BE SAID THAT NO MAN STILL LIVING IS WITHOUT ONE OPPORTUNITY OR THE OTHER AT HIS/HER DISPOSAL. IT WAS AN OPPORTUNITY GOD GAVE TO MAN TO HAVE CREATED HIM IS HIS IMAGE AND NOT LIKE ANY OTHER ANIMAL. THE QUESTION NOW IS –HOW HAS MAN BEEN USING THE OPPORTUNITIES GOD GAVE HIM - TO PLEASE OR DISPLEASE HIM? THE ANSWER IS BOTH. IN GENESIS 6:6 “THE LORD WAS GRIEVED THAT HE HAD MADE MAN ON THE EARTH, AND HIS HEART WAS FILLED WITH PAIN”. WHY? MAN DID NOT USE THE OPPORTUNITY OF THE IMAGE OF GOD IN HIM TO REPRESENT GOD WELL. HOWEVER, IN THAT SAME GENERATION IN GENESIS 6, THE BIBLE SAYS “NOAH WAS A RIGHTEOUS MAN, BLAMELESS AMONG THE PEOPLE OF HIS TIME AND WALKED WITH GOD”. IN THIS GENERATION GOD IS ALSO KEEPING RECORDS OF HOW YOU AND ME HAVE BEEN USING THE OPPORTUNITIES HE GAVE US. WHERE SOME ARE NOT USING THEIR OPPORTUNITIES TO PLEASE GOD, WE STILL HAVE THOSE WHO ARE USING THEIR OWN WELL (“YET I RESERVE SEVEN THOUSAND IN ISRAEL – ALL WHOSE KNEES HAVE NOT BOWED DOWN TO BAAL AND ALL WHOSE MOUTHS HAVE NOT KISSED HIM 1KINGS 19:18). ARE YOU AMONG THIS RESERVE?
