As I was reading in Acts, Chapter 3 (Peter and John had met the lame man at the temple gate and God had healed him), it said, "All the people stood there awed by the wonderful thing that had happened." However, the verse that really jumped out at me was the very next one, "Peter saw his opportunity and addressed the crowd!" I feel like so many times in my life I clutter my mind with things of the past that I miss my opportunity in the present! When God opens the door of opportunity - we have to be ready to step in! If Paul had let his past experiences (persecution of the church) consume his thoughts and listened to the enemies accusations, he would have never saw the opportunitiy! Where would all the people be whose lives he influenced? Do not let the past destroy your future! Do not let the past cloud your vision causing you to miss the opportunity God has given you now!!!! Look forward! See your door of opportunity and when it opens, don't hesitate - RUN THROUGH IT!!!!!
