Opportunity has been defined as circumstances presenting possibility. For someone to take advantage of the opportunity, one must be able to see the possibility.
Nicholas Sparks once said, “It’s the possibility that keeps me going, not the guarantee.”
Looking at our neighbors who need Christ, what possibilities come to mind?
Broadening our perspective to the city where we live, can we see evangelistic possibilities?
From the city to the state and national level, what possibilities lay the foundation of our vision?
When considering the nature of global outreach, what possibility keeps us going?
Can we see the possibilities through the ways God is working in our neighborhood, city, state, nation, and world?
Leadership will not succeed if we are only looking for guarantees. The possibilities of what God can and will do through us must keep us going.
We have seen the mighty hand of God at work throughout scripture, and we should be able to see His work in our lives every day.
When our leadership is fueled by these possibilities, then a vision is cast that will lead others to great achievement.
