TOPIC: Overcoming Opportunity Wasters (1)

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 27:33-41, Mark 6:1-6


Hebrews 12:17 – “For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.”


God’s best gift to us is not in things but opportunities.





In life, there are three things that cannot come back: the spoken word, the time spent and replaced opportunities.

Opportunity has the following meanings (1) It is an opening (2) It refers to favourable circumstances. (3) It means advantageous situations, a chance and a discovered avenue for profitting (4) It is taking advantage of God’s gifts upon your life. (5) It is having a big break, a possibility, a prophetic message delivered to you (Proverbs 12:27). (6) It is locating what will work and making it to work (7) is to know what to produce and knowing what not to produce. (8) It is taking advantage of God’s gifts upon your life. (9) It is favourable allowance that God has given to you.

God’s best gift to us is not in things but opportunities. Blind Bartimaeus and the woman with the issue of blood used their opportunities. When you miss an opportunity, you miss success. Highly successful people are actually products of used opportunities and you can never find a lost opportunity. Being in the right place at the right time as well as availing yourself of opportunities that come your way will make you successful in life.

The Scriptures are full of men who, instead of keying into the ministry of divine help and using their opportunities, wasted the opportunities. (1) Adam and Eve squandered the opportunity God gave them in the Garden of Eden. (2) Lot moved with Abraham who was very spiritual and built altars wherever he went, but the never built altars. He missed the opportunities heaven provided him with (3) Men of Sodom and Gomorrah saw angels. Instead of crying for the angels to help them, they harassed the visitors from heaven and missed their opportunity. (4) Esau sold his birthright and missed his opportunity. (5) The sons of Aaron, Nadiad and Abihu they missed their opportunities to be very great priests of God

(6) Jerusalem too missed its opportunites by being unable to decipher its day of visitation (Luke 19:29-44). (7) Judas lost his opportunity to be a great apostle. Satan entered Judas in the presence of Jesus and the betrayed his master (8) Gehazi lost his opportunity for four-fold anointing of Elijah. (9) Demas lost the opportunity of being a great apostle. I pray that you will not miss your divine opportunity, in the name of Jesus.

There are powers known as opportunity wasters. You need to avoid them or pray them out of your life. They include sin and backsliding, negligence, procrastination, laziness, indecision, procrastination, spiritual lukewarmness, trusting in the arm of the flesh, bad company, ingratitude, selfishness and pride



1. Father, let me not waste my divine opportunities, in the name of Jesus!

2. Father, let me not squander my open heavens, in the name of Jesus!

3. Father, let me not run into deficit in the bank of heaven, in the name of Jesus!


4. Father, let not my past be better than my future, in the name of Jesus!

5. Father, let me not become history while I am still living, in the name of Jesus!

6. Father, let me not become a negative example, in the name of Jesus!

7. Father, let me not go into slumber in a sinking boat, in the name of Jesus!
