Missed opportunities?

Empty desert“Not that finding Moses was all that difficult for God. He didn’t have to do a Google search. He knew exactly where to find him. For even though Moses was on the “backside of nowhere,” the nowhere he was on the backside of was a place called Mt. Horeb—a name which means the mountain of God. Moses probably thought he was alone with the flock for another dusty day, stranded in the wilderness, just counting the days in the closing chapters of his life. Little did he know that he was tending his sheep in God’s neighborhood, or that he was about to be invited to play a major role in God’s deliverance plan.”

I don’t know about you but most days I feel like I’m going about my daily activities somewhere between nowhere and a black hole. Nothing special going on. No fanfare. Just the ordinary moments of another ordinary day. I’m guessing that’s how Moses felt.

But if God is present everywhere – and I believe He is – and His Spirit is already working in or on the lives of people all around us then every moment, every situation, every ordinary moment of every day is ripe with divine potential.

I wonder how many God-ordained opportunities we might be missing because we are not alive to the moment and sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit?
