Hello friends, this is Responsibility Campaign, and I’m D. J. Goodman, your Responsibility Coach. Today, I want to show you something about the power of opportunity, and that is, I want to define what opportunity is. You know there is a literal way of defining something, and there’s a scriptural way of defining it. There’s a way you’d define something and there’s a way God would define it. I’d rather go with God – the way God defines something. Now, reading the New Living Translation of Ecclesiastes 9:11, there’s something very interesting I discovered, and I want to read the entire passage, or the entire verse in New Living Translation. It says,
Ecclesiastes 9:11 [New Living Translation (NLT)]
11 I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time.
The word “chance” here may confuse a lot of people. For instance, the King James Version says “…TIME and CHANCE happeneth to them all.” It says the strong doesn’t always win the battle; educated people wouldn’t necessarily lead successful life. We’ve seen a lot of educated people that are not successful. You’ve seen a lot of strong people that do not win in the race of life. Now, here, the Bible says that time and chance that happen to them all is to be in the right place at the right time.
So we can define opportunity as being in the right place at the right time. Opportunity is right place, and right time. Now let me tell you something: there is no school on earth; there is no higher institution of learning that can teach you how to be in the right place at the right time. And that puts you in a tight corner. That puts the strong in a tight corner; that puts an educated person in a tight corner; that puts an experienced person in a tight corner, because you do not know the right place to be at the right time.
So when God comes in, and makes you to be in the right place at the right time, that is OPPORTUNITY, and that is when you make progress in life. So, to get someone to marry, the secret is to be in the right place at the right time. To get what you’re looking for in life — if it’s money, or to get an education, or to get your heart desire; all you need to do to get that thing is to be in the right place at the right time.
I know that the question that will be going through your mind is, how do I know how to be in the right place at the right time? That is why I want to tell you the secret. But first of all know that opportunity is being in the right place at the right time.
It is being in the right place at the right time that makes some people to look smarter than others. It’s being in the right place at the right time that makes some people look like they are luckier than others; and that’s exactly the secret I want to show you.
Now before I go, as my custom is, my RESPONSIBILITY CHALLENGE to you today is to ask you, Are you always in the right place at the right time? Or do you know how to determine to be in the right place at the right time? Would you consider yourself to be in the right place at the right time in life?
Till I come your way next time on Responsibility Campaign, I challenge you, BE RESPONSIBLE! Bye for now!
