Window of Opportunity
I’ve been seeing this a lot lately in my own life as well as in others.
When one is in a spiritual prison or even physical one, they miss these windows of opportunities.
What is a window of opportunity?
A window of opportunity is a short, often fleeting time period during which a rare and desired action can be taken. Once the window closes, the opportunity may never come again.
Important points to look at so we understand the significance of not missing it.
Point 1 – Short
Point 2 – Rare
Point 3 – Opportunity – desired action
Bible reference to a window of opportunity:
John 5:1-9 – For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water; whosever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
One can be in a prison so long that they become institutionalize and no longer think like a free person would. They will never see these windows or if they see it they don’t even try anymore. No hope.
In Christ there is hope:
If we’re in Christ we are free and no one can shut the door which God has opened
“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it;
There is hope – Jesus asked him “do you want to be made well?”
The most important opportunity of one’s life is this one….John 3:16
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life

When you miss these opportunities – recognize, ask for forgiveness, repent and then start obeying.
