We're good at praying for miracles - praying for God to take action or to do something on our behalf. But many times when we beg and plead for a miracle, maybe what we should be asking for is an opportunity. If you look at the lives of Joseph, Ezra, Nehemiah, Daniel, Esther - I could go on - you see a pattern: While these people all spent countless hours (even days, weeks, months) on their faces in prayer, one of the key things they were asking for was an opportunity. The faithful don't just want God to intervene - they want Him to intervene IN and THROUGH their lives - to be used by God to change the world around them. They didn't just want God's solution; they wanted to be part of the solution.
What's is God disrupting your heart over in this world?
Is He breaking your heart for the things that break His heart?
Do you see the change that needs to take place in your neighborhood? Your workplace? Your school? In the hearts and lives of your friends?
[Please, think long & hard about that last one.]
If so, are you asking God for an opportunity?
Asking Him to ready, prepare, equip, and USE you to BE the solution?
He will. If you ask Him.
