“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: Ecclesiastes” 3:1

Perhaps, you may wonder how you might locate or attract opportunities at the right time.

First, you have to be in the spirit. This means you have to listen to God talk to you about what to do in search of opportunities. Try to listen to God talk to you and be ready to do what He says. This means you have to pray regularly, especially first thing in the morning when you wake up. Before you get out of bed, simply close your eyes again, and ask God to order your steps for the day along the right paths. The Scripture says in Proverbs 3:6, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight”

 Second, if you seek great opportunities or are looking to find a future partner to marry, for instance, it is important that you go out of your comfort zone. The world is not in your house, beloved, it’s out there (Matthew 7:7). Therefore, you may choose to go out for a walk, spend an evening with friends, play games with friends, or start a conversation if the need arises. There are a lot of good ways you can do this, beloved.

Third, as stated above, follow the lead by the spirit: some opportunities are not good, and some people should be avoided as well, for they tend to mislead one into committing errors of judgment. Use your common sense and ask the spirit to take the lead at all times. The Scripture wants us to form the habit of receiving divine instructions and obeying without questioning (Ref: Luke 18:40-41; Luke 19:6)

Fourth, adopt a “Yes attitude”. This doesn’t mean that you have to say yes to any Tom, Dick, or Harry, or say yes to something unlawful or ungodly. As I stated above, follow your inner urge or let the spirit lead you. For instance, when the spirit says it’s okay, and if there is no good reason to say no, then say Yes! Nevertheless, please do not force yourself into any bad situation. That is not what the “Yes attitude” is all about. The “Yes attitude” is taking chances; It means you have to go out there to see what is to be done, and not that you should deliberately or without taking enough care, inadvertently run into danger by having dealings with the wrong persons. Therefore, note that: when there is no good reason to say no, then say yes. Take the chances that are offered to you! Run ahead and climb above the crowd! (Luke 19:4) Or proceed to make outright restitution (Ref: Luke 19:8)

Fifth, be resolute and never allow any further loss of opportunity to happen. (Ref: Luke 18:39)

After we have first prayed and are also open to being led by the spirit, we may, in most cases, go out and feel the pause of the environment. Don’t just sit indoors throughout. This is even more so in a situation where you are seeking a soul mate. This is because your future partner or your soul mate is out there, outside your house. so that is where you need to be during most periods.

When you start applying the above guidelines, you will, in turn, expand your social circle, opportunities, and satisfaction.


Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I ask that you quicken my spirit from this day onward and grant me the power to recognize opportunities that you have laid bare on my paths. Father, unite me with my destiny helpers today as you order my feet along the right paths, I decree and I declare that my breakthrough is NOW, and I am unstoppable. AMEN.
