When Opportunity Knocks

“he will bend his shoulder to the load…” (Genesis 49:15, NLT)

I love opportunity. I want it to knock, come in, and make itself at home, preferably offering fame and fortune in three easy steps.

But God blessed Issachar in a different way. He saw opportunity and chose to work hard to take in the blessing before him.

Father, help me to see the opportunities you place before me and to willingly shoulder the load to take hold of them.
