Opportunities Not Excuses – Joshua 17 1-18

Posted by aftershock.org.uk on June 16th, 2008

These people are a moany old bunch aren’t they? They get given a great opportunity to build a homeland and what’s their answer. “But it’s hard to cut down the trees and there are some mean people over there.” I’m glad Joshua told them to get on with it. God puts so many opportunities in front of us, but we do have to do something about them to reap the blessings that God wants us to have. If God just delivered the end result then we would be no more than his pets. Just like a dog waits for its owner to put down the food we would be waiting for our God to deliver our every need. Our God doesn’t deliver our every need but he does provide for our every need. He provides opportunities for us to use the talents that he us given us and then it is down to us. So maybe it’s time we just got on with it.
