Your Seed Creates Opportunities

3 It came to pass, at the end of seven years, that the woman returned from the land of the Philistines; and she went to make an appeal to the king for her house and for her land.
4 Then the king talked with Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, saying, “Tell me, please, all the great things Elisha has done.”
5 Now it happened, as he was telling the king how he had restored the dead to life, that there was the woman whose son he had restored to life, appealing to the king for her house and for her land. And Gehazi said, “My lord, O king, this is the woman, and this is her son whom Elisha restored to life.”
2 Kings 8:3-5

One day, without any obvious physical prompting, the king of Israel asked Gehazi to tell him all the great things that Elisha, the man of God had done. There was no physical prompting for him to know about the things Elisha had done, but it was the invisible realm that caused the king to want to know about the things Elisha had done. The invisible realm was stirred up because the invisible spiritual realm controls the visible physical realm. While the story was going on, it just so happened that the Shunammite woman – our aggressive, perceptive, habitual and progressive giver, decided to go and state her case at that very moment, and she did. She wanted to reclaim her house and her land. She walked in just at the point where Gehazi was telling the story of how Elisha raised her son back to life.

Looks like a coincidence? Looks like good luck? No! Her seed created an opportunity for her. The force of your seed creates opportunities. An opportunity is an occasion that brings about limitless possibilities. There should be nothing like “luck” in the dictionary of the believer. What people call “luck” is when preparation collides with opportunity.

Many years ago this woman prepared for this opportunity by the force of her aggressive seed. Many years later, her preparation collided with opportunity. She might have forgotten about the seed. As long as you live and you keep giving according to the Word of God, opportunities, not luck, will keep on coming your way. Let your preparation in terms of seed sowing, collide with opportunity.

Confession: I remain in the cycle of giving and receiving. My seed creates opportunities for me; it creates occasions which bring about limitless possibilities for me.
