Summary of Agony Of Wasted Opportunities by Bro. Gbile Akanni
Looking at the life of Joshua, you will see the agony of years exhausted but unfinished task, the agony of an open heaven that was wasted.
God has given you an opportunity to do something in your generation, but it can be wasted or diverted such that God’s own result is not achieved. it is important for you to plead for grace not to waste your opportunity.
For Joshua, God gave him an uncontested, unlimited opportunity to do something for Him and to cause His will to be done.
God sent the hailstones and made the sun to stand still for him yet he did not maximise it, to the extent that at the later end of his life, God has to announced to him that he is old yet there are still very much land to posses.
You see, ignorant people may not know the length and breath of what God has called you to do but will be clapping and celebrating you based on their faulty and incomplete information. Your cry should be, oh God, don’t let it be that at my old age, when my useful years has finished you then begin to show me what I should have done that I didn’t do.
You may be doing something in God’s name but have you heard God’s verdict? The gift that God deposited in you, and the sword He kept in your hand, what have you accomplished with them?
This your celebration is over what?
Maybe you have wasted God’s open heaven. If God gives you another open heaven, what will you do with it?
May what God has called you to do in your generation not die in your stomach.
If you have wasted your opportunity, plead with God for a second chance.
