What Do You See?

What Do You See?


“A great…door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.”              1Co 16:9 NKJV

Paul writes, “For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” So, what are you focusing on? The open door or the adversaries, the opportunities or the obstacles? In 1866 an amateur geologist noticed some South African children playing with a glistening rock. He asked the children’s mother if he could purchase it. Thinking it was worth nothing, she gave it to him. Later, when he examined it, he discovered that it was a premium twenty-one carat diamond. When word got out, a Scottish mineralogist named James Gregory was sent to investigate. He reported back that South Africa wasn’t suitable for finding diamonds. He speculated that the previous discoveries had resulted from ostriches, of all things, eating the gems in distant lands and depositing them in South Africa via their dung. A few days after Gregory’s report was made public, an eighty-three-carat diamond was found in the area that he had visited. It is now known as The Star of South Africa, and it launched the region’s first mining operation in what is today the world’s largest producer of diamonds. And what about Gregory? His name lives on, but not as he might have wished. In the diamond industry when someone exhibits bad judgment, it’s called “pulling a Gregory.” If you ask God, He will help you find the “treasure” in your field (See Mt 13:44-45). If Jesus could turn water into wine and feed five thousand people with a boy’s lunch, think what He can do through you. The question is, what do you see? The open door, or the obstacles?
