The Lord will instruct me, guide me with his eyes and teach me in the ways that I shall go in Jesus Precious name. Psalm 32 v 8 O! Lord open my eyes to see various opportunities in and around me in the name of Jesus.
Praise God. Beloved, we are living in a world of abundant opportunities. Many are grappling with shadows, toiling restlessly without any trace of achievement because of their inability to see the opportunities that abound around them. Recently, it was discovered in a place called Muntaru, Zimbabwe that the town had been sitting on a large deposit of DIAMOND since creation but undiscovered until recent times. I pray for you, that God will reveal to you the resources and opportunities around you in Jesus name. (Amen)
