Observe each Opportunity

"They… required of us a song… How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land?" (Psalm 137:3,4).  "Whoso findeth Me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD.  But he that sinneth against Me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate Me love death" (Proverbs 8:35,36).  "Behold, the darkness shall cover the earth… but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee" (Isaiah 60:2).  "A great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries" (1 Corinthians 16:9). 

The situations that we see
Within this strange and troubled land,
Present an opportunity: 
A door that's opened by God's hand. 

We do not choose the circumstance
Confronting us with tribulation,
But we may seize the moment's chance
To show God's promise of salvation. 

As we behold the darkness now
Destroying many with seduction,
Our faithful Savior shows us how
To shine the light of His instruction.

O Lord, as we observe each door
Of opportunity today
Which You have opened to explore,
We follow as You lead the way.
