1 Peter 3:15 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: (KJV)

So often we miss the opportunities God gives us to speak His word into someone else.  A door is open and we miss it.  Either we haven’t open our ears to hear His voice for the day, we are only interested in our own preset schedule, or we are afraid of speaking up for fear we are rejected.  When we speak God’s word into someone what they do with it is not our burden other than to pray for them.  The result of our speaking God’s word is up to Him and the one to whom we speak.  Let us be sure to put fear of rejection aside and love and obedience to God up in place of our fears.  Let us remember each and every day to open our hearing to our Father’s voice and ask Him to bless someone through us each day.  Then, let us be alert to open doors.  It may be just a warm greeting to someone who is lonely.  We tend to look for the big opportunities probably because we have a desire to look really good.  Let us be willing to do the smallest of blessings to anyone at anytime and anyplace God shows us an open opportunity.  There are no reruns.
