Why does opportunity come disguised as a problem or a challenge?
"Opportunity" - is something you consider taking for your greater advantage or benefit.
In a positive context, Opportunity is like a door to a path that leads to blessings. But why after opening the door, this path often presents problems and challenges? Maybe because God never gives us something we are not ready to have. And the challenges that comes with the opportunity are God's colorful ways of preparing us for the blessings that will come ahead.
I think its because that's what opportunity is. I don't think opportunity is simply something that falls into a person's lap, I think it is a by-product of our actions, and the more we do or are willing to do in our life, the more opportunities will present themselves as a result.
Most people look out for problems, but mostly there aren't any, but they will find some. Would they look out for solutions and opportunities, which mostly arise from confronting yourself with something unknown or uncertain, they would find solutions they never thought of.
when we stretch ourselves to find a solution to a problem we often find an opportunity to learn more, help others, give away what we have learned. Often, we just want the problem to go away. But if we looked at it as a golden opportunity we might be surprised.
Bottom line for me? Problems require my going to God and asking for his help. This is when I know I am not self-sufficient, not the strong I-can-do-anything-on-my-own type of person. The opportunity always comes when I ask God for help!!
I think if opportunities didn't come disguised as problems or challenges they wouldn't really be opportunities, because then everyone else would have already done it as it was so easy... or no one would need to do it because everyone could do it themselves.

Christians, Why do you give your problems to God if God Gave Them To You?Everyone says that God does not give you more than you can handle. So then if you think that you cannot handle it, you give that opportunity to learn back to God? What does that say to the God that You are refusing?
