The term ‘opportune time’ can be defined as the appropriate time for a non-recurring event in your life. Hab. 2:3 says, ‘For the vision within your heart is yet for an appointed’ time (an opportune time). This means that the vision is for a time when opportunity will be created for it to be made manifest and it hastens to its fulfilment. It will neither deceive nor disappoint you. Though it tarries, wait earnestly on it. This scripture emphasises the need for every individual to wait and refrain from acting until the opportunity for the fulfilment of their vision is presented to them. This means that there is a time in your life where you should not look for the lime light. During this period, you should simply embrace the cloak of invisibility while preparing for the manifestation of the things that no human eye or ear has ever seen or heard. At such times, visibility could be a curse especially to young dreams and visions. This is because such dreams do not yet possess enough spiritual stamina to withstand exposure to diverse influences. It is a key principle in life that if you do not learn how to be invisible, you should not desire visibility.
You have to learn to wait. You need to imbibe the virtue of patience. The birth of destiny requires that you possess enough strength of character to keep on processing your vision even while your peers appear to be moving ahead. It requires the appreciation of your unique destiny and its related timing. Jesus demonstrated this in His early years He did not seek premature attention before His time for manifestation arrived. When John the Baptist was enjoying a huge following, He was silent. Even when John was reluctant to baptise Him, Jesus still encouraged him not to sabotage God’s process. He was one person who understood and embraced His process. He spent 30 years in oblivion developing all His latent qualities in anticipation of the period of visibility. This period was crucial in His development because if anything was left undone in this preparatory stage, He would not attain the fullness of His purpose in those areas.
This spiritual concept is so specific that even people with evil intentions cannot manifest their desires until the opportune time is presented. This indicates that timing is everything when it comes to the manifestation of the hearts’ desires. The Scriptures say “to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven (Eccl 3:1).
