Back in the day archers got extremely good at hitting their targets. So in order to separate the great archers from the rest of the pack, they would stick a small cylinder in between the archer and the target. Thus in order for the archer to hit his target, he had to first shoot the arrow through the cylinder.
Now the name that they used to refer to this cylinder was a kiros. Now the word kiros in Greek means moment or opportunity.
In life, we have different defining moments or opportunities. Sometimes in order to get to where we are going, we must pass through a difficult test or trial. Sometimes there is something that is standing in the way of us hitting our targets. Paul said this in 1 Corinthians:
“For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” (1 Corinthians 16:9 NKJV)
Just like the great archers had to shoot the arrow through the cylinder in order to hit the target, we too have to push through a defining moment in life so that we can take advantage of the opportunities that lie ahead of us. If you can persevere and push through your kiros moment, you will hit your target. Don’t be discouraged when difficulties arise and something is standing in between you and your destiny. Fix your eyes on the prize. Focus in on the target. In order that you might make it through the defining moments in your life.
