I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. Revelation 3:8, ESV.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
God opens doors of opportunity before us that no one is able to shut. But we have to realize, sometimes He also closes doors because He has something better in store. We may see a logical opportunity, but just because its the logical way doesnt mean that its Gods way. Just because it happened that way before doesnt mean its going to happen that way next time. Thats why you have to stay open and keep trusting in God. If youre narrow-minded and only look at the door thats been closed, you may miss the door He has opened behind you!
Friend, when you are able to let go of your own agenda and trust God, Hell make sure you see those open doors. Scripture says His Word is what lights our path. Our attitude should always be, God, I surrender all to You. Have Your way in my life. I trust Your timing. God, I trust You to do it Your way. Then, step back and see the open door He has prepared for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for ordering and directing my steps. I choose to trust You even when doors close before me. I believe that You have my best interest at heart. I am ready and available. I stand looking for the open door You have for me in Jesus name. Amen.
