Could Someone Open the Door!!
Have you ever been stuck outside and call out, "Could someone open the door!!" I think all of us could relate to this at some point in our life... physically and spiritually. I know I have been there numerous times spiritually. You get to a place which you believe is your destination, only to find the door closed. What do you do? Well, I can only speak for myself, but I have yelled at the door, kicked the door, backed up and ran into to it... that really was not smart. But in the long run, if we are trying to find our spiritual destination in life, the only thing we can do is trust that God will not lead us through a wrong door.
Mark Batterson makes the following observation on page 46 & 47 of his book "Chasing the Lion: "One of the most circled promises in my Bible is Revelation 3:7: 'What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.' I love the first half of that promise - open doors. The second half? No so much! But some of the greatest miracles in my life have been on the other side of a closed door."
I've been there... I AM there! But, I am beginning to learn through bruises, broken bones, and concussions, that I would rather God open the door than for me to FORCE IT open.
Today, I challenge you to look at the door you find yourself in front of. Do you want it open more than God?
