We spend a lot of our life opening, closing and going through doors. Think about it. We go in and out the front and back doors of our house. We walk through office and business doors, doors on churches, schools, libraries, grocery stores, neighbors houses and those of relatives. How many times a day do we open and close our car doors?
If we are kind and caring, we may often open and hold doors for friends, relatives, children, the elderly, the disabled or just the person behind us. A true gentleman always opens and holds the door for his wife, girlfriend, mother, mother-in-law or any other woman in his presence. He will also show the respect of holding open the doors for his parents and grand parents.
God opens doors for us all of our lives. Doors to different levels like enabling us to walk through to a better job, get medical treatment we need, or buy a house. He will open doors that lead us to the love of our life, the house we always wanted or a spiritual need we have.
Often, in our rush through our daily lives, we miss those doors and go through one of our choosing that sometimes ends up being catastrophic or stressful, but further down the path of life, he will present the right door again, at the right time after we have learned not to ignore the doors he presents to us.
Sometimes he will open doors for us that we have asked for in prayer if he determines that they are the right doors for us to go through. If you are asking for a door to be opened for a selfish reason, you more than likely will find that door locked.
Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
There is one door he will not open on his own. Because he gave us free will, allowed us to make our own choices, that door remains closed until you open it yourself. It is the door to your heart. He stands at that door and knocks :
Revelation 3:20 ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me
Will you open the door?
