May God open for us a door for the word, in order to make known the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned. Colossians 4: 3.
Many times we see closed doors in our path. We would like to move forward and it seems that we cannot or do not see. What to do at that time? The best resource we have is prayer. When we bow our hearts before Almighty God, we can see how he can majestically open closed doors.
The main issue is to believe that your request will be granted because of what he invites you to do: choose anything from the menu. And you can start to anticipate how good your appetizer will be, even before the server brings it to your table. In everyday life, we put an order in a restaurant and wait for them by faith.
Although it is important to verbalize your requests and speak in faith, some Christians place too much emphasis on being able to call things into existence, regardless of having heard a prior invitation from the Lord to do so.
Because by faith we walk, not by sight. - 2 Corinthians 5: 7
Now, faith is the certainty of what is hoped for, the conviction of what is not seen. - Hebrews 11: 1
Your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. - Matthew 6:32
If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, ask what you want and it will be done for you. - John 15: 7
All these verses of the Bible show us that God is ready to work for the good of his children. Doors that appear closed may receive the knockout blow that will make them shake and then swing wide. What closed door do we see before us today? The door of a new job opportunity? The door of opportunity for our children? The door of seeing life realized in the formation of a stable home? The door of the economy?
There is no door that does not yield to the power of God. Today I think I will see doors that open.
Lord, I cannot open those closed doors, but I come before you in prayer and in your time you will open them. Amen.
