We have the “assurance” of salvation when we “trust” Jesus with our lives, that’s it. Once we trust Jesus, He, our great Heavenly Physician, will perfectly heal and restore us, thus our assurance is in Jesus, not in ourselves or our future. Salvation is Now!! 1John 5:11-13, 1 John 3:2, John 17:3
I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
It says in this wonderful verse that God is going open a door for you that no man can shut. It says that God knows and sees all the things that you do and have done in your life and that he is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him.
God is faithful. If you keep His word and don’t deny Him by giving Him everything you have, he will reward you openly. Open doors will begin to come before you and supernatural blessings will follow! It’s in His word!
Sometimes the things we pray for are not the things God has in store for us. Oftentimes, we pray for little things when God wants to bless us with bigger ones. Sometimes we pray to God to bless us with the wrong things. I had to encourage myself and tell myself: when one door closes, another one opens.
You may be going through a situation right now feeling as though nothing is working out for your good. You might want to give up and throw the towel in. I want to encourage you today and tell you not to give up.
When God closes one door He opens up another. It could be that God wants you to have something else or be somewhere else in life. Or that God simply has another route for you to go down. Sometimes we have to hear NO in order to get to where God wants us to be. Sometimes door closes not because God is against us, but simply because it’s used as a tool to guide us where God wants us to be.
When you feel as though you are losing hope, don’t! Giving up, don’t do it. Know that God is with you. Guiding and ordering your footsteps. He has a specific path just for you to travel down but sometimes, like children, we lose track and go down the wrong path. Because of this, God put road blocks in the wrong paths to get us going down the right path.
Be encouraged and know that God has the key to open every door; change every situation and open new windows of opportunities. Sometimes, road blocks are there to lead you to the path Jesus wants you to go; sort of like the yellow and white ink in the street guiding you as you drive to your destination.
Be encouraged and know that God does everything for a reason; not for our downfall, but for our good and to His glory. The road blocks we face is simply God guiding us. Be encouraged in Jesus name knowing that when one door closes, another opens. God bless you.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Be happy and be blessed always in JESUS name in life…. Amen
Yours In Christ,
