Do you have faith that No matter what is going on in your life good or bad a closed door may just be what one needs?
A good friend told me one time “When God, closes a Door and you are waiting for another one to open sweep the hall while you wait on God to open the next one”
I can only say at this time for me this is the hardest thing for me. I feel that God has closed many doors in my life. I have to trust (no matter how much it hurts) God is in control. He has my back. He knows what is best for his children. He said, he will never leave us or forsake us so, I will lean on that. The best thing I can tell anyone is that people will come and go and things will happen good and bad in our life but have faith God is our constant.
It is very hard to just sit back and watch all of these doors close and as I try to say what can I do. Sometimes one just needs to take a rest. Let time just pass. For me, doing nothing is very hard. Well, really as I watched all of the doors close in my life I can say I was doing a lot hoping that the doors would not close. The biggest thing that I did was every day I took it too prayer. Hoping that the lord would not have the doors close the way they were but I have to say even through it all. I may think I know the answer to what I could have done different. But honestly, as I have talked to a few of my Christian friends that prayed about the issues with me.
We all agreed that God knew the issues. We took it to him in prayed together and alone about what I was going through and still going through. I even let it go on longer than I should have. Hoping it would change. I also questioned God in my prayers. Saying No, God this cannot be the answer. I need a job. That is one door that we prayed about that has closed. Believe me. I even tried to do many things to work it out on my own. However, God wanted all of the doors closed. I do believe in him. I did pray to him. I have to leave it to him. I have seen him work so many times. Today, as I write this in my blog. What I need to realize on as well. He is in control of it all. I do speak about my God all the time. So, as I need to just let him work and not the world work. I know this is true with all of my heart he is in control however, I am a light shining for him. With that I need to let the world see that what I talk about all the time is true.
GOD IS REAL AND IN CONTROL OF IT ALL!!!!
He will work it out in his time and it will be better than anyone could ever imagine. His word is real and true so, at this time I will believe, trust, lean, keep my faith, and praise him in it all. I want you to know if you have some close doors do it with me. Sweep the hall. While waiting the hall sing words of praise. For he has it. Rest in him. You prayed so, give him time to work it out for his glory.
If anyone says you are doing nothing. You can answer Yes, I did. I got an answer. And now I am sweeping the hall and singing Prays on how my God is going to work it out. While I wait for the doors to open by my GOD.
Now it is just time to watch god work let the doors open when he says it is time. In the Bible it shows time and time again how he came through it all for the people we read about so why would he not come through for you. Just stay faithful to him. Trust the words you read and hear each day about him. Because his words are so true. Holding on to him and his word is just a part of having faith. No matter what doors are opening or closing. Pleas just cast it all on to him. If you were in prayer about it and you asked and asked what you wanted but it did not go as you planned it. Just now cast it in to his net. Let him really have it. It may be hard but I tell you. He promises he will not be a day late. You may think! I need that done NOW! Again, he will not only do it, you will be better off in the end. How can I say this because, he says it in his word. Man cannot do what he will do for you. When a door is close and it opens again. Not only will he come right on time it will not be able to be shut by any man. An Example that I want to give you about when a door opens again and God is the one to open it for you. It will be just like sliding on butter. If the butter is melted just right you cannot keep anything from sliding off of that stick of butter. You will not have to lift a finger to do one thing it will just fall in to place. Again better then you could have imagined it. He knows what is best for his children.
You can probably agree that we all have had many doors open and many more close. I have to say my closed doors are better than the ones that are open. Do not get me wrong my clos doors are great blessings but if I did not go through the closed door with the frustration of it. Watching God, work his craftsman ship molding me. I would not lean on him as much as I do. Jesus, is my best friend.
HIS WORDS (versus)
Proverbs 3; 5-6, Hebrews 13:5, Romans 8:28
Here is my prayer for all Dear Heavenly father,
You know my heart as I go through this close door. I am hurting at this time but, my trust is in you. I do believe what you say, if you Trust in the lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your path straight. You also say YOU will never leave us or forsake us. I come BOLDLY to you at your throne giving you back your words knowing that nothing is impossible with you. You are really in our corner. No matter what I know all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
THANK YOU for your word and for being my constant while I am going through this. Please comfort all of your children while they wait on you in their time of need. While we wait for the next door to open. Which I know will be better than the one you have closed.
In Jesus name I pray Amen
