Walking through doors that He opens.

God is has been really been speaking to me recently about walking through the doors that He opens. Sometimes the only way to discover God’s will is to practice what I believe is called “stepping out and finding out.” I believe if we have prayed about something and still don’t seem to know 100% what to do, I believe God is wanting us to simply take a step of faith. It’s like God is showing us that trusting Him is like standing before a automatic door. We can stand and look at the door all day, but it won’t open until we take a step forward and trigger the thing that opens it. “A wide door of opportunity for effectual service has opened to me and there are many adversaries.” 1 Corinthians 16:9

open doors to sky of heaven

There are times in life when we must take a step forward in order to find out, one way or the other, what we should do. Some doors open as soon as we take a step of faith and others never open no matter what we do. When God opens the door, then we need to be obedient and just go through it. If He does not open the door, then be satisfied to take another direction. But we can not let fear trap us in total inactivity.

open the door to a new season

It’s one thing to recognize an open door, but it’s an entirely different thing to actually walk through it. God may be speaking to us right now. We might thinking that we’re not sure if we should walk through this door. Many times, it’s the devil that has hung a curtain of “fear” over the opening. However, the same God who gave you the awareness of the door to begin with will also give you wisdom, knowledge, and courage to walk through it.

We need to keep going forward in faith, searching for what God wants us to do. Walk boldly through the doors God opens for us, and don’t become discouraged when He closes one.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
