OPEN DOORS, SHUT DOORS

OPEN DOORS, SHUT DOORS

Isaiah 22:22 (NKJV) The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder; so he shall open, and no one shall shut; and he shall shut, and no one shall open.

Our Lord Jesus is the One who can open doors for us and also close doors for us.  What a comfort to know this.  Many times I come to a place of prayer, and I do not know what to do, or what decision to make.  So I pray this prayer: “Heavenly Father, You said that You would open doors for me and also close doors for me.  I have this decision to make, and I am not sure what to do, but my trust is in You.  I believe that you will open this door if it is Your will, or shut this door if it is not Your will.  I thank you for this in Jesus’ Name!”

In a prayer like this, we put our complete trust in the will of God, which is always the best.  Now, in saying that, we have to accept what God knows is best for us, and that might not always be what we want.  We might want what we just prayed about, but God knows the future, and He only wants what He knows will be a blessing for you.  It is not always easy, that is for sure, but if we could see into the future and see what our loving Father sees, then we would want His will.

The Bible says in Psalm 37:23, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way.”  God has my back!  In fact, I want Him to have all of me.  So today, trust Him as the Lord and King of your life, and place yourself into His care and trust.  Then, watch your steps line up with His good will for your life.

Confession: I believe, today, that my steps are ordered by my Father, and that he will open the good doors for me and shut the bad ones.
