The Lord is so good to His children. He says that He opens doors that no one can close and He closes doors that no one can open.
Revelation 3:7b He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens,
Often He will direct through open and closed doors. Wise is the child of God who learns to listen to His voice so that they don’t miss the open doors that He has for them and as well, that they don’t try to open doors that He has closed.
Revelation 3:8 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.
However, He tells us to knock and the door will open. Why should He open a door for you if you are not knocking? He wants you to step out in faith and knock and then trust Him to open or close the door.
Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
You must knock first to see if this is where He wants you to go.
Matthew 7:8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
The Lord has come knocking on the door of your heart. Have you opened the door of your heart to Him?
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.
He seeks us out first and then He wants us to open up to Him and seek Him. We love Him because He first loved us.
I John 4:19 We love, because He first loved us.
Do you love Him? Have you opened up your heart to Him? Are you knocking on doors in faith that He will open the doors that He wants you to go through? Trust Him. He says that He goes before you.
Psalm 139:5 You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
He has enclosed you behind and before and laid His hand on you. He never leads you where He has not gone before you. He is faithful and He wants you to be full of faith.
