“I will give him the keys to the house of David- the highest position in the royal court. When he opens door no one will be able to close them; when he closes door no one will be able to open them” – Isaiah 22:22 (NIV)
Once I had a meeting where I looked forward to an interview and hoped to make a great presentation that I hoped would open doors for me. But was delayed due to traffic. Unfortunately by the time I got to the place I found the time of the meeting had elapsed and I was no longer welcome. I felt down for losing out.
However, as I walked back feeling low, I recalled a brother who had once shared with me, that when God closes a door he opens up a new one. Look at the life of Moses. Eagerly he wanted to take a lead and liberate the children of Israel but the time was not right and he had to flee from Pharaoh. A door closed. Later at the right time he goes back to Egypt and is victorious.
Sometimes doors are closed because it not God’s will even after we crave an object of our desire. A request for a job promotion maybe denied because you have no idea what you would have got yourself into if the wish had been granted. There are cases when the timing is not right as we see in the life of Moses. In some instances God is pointing us elsewhere.
Whatever are your circumstances if you find a door locked, just remember this: it is not like God has forsaken you. Actually what you may consider as a door closing could be leading you to an opportunity. Like in that case, later I found abundant opportunities elsewhere. One door closing. So many others opening.
Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, that where I find a door has closed I know there is one which is opening.
