What are the God-given doorways in your life?
“BLESSED IS THE MAN WHO LISTENS TO ME, WATCHING DAILY AT MY DOORS, WAITING AT MY DOORWAY. FOR THOSE WHO FIND ME FIND LIFE AND RECEIVE FAVOR FROM THE LORD ” Proverbs 8:34-35
Have you ever given much thought to the doors that the Lord might be opening in your life? Especially when you wait on him to call you, then as you truly listen to Him and proceed to take the courage to actually do what He asks of you? The LORD God Himself actually escorts you as you take the steps! If you commence to walking with Him you soon will be astonished with the incredible journey He will take you on! For me it has been truly grand!
As I become more and more obedient to Him, to His direction, the blessings just keep coming my way! I have been so busy these last few months experiencing the many doors He has opened unto me! I have been astounded by His abundance and blessing upon my life. All of the Holy Spirit directed connections, the new women He has placed in my life and all that we are up to together for Him is huge!
God has so much to bestow upon those who seek Him and seek His will. What perspective do you take as you begin to view the Heavenly Doors? Have you ever really thought about doors and the passageways as heavenly portals?
Do you choose to stay in the room with your ears plugged and the doors shut tightly all around you in order not to venture out? Does that idea feel safer to you so that you do not have to take any risks?
What would it be like for you if you were to view the word risk and shift the perspective of it? Shift the viewpoint of RISK to FAITH?
- Faithfully seeing a door as a heavenly portal opening up for you?
- What doors are you keeping tightly shut that you know you should be opening?
- What might be on the other side of the door should you open it?
In the verse above you see that as you listen to the calling of GOD you will be blessed! I am so amazed at the way He calls us forth to do His work! Until the end of time we must be listening to Him, listening to His voice, His Words of wisdom, His Words of direction, His Words of love.
His true desire is to bless us, not to cause us to fear Him or His calling on our lives.
I love the second part of this passage as we are instructed to watch DAILY at His doors. Not just every now and then, or once a month when we think about it, but every single day we are to be WAITING AND WATCHING at His doors, waiting for Him to bless us!
The thought of this is beautiful to me as I begin to become more and more aware of the doors that He is guiding me to walk through each and every day.
Picture the glow peeking through, radiating from underneath the door, beckoning you to come… to draw closer and closer to the door.
See yourself with your face up close to the door; you begin to peer through the opening seeing the lights illuminating! You are filled with warmth and hope for the day!
You begin to rise, placing your hand upon the old antique door knob which juts out from the old wooden hewn door – leading to the heavenly places of God, as He calls you forth; you go… you go…
You journey on with expectancy from Him who leads…
On the amazing journey with you,
