Doors and More Doors

Door 5


Heavenly Doors…

What are the God-given doorways in your life?


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,

 LORD, how I love you, how I love your WORD!

Thank you so much for Your instruction, which is beautiful. You say to “shut the door.” This is sacred – good and holy, keeping all of the distractions away, uniting us – closer – deeper – granting wisdom and understanding, along with guidance and then peace.

Just what I need, what I yearn for – a closeness with You, your people – with me. I am blessed by Your love for me, Your desire is woven into me by Your creative hand, to be close – so close that there are no gaps – no room for wedges.

This is the place – the “closed door place” where I come to You, sometimes crawling on my hands and knees in desperation – thirsty and parched in great need, great pain – even great fears – with worry and needing Your wisdom, direction, comfort and peace that only You can provide.

Other times I come for prayer for the many needs of others, beseeching You to hear me for the sake of their needs and You listen – I trust. I trust. I trust.

Sometimes I simply come to glorify You, to praise you for who You are, for the miracles done in the lives of other and in my own life. To sing praises for my dear husband and my daughters and my sons-in-law, for my grands!

I thank you that you invite me to come to you and shut the doors to the outside world and open your heavenly doors, granting me the ability to enter into Your throne room!  Though your physical presence is “unseen” I still see You!

I see you in others working miracles, I see you in Your creation of the earth! I see You in all of your people, in all of the various flowers and trees and butterfly’s and moths and insects and animals and sunsets and sunrises – in the clouds – in the smiles, in the eyes of humans – in the eyes of cats and dogs…  I see you God – I love what I see.

I FEEL your presence, I experience you. I feel your love.

I experience your heart, your joy, your laughter, as well as your pain. Though I am aware that all of your emotions must run much wider and deeper than mine – for if I “felt” all that you felt I surely could not comprehend – nor handle it all… You are my God & King!

Your word in verse 6 says “you see what is done in ‘the secret place'” – thank you for seeing – thank you for allowing me to come to the “secret place.”

And if that’s not enough, You are a God who loves to reward us – especially when we grow closer to you – that in and of itself is a reward. I treasure this sacred gift of yours – given straight from your heart to mine.

Let me be one who always longs to come and shut the door to the world and open the heavenly doors in which You stand – waiting for me to enter.

Oh the majestic visions in my mind – you reveal so much to me! Your places of holiness are unmatched. I think about people living in chaos – opening all the wrong doors – trying to gain some semblance of satisfaction – but they fail to open the door to Your “Secret Place” – the place of prayer, where they find you and find answers.

If the world would just Open the Doors of their Bibles, they would find YOU! AND in You is all they long for… and them some! Oh LORD, I pray for all those that are seeking and searching… I pray that they stop opening the doors to excess and open the doors to moderation, closing the doors to addictions… and open the doors to peace, to settle down, be still and find your love. Stop opening the doors to “Keeping up with the Jones’s slow down – pray – go to THE SECRET PLACE. This is the REAL SECRET! The Secret to finding all that they look for and long for, it’s the place where there is freedom, the SECRET PLACE of abundance, overflow and rewards!

O LORD, that is the answer, that it THE SECRET! The Real Secret is no secret at all! Your Word is out there for everyone to know and read and come to know you. That’s it, so simple.

9-9In times when you feel like there is chaos all around, or when you are in a place of struggle, fear, doubt, or confusion, take time to go within, to the Spirit living within.
Ask for the sacred guidance that is always available to you, ask to be guided.
Recognize that you have an internal knowing; you have the Holy Spirit living and dwelling within, Ready to guide and direct you. Ready to grant clarity, and wisdom.

The Holy Spirit is All Knowing, All Wisdom.  The Holy Spirit has been with God since Day One. Stand in awe with me at the Wisdom and Agelessness of the Spirit!

You have decisions to make, powerful choices at hand.  Realize that you can either tap into the life giving force and the power of the Spirit, or you can cut off the power of the Spirit at any given moment.

Say this with me, out loud; I have the power and freedom of choice… I can struggle with answering these questions myself. OR I can go within myself, turning to the Amazing, Sacred, All Knowing Ageless Spirit within me and allow for the Spirit to guide me. In this place of choice, I choose to take a moment, get into a sacred space, get quiet and begin a moment of prayer. I unchain my heart and open my mind to receive the blessed direction from the Spirit of Wisdom within.

Now, breathe in deeply… Breathing in the Power of The Spirit…

Exhaling all negative thoughts…
I breathe in the Sacred…
I breathe out all fear…
I breathe in sacred faith…
I exhale, releasing all chaos…
I relax… trust… listen…

I am open to The Voice of Knowledge…  I hear the plans from Divine Wisdom.
As I listen with an open heart and an open mind, I am guided to see the words You have for me.
I hear Your Words, I hear your Guidance…
I thank you for providing me with my perfect solution!
The powerful and loving Spirit leads me and makes my crooked path straight and I rejoice!
I discern what to do, and I carry on with God-confidence.

I will escort the blind down roads they do not know, guide them down paths they’ve never seen.  I will smooth their passage and light their way.  I will indeed do it—they are abandoned no more.” Isaiah 42:16 – The Voice

“If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.” Galatians 5:25
