Proverbs 3:5-6 says” Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
I Desiray am thankful that God does not give me what I thought I wanted.
How do you respond when God closes a door? As Christians sometimes, we only see what we want to see when it comes to blessings. How come we do not see the blessing in a closed door? Serving the Lord, I have to say that God does not always opens doors for me. He has literally closed some doors in my life.
There were times when I would be so upset at God because I just could not figure out why He would close the door at something that I wanted and prayed about? Over the course of my journey with the Lord, He has revealed to me the importance of Him closing doors.
I can say that I am thankful that He did not give me what I thought I wanted. Sometimes God has allowed me to see the reason behind Him closing doors.
I know with in my heart that when God closes doors, He has a reason. We may not always like it; we may not always understand why. But one thing I do know and that is this. God sees what I cannot see. And if what I am wanting is going to disrupt my life with chaos and cause a wedge between me and God then I do not want it.
You and I will never know our true hearts, we think we know what we want. But all too often when our heart wants something, we pray in our emotions believing that what we desire is worthy of waiting for. Which means we are waiting on the wrong motives.
Maybe today you are wondering why God shut that door? Instead of being overcome with worrying why the door was shut how about asking God what was my motive for wanting it?
There is a blessing in having those doors shut by God.
Have a blessed Day in the Lord family!
