Have you had those times in life when you have prayed to God about something, yet you’re confused about something. As long as I can remember, I’ve always been uncertain if God has opened a door for me or not!
Just because an opportunity presents itself and looks good doesn’t necessarily mean it is from God. Likewise, just because an open door looks a little uncertain doesn’t mean you shouldn’t walk through it.
I’m not sure if an opportunity is really an open door from God or not. I don’t want to miss those open doors because I was afraid to walk through them. But I also don’t want to take every opportunity that comes along, thinking it is from God and it isn’t.
My sweet mother would always remind to have faith and trust in God, not in yourself!
- A door that God opens will never contradict His Word. (James 1:13-14) He will not open a door that would have us to compromise or be disobedient in order to enter through the door.
- The door that God opens will be accompanied by confirmation. (Matthew 18:15-16) God will sometimes confirm by using others, whether they are verses form God’s Word, or getting advice from a pastor. Praying and seeking Godly counsel can also tell if that “open door” is truly from God.
- The door God opens will require you to depend on Him. He will not give us something that will make us believe we no longer need him. (Matthew 6:33)
If we know that we need Him to help and lead us, it’s likely that God is calling us to do something. We also must have faith!
Without faith it is impossible to please God. – Hebrews 11:6
I believe it is my lack of faith of myself that gets in the way and I second guess and that leads to confusion. I want to test my faith and I want to please God. A lot of people feel the same way, I believe.
Pray for me to trust in our God and myself. I’ll let ya know how it turns out! How can I pray for you?
