Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
What door are you facing right now? What has God called you to do that you have been afraid to do? The open doors God sets before us oftentimes lead to places where we don’t want to go!
Maybe that’s what you are facing right now. The Lord has shown you a door that He has opened and that He wants you to walk through—yet you really don’t want to. I’ve been there, and I can honestly tell you that as you step out in prayer and in faith, the Lord will bring you to the other side, and it will become a blessing to you.
The Lord doesn’t set out the whole plan for us at one time. He has us step out in faith and only gives us what is needed to take the next step. That’s how the Lord works. It really comes down to prayer and faith. Prayer is vital—you need to be in constant communication with the Lord to know where He is leading you and what He is saying to you! You need to be in His Word as well.
Finally you need to trust God. As much as we think we know what is best for our lives, the truth is that we don’t! Left to our natural selves, we have no clue what is best for ourselves, let alone anyone else. However, God knows you intimately. He made you. He knows how you are wired. In fact, God knows you better than you know yourself. He loves you, and He died for you. His plan for your life is good. The Lord is worthy of your trust!
Will you trust Him as you walk through your open door?
Dear Lord, we pray for the strength and courage to walk through the open door You have place before us. Prepare us now for what You have for us. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
