    He spoke to them many things in parables, saying, 'Behold, a farmer went out to sow. As he sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and devoured them. Others fell on rocky ground, where they didn't have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of earth. ...

The Closed Door

  • And they went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia.

    There was a season in my life where I really caught fire for God. I fasted and prayed for Him to remove anything in my life that was holding me back from being closer to Him. Everything was rosy for about two weeks, and then I was called to the office and laid off. For the first time in my life, I stood in the unemployment line and I was asking, “God where are you?”

    During this time I looked everywhere for work but could find nothing. Finally after an interview one day, this company hired me over the phone and told me to be ready to start on Monday. While driving to work on Monday, I prayed that the Lord would keep me in His will, close any doors that He did not want me to go through, and to open the right one.

    When I got there, they had already hired someone that they thought was me! Eventually, the right door opened somewhere else, I got a job, and led several people to the Lord during my time there.

    Do not fight closed doors. They truly are signs of God’s love for you, a confirmation that He is guiding you, and that He has something better for you right around the corner.
