    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; Isaiah 64:6 KJVAs the preacher looked over the congregation, pondering his next victim, I sank lower and lower in my chair. He always chose someone at random from the congregation to pray, so everyone tried to avoid ...

He said to them, 'Come after me, and I will make you fishers for men.' They immediately left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18 WEBAs J...

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. And when they had come up to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them. So, passing by Mysia, they went down to Troas. Acts 16:6-8 ESV

    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.
