I KNOW YOUR [RECORD OF] WORKS AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING. SEE! I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU A DOOR WIDE OPEN WHICH NO ONE IS ABLE TO SHUT; I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE BUT LITTLE POWER, AND YET YOU HAVE KEPT MY WORD AND GUARDED MY MESSAGE AND HAVE NOT RENOUNCED OR DENIED MY NAME
(Revelation 3:8 AMP).
Beloved One, I Myself am going before you to open the door wide open through which I want you to enter. Understand that it is not up to you to find your own door and force your way in. It is not up to you to look and find My Will; instead, I will reveal it to you when and while you obey Me.
WHOEVER HAS MY COMMANDS AND OBEYS THEM, HE IS THE ONE WHO LOVES ME. HE WHO LOVES ME WILL BE LOVED BY MY FATHER, AND I TOO WILL LOVE HIM AND SHOW MYSELF TO HIM”
Therefore, obey My Counsel. Hear My Voice. Seek only My Will. Then, follow Me through the door I will show you, as I guide you into all Truth and make My Will known to you.
Know that the door I open for you no one and nothing will be able to shut: not your lack of power, neither your lack of resources, nor your lack of knowledge, hope, or love. You only have to obey…and follow! Along with the open door, I will provide everything else you need.
I WILL LEAD THE BLIND BY WAYS THEY HAVE NOT KNOWN, ALONG UNFAMILIAR PATHS I WILL GUIDE THEM; I WILL TURN THE DARKNESS INTO LIGHT BEFORE THEM AND MAKE THE ROUGH PLACES SMOOTH. THESE ARE THE THINGS I WILL DO; I WILL NOT FORSAKE THEM
Are you using your own strength to push doors open, trying to live God’s Will for your life?
Do not speed ahead of God, searching frantically for an open door. Instead, fall in step behind Him. Obey Him. Follow Him. Let Him show you the way. Then, when you cannot see, He will turn the darkness into Light before you. He Himself will lead you when you are in unfamiliar places. He will make all the rough places smooth. Do not be afraid. He will not forsake you. Just follow Him…from behind.
PRAYER: Abba, I look to You for guidance. I have not renounced or denied Your Name. I have obeyed You and look to You to open the doors. You are the only one who can open doors which no one can shut. I need you to open the doors that have been shut for so long, since I have but little power. Make Your Will known to me. Make the rough places smooth, O Lord. Turn my darkness into Light.
