Speaking of doors............the famous scene of Jesus, standing and knocking at the door in Revelation 3:20 has conjured up all kinds of thoughts and interpretations.
I agree with you - we see the door, and ask GOD TO OPEN IT FOR US. But, the fact is, Jesus is on the other side, knocking, waiting for US to open it and let Him in to us.
One of Jesus' favorite sayings in the Bible is, "Come unto Me............".
And one of the closing verses in the Bible = Revelation 22:17, " And the Spirit and the bride say,"Come". And let the one who hears say,"Come." And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.".
Grace and Peace.
Thank you all for your words. ELLA, I'm so glad if I helped and definitely keep putting your trust in God and obeying His word. I as well am growing and learning each day and with some recent events I am seeing more and more of His work in my life. There may be those valleys we fall into at times but God is with us in the valleys and always takes us back up to the mountain tops. I am seeing more and more the motivation, the discernment and the strength that he adds to me with every day that passes. Even on my worst days he is still working on a plan for my life and placing doors for me to simply see, open and walk through. I have thought of what Thomas posted to this thread and it helped me to see even more how as a human being I can over think, and complicate things when it could be so much simpler if I would learn to have patience, stay on my knees in prayer and just try to improve my walk with Him each day and let Him do the planning, and providing the answers to my prayers. I too will continue to learn how to listen and recognize His answers without being blind to the doors He has sat right in front of me and I don't see because Im so busy looking in the wrong places. God bless you.
