All Shut Doors be Wide Open

“I will go before you and will level the mountains, I will break down the gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places…” Isaiah 45: 2, 3

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is a Faithful God. He is a God who keeps his Word. This awesome God of Israel gives you this promise for this month. He says that he is going to level every mountain that blocks your way; he is going ahead of you breaking down every shut door of opportunity, cutting through every hurdle that blocks your good health and prosperity. What is that you need to do?

Be Bold & Persistent:

Once there was a man whose friend journeyed from a far off place to see him. His visit was so unexpected and was past midnight that this man was in a pleasant shock. Eager to refresh his wearied and tired friend, he looked for food or refreshments in his house and found nothing. With nothing to place on the table for his friend and with all shops closed in the neighborhood, this man rushed to his neighbor‟s house. The neighbor and his family were fast as sleep and the house door was shut. Without any hesitation this man rang the bell. The neighbor woke up from the sleep but was reluctant to come to the door. The neighbor thought that the person at the door would give up and leave after some time. On the other hand this man never left. He persistently rang the bell. The neighbor even yelled from inside for the person to leave, but this man never gave up. Finally the neighbor came up to the shut door, opened it and provided the man with whatever he asked for. We read about this incident in Luke 11: 5-8. It is very clear that the man‟s boldness and persistence caused the shut door to open up and get all that he needed. Jesus says this parable and encourages us through these powerful words, “Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks the door will be opened”. Opening shut doors is not in someone else hand, it is very much in your hand. You need to be bold in your seeking and persistent in your knocking. Never give up, never lose heart, but be persistent in all your pursuits. The doors will open, new opportunities are just there. Act in confidence and boldness. God will meet all your needs and make everything beautiful.
