Have you ever prayed for God to open a door for you, but for some reason or another the opportunity didn’t work out & the door didn’t open? In those times sometimes we feel disappointed & wonder why it didn’t work out & it can be easy to get discouraged. But did it ever occur to you that the very same God who opens doors is the same God who closes them?
I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like to wait for things, if I am pursuing something in my life I am ready for it to happen right then & there. I take off at one hundred miles an hour in the direction I am headed, praying for & looking for doors of opportunity to open in my life. Things seem fine as long as doors are opening, I’m feeling like life is good, but then I hit that door that slams in my face & my first thought many times is, “Why did this happen? Why didn’t God open this door?” Maybe you too have felt this way when something didn’t work out in your life. But I am learning more & more that the same God who opens doors in our life is the same God who closes them.
Think about it, God has a perfect plan for our life, we can’t see what lies ahead but God can. God has a destination He is trying to get each one of us to, & only He knows how to get us there. If God answered every prayer & opened every door we prayed for, it’s hard to tell where we would end up. Life is a journey of faith, & if we are putting our Faith in God that means trusting that He is guiding our steps in the right direction, opening the right doors & closing the wrong ones. I look back at a lot of things that happened in my life over the past 6 or 7 years & at the time many of them seemed like huge disappointments when things fell through & didn’t work out, but now I see that God had a plan all along & He had something much bigger in store for more life. Many times God shuts doors in our life because He doesn’t want us to settle for something less that what His plan for our life is. Remember this our dreams are not near as big as the plans God has for us.
 
I thank God for every door He has closed in my life because I know that He was just protecting me & keeping me from going in the wrong direction, I know God has big plans for my life, & I know He is going to guide each one of us through the doors He wants us to walk through. If something doesn’t workout in your life don’t get upset, just trust that God has you in the palm of His hand & that He was the one who closed the door because He has something much better in store for you down the road. So let’s always be thankful for every open door in our life, but let’s also learn to thank God for the doors He closes in our lives too. Better things are in store just down the road, keep your head up!
