Between the Doors

There is MUCH more to this than will appear. And its personal. A lesson learned in my life and even yesterday. WE all know and love the concept of opening and closing doors. When one door closes, the Lord opens another. I won't rehearse the related bible passages. I'm assuming it's probably on your refrigerator somewhere. My experience has been that when the Lord shuts a door, and before the next one opens, there is sometimes a time lag. Our flesh wants to run back and pound on the closed door begging it to be opened again. We aren't even sure there is an open door anywhere. It is in those interludes that we need to keep our eye on the Gate Keeper .... HE who can and does open the doors in our lives. And closes them. Until I am able to rest in between the doorways... and know that he know not only WHICH door to open, but WHEN... I will always be in turmoil. Rest, Sabbath Day rest is the prescription that is answered when we are between doors. OK. This is a bit obscure... but it's personal. ALL GOOD. And... if I know the Holy Spirit's anointing, this was just for someone who needed to read this who is right now between the doorways. Trust HIM. He knows.

I hear you, Prophet Gene. Even if what was behind that closed door was mostly craptastic, it is still familiar, and we seem to find comfort in the familiar. I always wonder if my banging on that closed door simply delays the opening of the new door, but I just cannot seem to help myself. Waiting is so difficult. Have I been programmed by society to believe I must be doing something, anything, even the wrong things, just for the sake of some action on my part. Why do I not seem to realize that resting and waiting on the Lord, my Gatekeeper, is doing something--the most important something of all! Rest and wait IN the Lord until He flings the door open wide and the Light of His Presence shines forth. Even here in the dark where all the doors are shut and it appears to me as if I am all alone, even then, perhaps especially then, He is with me and waits right along side me to calm my fears while He whispers, I am here, I am always here, I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be still and know I am God, the Great I AM.

two nights ago i had a dream i won't go into much detail,as i don't fully understand it. but i stopped in a doorway one person trying to drag me in a room fear hit i said no. they released my arm there where many threatening and worried looking people in this room.it seemed a confrontation was coming i said i will call my brothers i heard they left you, i knew they had. i looked outside and saw two men some distance away, this helped me today thank you. Earlier today i remember thinking its almost like i am in a cave the only thing to do is rest and yet my flesh screams at times do somthing useless , although i need an all inclusive miracle for my body and life it may be time to rest in the Lord, knowing the times and seasons are His thank you

Most people praise God when He opens a door. Praise Him when He shuts one too. Remember-He's got your back. Selah.
