Hello Highly favored people,
What do you do when one door closes?
So many times we’ve heard before that when one door closes, another one opens. And with all my faith that I owe to God, I believe that. I believe that a close door is as better as an open one. It’s a blessing as much as an open door.
“Every Exit is an Entry Somewhere.”
But what if it take so long for another entry to show up? What if after one door closed, the other one that supposed to be open isn’t opening yet? What do you do when you’re in between doors?
I have a little problem with SOME preachers and I don’t mean just the ones in profession. For I do believe, each of us is a preacher of some sort And I don’t mean this to bash anyone. Some preachers are so good at giving hope and encouragement to people who have just undergone a downfall, disappointment or a failure and I thank them for that. We were always told that we don’t have to worry because another door is about to open.
They seem to forgot to tell us that it’s hell in the hallway. Doors aren’t usually built together. NO, THEY ARE NOT. There’s always a wall between them. A stair, a wall, a house, a building, a street, a highway, a whole town, a whole country. There can be anything between doors and we have to get through them first before we reach the open door.
I’m sorry if this isn’t your usual encouragement but it’s the truth. Sure God will open a door for you after that closed door.He already set it but it wouldn’t be given to you just after you exit that closed door behind you. No, that rarely happen.
But even with this truth, we should always set our minds and hearts that there will be an open door for us somewhere. Don’t lose hope. I’m telling you this not-so-encouraging truth because I want you to be prepared, because when I went in between doors I wasn’t prepared.
I gave up.
You see, it’s in the hallway that most people often lose hope and give up. It’s in the between doors when people lose faith and think that what they heard about open doors was wrong.
Why, because the hardest part of believing is waiting.
In the hallway, you’ll experience everything worse than you could have imagine. You’re about to get the best blessing you’ll ever have(so far), don’t expect it to be easy. You’re about to be elevated, you have to take the stairs honey. You’re about to witness the greatest miracle you will ever see, be sure to deal with the mess first.
Be prepared. Be ready. Know that the hardships you’re going through after the fall and before your success is normal. They don’t mean that nothing good is waiting for you in the end. They might be invisible yet and seems impossible looking at your present circumstances. THERE IS ALWAYS GOOD TO THEM THAT WAIT. Be patient.
“But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.” Romance 8:25
Remember that you are not alone and that there is a God willing to help you.
“I am the Lord your God; I strengthen you and tell you, Do not be afraid; I will help you.”
Keep in mind how mighty he is;
“Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.”
Don’t give up when you’re in between doors. Keep running or walking ’til you reach your next door. Until God opens your next door, keep going. It actually doesn’t if you walk or run or climb towards it, just keep going. You can even crawl if you must.
God bless you guys.
