Trust God With Your Doors

Sometimes in life God allows doors to close. Depending on the situation, closed doors can be a disappointment, especially when we were expecting things to turn out differently. However, we should not be so eager to rush and try to find another door to open.

Instead, when a door closes, we should use that time to think, pray and continue to be thankful for God’s many blessings. God may use the experience to teach us a valuable lesson, show us a new direction for our lives, or to help us to better understand His character.

When He is ready, He will open up a new door for us to walk through, and we will be equipped to handle whatever is behind that door. But in the meantime, remember He is with you right where you are today.

    I have had situations when I really wanted something, but God closed the door, and I felt discouraged about it. But I think as we grow in our faith and realize He always has our best interest in mind, we can have more faith in this area. When my husband and I were looking to move, I would ask God to close all the wrong doors and open all the right doors. Keeping that in mind helped me to have peace about the homes that we didn’t get. Thank you for this reminder. We all need to keep this in mind daily, because sometimes a door will close suddenly. Thank you for this encouragement! Have a blessed week! 🦋

      Thanks Bridget! I remember when you were house hunting. I am glad God directed you and your husband. I recently closed on a home and it’s a stressful process at times lol. He knows the plans He has for us. Have a blessed week! 🤗

    Thank you for this reminder Dawn. It is natural to feel disappointment when a door closes but we have to trust God for closing that door and plus like you said may a times there is a valuable lesson to be learnt in those situations.

      Yes true! What you said also reminds me that we have to be faithful over small things to be advanced to bigger things. Prayer is key. Blessings!

    That is so true. There have been them times where a door closed on me and I thought it was over but when I thought about the word patience, I remembered that God is with me and when the time is right he will open a door. Great post

    Hi Dawn, I have had doors closed that I wanted to remain open. When I look back, those closed doors were unexpected blessings. I agree that when a door is closed, we need to take time to rest, pray, and be thankful for God’s direction. Have a wonderful week, with your daughter! ❤️💐🌺

    When one door closed another will open. I agree with you that we should not rush to find an open door but wait on God to open one for us. Wonderful reminder. How are you doing? I pray that you are doing much better.

      It’s tempting sometimes to rush but yes we should wait. I think my comments are not going through on your posts, but the one today did go through. I am coming along. Leg still swollen and sore at times but getting better. Thanks for the prayers.

    The more engagement I’m seeing relative to the topic makes me see the connection of Lot and his family. We can say that God was closing the doors of those cities. The angels instructed Lot and his family to leave and not look back. When God closes a door, He wants us to keep our eyes on Him and to not look back at that closed door. Looking back can be a hindrance. We may not end up like Lot’s wife, but we can potentially become stiff in our faith.There is always a plan and purpose in mind when God does a mighty work in our lives. He always has much better in store.

      Thanks! Great point about not looking back. When God closes a door we do not need to look back. We need to move forward and keep our eyes on what God is doing in the present. Like you said, better things are in store!

    Which reminds me that all the Israelites who had blood on their closed doors were spared by the angel of death. Sometimes God can bless you while behind closed doors😆a closed door is a protection from the angel of death. Trust Jesus behind closed doors 😆

    Amen 🙏🏿. Absolutely, my prayer has been “Lord, let your will be done”. Lord direct me only to where you want me to be. I don’t want to be where you haven’t positioned me and use me for your glory. When I look back over the journey, although I didn’t understand it, I can’t look back and smile. I remember working at HomeGoods and at a daycare. I only went to HomeGoods because I needed money to go to Uganda for a mission trip.

    I ended working at HomeGoods for three years. I will always walk and talk with the Holy Spirit concerning how I felt like a Jospeh in prison but I will also remind myself that God knows what He is doing and in time, the Holy Spirit made it clear to me when it was time for me to leave and wow all I can say is thank you Jesus for my customers, coworkers and even the hardships because they shaped me. I’m grateful for the opportunities that God gave me to share His word while there. Working at a daycare, was a blessing but the pay wasn’t good and part of the job was cleaning the bathroom/kitchen which was not even included in the job description but once again God knew what He was doing. Many times as believers, we only want to enter a door that has great pay 💰 and the blessings but sometimes we are positioned in places to be a blessing. We are already blessed. Working at the daycare was challenging but a blessing in its own special way. I got to love on the kids and even prayed for them. I was there on an assignment so I honestly made the most out of it. The pay wasn’t good but I reminded myself that I am here to serve the Lord and His people. Even though I wasn’t getting paid well, God always provided for me and gave me wisdom on how to spend. I’m grateful for the journey and the doors that God closed and I’m looking forward to where He is leading me for I am in the waiting season but He has been good. Thank you for sharing Dawn 🤗🥁

      Thank you for sharing this Karen! It was inspiring. I appreciate your reminder that God sometimes places us in uncomfortable situations to be a blessing. He uses our circumstances to shape us and teach us. It sounds like you were truly blessed in your workplaces inspite of the obstacles! He is the provider of our needs. Your testimony was helpful to me. Praises to our God! 🙌🏿❤️

        Dawn, though the journey hasn’t been easy, I can truly look back and smile. Even when the tears fell, I was reminded that God was with me. God always had a way of reminding that He was right with me. Like gentle reminders of journal with a Bible scripture to someone’s t-shirt, conversations with my customers/coworkers and etc. I mean it was to the point that my coworkers will exchange their numbers with me. It was only God. Honestly the testimony is fully loaded and I am grateful to know that my test was only producing a testimony that will encourage others along their journeys. We are not alone on this road. We have Christ, our living hope 🥁🤗. God bless you 🙌🏿💃🏿💃🏿💃🏿
