Have you had your Joy Juice today? It’s a great decision….walk through the door that leads to joy in the Lord!
In Revelation 3:8, Jesus says to the church in Philadelphia, “I have placed before you an open door.” If we continue reading, we will see that He did not specify which door. Have you been there? Believing that God is directing you toward a different door, but not knowing WHICH door to walk through? We certainly don’t want to miss His best for us, but often when we try to figure it out, we’re really not sure which door is best.
Could it be that we are leaving something out of the decision-making process…like PRAYER and the desire to search for wisdom on the pages of God’s Word? As author John Orberg reminds us, “’OPEN DOOR’ isn’t a phrase to describe just any opportunity. An open door is an opportunity provided by God, to act with God and for God.” Do we see our open doors in that way?
Ortberg goes on the explain, “In the New Testament, James says that if any of us lacks wisdom, we should ask God.. He doesn’t say we should ask which door to go through but for the tools to choose wisely. God’s primary will for your life is not the achievements you accrue; it’s the person you become.”
Are you becoming a person of joy because of the wisdom you are seeking from God? Walk through that door with God-confidence!
