Today’s Joyce Meyer 2 February 2018 Daily Devotional
Topic: God Opens and Shuts Doors
Key Verse: Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is within you, whom you have [received as a gift] from God, and that you are not your own [property]? – 1 Corinthians 6:19
Message: There are critical times in our lives when we especially need to know we are hearing clearly from God. It isn’t always easy to know His voice from that of our own emotional reasoning. But I know from experience that God can open doors of opportunity that no one can close, and He can also close doors that we cannot open. (Joyce Meyer 2 February 2018 Daily Devotional)
I spent many years trying to make things happen that I wanted to do in life. The result was frustration and disappointment. But I found that when we depend on God, He will give us favor and make things easy for us as we seek Him and His perfect timing. He leads us one step at a time. If you take one step forward in the wrong direction, He will let you know before you go too far.
Be aware that His thoughts are above your thoughts. He sees the end from the beginning. All His ways are right and sure. He knows what makes sense for your life and He can make it happen. Listen to His voice, and you will not be deceived.
Prayer: God, I trust You to open the right doors in my life and shut the wrong ones. Even when I don’t know what to do, I have faith that I can hear from You and follow Your will. Amen!
