How do you learn to trust GOD?
How do you learn to take a leap of faith and walk through the door that God has provided for you?
The door that will lead you into greatness… The door that was made specifically for you….the door that holds the key to unlock your future.
God is none other than the God of our PAST, PRESENT, and FUTURE.
He is above ALL things and he will never let us down, so why is it so hard to trust him?
JEREMIAH 29:11- FOR I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU SAYS THE LORD, PLANS TO PROSPER YOU AND NOT HARM YOU, PLANS FOR A HOPE AND FUTURE. (NIV)
This scripture tells us that God has plans for each of us!
Plans to prosper us and not harm us.
We allow our carnal flesh to take over and tell us that we can control any situation on our own, our own way, and in our own time.
Am I right or am I right?
But that just is not true. If we try to do everything on our own without God, we will walk through the wrong door. We will run back through the door to the things that were holding us down and harming us, all because that is the easy door to choose.
BUT WE ARE CALLED TO DO HARD THINGS!!!
The devil wants you to try and take care of everything on your own because he is manipulating you into believing that you can’t get out of the situation that you are in. He wants to keep you feeling sad, lonely, defeated, depressed, suicidal, anxious, fearful, and powerless!
If you are feeling this way…the devil has you right where he wants you!
If you are not relying on God to take care of your circumstances that are beyond your control, then you are simply listening to the evil one and walking alone through the wrong door.
All of those negative feelings are not from God and they will eventually destroy you…
The conniving devil is controlling your mind and therefore you will not walk through the “right” door if you continue to let him control your life and not God!
You have to fight the devil off with the weapons given to us by God…
~Each day you have to refresh and renew your relationship with God.
~You have to study and read his word each and every day
~You have to spend intimate time with him soaking in his presence
~You have to speak against the things of the world that try to get you down.
~You have to PRAY, PRAY, AND PRAY SOME MORE!
~You have to praise him for all that he has done for you!
~You have to remove yourself from things that are keeping you away from God. (AKA “idols” in your life)
Anything that you are putting before God is an idol and it needs to be removed.
The only way that you will be able to walk through the right door is if you relinquish full control over your life to God.
He has control over all things and he wants to give you rest from all of your burdens…
MATTHEW 11:28-2 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (NIV)
Until you give everything to God, you will continue to be full of misery and your circumstance WILL NOT CHANGE!
God is calling you to walk through the right door.
Are you going to take that leap of faith, grab his hand and walk through with him today?
