DON’T STAY STUCK AT A CLOSED DOOR

I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close”.Revelation 3:8

Many times, in our lives we have gotten so stuck at a closed door and struggled to move forward because of the disappointments we have faced and for every trial and tribulation we have faced. It has seemed like every time a door opened in your life it was closed for some reason.

A closed door has caused you to second guess your purpose, your dreams and has caused you to live in doubt. You have felt stuck and not moving forward because mentally you are still living in regret of a closed door instead of moving on to something new.

Holding on to the past or closed door has hindered God’s best from manifesting in your life because you have not made room for something new to happen.

When you stop having expectations from God that something good is going to happen to you, you will always live closed in, with no vision and live in regrets of what woulda, shoulda been, that kind of mindset will keep you stuck and unproductive. God wants to set you free today and His opening new doors for you.

I declare over you today as your entering this new season and month of March 2018 that God is going to deliver you from all the things that have kept you stuck at a closed door. When you are in God’s will He will lead you through those “open” doors and away from those “closed” doors.

For the Bible says, Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert- Isaiah 43:19

When a door closes you have to trust God with all your heart and believe He will see you through because He promises that He will never leave defenseless.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths- Proverbs 3:5-6

When one door closes God will always open a new door for you because He has great plans for you, plans to prosper and give you a future. Your blessing is a head of you not behind you. When a door closes keep moving forward and knocking and a door will open because when God opens a door for you no devil or no man will ever close it.

Continue to ask, and God will give to you. Continue to search, and you will find. Continue to knock, and the door will open for you. Yes, whoever continues to ask will receive. Whoever continues to look will find. And whoever continues to knock will have the door opened for them- Matthew 7:7-8

5 reasons why you should daily renew your life & mind with the word of God

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

1. For the word of God is alive and active. The word of God says, God’s word is alive and active…wow thats a powerful statement and very true. Everything we need help with is all found in the word of God. What are you believing God for? whatever it is, daily renew your mind, heart and soul with the word of God and through it you will get all the help, wisdom and restoration you need in every area of your life.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1. The word is God, there is life in His word, there is healing in his word, there is redemption in God’s word.

2. God’s word is a weapon against the enemy. Have you been tormented in your mind by the enemy. All the enemy does is to remind you of your mistakes, your failures and overwhelm you with to much negativity, stress in your mind that has caused you to be depressed, unhappy and miserable and you feel like a failure. Today they will be no more of that negative thinking because God has given you the power of His word, so when the enemy comes against you with his words respond to him with the word of God and he will flee. Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you..James 4:7. Satan does not have power of you. God has given you all the power and authority within to destroy the enemy through His word . So don’t allow the enemy to scare you  and remember you are the greatest threat to the enemy through the word of God.

3. Renew your mind daily with the word of God so that you will not fall into temptation and you will be protected from the enemies traps against you. And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2. When you renew your mind daily you will be able to discern what’s right and make right decisions in your life because you have trusted God’s word to guide you. By daily reading God’s word your mind is transformed to goodness, you will walk in the spirit not the flesh, because God’s spirit is living within you and you will become more like God and your life and mind will be perfected in Him and whatever you do will be pleasing in His sight.

This is why the enemy fights you so much to keep you away from God’s word by causing a lot of destructions and lies to torment you because he knows in God your are protected, transformed and He has no access to your mind , he will not be able to destroy and destruct you from your destiny. That’s why the more time you spend in the word, the enemy will have no access in your life, you will have no room for stress, sadness, depression because the joy of lord with follow you all the days of your life and God will grant you peace beyond all understanding and His protection will be with you always.

4. Gods word is healing to your heart mind and soul: The word of God says..My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them And health to all their body.Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.…Proverbs 4:20-23. So feed on God’s word daily because from it flow springs of life. So whatever is dead in your life, whatever has not been working, if you have been struggling in your mind and you have been tormented by negative words, read God’s word and allow it to breathe life into every area of your life. God wants to see you whole, restored and lacking nothing. You can have everything you have been believing God for, all you have to do is tap into His word and He will reveal and give you the revelation knowledge that you need to live a victorious life in him.

5. The word of  God will accomplish what it promises. God is not man that He should lie, If God told you something will happen wait on Him and it will happen. In Isaiah 55:11 it says, “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” God sent His word to accomplish His perfect will in your life. If God makes a promise to you He will fulfill it in His own time. His time is perfect, His all knowing God and He has your best interests at heart. If you trust and depend on His word, He will fulfill every promise He ever made you remember His delays are not His denials. He is faithful to his word.

So today put on the Armor of God Ephesians 6:10-17

 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit,which is the word of God.

So i encourage you today to read God’s word, It will transform, empower, grant you wisdom and change your life.
