Walk Through The Door

February 21, 2011

A wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. 1 Corinthians 16:9

Fulfilling God’s call on our lives elicits a response from the enemy. The devil doesn’t mind when we are blasé about our existence, but when we step up in obedience, there will be opposition.

Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. For yet in a very little while, He who is coming will come, and will not delay. But My righteous one shall live by faith; and if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him. Hebrews 10:35-38

When God opens a door of opportunity, we are often tempted to halt at the door and throw away our confidence. An open door of effective service means hard work and greater responsibility.

But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul. Hebrews 10:39

Get a tenacious attitude and step forward in faith (Romans 1:17). Get your mind activated with the thoughts of God (get in the Word!) to get backbone and vision. Refuse to be an idle dreamer but instead press through the door. There are many souls at stake.

Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass. 1 Thessalonians 5:24

God bless you!
