JESUS IS YOUR DOOR

"I am the door.  If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture." JOHN 10:9

"As Christians, we talk about God ""opening doors"" to us as a means of His revealing His will.  What we are asking God to do is engineer our circumstances to match what we think would be best. The problem is that we misunderstand what the door is.  Jesus said He is the door.  Circumstances are irrelevant, for no one can shut the door that Jesus opens (Rev. 3:8).  If you have substituted activity for your relationship with Christ, then circumstances can disrupt your activity.  When the activity is hindered, you may assume the door has been closed.  Yet, if Christ is the door in your life, He will guide you into every experience of Him that He wants, and there will be nothing that people can do to stop Him.

When Paul and Silas were thrown into prison at Philippi, it appeared that the door to their ministry in Greece had been violently and firmly closed (Acts 16:22-24).  The reality of their situation, however, was that their Lord had opened a door of ministry to a previously unreached group of men in prison.  The Philippian jailer and his household would become a significant nucleus of the new church in Philippi.  From a human perspective, a door had been closed; from God's perspective, Paul and Silas continued to minister exactly where God wanted them to.

When people oppose us, we can become discouraged or worry about what others are doing to us.  We may even try to take matters into our own hands to accomplish what we think God wants.  This reveals that we do not really believe Jesus is the door for our lives.  If we did, we would be assured that through Christ we have access to everything He wants to do in and through us."
