Joyce Meyer: God Opens and Shuts Doors

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 we cannot open.

I spent many years trying to organize things I wanted to do in life. The result was frustration and disappointment. But I found that if we depend on God, He will give us favor and make things easy for us when we seek Him and His perfect timing, He leads 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. Hear from Him and you will not be deceived.

  1. I totally can relate to what you mentioned about trying to organize life on your own. When I tried to accomplish things on self-effort I always ended up disappointed and confused. All things started to line up once I quit and depended on God to direct my life. Thanks for sharing!
