Before An Open Door

doorLast time I told you about Alycia’s choice to do a difficult task. She knocked. God opened the door. She stepped boldly and courageously through the door and into the opportunity.

If I’m honest with myself, I have this sense that lately I spend a lot of time in front of open doors.

Jesus said, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7)

But those open doors are pretty much useless if I refuse to step through.

Stepping through requires trust. Stepping through is the decision point, the commitment, the place I stop talking and start doing. Stepping through is where I engage with my faith.

So why do I hesitate?

It’s not the door I expected. I knocked on the red door. I was pretty sure it was the right one. But the blue door opened.

I don’t know what’s on the other side. I had the other door all figured out, but this one is totally unpredictable.

I’m afraid.

I need more time. I need to seek wisdom and advice. I need to pray more. I need more discernment. I need more planning or finances.

I knocked. God opened the door. Jesus says He’ll step through this God-provided opportunity with me. “Take courage. It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

Mostly I don’t need more time. What I need is faith and trust.

I’m tired of sitting in front of doors God’s opened. Time to roll through.

I need to decide.

You? Any open doors in front of you right now?
