Just a brief thought I wanted to write down and think about.
We have all heard the cliche, if one door shuts, dont worry, another will open.
I dont think thats true.
Maybe God wants us to smash down the closed door. Maybe the door is put there by someone who does not have our or God’s best interests at heart.
Maybe we give up too quickly and too easily, citing God’s will, when in fact its us being lazy or wanting things to be easy.
“Let go and Let God” , what a crock. Life is hard and tough sometimes. We dont get what we want, or even what we think God wants for our lives. Sometimes we get the exact opposite of what we think God would want for us, and it does not seem fair.
I dont see Jesus stopping when the going got tough. I see him going and being flogged to death for what He believed in. No easy road for that Warrior. If that was one door shutting, Jesus allowed it to slam shut in His face.
There was no easy door opened for Him to go through, and I wonder if there are many easy doors opened for us.
