God is opening doors that no one else is capable of opening. Doors to truth, insight, growth, grace, and new life are being opened every moment of the day. Doors that appear to be sealed shut are swinging open by His mighty hand. Stones are being rolled away from burial sites and life is pouring out. Where there was once only death and decay, we are now living in abundance.
Doors that were locked and impenetrable, with keys that had been thrown away, are now easily accessible, through which the light of Christ may flow. Each day Christ is unlocking the doors to our hidden chambers that hold our secrets, losses, pain, shame, and regrets. When we cross over the thresholds of these dungeon rooms, we see our concealed caches no longer hold any power. All the things from our past that we have tried to bury behind bolted and heavily guarded doors can’t survive in the presence of Christ. They are relics of our past lives and don’t belong in our new lives with Christ.
God is also closing doors that should not be open. Doors to abusive relationships, negative thought patterns, and addiction are being closed. These are the doors that only God can reopen. Just as wonderfully, doors are now open to us that seemed as though they were not ever meant for us to walk through. The doorway to recovery is one of these such doors. Our God has taken this one off its hinges, and our recoveries will never be closed off from us again. God has made an abundant pathway through these doors that only He could have opened, and He has barricaded forever the ones He doesn’t want us to reopen.
