Doors You Can’t Open

Sep 10, 2022

Today's Scripture

1 Samuel 2:21, NKJV
And the LORD visited Hannah, so that she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. Meanwhile the child Samuel grew before the LORD.

Today's Word

In 1 Samuel 1, Hannah was very discouraged that she couldn't bear a child, whereas her husband's other wife had child after child. She couldn't understand it, but the Scripture says that the Lord had closed Hannah's womb. Sometimes we're frustrated and upset over a door that God has closed. But when you understand that God is in control of all the doors, you can live at rest, knowing that at the right time, the right doors will open. In answer to Hannah's passionate prayers, the Lord not only gave her a baby boy named Samuel but an abundance of siblings.

Maybe you're frustrated over what's not been working out, discouraged over dreams that haven't come to pass. The truth is that you can't open a door that God has closed. Do your part to pray and believe, then trust God as your doorkeeper. If Hannah were here today, she would tell you that a closed door is not permanent. At the right time, things are going to suddenly change in your favor.

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You that You know best when it comes to the things I desire and ask You for. Thank You that You are the doorkeeper, and that You'll take me through the things I don't understand. Help me to see that even though closed doors may not feel good, they are all good. In Jesus' Name, Amen
