IT CAN’T BE GOD!
Text: Proverbs 14:12
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
I need to let you know this…
God will not open a door to you, and somewhere along the way, he shuts it in your face. What kind of God is that?
God cannot open a door to you that the end of it will be destruction, disappointment, shame or calamity. Haba! Read Job 34:10-12.
If you ever go through any door, and it ends in any of these, it definitely wasn’t God that opened it…You assumed it was him…And assumption is not faith…Because faith will always end in victory – 1 John 5:4.
Again, if indeed God opens a door to you, or leads you through a certain door, it is because there’s good waiting for you, not just at the end, but all the way through it.
So, if anything goes wrong, and that door gets shut to you, or your hopes are dashed, or things didn’t work out as you expected…then you probably mismanaged things, by doing things your own way…or by allowing the flesh to have the better of you, instead of relying on the leading of the Holy Spirit – Romans 8:6.
I’d also like you to know that whatever door God opens to you, his plan is that it will lead to yet another open door, and another, and another. Yes!
Because “I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.” – Read Ecclesiastes 3:14.
Sometimes we allow carelessness and foolishness in the way we handle God’s blessings and open doors in our lives, and then justify our disappoint with excuses…or blaming someone else for why things didn’t work out as we expected – Read Proverbs 19: 3 (Good News Bible); Proverbs 19:16 (NKJV); Psalm 107:17.
This is my challenge to you: if this God is really your God, and Father, settle down and begin to pay the price to know and understand the way he works; understand his unfailing love for you, and his plans and desires for you – Read Jeremiah 9:23-24; Psalm 1:1-3; Psalm 52:8 (NLT).
This is very important. So that the devil doesn’t keep messing with your head and taking advantage of you. Okay?
Do have a wonderful day, in Jesus name!
