R U Grateful for a Closed Door?

Proverbs  3:5-6 says” Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

As Christians sometimes, we only see what we want to see when it comes to blessings. For instance, we say things like ” when God opens a door, no man can shut.” And that my friend is so very true, but what about when God closes a door? How come we don’t see the blessing in that? Serving the Lord I have to say that God doesn’t always opens doors. He has literally closed some doors in my life.

There were times when I would be so upset at God because I just couldn’t figure out why He would close the door at something that I wanted and prayed about? Over the course of my journey with the Lord, He has revealed to me the importance of Him closing doors. I can say that I am thankful that He didn’t give me what I thought I wanted. Sometimes God has allowed me to see the reason behind Him closing doors.

Why is it that you and I are grateful after the fact instead of the moment it happens?

Maybe today you are wondering why God shut that door that you wanted open? I want you to look at the situation from God’s standards and I promise you this my friend. You will be ever grateful that He closed that door for you.

Have a blessed Day in the Lord family!

  1. I once had a door closed when I was in a relationship. The Holy Spirit had warned me about the guy I was dating, and even though I was sad when the relationship ended, I had immense peace.
    I’m sorry to say that years later, that same guy has been exposed for physically abusing his wife beginning from a couple years in their marriage. He has been also been exposed for doing other illegal things, which my eyes were blinded to from way back in the days when we were dating.
    However, even though I thank God for that closed door, I pray that this guy would totally surrender to God as well as forgive his wife, and that he be reconciled with his wife and daughters.

    1. Sandy I want to say thank you for sharing your testimony. And though things have gone bad for this young man the best thing you can do is keep him before the Lord.

  2. So many times God has closed doors on things I thought I wanted, and then later I was thankful he did. You make a great point that we should be thankful at the moment he closes the door and trust his plan for our life.

    1. Amen. It’s not easy for us to do. For we still want to do things our way. This is when that scripture comes reminding us to count it all joy. Amen.

  3. This is a great read and so very true. It has taken me a long time (and a good many doors being closed) to understand and appreciate the LORD for shutting the doors. I finally realized that the Lord knows better than me, and He truly always has my best, my good, in mind. You’re right, though, it is hard to see the blessing in shut doors especially when we have prayed and believed, but it is faith and trust that has taught me to follow His lead and not lean on my own understanding. Thanks for sharing!😊

    1. Thank you for sharing your experiences. Jesus really does love us more than I think we could ever imagine.

      Have a bless day today. We 🙏🙏
