*Identifying the proper door* - Rev Douglas Ncube
Sunday, 5 July 2020
*I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.* - Revelations 3:8
Let us consider these:
1. Door of opportunity in the midst of impossibilities,
2. Door to achieve something in the Lord,
3. Opening the door in the midst of impossible circumstances,
4. The breakthrough that gives immediate options.
When the Israelites were slaves in Egypt, they were surrounded by impossibilities. They thought they had the opportunity for freedom.
Suddenly, with Pharaoh’s army advancing behind them and the Red Sea blocking their escape ahead of them, the opportunity seemed to fade away.
It is so with us. Doors of opportunities come and seem to fade away. We must identify the correct doors in order to access the opportunities meant for us.
In *Daniel 3:25* the three were behind the door of fire. Yet God found and saved them. Regardless of your circumstances do not miss an opportunity.
The scene at Calvary, the cross when the Lord was crucified, is the door to our salvation.
Esther did not qualify to be a queen. There were others competing with her. But God opened a door for her, and the king showed her favour.
At times you may undervalue yourself, when the Lord has anointed you.
God identified exactly which prison door Peter was locked up behind and saved him.
Opportunities may not always be there. They appear for a season and disappear. Let us use them when they are there. Let us hear and understand God’s Word so that we can identify the doors with the opportunities meant for us. Let us take the opportunities that fall for us.
In Egypt, it was the blood of the lambs on the doors. Today, the only blood we need is that of Jesus. If his blood is smeared outside of your door, the angel of death will pass by.
No one knows whether there will be another wave of covid-19. Regardless, the blood of Jesus, our door to salvation, will always protect us. Brothers and sisters, let us ask the Lord to show us the right door. Amen.
