My husband bob got a Word from the Lord I would like to share with you today. God gave his this Word at our recent Prayer Meeting to share with the Body of Christ. It has to do with the DOOR.
“My children, this door, this door that you that you keep talking about, this door that you see every Sunday, this door opens- but it opens both ways.
We don’t need just to PUSH, we need to PULL. I want you to to PUSH into areas of service and healing and outreach. I want you to PUSH during worship, and PUSH when You praise me, I want you to PUSH in your relationships.
But you are not alone, I want you to PULL Me closer, I will give you the strength, I will give you the courage and I will give you the wisdom you need. I will provide. I have never failed. PULL Me close, closer than you ever have before. Trust Me, trust Me more than ever before. I cannot fail. I cannot fail, I will not fail you. I AM the Lord your God. PULL my Word, PULL My Word around your heart and PULL My Word around your thoughts. Let it protect and guide you. Let it burst forth newly in your life and the lives around you. I AM the DOOR. I AM the access to the Father.
Keep PUSHING, Keep PULLING, and arise my Royal Children!“
The Door of Opportunity is before you. God has opened for you. But there are adversaries. Will you look at the adversaries or will you look at God’s promise to you?
I know your [record of] works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message and have not renounced or denied My name. -Revelation 3:8 AMP
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” ― Winston Churchill
For a wide door of opportunity for effectual [service] has opened to me [there, a great and promising one], and [there are] many adversaries. – 1 Corinthians 16:9 AMP
“Not knowing when the dawn will come I open every door.” ― Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems
“We often miss opportunity because it’s dressed in overalls and looks like work” ― Thomas A. Edison
“When you do what you fear most, then you can do anything.” ― Stephen Richards
MY PRAYER FOR YOU:
Open our eyes to the open doors. Let us not see the adversaries or the wall of resistance, but let us get up and walk through the door of opportunity. God you gave us these promises. We choose to believe You and Your Word more than what we see. Let us put on our overalls and go to work. We are the Light of the World and the Salt of the Earth. Let us stop looking at our enemies and get to work doing what You have called us to do on this Earth.
Four elements that can lock up a heart, keeping delight out and darkness in. Resentment, the cocaine of the emotions. Anger, the destroyer of joy. Your heritage- the straitjacket of expectation. Declining faith- the marauder of hope.” ~ Max Lucado

(Just a sidenote for those of you who have been in abusive relationships. Forgiveness does NOT mean I will let him hit me again. I had a very twisted view of what Forgiveness meant. I thought that I was supposed to just ‘forgive and forget’ and let him do it again and again – 70 x 7 right? Wrong. My forgiveness towards my abusers meant I would not take revenge, nor put myself or my children in harm’s way, but that I would trust GOD to deal with him. I had to let go of the ending – and walk away. I was not his Savior, I was not going to change him, it was not my job. My warped thinking kept me hostage for a long time. More to come on this area!)
