Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
Memorise: I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. John 10:9.
Read: John 10:7-9
To enter into a house or a car, it is expected that you use the door. Any other mode of entry is seen as illegal and makes its user a criminal of some sort. What then is a door? A door is the boundary between in and out. When the door is shut, those who are inside stay indoors while those who are outside stay out. In Matthew 25:1-12, Jesus tells us the parable of the 10 virgins. As soon as the bridegroom arrived, the wise virgins went in with him and the door was shut. It is only when a door is open that those inside can go out and those outside can come in. The door needs to open so that all your blessings can come in, and every plant God has not planted in your life can go out. There may be several other doors but Jesus Christ is the Door. He is the door that grants you access. He makes entry into any area possible. In Exodus 14:15-28, God instructed the Israelites to move forward when they stood before the red sea. Confused, they looked up to Him, as they did, the Door opened a door through the red sea for them. Are you at a point of decision, not knowing whether to go forward or backward? Have you reached a point you consider your wits end and know no where else to go? The Door will open up a door for you today.
When the Door met the man who was born lame in Acts 3:1-8, He opened the door of progress to him and the man began to make tremendous progress. There is also a door of healing. According to Exodus 15:26, anyone who needs healing can pass through the Door- Jesus. Promotion also has a door. If that door is not opened to you, you will remain where you have been. If men fail to open this door to you, you can meet the Door and go through Him. In 1 Samuel 16:11-13, we read of David. This youth never in his wildest dreams thought he could be a king as there had never been one from his family before. Yet, because he was linked with the Door, the door of promotion was opened to him. What door is refusing to open to you presently? Through the influence of the Door, it shall open to you this season.
Ask the Door to give you access into the areas or realms you have found difficult to enter.
