“He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”
So often as Christians we tend to get caught up in feelings of insecurity and anxiousness towards life that we forget that the Lord has a specific plan and He is always in control. We must remember that the same God who performed countless miracles is at work in our lives every day and surely He who was able to provide food for His people in the wilderness and part the red sea has the same power to keep a door in our lives open as He desires and stop the doors He has closed from being reopened. When we realise the power and control that God has over our lives as Christians, we learn that it is not us or our natural ability that opens and closes the doors in our lives but rather the supernatural power of an almighty God. We can count it such a joy that we can shift our focus off the natural things and put that focus on the Lord Himself as Christians we can then stress less and rejoice more because we serve a God who is faithful and has COMPLETE control of every situation we face- big or small.
Please help us when we become overwhelmed and find it hard to have faith. May you remind us that you are always in control regardless of how unstable the world around us is. May we never lose heart when doors in our lives close but rather be grateful that there is something else you have for us as you are the one that opens and closes Lord. Above all else thank you for your faithfulness in our lives.
