Life’s journey has many doors. We are constantly opening and entering one door or another. When the opportunity comes, it usually bangs on the door. When God presents an open door to us, it is important that we walk right in. However, how do we know if an opportunity is from God? What are the signs from God telling us that we need to step through in faith? The answer is this: if you don’t feel good about what is on the other side, ask God for direction. The old saying is that if you feel apprehension about doing something, then don’t do it.

It isn’t a matter of if God opens doors of opportunities, it is a matter of whether or not we are willing to walk through that door. Sometimes God opens a door for us, and we aren’t willing to walk through and other times we may not understand what God is doing. But if we are willing to do his will, then we must walk by faith and not by sight.

Making the right choices in life is very important because one wrong choice can cause you a lifetime of miseries. The doors that we choose to enter through can be crucial to our well-being. So, making the right choice is essential. For example, when God deals with us on important issues, he does it one-on-one not as part of the crowd. In fact, being in a crowd can keep you from hearing his voice. The truth is without God’s protective hand on our life, what might seem like a good opportunity maybe a costly decision going forward.

Know that in life there are certain doors you should never open. If you feed the wrong appetite for a day, you can end up struggling with the outcome for a lifetime. Perhaps you have seen the poster that says: Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle; when the sun come up, you had better be running.

The good news for all of us is that regardless of where you are today or what shape you are in, turn to God. He will help you make a comeback in your life. So, as you run, isn’t it a wonderful day when you know that God will be your life’s door to enter. So Never Give Up! Never Give Up! Never Give Up!
