This year has been filled for me with new doors of opportunity that have forced me out of my place of comfort. Just the first three months of 2018 I have fostered new relationships, developed new gifts, and opened the door to new experiences. And this is just the beginning, my Father has placed more on the agenda for 2018. This is the fulfillment of what I heard from my Father as I asked for direction for the new year of 2018, that this will be the year that we will experience new doors opening for those who have calibrated their agenda with God’s agenda. I often look at things from an additional perspective that includes not only the revelation of the Holy Spirit but the ways of God. So, if this year contain New Doors, then it is helpful to ask: What are the requirements to go from one door to the next? As I vision multiple new doors, therefore, we need to consider: To go through an open door, do you have to close some old doors first?
As I spent time with the Lord and followed the direction of the Holy Spirit this year there has been times that I had to do somethings I had never done. I have had to close some doors on relationships, severe some deep seeded soul ties; die to my desires and my wants to accomplish what God has purposed for me. I have had to come out of my tent of limitation and comfort to go through doors to realize the new, fresh and exciting things purposed for me.
Many of us are kept from our destiny because we refuse to acknowledge exactly who is in control of the doors in our lives. We refuse to acknowledge the purpose for which we were created. Sometimes we want to be anything BUT what God has called us to be. Romans 9:20 says, “Should the thing that was created say to the one who created it, ‘Why have you made me like this?’” I am here to tell you that the more quickly you embrace the obvious purposes of God for your life, the sooner you will see the promise. Doors will open this year as you are willing to walk through them. If we make the transition right, we will not recognize ourselves in the next decade, but God will.
So, ask yourself, what has been in your field of view that has been getting in your way? What is "the thing" that may prevent you from walking through that open door? "The thing" can be described as the “thing (s)” you are currently doing that hinders you from cooperating with the work of the Holy Spirit in your life. That “thing” preoccupies you and diverts your attention away from God. This year, you will turn yet another year older and it's insane to think you can continue to do the same thing and get different results. If you want to live the life God predestined for you—the life of your dreams, allow Him to assist you in getting rid of "the thing in hand," so you can walk thru New Doors with New Liberty and New Revelation as there are wide doors of opportunity that is open for you!
There are new wells waiting for you in your land. But you can’t enter and occupy if you are allowing “things” to block and hinder you passing thru. We are in the time of Isaiah 22:22 where the Lord is releasing the authority to empower, impart, and equip a company of people with the keys of the Kingdom. These keys unlock the door of the Kingdom within His people that will enable them to rule with dominion under an open heaven with the authority of Christ the Lion of Judah. Be brave, tell that “thing” to MOVE, GET OUT OF THE WAY.” Remember it is He, the Lord, Who will lead you out of the tent, through your doors of opportunity to enter and occupy the land of promise He has given you!
