Closed and Open Doors

by | Oct 4, 2023 | Vital Life Application Devotions

Habakkuk 2:3 “For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.”


Do not give up despite the closed doors in life.

Picture a big white house with steps leading up to a big door. Open the door and see a long hallway with many closed doors off it on either side. Walk down the hallway, maybe expecting a door to open. None of the doors will open. You have a choice. You could sit down and give up, or you could continue to walk down the hallway. As you continue to walk down, you see near the end another short hallway just off the main one, with an open door to walk through. Had you stopped and given up, you would never have seen the open door further down.

That is how it is with us. When God plants a vision in our lives, it doesn’t come into full reality straight away, but it’s worked out over time. We often may come up against closed doors. If we give up and think maybe we never heard right in the first place, we would never come into the new opportunities God has for us. We need to continue to walk by faith, knowing God is moving us in this direction, even when it seems nothing is happening. The vision will never come into reality if we don’t continue walking, trusting in God.
