Topic: He Walks Through Doors
On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you! – John 20:19, NIV
Joel Osteen | 15th December 2021 Devotional Message
In John 20, Jesus had just risen from the dead. One evening the disciples were huddled together in a room behind locked doors for fear of being arrested. They did everything they could to keep people out, but Jesus suddenly walked through the door. He didn’t unlock it, open it, or try to beat it down. He just came through it. God was showing us that closed doors can’t keep us from what He has for us.
A loved one may have shut the door in your relationship. How you were raised may have closed the door, seemingly putting you at a disadvantage. Forces of darkness may have locked the door, trying to keep you addicted. It’s been that way a long time. The door is locked with a deadbolt. The good news is that God comes through doors. He’s not limited by what’s limiting us. We’re natural; He’s supernatural. Closed doors can’t stop you. God is going to walk right through it. He’s not going to let you miss your destiny.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You see every detail of my life, and You know when I’m fearful and hiding behind closed doors. Thank You that any of the closed rooms in my life are still wide open to You. I invite You to come into all the rooms of my life and be Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
