Leave That Closed Door Alone

Why do we constantly knock on that door when the Lord has already said no?

I think the reason as to why we do it is that we are wanting to see if we can go through the door. Or we misunderstood the Lord. I can sit here and produce many excuses as to why we do it.

Over the last two weeks I have been experiencing this. I have been seeking God for an answer. The Lord gave me my answer, His answer was no. But I kept knocking on that door anyway, as if God does not see me trying to make it happen.

Funny thing is that every moment I tried to see if that door would open, I could not get it to open. Being honest I wore myself out so much within those two weeks that on yesterday I woke up with a migraine. I have not had one of them in years. I knew then that I had caused this unnecessary stress. I take all the blame.

As my mother would always tell us,” Stop testing God,” my mother always had words of wisdom. All day yesterday I just laid around and rested to get this migraine to go away. Finally, that evening it went away. Not because of medicine, which does ease the pain. It went away the moment I said Lord, no more. I am done with trying to open that door.

Even in our wants God never holds it against us. He still loves us. See, He loved me that much to not let my wants hurt me. And for that I am blessed. In closing may you be encouraged that no matter what God always gives us what is best for us, even when He says “NO”


Have a blessed Saturday
