He opens doors no man can shut!

Have you found yourself in a position of needing to change, but you have become comfortable and honestly do not want to move.  I find that the reason of being comfortable is usually the number one reason most people do not change, however, it is really not being comfortable, it is more a spirit of fear.  As we face unfamiliarity, rather than decide to go forward and face fears, we choose rather to set back in what is familiar.   Most may not be happy where they are currently in life, but rather than face what is next, they dig their heels in like a stubborn Kentucky mule.

Oops, yes I said it!  You may have been able to keep your position based on your stubbornness, which is all fine and good if you are trying to please yourself, but let’s get honest.  Are we put on this planet to just please ourselves?  Have you found joy in pleasing yourself?

When I think of stubbornness I think about what the word of God says about it:

1 Samuel 15:22 (KJV)And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

I Samuel 15:23 (KJV)  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

In this scripture the Lord had promotion in mind for Saul, but stubbornness and rebellion prevented Saul from being King.  So I ask you, How is your stubbornness and rebellion preventing you from going forward?  May I suggest that if you repent, trust the Lord with your whole heart and life, fear will no longer have a place.  The Lord has only good things for you! He has an open door for you to walk through!

Revelation 3:8 (KJV) I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
