Beware of that door of opportunity ?...

What is a door and why are  doors  important?

Literally doors are generally used to separate interior spaces (closets, rooms, etc.) for convenience, privacy, safety, and security reasons. 

Doors are also used to secure passages into a building from the exterior, for reasons of climate control and safety.

The door sure has diverse Meanings. For instance, there is a Bible verses that says:

God will open doors for me if I open doors for others.

The Bible says in Proverbs 11:25, "Be generous, and you will be prosperous. Help others, and you will be helped". That is another angle to it, but that isn't where we are going today. 

But , in this context, we are talking about door of opportunities...

What do such doors symbolize in the Bible?

In the Bible, doors are metaphors for the choices we make every day. We discover early on in life that we can walk through some doors and not others. But we need to make a decision each time we see a door. Our  destiny will be shaped by which doors I walk past and which doors I walk through...

The bottomline here is that, you need to walk past some doors and you need to walk through some doors. The onus bow lies on you to know which doors to walk through and which doors to walk past..May the Lord God guide us to walk through the right door.

Let me say this, I have  heard a lot of men of God talk about the need to be wary of some doors. According to them ,it is not every doors that opens one should enter, because it could  be a door  to prison...  

I was alao under a Ministratiom where the issue of doors was the crux of mesaage at a programme I attended  not long ago and I said this I s a point worth noting...That is why i deceided to expand on it giving this opportunity.

Besides, I had also had personal encounters on the issue, part of which I will relate the course of this exhortation..

In his sermon , one of the men of God Bishop Okunlola of the " Ire Owuro fame  said we  should be wary of doors. He said there was a person  in that congregation that day  that saw a very juicy  opportunity and was ready to opt for it, but he warned that  God said  that door was not directly opened by him. He also adds that  the person should be wary of falling for that  opportunity  else it may ruin him. He also said that the opportunity will be so juicy that  the person finds it so irresistible, but it is a door to destruction and ruination.

What then  is the secret of the divine open doors?

Prayer is the secret to an open door. It is always said that Prayer is the Master Key.

My Personal Encounter.

First , it was a friend who came from the United States of America and she had a large piece of land at Ijebu and she wanted me to come over and advice on how to manage the farm because those who were managing it were doing a disservice to the farm .

I  had assured her of coming iver with a Consultnt on a particular Sunday. As a result, i had gone to get my Drivers Licence ready, I did some repairs on my car and I fuelled the car, travel ready. On the night before the trip , i went for a vigil and along the way the car developed another major fault. No doubt, it was a new door and a juicy one for that matter, but there are signs that the Holy Spirit was not please with me going on that journey. 

After the car had issue, I resolved within myself that I will go on public transport . Later, I told my Spiritual father to help me pray about it and he said I should be careful telling me to also pray over it before I sleep.. At night, during my prayer session, the Holy Spirit said , he had been showing me all the signs but I refused ro heed. He now said , what if I go on  that trip and I was taken back dead...Then, I was scared. It was there and then that I knew that the trouble with the car the night before was the design of the Holy  Spirit to prevent me from going on that trip .Can you now see that not all doors are to be entered?
What is the powerful prayer to open doors?

Father, let your favor open doors of joy and miracles for me in Jesus name  By favor of God upon my life, never again will I suffer closed doors in Jesus name.  Father, like queen Esther, let your favor trigger unsolicited help for me in Jesus name 

How do you know when God is opening a door?

Revelation 3:8 

 'I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

The above is the promise of God for us , but at the same time he also warned us to be wary of entering doors..

Which scripture talks about open doors?
Isaiah 60:11 In-Context

 Your doors will be opened at all times; they will not be shut day or night; so that men may come into you with the wealth of the nations, with their kings at their head

The Wide and Narrow Doors - Matthew 7:13-14

Jesus taught that many people are on the path to death and destruction that they reached through the wide door. Our hope and prayer is that millions more will enter through the narrow door, which leads to eternal life.
What does the Bible say about open and closed doors?

If you trust in Jesus; He is the one who opens and closes doors in your life: “What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open” (Revelation 2:7b NIV). Therefore, be sure and fully convinced that the closed doors in your life are His doing
