Pray . . . Wait . . . Trust . . .

Standard

Why is it that we pray for God to open doors for us and when He does we are afraid to step through them.  I’m laughing with one of my girlfriends.  We just had that conversation this morning.  She and her husband currently live in So. Carolina and were planning on moving back to Colorado.  Through prayer this summer, it looked like they were moving back.  God closed the door to Colorado but opened a door in Texas.  One of  her daughter’s and her family is now moving to Texas.  She told me she got a job offer last night from the Dallas office.  Wow!!  Would totally seem like a “no-brainer”, and yet she told me about the fear she went through last night thinking about it (she’s back on track this morning – she has great faith).

I think back about my move to Colorado from California.  God opened EVERY door for me to make that move 17 years ago. It WAS a “no-brainer”.  It was totally scary but after seeing how “present” He was in my life there was no way that I couldn’t step through those doors in faith, trusting Him.  We pray for job opportunities, relationships, health concerns . . . He opens the doors and it’s up to us to walk through them.  Fear is not something that comes from God.  He really does love us!  He really does want the best for us! So, if you have prayed and there is a door that’s been opened . . . walk through it . . . what do you have to lose?
