A GREAT AND EFFECTIVE DOOR
1 COR. 16:9
In Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, he related how God opened the door of ministerial success to him in Ephesus.
Door here signifies opportunities and divine provision.
It’s the door of service…May the Lord open to you, the door of service.
Like David, you will serve your generation according to the will of God.
This door must be opened unto you before you can make any meaningful impact in life.
It’s the door of ministry, and it is accessed on the platform of mercy (2 Cor. 4:1).
Apostle Paul also spoke about the door of utterance (Colossians 4:3) and the door of faith (Acts 14:27).
For every open door we experience on earth, there must have been an open door in heaven. This door is not opened by man, it’s opened by the Almighty God (Rev. 3:7-8; 4:1).
‘……And there are many adversaries’
Adversaries will surely come to distract or dissuade you, as you prepare to step into your God-given inheritance. You must hold on to the Word of God.
Some of the ‘many adversaries’ we need to watch out for include the following:
The devil, the world, sin, the flesh, tradition of men….
Like Apostle Paul, we must forget the things of the past and reach out for the things ahead….pressing towards the mark for the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus (Phil 3:13-14).
STEP INTO THE PLACE THAT GOD HAS ASSIGNED FOR YOU
