Faith means closing all other doors

Sometimes we are waiting for the Lord to manifest the next season in our lives when we have not closed all the other opens doors.

Here are some examples of what I mean: If you have two or three  job offers and you decide on the job that you are going to accept you have to close the other doors. Even if the one you select doesn’t work out, you still have to let the other employers know your descision. You can’t keep all the perpective employers waiting. You call them up and tell them sorry but I have another offer and I’m not takng this job, but thank you for the opportunity”.

It’s also like a man contemplating a friendship/relationship with a woman. When it’s time to focus, he can’t keep several women dangling by a string (although many men do that all the time). He needs to be focused in one direction at least for that season. Even if the relationship doesn’t work out.

Well those are natural anologies of what our faith has to be like. Faith has to be focused. My former Bishop used to say if you have two visions it’s a di-vision. So we have to be focused or God will not release that thing to us. Listen it can’t be business as usual. This time you have to be serious.  In the spirit realm our blessing is hindered when we have not closed all doors.

God sees all and knows all, so sometimes we think we are waiting on God or something or somebody, when actually he is waiting for us to operate in faith and close all doors.

It’s time to close the doors on what is not of faith and the time is now so that the change can take place. And when God sees that your heart is in the right place then and only then will He release the blessing.

Romans 14:23:

23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
