From last week’s post, the truth is we got in there by being smooth operators. Like Jacob, I’d worn a disguise. I was the wrong man, but I had the right feeling. Of course, after we got in, we had to believe God would help us pay for it, because that place was something. God did help us. We were never late with a payment. You have to make the leap in your own mind, and then you have to do whatever it takes to make it happen. God will honor it once you’re full of the feeling.
We continued to feel our way through. We felt our way into Brooklyn and purchased a building there. We didn’t know how we were able to do that, because the facts didn’t add up. But the feeling was strong. We purchased a building and a house in the same month, we paid it off in three years, and then we felt our way back. The next thing we knew, we were appearing on Sunday morning BET. We had felt our way right onto television. All over Brooklyn, people were saying about me, “He’s the wrong person.”
If I were the wrong person, those things wouldn’t have happened. God would have shut those doors and we can never really do anything to open the doors God shut. It’s not biblical to say, “When God shuts a door, he opens a window.” No, when God shuts a door, no one can open it. No one can force their way through what is against the will of the Lord. But when He opens a door, God will say, “See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut” (Rev. 3:8).
The door will always be open for you, if God wills it for you. However, God did not say He’ll push you through that door. If you don’t feel the open door is for you, then you won’t go through it. Even when God intends you to, if you don’t choose to obey because you trusted your deceitful heart, rather than His prophetic word, then you will miss out on what is on the other side of that door.
Have you been looking for an open door to be used for the Lord’s Kingdom? Won’t it benefit you to operate in the prophetic in all areas of your life. This year, I want to gift you this FREE Course and experience the Power of Prophecy as a gift to open your mind to receive the Mind of Christ.
