God’s Plans are Better - October 11, 2016

God uses closed doors to advance his cause! God closed the womb of a young Sarah so he could display his power to the elderly one. He shut the palace door on Moses the prince so he could open shackles through Moses the liberator. And Jesus…yes, even Jesus knew the challenge of a blocked door. When he requested a path that bypassed the cross, God said no. God said no to Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane so he could say yes to us at the gates of heaven.

God’s goal is people. He will stir up a storm to display his power. He’ll place you in prison so you’ll talk to the jailer. It’s not that our plans are bad but that God’s plans are always better. Your blocked door doesn’t mean God doesn’t love you. Quite the opposite. It’s proof that he does.

From God is With You Every Day
