KNOCKING ON HEAVENS DOOR
KNOCKING ON HEAVENS DOOR:
I hate it when I go to a specialty store and the sign says they are closed. It is frustrating when our plans donít work out. Guess thatís how it was when Job was trying to talk to Jehovah for months and he didnít get an answer - the door was shut.
Abram had a very good relationship with the Almighty - he even got positive responses about he and Sarai having children - Yahweh just didnít get around to following through for twenty some years. The phone was off the hook.
Even though scripture says ďBefore we call He will answerĒ sometimes the Most High chooses not to respond quickly. Sometimes God takes a long time, a long, long time - like the store was closed.
David was anointed King, but had to flee for his life for over a decade before he ever wore a crown. Joseph had a dream of his family bowing to him, but that too took decades to come to pass - the doorbell was broken!
Moses realized he was to have a part in Israelís deliverance, but he had to wait forty years until the time was right. It is true God sees every sparrow, but He doesnít always respond. Sometimes the door is locked.
Waiting and trusting anyway must teach us something we need to learn, because it is a pretty common experience in scripture. Believing even when we canít see an answer demonstrates trust like nothing else.
