Amongst what may seem to be more ranting, for God rebukes Sardis for they are dead and rebukes Laodiceans for they are neither hot nor cold, it seems as if God pauses over the church of Philedelphia. To them He proclaims that He will make the hypocrits bow before them and He declares His love for them.
Then God speaks a word that should give is all hope and direction, for He says that a door which He opens, no man can shut and one which He shuts, no man can open. Wow! I wish we would learn to pay close attention to that statement.
How often in life don't we come to road blocks, doors in our lives that are shut so tight that we couldn't open them ourselves if we tried, and what do we do? We stand and knock, bash and cry at the door as if by this behaviour we would change God's mind. No! It is time we recognize the intent of God in that situation and simply walk away.
Don't waste any more time bashing on doors God has shut. Look up, ask God for direction and move on to the next door. Believe in your heart that when God is fully satisfied that you are on the right path, He will open the right door for you and when you go through that door, you will walk in the full blessing of God!
