BLESSED BEYOND CURSE (PART 26B) – THE HAND OF GOD
The doors that God opens are usually doors of good things; doors of blessings, doors of promotion, doors of provision, doors of his perfection, doors of his supernatural abundance, doors of international connections and so on. The doors keep swinging open not because of you but because of the hand of God upon your life. Isa. 45:1-3 says, “Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: and I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.” The gates of blessing that God will open for you shall never be shut in the name of Jesus. When I travelled to the United States of America for series of trainings in 1991, one day, I went out with one of my instructors to visit the major industrial part of Kodak, back then a very massive industrial area. My instructor was driving and speeding at top speed but I trusted his judgment and as we approached a very massive gate, I expected him to at least slow down but on the contrary, he continued and as we got closer to the gate, he brought out his identity card and waved it across the gate and to my surprise, the gate opened effortlessly; one towards the right and the other towards the left and he just drove through. I was dazed because I had never seen that kind of technology before (that was about twenty-eight years ago though), so I mustered enough courage and asked him exactly what was in the card that swung the gates open. He explained to me that the card had an electronic eye, a sensor which was in form of a black straight line on the card and that was the sensor that communicated with the gate and it opened. He was so confident that the gate would open that was why he maintained the same speed. This narrative is to enable you visualize the doors that God will open for you. I believe that open doors are much better than breakthroughs because in breakthroughs, you need a lot of effort for there to be a release but open door is effortless. That is what the hand of God will do in your life; because of the hand of God, it will be so sweet and so effortless and the good thing is that it will remain open. The hand of God is the invisible power that commands the door to open no matter how securely it is locked and it will remain open.
Heavenly Father I worship you. I bless and magnify your Holy name. Let your hand be with me all the days of my life to open every door of opportunity that the enemy has locked against me. Grant me the grace to recover all my blessings that have been tampered with by the hand of the wicked in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen
