“I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.” Revelation 3:8
Discouragement over regrets, missed opportunities, closed doors, and over being told “no”, is at an all time high. Many people are feeling discouraged today and negative thoughts are pouring into their minds like a rainstorm. We must rebuke discouragement as soon as it raises its ugly head. We must encourage ourselves in the Lord. God is still on the throne and you are who God said you are. You have what He said you have. You will do everything He has set out for you to do. You are on the winning side! That makes you a winner! Don’t let the spirit of discouragement talk in your ear any longer. Only listen to the comforting and reassuring voice of His Holy Spirit. He will remind you that you don’t serve no small God. You serve the King of kings and the Lord of lords, and what your King has already approved for you, no one can disapprove. What He has ordained for you to receive, no one deny you of it. When God decrees a blessing for you, all of heaven knows it and all of heaven expects you to agree with it, go after it and receive it by faith. Your assigned angel is ready to go before you and prosper your way, but you have to send your angel forth. Don’t sit at any closed doors feeling down, discouraged, and defeated. No man can close a door that God has laid open before you. It doesn’t matter what man has said about it. What God has spoken to your heart, whispered in your ear and shown you in His Word is all that matters! Be encouraged. Be determined. Be persistent. Everything God has for you is yours for the taking!
Prayer: Father God, I thank You for encouraging me today by Your Spirit. I rebuke the spirit of discouragement right now and I yield to Your Holy Spirit. Help me to go through every open door You have laid before me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
